Application of conductive slip rings in radar

      The conductive slip ring is a special rotating joint whose main function is to conduct power signals and control signals between rotating parts. In radar, conductive slip rings are widely used in radar antenna rotation systems, radar laser tracking systems, radar altimeters and other equipment. Conductive slip rings also have the advantages of large amount of data transmission, strong anti-interference ability, long life and high reliability. Therefore, in the field of radar, conductive slip rings have become one of the indispensable and important components.

      The characteristic of conductive slip ring is that it can realize contactless transmission of power signals and control signals. In a radar antenna rotation system, the antenna needs to continuously communicate with targets pointing in different directions and transmit the received signals back to the radar control system for processing. In this process, the conductive slip ring can realize the rotation of the antenna and the transmission of signals without being limited by the rotation angle. This ensures the stability and accuracy of the radar antenna.

[2023 World Radar Expo]

       The 10th World Radar Expo and the 3rd “Radar and the Future” Global Summit are about to end at the Beijing Shougang Convention and Exhibition Center on April 15. In this expo, Jiujiang INGIANT Technology carries rotary connectors, radar sliding Environmental system products and customized solutions were unveiled at booth 2B44 in Hall 2. INGIANT Technology has demonstrated to customers the level of capabilities of radar slip ring system rotary connection solutions, attracting visits and exchanges from many well-known domestic enterprises and upstream industry chain partners, obtaining development needs from multiple users, and increasing INGIANT Technology’s brand awareness and influence. Strength, the future market expansion prospects are broad.

Parameters that need to be paid attention to when selecting conductive slip rings include:

1:Current and voltage: The current and voltage that the conductive slip ring needs to withstand must match the radar system to ensure the stability and reliability of the transmitted signal.

2.Speed: The maximum speed that the conductive slip ring can withstand must be adapted to the actual speed of the rotating components of the radar system to avoid signal distortion or mechanical failure caused by speed mismatch.

3.Wear resistance: As an important component connecting rotating parts, conductive slip rings need to have good wear resistance to extend the service life of conductive slip rings.

4.Number of rings: The number of rings of the conductive slip ring should match the needs of the radar system. Generally, the more rings, the stronger the signal transmission capability of the slip ring.

5.Ring material: The ring material of the conductive slip ring also needs to be considered. Generally, metal materials such as copper and aluminum are more common, but for some special applications, special materials such as corrosion resistance and high temperature resistance need to be selected.

      INGIANT Technology reminds you that you need to pay attention to the above parameters when using conductive slip rings in radar to ensure that the conductive slip rings match the radar system and can transmit signals stably and reliably.
