Outgassing of materials in vacuum is often treated neglectfully. Typically, only one side of the equation is considered, such as the loss of oil in a bearing. However, the potentially fatal consequences of oil resublimation onto an optical instrument may be ignored. - There is no one in space to wipe down a lens that has a hazy film of oil on it. As a rule of thumb, warm surfaces are more likely to outgas [...]

The mysteries of slip rings

By |2023-11-20T14:52:05+01:0020. November 2023|Consulting, Energy, Industry, Space|

A slip ring (in electrical engineering terms) is a method of making an electrical connection through a rotating assembly. Slip rings, also called rotary electrical interfaces, rotating electrical connectors, collectors, swivels, or electrical rotary joints, are commonly found in all rotary systems with electrical connections of sensors and receptors. They are a common building block in terrestrial and space applications, e.g. wind turbines, computer tomography scanners, solar arrays in space and many more. Tribological characterization [...]
