IDM Electronics, one of the largest slip ring suppliers in Europe, says there are many engineering problems where only slip rings can provide the solution.

Now Kaydon Corporation, parent company of IDM Electronics, has acquired Focal Technologies and thereby expanded IDM’s capabilities in rotary electrical and fibre optic signal transfer by combining Focal Technologies’ extensive line of fibre optic rotary solutions with the existing slip-ring product lines.

Nova Scotia-based Focal Technologies offers a complete line of fibre optic rotary joints, designed to transmit signals across rotating interfaces. The company claims this technology has great potential and expects to develop it for a variety of application areas.
