This is a 12 wire slip ring, a remarkably simple electromechanical assembly that allows electronic signals to be passed through its rotating innards. Commonly, you'd find slip rings in wind turbines, radar antennae, or anything else that requires continuous 360° rotation while maintaining an electrical connection. This particular slip ring provides you with a compact body with gold-on-gold alloy fiber brush to plated ring contacts inside.
Each Slip ring is capable of handling a continuous working speed of 250RPM, a current rating of 2A, and an operating voltage of 240VAC/VDC. We aren't kidding about how compact this little guy is, with only and outer diameter of 12mm for the body and 24mm diameter flange, you should have no issues fitting these into your next project. Additionally, the 220mm stranded wires protruding from each side of the slip ring have a thickness of 30AWG while the whole assembly has a water protection rating of IP51.
