Press Release – published 17th April 2020

A specialist test system for slip ring manufacturers has been launched. The SRT (Slip Ring Tester) replaces the legacy brand used widely across the industry which is no longer commercially available.

Designed and manufactured by MK Test Systems, the new tester has been developed with input from several global slip ring manufacturers and reduces common testing issues such as resistive noise.

 Jason Evans, Sales Director at MK Test Systems, said:

“We have been approached several times over the years by slip ring makers wanting a better solution for their testing. It’s been a long term project, and our perseverance has paid off.  To be able to offer a system that can handle this niche and complex set of requirements is fantastic.”

He added: “The slip ring market is growing due to the increased use of wind turbines and so on, so the demand for improved testing has also increased. It’s exciting to be a part of this industry.”
