5.9mm Sub-Micro Slip Ring with Adapter Boards
A Brickstuff Exclusive!
Power your rotating creations with this sub-micro slip ring—just 5.9mm in diameter. Works with or without the included LEGO® Technic brick so you can use it anywhere. Includes two adapter boards that separate the outputs into two independent circuits.
Power Anything That Rotates With Our Tiny Slip Ring
By customer request, we're offering our slip ring in a simple, easy-to-use configuration as a stand-alone item with small plugs on both ends and two adapter boards that allow two separate power circuits to be sent through the ring. This updated 2024 version of the kit uses small plugs, which means it will work with most 3rd-party lighting products on the market as well as with Brickstuff parts.
We've included a 1x4 LEGO® Technic brick with this pack, its center hole drilled just a little to allow the slip ring to fit, but you can also remove the ring from the brick and use it on its own in any LEGO or non-LEGO model.
To use, mount the slip ring in the center of your rotating thing, connect the adapters to both ends of the slip ring wire, and connect your lights or power to the plugs on the adapters. There are two separate circuits (one labeled "OUT1" and the other "OUT2"), so you can control two groups of lights separately. For example, you might want to have one circuit powering flashing lights on a carnival ride and the other circuit powering white interior lights—you could then turn either on or off individually.
This pack includes:
- One 5.9mm slip ring assembly with 4-wire micro connectors on either end. The slip ring is pre-mounted inside the center of a 1x4 LEGO Technic brick but can be removed for uses beyond LEGO.
- Two 2-circuit adapter boards with power indicator lights (one per circuit).
Lights, connecting cables for lights, adapter boards for lights, and power source sold separately.
