Maybe this is a little too application-specific than I thought, but I'm surprised that we've received very little response on this reader question. So I'm hoping that some of you have a few experience-based last-minute thoughts to pass along. Here's the reader question:
"We’ve relied on slip rings for many, many years to get essential signals from rotating segments of our equipment. Anyone who uses them in difficult, hot, dirty or less than perfect environmental settings struggles with maintenance and reliability. There’s pressure for us to provide more data and more precise and reliable data from these points. This makes both operational and support issues a problem. There are wireless alternatives, but we haven’t seen much evidence of them in tough, noisy environments. What do we need to know?"
There's stiil a little time to contribute your thoughts and advice here or email me.
