Hi all. I am tinkering with a project that involves using through bore slip rings.
A standard installation will require 1x 16-channel 2A slip ring and 4x 4-channel 2A slip rings with 12VDC.
The 16-channel slip ring (8x live+ground pairs, and 8x signal pairs) will feed into the 4x 4-channel (1x live+ground pair, and 1x signal pair) slip rings. The slip rings will be installed in an aluminium frame.
I was wondering, will it be safe and functional to ground the frame (aluminium) in order to reduce the number of channels required? Effectively, eliminating the need for a ground wire in the slip ring.
