What is the function of commutator or slip ring?


The function of commutator or slip ring is to change the direction of current through the coil after every half rotation.

Slip ring

A slip ring is an electrochemical system that enables signals and power to be transmitted from a stationary to a rotating structure, such as space satellites, gun turrets, electro-optic sensor gimbals, or radar antenna. That is, they are used in any electromechanical device that transmits power and involves rotation. It aids in the simplification of operations while also improving mechanical efficiency.
