Honeybee Robotics’ twist capsule (also known as a “flex capsule”) allows for power and signal to be transferred across a rotating interface. A twist capsule is commonly used as a simpler, more reliable, and cost-effective alternative to slip rings where continuous rotation is not required. Integral hard-stops prevent handling or command errors during integration and testing from damaging the internal flex circuits. The twist capsule is a stand-alone component which can be simply bolted on to mechanisms such as SADAs and gimbals or more tightly integrated to optimize for mass and volume. Many sizes, rotational ranges, circuit counts, and power capacities are available.
Honeybee has developed a TRL-9 Twist Capsule for the NASA Glory Mission and offers both off-the-shelf and custom twist capsules to meet customers’ needs.PRODUCT SPECS PDF LEARN ABOUT OUR SLIP RINGS CONTACT US
