Title (EN) SURGICAL SHAFT ASSEMBLIES WITH SLIP RING ASSEMBLIES WITH INCREASED CONTACT PRESSURE
(FR) ENSEMBLES ARBRES CHIRURGICAUX AVEC ENSEMBLES ANNEAUX DE GLISSEMENT À PRESSION DE CONTACT ACCRUE
Abstract:
(EN) A slip ring assembly is usable with a surgical shaft assembly. The slip ring assembly includes a first connector flange comprising a conductor. The slip ring assembly further includes a second connector flange comprising a conductive element in contact with the conductor, wherein the second connector flange is rotatable relative to the first connector flange. In addition, the slip ring assembly also includes a support member, wherein the second connector flange is sandwiched between the first connector flange and the support member, and wherein the support member is configured to apply a load onto the second connector flange to maintain the contact between the conductor and the conductive element.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ensemble anneau de glissement pouvant être utilisé avec un ensemble arbre chirurgical. L’ensemble anneau de glissement comprend une première collerette de connecteur comprenant un conducteur. L’ensemble anneau de glissement comprend en outre une seconde collerette de connecteur comprenant un élément conducteur en contact avec le conducteur, la seconde collerette de connecteur pouvant tourner par rapport à la première collerette de connecteur. De plus, l’ensemble anneau de glissement comprend également un élément de support, la seconde collerette de connecteur étant prise en sandwich entre la première collerette de connecteur et l’élément de support, et l’élément de support étant configuré pour appliquer une charge sur la seconde collerette de connecteur afin de maintenir le contact entre le conducteur et l’élément conducteur.
