Expert Answer:

Dear student,

A  split ring commutator (sometimes just called a commutator) is a simple and clever device for reversing the current direction through an  armature every half turn.

A slip ring is a method of making an electrical connection through a rotating assembly.  Slip  rings, also called rotary electrical interfaces, rotating electrical connectors, collectors, swivels or electrical rotary joints, are commonly found in  electric generators for Ac systems and alternators and in packaging machinery, cable reels, and wind turbines.
