Yes this is true.....The slip ring and split ring both are made of copper, but their design differs from each other. The slip ring is a closed circular ring having brushes on their outer surface. In case of AC motor, the input current through the brush passes to slip ring which connects to the coil of the AC motor. Thus, the current flows from the static to the movable part.The split ring is made of copper and its split from the centre into two parts. The brushes connect across the outer diameter of the split ring. It is used in the DC motor for transferring the pulsating voltage.
