August 15, 2019 — Balluff’s latest inductive coupler systems transmit high-level electrical power (up to 120 W, 5 A at 24 VDC) from the base unit to a remote unit across an air gap. This makes them a choice for noncontact, high-power transmission applications.
These inductive couplers (BIC0073, BIC0074, BIC0075, and BIC0076) eliminate the need for mechanical slip rings. Their IP67 rating allows them to stand up to harsh environments, including oil and water, and internal temperature monitoring keeps them from overheating.
Uses include battery charging stations for automated guided vehicles (AGVs), automated tool changers and robotic end effecters with high power requirements.
