Burnt, bent or dirty contacts are often the cause of timeconsuming and costly production failures. This is all the more true of applications requiring frequent plugging cycles. To name but one example, these include industrial robots performing frequent tool changes. Here, the level of wear is especially high.
FreeCon Contactless allows power to be transmitted via an air gap by means of an inductive resonance coupling – it’s a solution that’s completely wear-free and especially efficient. Double the power density and a far higher degree of efficiency is achieved compared with comparable solutions that are available on the market.
Thanks to FreeCon Contactless, you can avoid contactrelated failures and cut your maintenance costs considerably. It even opens up completely new areas
Industrial robots often perform several hundred tool changes per day. In this regard, conventional contacts are subjected to high levels of wear. With FreeCon Contactless, you benefit from a reliable and maintenance-free connection.
of application, since for the first time ever an automated process can be used to establish a connection which previously would have to be plugged manually. The process of charging driverless transport systems, for instance, can be automated. Highmaintenance slip ring transmitters can be replaced too, since FreeCon Contactless securely transmits power even in the case of rotational movements.
Wear-free electrical connection that can be switched as part of a controlled process
FreeCon Contactless enables reliable and contactless transmission of up to 240 W of power with compact dimensions and maximum efficiency. The transmission can even be controlled via PLC. It is therefore possible to switch 10 A directly via the PLC without the need for an additional contactor.
Flexible mounting options
Fastening can optionally take place on three different sides by means of direct mounting on the relevant machine component, or by using a mounting bracket or a groove profile. This allows for maximum flexibility during installation.
High flexibility thanks to unlimited approach options
The secondary side can be approached by the primary side from any direction. The connection is established as soon as both modules are positioned opposite one another. The connection remains stable even in the event of rotational movements.
High power density with maximum efficiency
For the first time ever, 240 W of power can be
transmitted contactlessly via two especially small modules. Extremely low transmission losses translate into an efficiency level of up to ≥ 90 %.
Complete protection against humidity and dirt
Unlike conventional plug-in connections, which only provide IP 20 protection when unplugged and are therefore unprotected, FreeCon Contactless offers IP 65 – permanently. So, with FreeCon Contactless, contacting problems caused by dirt are a thing of the past.
Fast commissioning with PROFINET PushPull Power connection
Our proven standard plug-in connector for 24 V DC applications enables fast installation and ensures that the modules are provided with a secure and reliable supply.
