Contactless transmission of data and energy with inductive couplers

Inductive coupling systems are the ideal choice wherever fixed wiring of sensors and actuators gets in the way or is subject to premature wear due to fatigue. With their new BIC Q40 inductive couplers, Balluff now offers a solution for applications where the maximum transmittable power plays a central role.
The new BIC Q40 inductive couplers can transmit up to 40 W of power at 1.7 A continuous output current
In robotics, the inductive couplers can transmit both energy and IO-Link signals for the control of grippers completely contactless over an air gap – safely and quickly.
With up to 1.7 A continuous current the system can provide up to 40 W of power. This is 3 times that of common couplers on the market. Thanks to its IO-Link interface the system assists in smooth and fast exchange of events, parameter and process data between the IO-Link device and IO-Link master.
Data transmission is transparent, with no configuration of the IO-Link coupler necessary. By supporting COM3 the system also enables the fastest possible data exchange. Bi-directional communication which sends the data in both directions means you can for example control actuators and valve terminals at the same time while also collecting signals.
And in combination with a corresponding IO-Link master virtually any common fieldbus system can be used. ds
