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.
