Contactlessly transmit power and data
Fixed wiring of sensors and actuators has disadvantages. Cables and contacts are frequently heavily stressed in automation so that cables can weaken and break, therefore resulting in a machine stoppage.
Our inductive coupler BICs transmit data and power contactlessly across an air gap. Thus, no mechanical wear is produced. The system availability is higher, the cycle times are shorter, the sequences are more flexible. The units can quickly be disconnected, are easy to handle and maintenance-free. enabling you to meet new demands quickly.
With inductive couplers, power and data are transferred contactlessly across an air gap. This renders mechanical plug-in contacts superfluous. If our bidirectional coupling system is used with IO-Link, the data can also be transmitted in both directions.
The contact-free signal transmission on IO-Link Standard is transparently structured: The system performs "invisibly" and does not have to be configured. You can very easily integrate it between IO-Link-Master and IO-Link-Device and communicate immediately.
The system has a complete IO-Link interface, regardless of the IO-Link version. Events, parameters and process data are therefore exchanged directly between master and device.
Our inductive coupler system is designed for up to eight sensor signals and eight actuator drive signals.
The system is bi-directional, which means it transmits signals in both directions. Its remote unit can drive on an individual basis and operate clamping units. From the base up to eight signals are transferable, four channels can be driven independent of each other.
Fast format changes are exceptionally important for high productivity. However, these are often made substantially more difficult through plug-in contacts, for example with the gripper changes on the robot.
Our inductive couplers transmit power contactlessly across an air gap. Mechanical plug contacts are therefore superfluous. This ensures freedom from wear, guarantees prompt tool change and provides great flexibility.
The inductive IO-Link coupler from Balluff in the compact 40x40 housing is ideal for robotics. It combines rapid format changes, freedom of wear and great flexibility.
Mechanical plug connections are rendered superfluous with inductive couplers because they transfer these signals without contact.
The IO-Link interface of the compact inductive coupler makes installation extremely simple. This is because IO-Link is quickly wired.
