Wear-free, non-contact power transfer
Many applications require high energy transmission without contact. The Balluff BIC inductive coupler is an optimal choice to achieve this, as it transmits electrical power of up to 120 W from the stationary unit (base) via an air gap to the mobile unit (remote). The transmission distances between base and remote can be up to 4 mm, with a permissible axial offset of ≤ 4 mm.
The BIC system has an internal temperature monitoring functionality to protect the inductive coupler from overheating. After triggering the temperature monitoring, the automatic restart returns power as soon as the system has cooled down. In the event of a short circuit or overcurrent, the energy transfer is switched off at the base unit. The restart will start automatically when the interference has been eliminated. To visualize the operating state, an LED display is integrated at the base side.
