This eliminates the need for mechanical slip rings without needing the maintenance that slip rings often require. The couplers’ IP67 rating allows them to stand up to harsh environments, including oil and water, and internal temperature monitoring keeps them from overheating. Suggested uses include battery charging stations for automated guided vehicles (AGVs), automated tool changers, and robotic end effecters with high power requirements. The units feature LED visualization of operating status. The BIC0073 and BIC0075 are base units, transmitting power to BIC0074 and BIC0076 remote units, differing in number of connector poles.
Inductive Couplers Provide Reliable Non-Contact Power Transfer
Balluff’s BIC0073, BIC0074, BIC0075, and BIC0076 transmit up to 120 W—5 A at 24 VDC—from the base unit to a remote unit across an air gap.
