FreeCon Contactless allows power to be transmitted via an 'air gap' by means of an inductive resonance coupling. This is a solution that's completely wear-free and particularly efficient. By doubling the power density, the line can obtain a far higher degree of efficiency compared with comparable solutions that are available on the market.
Unlike conventional plug-in connections, which only provide IP 20 protection when unplugged and are therefore unprotected, FreeCon Contactless offers IP 65 - permanently. FreeCon Contactless also enables reliable and contactless transmission of up to 240 W of power with compact dimensions and maximum efficiency. The transmission can even be controlled via PLC. It is therefore possible to switch 10 A directly via the PLC without the need for further contactors.
