Contact-free technology carries power, signals and data

23 March, 2013

Operate in tough environments The hermetically sealed system is not susceptible to dirt, dust or chemical fluids.

• Scale to any application TE can design customer-specific contactless connection systems.

Eliminate design barriers In robotic applications, for example, the rotational freedom of the contactless connections allows quicker mating cycles and increased productivity.

Transfer power and signals through fluids and walls In applications such as underwater sensors, parts can be replaced in situ.

Minimise risks in flammable environments Plugging and disconnecting conventional connectors under load can generate small arcs that can lead to explosions. The contactless technology cannot create an arc because it generates a magnetic rather than an electric field.
