Product description

At the booth of the Fraunhofer Adaptronics Alliance the Fraunhofer IWU shows how the principle of electromagnetic induction can be exploit for
intelligent production of the future by demonstrating the example of a gripper which is moved vertically by a toothed belt. The belt contains integrated conductors transmitting energy to the gripper via induction in order to open or close it. Power transmission up to 100 Watt is possible as well as the provision of a supply voltage of 24 or 48 Volt for actuators. Data transmission takes place via Wireless Profinet Bridge. Since the toothed belt takes care of the energy supply, cables and electric contacts are no longer needed for supplying the gripper. By reducing the weight of the moved components, the system becomes more dynamic and in addition, energy is saved. The elimination of calibration work after battery changes also reduces the required maintenance. And yet the scientists go even further: via induction and Wireless Profinet Bridge, sensors and actuators can be supplied with power in air-tight and dust-free installation spaces or even in entirely encapsulated areas, and their data can be read.
