Reliable contactless power supply system with our own MOVITRANS® system solution

Do your systems span lengthy distances? Meaning that you need to transport your goods at high speed? Do you want to avoid contamination caused by energy transfer in contamination-sensitive areas?

Then MOVITRANS® is the perfect power supply system for you. It operates on the principle of inductive energy transfer. Electrical energy is transferred from a fixed conductor to one or more mobile consumers without contact. Time-consuming, cumbersome drag-chain systems have become a thing of the past.

The electromagnetic connection is made via an air gap and is maintenance-free and wear-free. This contactless energy supply enables high speeds of more than 10 m/s. And as line cables are routed under the floor, there are no longer any obstacles disrupting transverse traffic.

Another major advantage: this type of power supply is emission-free and resistant to contamination. The system does not produce any noise emissions either. All of this contributes significantly to higher productivity levels, as maintenance and installation are more efficient.

Cost savings on project planning, assembly, and startup

Achieve cost efficiencies thanks to our lean, compelling system design, from simple track segmentation to flexible track design with curves and points. Fast, easy assembly also cuts costs, as only two cables have to be routed along the travel distance.

The use of the MOVITOOLS® engineering software means that starting up and using the technology is extremely simple.

Perfect for materials handling

MOVITRANS® comprises both stationary and mobile system components. These can be integrated into existing automation systems quickly and easily.

If the line cable is routed on or under the floor, flat pick-ups are used. The air gap between the line cable and the pick-up can be up to 20 mm. This enables high transmission power even in situations where the pick-up does not always occur at a constant distance above the line cable.

U-shaped pick-ups are required if there is limited installation space available, or if the operator wishes to replace an existing conductor rail system with a contactless energy transfer system. In such cases, the line cable is always routed in a profile section system. As the U-shaped pick-up "surrounds" the cable, it can achieve very high transmission power in proportion to its compact size. The air gap between line cable and pick-up is about 10 mm in all directions.
