FreeCon Contactless opens up new automation prospects

By means of inductive resonance coupling, FreeCon Contactless enables reliable and contactless transmission of up to 240 W of power in an automated process. Within the multitude of advantages, it helps increase the level of automation and optimises the production process by avoiding contact-related failures and reducing maintenance costs. This makes, for instance, the automation of the process of charging driverless transport systems.
