MOVITRANS® contactless energy transfer system

Components TPS / TAS / TCS / THM / TVS / TCS / TLS / TIS
MOVITRANS®, the contactless energy transfer system from SEW-EURODRIVE, works on the principle of inductive energy transfer. In this system, electrical energy is transferred without contact from a fixed conductor to one or more mobile consumers. The electromagnetic connection is made via an air gap and is not subject to wear; it is therefore maintenance-free.
Another big advantage: This type of power supply is emission-free and resistant to contamination from external sources. MOVITRANS® is the perfect supply system for all mobile applications and has been tested according to BGV B11.
MOVITRANS® is perfect when your equipment has to cover long distances at high speeds and maintenance-free operation is required. It is also suited for applications in sensitive environments where outside contaminants are not permitted and in wet and damp environments.
