New Inductive Couplers Deliver High Power Transmission

New Balluff Sensors Provide Non-Contact Data at Distances of Up to 12.5 mm

Florence, Kentucky (September 13, 2019) — Balluff’s newest Q40 inductive couplers provide increased power and IO-Link communication.

The system, consisting of a base (BIC007F) and remote (BIC007H), can handle transmission distances of up to 12.5 mm and delivers power up to 1.7 A for an output up to 40 W of power. That’s three times that of common couplers on the market.

With its IO-Link interface, the system delivers a smooth, fast exchange of events, parameters and process between the IO-Link device and the IO-Link master. By supporting COM3, the system provides the fastest data exchange possible, and bi-directional communication allows the user to simultaneously control the actuators and valve terminals, while also collecting signals.

Delivering non-contact transmission of data and power, the system can play a pivotal role in many applications including assembly lines, press automation, die sensing, robotic end effectors, turn tables and tool changes.

Key features include:

  • Compact block-style form factor
  • Power up to 1.7 A
  • Supports COM2 and COM3 operating modes — fastest IO-Link standard
  • Transmission distances between base and remote up to 12.5 mm
