Due to increasing automation, more and more electromechanical systems used in industrial plants are being connected to one another. Cables and plug contacts are often under considerable stress, causing cables to deteriorate or even break, and overused plug contacts to fail, resulting in machine downtime.
The advantage of contactless transmission is that inflexible electromechanical couplings are no longer required while the radio technology offers a high degree of additional flexibility. For example, at times when systems need to be changed.
Previously, however, wireless transmissions using Bluetooth, WLAN, wireless IO-Link, ZigBee etc. have not always met all the necessary requirements.
RoProxCon is an innovative connection system that bridges construction-related air gaps in situations when radio transmission must be in the mm wave range with high interference immunity, and there is a requirement for low maintenance and no wear. With RoProxCon, existing applications can be improved while also allowing new solutions to be created for previously unrealisable scenarios.
