MOVITRANS® spot:
Even more peak power with point-based energy transfer

Looking to completely do away with conventional charging contacts? Would you rather make the track freely traversable in the available space and transfer energy to a battery or storage capacitor at specific points? Then we have the solution for you – MOVITRANS® spot. You can use this innovative system to ensure perfect, contactless energy transfer.

Secure high ground clearance and increase performance and flexibility

Components of the MOVITRANS® spot contactless energy transfer system
MOVITRANS® spot – for point-based, contactless energy transfer
MOVITRANS® spot – for point-based, contactless energy transfer

Our MOVITRANS® technology works on the principle of inductive energy transfer. This is where energy is transferred wirelessly and without contact through an air gap. As a result, the electromagnetic coupling is completely wear-free, low-noise and low-maintenance.

Contactless energy transfer is particularly useful in production facilities where machines and systems are flexibly connected over lengthy distances. In the past, high-maintenance conveyor belts or vehicles requiring a human driver were used for this task. Nowadays, mobile transport systems are used to easily bridge such distances. Our MOVITRANS® is the perfect power supply system for this very scenario. This is especially true in dusty and dirty areas.

Thanks to MOVITRANS®spot, the vehicles are not dependent on fixed tracks or line cables and can move autonomously and freely around the available space. All it takes is a stationary hold point above a field charging plate to inductively charge their energy storage units. Space-saving, quick and efficient. Thanks to this wear-free, low-maintenance form of energy transfer, MOVITRANS® spot ensures a particularly high ground clearance and flexibility, specially designed for mobile systems.

Safe disconnection

SAFS:
Safe disconnection of the power supply when the field plates are inactive

To prevent people from being exposed to invisible electromagnetic fields, our MOVITRANS® technology includes the unique "SAFS" safety function. This stands forSafe AC Field Stop (AC = alternating current). SAFS ensures the magnetic field is safely switched off if there is no vehicle on the hold point outside of the charging times, thus making the charging point field-free.

The SAFS function meets the requirements for safety level SIL2:

  • When the function is activated, no alternating current flows into the field plate and there is no electromagnetic alternating field.
  • To achieve this, a safe, dual-channel and disconnectable 24 V signal on one input blocks the output generating the high frequency.
  • The SAFS function corresponds to standard ISO 13849 at performance level d (PL d) and the IEC 61800-5-2 standard for drive systems.

The benefits for you

  • Flexible usage

    This is possible thanks to the innovative MOVITRANS® spot technology, which also allows for use in public spaces.
  • Optimized performance

    Systems can simply be charged when the load is transferred and, depending on the application, a variety of charging strategies and capacities are possible.
  • High ground clearance

    MOVITRANS® spot transfers energy through an air gap between the loading plate and the pick-up.
  • Easy customization

    MOVITRANS® spot can be easily adapted to suit changing system tasks and modifications thanks to its system modules.
  • Lower operating costs and higher energy efficiency

    MOVITRANS® spot is easy to use, sustainably minimizes maintenance costs and, thanks to its state-of-the-art component technologies, is highly efficient.

System features

MOVITRANS®spot is made up of both stationary and mobile system components. They can be quickly and easily integrated into existing automation systems. The nominal air gap between the point-based charging plate and the pick-up is 20 mm. This makes it possible to achieve high transmission power even with a high ground clearance.
