Transport System Now Provides Contactless Power, Data

Sept. 29, 2022
The eXtended Transport System (XTS) product line from Beckhoff features contactless power supply and synchronous real-time data communication.

No Cable Technology (NCT) is an extension of the eXtended Transport System (XTS) product line. NCT provides contactless power supply and synchronous real-time data communication directly to XTS movers. This solution enables individual movers to serve as mobile handling and processing stations, essentially turning the intelligent transport system into a powerful, highly flexible multi-robot system.

The modular XTS solution has been expanded with NCT to include a special motor module as well as electronics that mount on the movers. The hardware required for the transmission technology is fully integrated into the motor module, so the system does not sacrifice any existing functionality or expand equipment footprint. No additional connections or supply lines are needed.
