ARISO Contactless Connectivity

TE Connectivity defines “Contactless Connectivity” as “a hybrid interconnection system, based on both contact-less power and contact-less data technology, which can easily connect over a short distance without physical contact.”  Where traditional connectivity has reached its limits due to space restrictions, vibrations, dust and dirt, TE Connectivity's ARISO contactless connectivity can provide the highest design flexibility, reducing maintenance and installation efforts.  ARISO IP67 Contactless Connectivity can replace complex and expensive harness constructions and slip rings, enabling connectivity where connections were not possible before.  Issues typically affecting connectivity in harsh environments, such as water, dust or vibrations, will no longer impact the reliable delivery of power, data, and signal.

Features        
  •     Unlimited mating cycles in wet and dusty environments for reduced maintenance costs
  •     Power input reverse-polarity protection
  •     Power output short-circuit protection/data output short-circuit protection
  •     Data input/output reverse-polarity protection
  •     Over-temperature protection
  •     Foreign object protection
  •     Dynamic pairing
  •     In operating range/status, OK indication (12 position versions)
  •     Freedom of movement that includes tilt, angle, or misalignment
  •     Rotational freedom that enables faster rotation, around more than 360°
  •     Easy, on-the-fly connections, such as connecting remote IOs or sensors on moving machine parts
  •     Vibration resistance that enables safe and reliable connections in harsher environments
  •     Design flexibility and cost savings by transfer of power and signals through fluids and walls
Applications        
  •     Rotary tables and material handling
  •     Robotics and tool changing
  •     Where traditional connectors reach their limit
  •     Where slip rings or spring cables reach their limit
  •     New applications never seen before such as through walls and other materials
