TE Connectivity™ (TE) has introduced a family of contactless connectors for applications in which limitations due to space restrictions, or exposure to vibration, dust and dirt, make the use of traditional contacting connectors undesirable.
TE’s ARISO™ Contactless Connectivity platform is a hybrid interconnection system, based on contactless power and data technology, which can easily connect over a short distance without a physical connection. The contactless connectors, which can replace complex and expensive harness constructions and slip rings, are immune to vibration, pollutants and harsh environments, and are unconfined by movement restrictions.
This offers design flexibility while reducing the time and effort required for maintenance and installation, and enables developers to design in connectivity in situations in which it was not possible before.
The ARISO Contactless Connectivity platform can also be used to easily build on-the-fly connections, such as when connecting remote I/Os or sensors on moving machine parts which require quick connections and immediate system response.
It also eliminates any limit on the number of mating cycles in wet or dusty environments, since it has physically separated coupler ends.
