“The chargers can be installed without major changes to the building structure. This is a big advantage, because many companies only rent the warehouse. We were also convinced by the high reliability and durability.” – Peter de Kiewit, Sales Director at Lowpad

WIRELESS, INDUCTIVE CHARGING FOR AGV, FORKLIFT AND INDUSTRIAL TRUCKS

Increase your vehicle availability with Wiferion’s wireless inductive charger. Our system can charge your entire fleet with just one charging station, no matter what voltage, current and even battery type they have as well as collect data on capacity, energy status and much more!

Why Wiferion?

We do not see the wireless inductive power coils as independent components, but as an integral part of the power electronics. Thanks to our in-depth knowledge of simulation and dimensioning of coils and electronics, we are able to develop highly efficient, compact charging systems for any application.

etaLINK 3000

Wireless charging with 3000 Watt

etaLINK 3000 is a patented inductive charging system for industrial electric vehicles and mobile robots. Our charging systems are designed for the latest generation of smart and autonomous robotic systems. Easy and independent to install, they provide the vehicles with all relevant data. Since the systems do not require plug-in or sliding contacts, they enable intermediate charging of the batteries. This so-called “in-process charging” not only saves time, but is also safer than charging via potentially dangerous open contacts. etaLINK charging systems are maintenance-free and designed for many years of continuous use, e.g. in logistics or production. Furthermore, the inductive charger works with any type of battery.

etaLINK 12000

Inductive charging with 12000 Watt

As a system provider of charging and storage technology, we are presenting our inductive fast charging system etaLINK 12000 for the first time on these pages. The solution enables the intermediate charging (“in-process charging”) of the lithium-ion batteries of automated guided vehicles (AGVs), industrial trucks and mobile robots. Charging processes can thus be flexibly integrated into intralogistical processes. The scalable energy solution is the world’s first inductive charging system with 12,000 watts of power and an efficiency of 93%. The result is fully automated charging processes and up to 30% increased vehicle availability.

etaHUB

Software for data monitoring of mobile robots

No energy, no productivity – this simply sums up the importance of a reliable energy supply for automated guided vehicles (AGVs). An energy system that is perfectly matched to the vehicle and the application enables efficient operation of the robots. To ensure that the systems can be used without malfunctions or interruptions in the long term, the charging infrastructure must be optimally planned, the battery capacity must be dimensioned and there must be an early response to system changes in field operation. Continuous data acquisition and its targeted processing are essential for this. With etaHUB, we as an energy solution provider offer for the first time a monitoring solution that makes all relevant live information usable without the customer having to become a system expert.

“Our omni-directional AGVs can approach the charging station from multiple directions and automatically start the charging process. This is a huge increase in flexibility when creating system designs for different projects.” – W. Bohlken, Head of R&D Mobile Robotics, KUKA Germany

ADVANTAGES OF INDUCTIVE CHARGING

With an efficiency of 93%, our innovative etaLINK technology opens new horizons in the field of wireless inductive charging. Based on the principle of magnetic induction, we have developed innovations for several core areas of the system. Modern algorithms and the integrated communication interface to the battery management system (BMS) guarantee both smooth and fast battery charging processes.

WIRELESS CHARGING MAKES CONTINUOUS OPERATION OF DRIVERLESS TRANSPORT SYSTEMS POSSIBLE

With our inductive battery charging systems, we enable the continuous operation of AGVs and AMRs. Our innovative “in-process charging” allows the vehicles to be supplied with energy efficiently and fully automatically – without contact and without the vehicles having to interrupt their transport for charging breaks.

What customers say about inductive charging

Lean & Clean Charging-Induktives Laden für Flurförderzeuge, autonome fahrerlose Transportsysteme (FTF / FTS) und mobile, kollaborative Roboter (Cobot)

K. Franke
Head of Hardware Development 

Magazino

“We were looking for a system provider that offered batteries, BMS and the chargers, and that they could be integrated in an easy and user-friendly way for our robots. We use the Wiferion system because it was incredibly compact for the power delivered and the batteries have the new ICE 62619 compliance for the industrial environment.”

Technical Manager
Norcan &  Sherpa Mobile Robotics

“We actually found that the technology allows up to 10,000 charging cycles. Before, we were only at 1,000 cycles with our extra batteries.
That gives us a lot of flexibility, and you always have enough energy on board to run a fully autonomous system.”

“In the medium term, the etaLINK system is wear-free and can help reduce energy costs thanks to its very good efficiency. In addition, our omnidirectional AGVs can approach the charging station from multiple directions and start the charging process independently. This also increases flexibility when creating system designs for different projects.”
