Rosenberger has developed the RoProxCon, a contactless transmission / connection solution that uses radio transceivers in the mmWave frequency range to provide electronic data transmission. The RoProxCon solution from Rosenberger is an innovative connection system, that bridges construction-related air gaps with high interference immunity. This system offers advantages in applications where there are high requirements for low maintenance and freedom from wear. With RoProxCon, existing applications can be improved while also allowing new solutions to be created for previously unrealizable scenarios.
Due to increasing automation, more and more electromechanical systems used in industrial plants are being connected to one another. Cables and plug contacts are often under considerable stress, causing cables to deteriorate or even break, and overused plug contacts to fail, resulting in machine downtime. The advantage of contactless transmission is that inflexible electromechanical couplings are no longer required while the radio technology offers a high degree of additional flexibility. For example, at times when systems need to be changed.
With RoProxCon, transmission in full duplex mode of up to 6 Gbps is possible. In addition, this solution allows data to be transmitted regardless of the protocol used. This means RoProxCon is transparent in the transmission channel. An additional adaptation to a further transmission standard is therefore not necessary. Furthermore, real-time capability is guaranteed. Use in time-critical applications, e.g., in automation technology is therefore possible without restriction.
Key Features of the RoProxCon connection system:
- Full duplex data transmission in real time
