Contactless Power Supply suitable for climatic- & cleanroom-controlled environment
Automated Storage and Retrieval Systems – also referred to as ASRS systems – are used in manufacturing and distribution facilities. They replace large areas of shelving to save floor space, improve safety and increase productivity.
The storage and handling of goods in a climatic- or cleanroom-controlled environment can be quite challenging. Within the manufacturing and distribution process, some products require stringent temperature control and humidity or dust-free environments. When not handled properly, these goods have to be discarded and replaced, costing significant time and money.
Avoid pollution caused by energy transfer in climate, humidity or dust-free environments areas?
Then IPT® Rail and Floor is the perfect contactless power supply system for you. It operates on the principle of inductive energy transfer. When supplying power to rail-mounted vehicles, a continuous inductive contactless supply is required along the entire path of travel. IPT® Rail and Floor feature a protruding primary track that is installed parallel to the rail. The cable’s elevated installation to guide vehicles allows E-shape or Flat shape pickups attached to the driven vehicle and envelope both track cables from several sides. This power supply is made for high-speed travelling over long-distance, emission-free and resistant to harsh climatic room or cleanroom-controlled environments. It is particularly fit for curved trajectories where busbars don’t perform well and require high replacement costs (wear and tear of copper shoes/brushes).
IPT offers reliable power supply solutions for your AS/RS needs, including our optional iDAT solution for an inductive communication position system that generates no radio waves.

Types of Automated Storage and Retrieval System Technologies
The ASRS technologies on the market handle different volumes, types and speeds of non-palletized inventory at variable speeds to accommodate varying throughput demands.
A series of vehicles travelling bi-directionally in a vertical loop around a track, vertical carousels deliver stored items safely and quickly to an ergonomically located work counter at the operator’s control.
Highly dense storage bins mounted on a track rotates horizontally to deliver product storage locations for quick order fulfilment.
These enclosed automated storage and retrieval systems consist of two trays columns with an inserter or extractor in the centre delivering trays of stored items to a location.
With a single, crane-mounted load handling device applied to each extremely dense storage path, mini-loads handle items in cases, totes or trays.
Handling cases, totes or trays, this type of goods-to-person automated storage system can deliver higher throughput based on the number of separately moving robotic shuttles recruited into the system.
This solution stores inventory on compact storage shelving transported from storage to a fleet of autonomous, mobile robots.
High-density storage is a concept based on concentrating multiple charge units in as little space as possible to reduce space and costs significantly.
