High-speed contactless power transfer for Cross Belt Sorters

Increases efficiency while reducing energy consumption and wear and tear

The crossbelt sorter is a fully automated carrier belt-based sortation system developed for sorting a wide range of products from cartons, envelops, boxes and bags. Packages are distributed over hundreds of different outputs. An average machine sorts 12,000 up to 80,000 items per hour.

Technology of choice
Contactless power transfer increases the mechanical efficiency of sorting systems while reducing energy consumption and wear and tear. The track of our contactless sorting systems are smaller than other systems, and speed can easily be modulated on demand. IPT inductive powered sorters are easy to expand, and system installation is simplified.

Strongly reducing wear and tear levels without compromising speed, capacity, and reliability?

Then IPT® Rail is the perfect power supply solution for your sorter system. IPT® Rail systems enable a continuous contactless supply of energy to the moving carriers of the sorting machines. It operates on the principle of inductive energy transfer and allows applications to achieve a higher process performance than alternative solutions.

When supplying power to carriers, a continuous inductive contactless track supply is required along the entire path of travel. IPT® Rail features a protruding primary track that is installed parallel to the sorter machine. This power supply is made for high-speed travelling over long-distance, emission-free and resistant to all temperature, humidity or dust-free controlled environments. Contactless technology also doesn’t add friction or movement-resistance, usually added by busbar and dynamo sorters implementation.

For more than 20 years, IPT offers reliable contactless power supply solutions for your sorter needs, including our optional iDAT solution for an inductive communication position system that generates no radio waves.
