e-rover: Automatisches Ankoppeln von e-ketten® für die Übertragung von Daten und Energie


igus® has further enhanced its e-rover, a system that enables automatic coupling and decoupling to/from the energy chain system®. Energy and data can therefore be securely supplied by cable – including via FOC cables at Gigabit speed. The coupling process only takes about a minute and there are no restrictions on the RTG’s speed.

Different fillings and travels

Flexible choice of power, data and control cables, including fibre optic cables for data transfer

Saves operating costs of RTGs

Protects the environment


30% less weight and install space

Travel 800 m and more

Typical applications:Port cranes
