NearFi couplers for contactless power and data transmission

NearFi couplers for contactless power and data transmission

NearFi is the new contactless real-time transmission technology from Phoenix Contact. Thanks to protocol-independent Ethernet communication, it offers flexible application options for any Ethernet protocol. With NearFi couplers, power (24 V, 2 A) and real-time Ethernet data (100 Mbps, full duplex) can be transmitted across an air gap of a few centimetres. This allows you to use this technology to replace wear-prone connections and slip rings in industrial applications, while minimising costly outages.
