Civilization began with agriculture. When our nomadic ancestors began to settle and grow their own food, human society was forever changed. Communities, no matter how sophisticated, cannot ignore the importance of agriculture, since to be far from dependable sources of food is to risk malnutrition and starvation. The global and interdependent nature of human society makes us fundamentally dependent on agriculture. In modern times, increasing amounts of food are needed to sustain our increasing population. Increased production must come from new technologies for the growing, transportation, and storage of food. Farm machinery and components used for large and small scale irrigation, seeding and cultivation, fertilization, harvesting, and food storage must be robust, dependable, and designed to work largely outdoors. Electrical components must withstand moisture, corrosive chemicals, and variable weather conditions. Center pivot irrigation requires the transfer of power and control signals from the stationary source to the rotating mechanism. Other types of rotating electrical machines perform jobs such as grain stirring and drying, moving grain in and out of storage, and enhancing dairy production through the use of rotary milking carousels. Mobile greenhouse irrigation systems require cable and hose management.
For many decades, Conductix-Wampfler has provided special electrical components for agricultural machines. We work with farm machinery OEMs to arrive at the ideal solution. Our products have stood the test of time in fields, orchards, green houses, and storage facilities all over the world. We offer:
Slip Ring Assemblies – for the reliable transfer of energy and data to center pivot irrigation system, to operate grain storage devices that stir, dry, and sweep stored grains, sugar, and other bulk food materials or to provide power and control to rotating milking carousels, in stainless steel enclosures.
Energy Guiding Chains – to manage cables and hoses used in greenhouse irrigation systems.
Motor-Driven Hose Reels – to provide water in longitudinal irrigation systems.

Additional information [s]
Generally the basic function of IPT-Floor systems is the same as that of other Inductive Power Transfer systems. But there are some additional or specific aspects to consider.
The cable loop must be installed in a way that complete coverage of the supply of vehicles along the entire travelling path is given. This way installed the cable routing also defines the travelling path of vehicles. With iDAT it is possible to detect the magnetic field around the cabling and to supply a guidance signal to the vehicle control and to control so the movement of the vehicle. Unwanted and expensive guidance slots become obsolete this way. Various travelling paths can be defined. Switches, crossings, etc. are no problem. The pickup just needs to be placed so that it is exposed to the magnetic field in a sufficient way.
