Product description:

GigaPLUG is a contactless plug which supports the transmission of Profinet and other common Ethernet based protocols.


- Profinet

- EtherCAT

- 100Base Ethernet

- 1000Base Ethernet

- Powerlink


The technology is based on a capacitive contactless transmission, which is used for many years in a lot of rotating systems of Schleifring. The GigaPLUG instead transmit the data in a stationary system.


Due to the shock- and vibration resistance a reliable full-duplex transmission can be make sure even in environmentally unfriendly conditions (IP66).


The contactless transmission generates a mechanical wear-free system, in which you can achieve unlimited plug-in cycles of connector operations.
