Can we connect 2 BIC inductive couplers in series?

Inductive coupler connecting in series

  • Two Balluff Inductive Coupler BIC systems can be connected in series.
  • But this cuts the power in half from 500 mA to 250 mA.
  • The maximum cable length between the individual components must be ≤ 20 m.
  • Angular offset can no longer be guaranteed and the maximum air gap = 5mm.
  • Therefore, the systems should be positioned accurately.
