Compact conductor system VKS10

Track-guided storage solutions are on the rise. They are extremely space-saving and promise a high turnover rate. Regardless of whether small parts or high-bay warehouses are involved, operation is usually fully automated. Reliable power and signal transmission is required so that the load-carrying vehicles can be controlled quickly and precisely.

The VKS10 compact conductor system was specially developed for stacker cranes and has been a market standard for leading suppliers for many years. The multifunctional complete solution enables the transmission of drive power, control currents and other signals.

Thanks to up to 10-pole design and a wide power range, the contact-protected system is suitable for aisle, lift mast and multi-applications. The universal VTP support profile allows large suspension distances and easy implementation of different positioning systems. Complex and expensive auxiliary constructions are thus a thing of the past.

The VKS10 is compatible with the Smart Collector, the world's first current collector for intelligent system inspection from VAHLE. The system helps to detect problems and faults at an early stage and to better plan maintenance cycles.
