Compact conductor system VKS

Industrial automation is advancing inexorably. Almost everywhere there are now storage or conveyor systems that rely on self-acting as well as robot-assisted technologies and thus enable higher productivity in a smaller area. In intralogistics, shuttles and stacker cranes store and retrieve goods quickly. In the production sector, on the other hand, for example the automotive sector, automated skillet lines transport the heavy car bodies along the production lines.

In order to reliably control these mobile automated helpers, an uninterruptible power and signal connection is required. Since the applications are becoming smaller and smaller, there is usually little installation space available for them. This is why VAHLE has developed the VKS compact conductor system. Despite its ultra-flat form, the VKS can be used with up to six poles. This allows the system to transmit control currents as well as other signals in addition to the drive power.

Thanks to its stable and solid extruded housing and its high power range, the VKS is particularly versatile. The contact-protected system can be integrated in lateral, suspended and vertical systems with or without curves. In combination with the VAHLE MULTI CARRIER (VMT), the compact conductor system also allows the installation of a positioning system.

For many years, the low-maintenance VKS has served leading suppliers of automation technology as a standard solution, as it ensures smooth operation even in the case of heavy contamination or under extreme temperature conditions in deep-freeze warehouses.

Your Vision. Our Solution.

VMT - Optimized support structure for the VKS

The VAHLE Multi Carrier (VMT) is the optimum support structure when it comes to the fast and cost-effective assembly and modification of our conductor systems. In addition to accommodating the various conductor systems, positioning systems can of course also be integrated.

  • Suspension distance up to 3.5 m possible
  • Quick and easy assembly due to plug-in and clamping technology
  • Universal suspension for all common upright profiles
  • Mechanical protection of the conductor system
  • Integration of optical positioning systems

  • Minimal space requirements due to ultra-flat design
  • Simple, safe and fast installation (plug & play) even in curved tracks
  • Contact protection (IP 2X) and UL approval
  • High pole variance and power range for absolute flexibility
  • Universal for hanging, lateral and vertical arrangement
  • Also suitable for refrigerated and deep-freeze warehouses
  • Can be combined with the VAHLE MULTI CARRIER VMT
