Inductive power transfer systems for conveyors in open pit mining are valuable because they allow for efficient power transfer to the conveyor belt, increasing production and reducing operational costs. The system eliminates the need for costly and sometimes unreliable electrical wiring. It offers a high level of safety, as the power is transmitted through an air gap in the system, eliminating the risk of shock or electrocution.
The ENRX system uses a process called inductive charging. Electricity passes through wire coils in the road plates, generating a magnetic field. This field induces a voltage across coils in the vehicle plates, and the batteries are charged.
The unique patterned ENRX Electric Roadway technology works through magnetic inductive power transfer. Energy flows from the pre-assembled ground winding coils to a receiver pad under the vehicle through electromagnetic induction.
