Analogic’s PowerLink non-contact power transfer systems for CT and other modalities employ rotating gantries, enable advanced volumetric scanning technology. PowerLink transfers power from the stationary gantry to the rotating disc without brush contacts. This design reportedly reduces downtime and maintenance costs for CT systems and opens up space on the gantry for hybrid/multi-modality capabilities.
