In this paper a new topology for contactless energy transfer is proposed and tested that can transfer energy to a moving actuator using inductive coupling. The proposed topology provides long-stroke contactless energy transfer capability in a plane and a short-stroke movement of a few millimeters perpendicular to the plane. In addition, it is tolerant to small rotations. The experimental setup consists of a platform with one secondary coil, which is attached to a linear actuator and a 3-phase brushless electromotor. Underneath the platform is an array of primary coils, which are each connected to a half-bridge square wave power supply. The energy transfer to the electromotor is measured while the platform is moved over the array of primary coils by the linear actuator. The secondary coil moves with a stroke of 18 cm at speeds over 1 m/s, while up to 33 W power is transferred with 90% efficiency
