Molex has announced the launch of PowerLife™ standard and custom wireless power coils with NuCurrent® technology for plug-free device charging. The integrated wireless power coils feature an industry-leading thin design and the highest power transfer efficiency (Q-factor) of any wireless charging solution on the market today.
Molex PowerLife wireless power coils with NuCurrent technology support low, high and proprietary frequencies, in standard and custom sizes. A high Q-factor results in lower heat generation and faster charging in a range of applications, including mobile phones, tablets, gaming systems, wearables and other consumer electronics, medical devices, furniture and in-vehicle transmitters.
“A logical next-step in connectivity, wireless power requires the right technologies to achieve optimal device charging,” said Steve Zeilinger, product manager, Molex. “Compact PowerLife wireless power coils provide an extremely tight electrical tolerance and low rate of field failures for a better product design, performance and end-user experience.”
Traditional wire-wound coils require wider electrical tolerances and can be bulky or difficult to integrate, especially into products that require thin designs or are intended for use in harsh environments. High-efficiency PowerLife wireless power coils with NuCurrent technology withstand vibration, heat and humidity, and excel in transmitting power through air, wood, or any non-metallic surface.
Available in virtually any size, PowerLife coils accommodate single or multiple frequencies in one assembly for reduced component count. Molex manufacturing resources support different volume requirements. Off-the-shelf receivers with single and multiple frequencies can be provided for engineering evaluation and fast-to-market projects.
“Molex PowerLife wireless power coils blend best-in-class manufacturing expertise and wireless charging technology to optimize design flexibility for OEMs meeting rising demand for popular wireless mobile devices and other innovative wireless charging applications,” adds Riley.
