About Wireless Charging
Inductive charging has been around for decades and uses induction coils to create an alternating electromagnetic field, transferring energy from a transmitter unit to a receiver unit. The receiver unit then converts the energy into power that can charge a battery. Powermat’s wireless power platforms and IP enable companies worldwide to incorporate advanced wireless power into their products and customize solutions for unique use cases. The company’s wireless power technology can already be found in over 800 million smartphones, 40 million embedded accessories & 8 million cars and has been adopted by global market leaders such as Samsung, General Motors, Flex, Harman International, Pivotal Commware, and more.

Wireless Charging Systems FAQs
Is Wireless Charging Safe?
Yes. The electromagnetic field created by a wireless charger issignificantly low. Many are concerned about the safety of electromagnetic fields emitted by wireless charging systems. This safety topic has been studied since the 1950’s and exposure standards and guidelines have been developed by independent scientific organizations (such as ICNIRP) assuring a substantial safety margin.
Powermat develops wireless charging systems according to the harshest exposure standards.
What are the Safety Advantages of a Sealed Wireless Charging System?
Wireless charging has the advantage of being a sealed system, there are no exposed electrical connectors or ports. This creates a safe product, protecting users from hazardous incidents and not being sensitive to water or other liquids.
What are the Benefits of Wireless Charging
The lack of cables creates a clutter-free environment and enables products and devices to operate wirelessly without being tethered to the wall. It also prevents repeatedly connecting a device to it’s wired charger, avoiding wear & tear of the device’s charging port, sealing the device completely, and enabling full autonomy for unmanned systems.
