A 1W system from Energous has been approved for free-space charging in Europe
The 1W WattUp PowerBridge transmitter complies with European technical requirements for radio equipment and follows the recent FCC approval in the US. This allows designers to use the WattUp system to provide wireless power pver several metres to asset tracking tags such as those from Wiliot in France, electronic shelf labels and industrial IoT sensors.
The technology was developed with Dialog Semiconductor, now part of Renesas Electronics.
“This approval for WattUp over-the-air charging at any distance in Europe enhances our ongoing partnership with Energous and our ability to bring OTA wireless power solutions to customers in Europe,” said Markus Schriebl, chief executive officer, TAGnology. “This opens up additional opportunities for Energous’ WattUp wireless power networks in Europe and allows us together to offer manufacturers in the region more approved WattUp-enabled wireless power options for a wide range of applications.”
“This major regulatory approval for Energous’ breakthrough technology opens many additional opportunities in Europe and around the world, including batteryless IoT devices and wearables,” said Sanjay Gupta, president of AirFuel Alliance. “AirFuel members continue to work closely with regulators to open up compliant pathways for wireless power to be transmitted over-the-air, benefiting manufacturers, consumers, and the environment alike.”
“Energous continues to offer the widest array of industry-leading wireless power transfer technologies in the market today,” said Cesar Johnston, acting CEO of Energous. “This latest regulatory approval is a testament of Energous’ leadership in the industry. We are excited to work with our partners in Europe as they develop new WattUp-enabled devices.”
