WiBotic sees European approval for wireless charging systems
WiBotic has received European approval for its wireless charging systems for drones and industrial robots

The two systems to receive the CE Mark are the TR-301 transmitter with 300W OC-301 onboard charger and the TR-301 transmitter with 250W OC-251 onboard charger.

WiBotic’s systems also meet the IEC directives for the EU and Canada’s CSA Group standards organization as well as the FCC in the US. Key parameters that were tested across all agencies include radiated emissions, harmonic emissions, AC conducted emissions, RF immunity, RF exposure, and overall product safety. The onboard chargers can communicate to the drone or robot using CANbus.

“CE Marks represent a major product milestone for us at WiBotic,” said Ben Waters, CEO. “Completing the rigorous testing requirements takes a great deal of time and effort, yet it’s an incredibly important process, as it further validates that our systems meet the highest possible standards for safety and reliability.”

“We also recently completed FCC approval in the US, so our systems are compliant with reputable regulatory agencies within many countries around the world,” said Waters. “This, in turn, opens several exciting partnership and deployment opportunities for us across Europe, Canada, and beyond. Requirements for robot safety standards and certifications have also evolved significantly over the past five years. We hope that these certifications help our partners and the entire robotics industry scale up quickly to avoid the complex and costly bottlenecks of pursuing certifications on their own.”

The TR-301 is WiBotic’s high power transmitter, with the ability to transmit up to 300W into a wide range of applications. Most often used for larger drones, mobile robots and marine vehicles, the TR-301 can be used in the WiBotic PowerPad (or other landing pads), or as a wall station for mobile robot charging.

The TR-301’s metal enclosure includes flanges for easy wall mounting, an LCD display for system messages, and LED indicator lights to show system status at all times. A standard transmitter antenna attaches via a short coaxial cable for flexible mounting options, and a built-in Ethernet port
