The Next Step for EV
Evatran / Plugless Power: Residential Wireless Charging System
Hands free Charging by Plugless Power - Designed by Human Array
Over the last couple of years we have grown attached to the Plugless Power wireless charging concept as we worked closely with the Plugless Power/Evatran team to implement market appropriate design concepts.
The Plugless Level 2 EV Charging System offers a more convenient and reliable way to charge your EV. Simply pull into an equipped parking space and let the Plugless L2 System do the rest –wirelessly – no cords to untangle and no plugging in required. It’s a completely hands-free technology. As you pull into your parking space, the wall-mounted Control Panel guides you over the Parking Pad. Once aligned, your EV begins charging automatically!
"Requiring no cord and plug, Plugless Power™ is the world’s first “hands-free” proximity charging system for electric vehicles. Based on inductive power transfer used in electrical transformers for over 100 years, Plugless Power offers outfitted vehicles the ability to pull into a parking space (or garage) and refuel without any driver interaction. The proximity charging system guards against forgetting to recharge, tripping hazards, and inclement weather while also redefining electric vehicle recharging as just another automatic process that can easily be acclimated into a wireless, self-cleaning, user-free life."
As big fans of Plugless Power and Google, we are confident this clean technology will make a huge splash in the EV market and can't wait to have one at our studio. This has turned out to be one of our favorite recent projects and definitely one of the upcoming technologies we see changing the face of Green Tech. Good luck Plugless Power!
HOW DOES PLUGLESS L2 WORK?
Inductive power transfer uses magnetic fields to transfer energy from a transmitting coil in the Parking Pad to a receiving coil in the Vehicle Adapter, which converts this energy into electrical current to charge your EV. Once the system is installed and paired to your vehicle, you simply pull into your garage or parking space and the system automatically begins recharging your EV
The future of EV is here, and wired charging is history. Meet the Plugless Level 2 EV Charging System. Using inductive power transfer technology, Plugless L2 efficiently and safely charges your EV. It works just as fast as level 2 plug-in stations without the hassle of cables. And since Plugless starts charging automatically whenever you park over the system — even for a few minutes — your EV gets more frequent charges, which helps extend the life of your battery.
