Solace Power logoSolace Power, a developer of resonant capacitive coupling wireless power transfer technology, has announced the launch of Equus35, the first in a family of complete wireless charging solutions delivering 35 watts of received power across gaps of more than 100mm.

Solace’s Resonant Capacitive Coupling technology represents a series of breakthroughs enabling single- and multi-device power transfer without heating surrounding metal. The first release in this new series is designed to excel in harsh, low variability environments. This next generation technology delivers scalable power for use in applications such as small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) and other robotics applications as well as traditional wireless power applications.

“Solace’s Equus extends wireless power beyond convenience for consumer electronics,” said Michael Gotlieb, Chief Executive Officer of Solace Power. “This workhorse technology unlocks wireless power as a solution to real-world challenges for designers who are re-architecting power environments.”

The solution delivers a collection of unparalleled wireless charging features including:

  • 35W of usable power through Solace’s proprietary transmitter and receiver
  • Guaranteed power across gaps of more than 100mm and end-to-end efficiency exceeding 70%
  • Ultrathin, lightweight and adaptable electrode configurations
  • Built-in foreign object detection
  • Designed and tested to meet CISPR and FCC approval

“This commercial release opens years of Solace Power research and successful integration into some of the world’s most demanding power-transfer environments,” added Gotlieb. “We are proud to offer this differentiated solution to a broader audience and move the market toward Wireless Power 2.0.”
