The concept of wireless power transfer (WPT) was approached by Nikola Tesla back in the 1890s but was not made possible due to limitations in technology. Only over the last decade have advancements in technology enabled Lectrifi to made progress towards overcoming a series century old obstacles.
Since Tesla's attempts to transfer power through the air, science has focused on a number of theories to facilitate the eventual commercialization of WPT. Electromagnetic theory has received much attention and was initially thought of as the most likely candidate able to commercialize WPT.
Whilst the efficient transfer of power is possible with the electromagnetic approach, stabilizing a connection from the power source to the application is a costly process. Research into the development of electromagnetic WPT has also raised a number of safety concerns.
Resonant Wireless Power
Lectrifi research and product developed is focused on High Resonant Wireless Power Transfer (HR-WPT). HR-WPT has emerged as the safest and most efficient way of transmitting power through the air.
With the advancement in technology, HR-WPT has the potential to transit power across distances that will accommodate the usage requirements of the average sized home and business office premises.
Unlike other WPT theories, whose power source is contained in a large output unit, HR-WPT power sources are more easily contained in smaller units without sacrificing of power output. This compelling advancement in the efficiency of HR-WPT increases the commercial attraction of a power transmission device as the need for an unsightly, large component is replaced by a much smaller and discreet unit.
