Wuerth Elektronik expands its Wireless Power Coil program with three transmitter coils and one receiver coil.
The new round transmitter coils 760 308 100 110 (A10) and 760 308 100 111 (A11) comply with the Qi standard of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC).
The ferrite pot core shape has major advantages, including, tightly bundling the magnetic field, increasing the possible coil distance and reducing outward radiation. The round shape also significantly reduces the mounting space required.
For small receiver coils, smaller transmitter coils are also necessary, as the area ratio between transmitter and receiver coil significantly affects the efficiency of energy transmission.
In order to offer a transmitter solution for the market of small receivers (sensors, wearables, hearing aids, etc.), 760 308 101 103 was developed. This compact transmitter coil transfers up to 5W and it also complies with the WPC Qi standard. With a diameter of 30mm, its area is only around a third the size of coil 760 308 100 111, for example.
Today there are two inductive wireless power standards: the Qi standard of the WPC and the PMA standard of the Power Matters Alliance. Wuerth Elektronik offers a dual standard receiver coil – 760 308 102 210 – for this purpose. The advantage of this high quality coil with litz wire and ferrite fortification in the center is devices which use this solution can be charged on charging stations of both standards.
