Alabama Patent of the Month – November 2022
There are some things in life that serve to offer an improvement to our quality of life. Wireless charging is one of those things that improves our life with a small luxury. The convenience of wireless charging is being quickly matched by the growing technology. Amphenol Tecvox, LLC is playing a role in this technological advancement.
The company has designed a wireless charging system for use in vehicles, bringing convenience on the go. This type of design ensures there is less chance of a driver distractedly trying to plug their device in to charge. While this convenience and safety are fantastic features, Amphenol Tecvox goes further by improving the charging efficiency.
Their design enables reduced power options and charge status monitoring to support better battery management. It also incorporates vents and a fan within the housing component. The fan communicates with the battery charger, tracking if the battery overheats and preventatively cooling the apparatus. The company has designed the wireless charger to be either an add-on or built into the dashboard of a vehicle. If the latter, the cooling system can interlink with the vehicle’s existing A/C system.
Amphenol Tecvox is a global leader in the design and development of automotive connectivity systems. Combining their years of experience with creativity and determination, the team repeatedly takes concepts from drawing board to reality. With a diverse line of products, the company’s innovations are in production vehicles worldwide, bringing convenience, safety, and luxury to our day-to-day lives.
