Powercast is the pioneer and leader of long-range, power-over-distance wireless charging technology using broadcasted RF energy (radio waves) converted into DC power. Since 2003, the company has provided solutions combining its FCC-approved transmitters and receiver chips to enable automatic, over-the-air charging of multiple devices – no charging mats or direct line of sight needed.
Wireless Power / Charging
Powercast’s embedded wireless power technology provides long-range, true wireless charging without wires or charging mats to enable completely untethered devices. FCC-approved RF transmitters pair with high-efficiency receiver chips to enable power-over-distance recharging of multiple devices.
A transmitter sends RF energy over the air to a receiver chip embedded in a device, which converts it to DC to recharge its batteries or directly power the device. This remote charging technology behaves like Wi-Fi where enabled devices automatically charge when within range of a power transmitter. Smart, configurable and controllable, it can automatically activate when devices need charging and turn off when they’re done, or can deliver power continuously or on a scheduled basis.

Whether you are a company that has been around for 100 years or a new company, navigating the Internet of Things is not an ‘if’ but a ‘how’. Are you looking to embed capabilities in previously unconnected products or enable new ideas? Powercast can help bring you power where you most need it – to your product.
