Created by the Wireless power consortium (WPC) in 2008, the Qi standard (pronounced “Tchi”) is the global standard for wireless charging.
The Qi standard guarantees compatibility between certified devices. A Qi-certified charger will be compatible with the mobile devices of today and tomorrow.
A product certified to the Qi standard integrates several safety protocols including foreign object detection (FOD), management of electrical flows, etc… in order to avoid the risks of overvoltage, high tension or short-circuit.
The Wireless Power Consortium is working to create a wireless world in order to spread the use of this technology on a daily basis.
The WPC has set up a standard called Medium-Power to adapt wireless charging technology to devices such as laptops, power tools such as drills, self-contained hoovers and electric bikes.
The Ki Cordless Kitchen standard opens up the use of wireless charging technology in the kitchen. This new standard will enable the various kitchen appliances to be powered wirelessly.
This technology allows the exchange of information between stations and devices charging. With Easy Clip IoT, IPAN IPAN now offers connected charging stations to enable brands (HoReCa) to improve interaction with their customers.
