Company Powerco, the second largest distributor of gas and electricity in New Zealand, has provided startup Emrod opportunities to test innovative means of transmitting energy without wires. Currently there is only a prototype of such a transmitter and developers will require about six months of work in the laboratory before they proceed to field experiments. Probably by the time Emrod agree to explain the principle of operation of your device – no details not open.
So what Emrod managed to attract the attention of Powerco? Prospects – in particular, the developers of the system claim that it has no fundamental limitations on the volume of transmitted energy. Distance and is limited only by line of sight range – it is only necessary to position transmitting and receiving antennas facing each other and can work.
Technology uses to transmit microwave radiation, the system operates in a wide frequency range, consistent with the New Zealand authorities. The antenna radiation is not ionizing, it does not take harm to the environment and does not interfere. But, for greater security, each session is accompanied by the work of the signal laser beam of low power that determines the interference on the transmission line and automatically terminate its work.
The main scope of its development in Emrod called the area of green energy, as is often the generating facilities are located far away from the direct consumer. Wireless energy transmission will help to expedite and cheapen the process of delivery to customers. It is possible that this technology will make a revolution, and humanity refuses to create bulky batteries, electricity in favor of lightweight wireless transmitters.
