American Technology Components (ATC) and NuCurrent will combine NuCurrent’s wireless charging products with ATC’s experience in manufacturing electronic subsystems. The companies said their combination will transform RV product categories.
“ATC strives to be responsive to the advancement of technology, especially when we see how beneficial it can be for our customers,” said Ross Nusbaum, director of sales and marketing at ATC. “Because of the industry-leading charging speeds and range, this is going to transform how RV and boat manufacturers deploy wireless charging.”
Historically, wireless charging has been an aftermarket feature. Today, integrated wireless chargers only can charge with up to 3mm to 5mm of separation distance. ATC’s charging solutions can be mounted under 9mm of non-metallic surfaces. The result will enable product integrations into dashboards, bedside tables and kitchen countertops.
The companies’ new product line includes two EPP 15W Qi Extended Range Wireless Chargers. The wireless chargers use NuCurrent’s MP-A17 transmitter design specification and technology to triple the charge height and volume (compared with previous Qi standards).
“The adoption of wireless power is growing at an exponential rate, and NuCurrent is proud to integrate our wireless power technologies into ATC’s new line of products,” said Tim Tumilty, executive vice president of sales and marketing at NuCurrent. “The potential for innovation in the RV, marine and boating space is particularly exciting and just plain fun.”
