Yazaki, Evatran Partner on Wireless Charging Tech.

June 03, 2011

WYTHEVILLE, VA – Evatran, the developer of the Plugless Power electric vehicle (EV) inductive recharging system, and Yazaki North America have signed a Joint Development Agreement to develop and market Plugless Power technology to automotive manufacturers as a factory or dealership option.

To charge with the Plugless Power system, the EV needs to be parked above the floor-mounted parking pad. The system uses induction technology to create wireless charge designed specifically for the high-power EV application. The system transfers up to 3.3KW of power at efficiencies above 90 percent, ensuring that vehicles recharge as quickly as with traditional plug-in methods.

Yazaki North America is a Tier 1 automotive supplier with headquarters in Canton, Mich., and is a subsidiary of Yazaki Corporation with headquarters in Tokyo, Japan. Yazaki supplies products to vehicle manufacturers worldwide with a product portfolio that includes an SAE J1772 compliant Charge Coupler and assembly along with electrical components for hybrid vehicles.
