ElectReon the provider of in-road electric vehicle charging technology for shared, commercial and passenger vehicles, has obtained ECE R10 certification—the United Nations and European Economic Community’s Electromagnetic Compatibility approval—for the company’s deployments across the world. ElectReon is now able to integrate its vehicle-side technology with any electric road vehicle and is considered completely safe for vehicles, drivers, passengers, and other road users.
The ECE R10 approval pertains to ElectReon’s proprietary, vehicle-side hardware technology which acts as a power receiver unit during active wireless charging – this unit receives energy from the coils under the road that then powers the onboard energy storage device, and the Management Unit – which controls the entire system charging and system management capabilities.
This is also a step for the company in becoming ready to operate commercially at a global scale as receiving this standard will allow automakers to integrate the wireless charging components developed by the company into existing and vehicles manufactured in the future. This means that car manufacturers and the company will be able to integrate ElectReon technology both in vehicles that are in production phase and in vehicles that have already been marketed to consumers. Thereby enabling the company for platform diversification and the integration of its technology in additional vehicles ready for wireless charging.
The wireless charging technology allows EVs to securely charge while in motion on the road or while parked. ElectReon’s wireless charging capabilities solve EV owner and operator issues such as range anxiety and convenient accessibility to charging infrastructure.
