June 4, 2020 – Melbourne, Australia – Lumen Freedom, a world leading manufacturer of Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging (WEVC) systems, today announced that they have received certification from UL, a leading global safety science company, to UL 2750 – the Outline Of Investigation For Wireless Power Transfer Equipment For Electric Vehicles.
Lumen Freedom will be the first organization to gain UL 2750 certification for a WEVC system, which marks a significant milestone for both organizations. Lumen Freedom & UL engineers have been collaborating, globally, on the safety and performance of the wireless charging equipment, which includes the power source, the ground pad and the vehicle assembly.
Lumen Freedom’s WEVC systems use resonant magnetic induction technology, which facilitates power transfer over an air gap of up to 300mm. The technology is >90% efficient, providing plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle drivers with a clean, clutter free and seamless alternative to conductive charging systems. WEVC is also the natural charging solution for autonomous vehicles because no human intervention is required for charging to start.
“For Lumen Freedom to have reached this milestone, and to share it with an organization with the credentials and focus on safety as UL, is a superb achievement”, describes Rod Wilson, General Manager, Lumen Freedom.
“With EV sales expected to exceed gas powered vehicle sales by 2030, the demand for revolutionary technologies that can be used to recharge electric vehicle batteries, such as wireless power transfer systems, will continue to grow,” said Joseph Bablo, principal engineer manager for Energy Systems and e-Mobility at UL. “For UL, safety is the foundational element of any successful and sustainable technological deployment and must continue to be actively addressed to support viable technological advancements.”
