Mouser stocks Molex’s wireless charging coils
Compliant with both Qi and AirFuel standards, the PowerLife wireless charging coils from Molex are thin and are claimed to have the highest power transfer efficiency (Q factor) of any wireless charging solution available today.
The integrated wireless power coils with NuCurrent technology are now available from distributor, Mouser Electronics.
The coils support low, high, and proprietary frequencies, including Qi and AirFuel (PMA). Traditional wire-wound coils require wider electrical tolerances and can be bulky or difficult to integrate, especially into products that require thin designs or are intended for use in harsh environments, says the company. The coils can withstand vibration, heat and humidity, and accommodate single or multiple frequencies in one assembly to reduce component count. The coils transmit power through air, wood, or any non-metallic surface.
They provide an extremely tight electrical tolerance and low rate of field failures, says the company. The high Q-factor results in lower heat generation and faster charging in a range of applications, including mobile phones, tablets, gaming systems, wearables and other consumer electronics, medical devices, furniture, and in-vehicle transmitters.
