American Technology Components Forms Partnership with NuCurrent
September 13, 2021
Electronics manufacturer and wireless power provider to bring industry’s first Qi-certified, extended range chargers to RV and boating markets
ELKHART AND CHICAGO (September 14, 2021) - American Technology Components (ATC) and NuCurrent announced today a partnership which will combine NuCurrent’s superior wireless charging solutions and ATC’s expertise and quality in manufacturing electronic subsystems. The partnership signals transformative innovation of new product categories including RV, marine and boating.
“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.”
The new product line includes two EPP 15W Qi Extended Range Wireless Chargers. The wireless chargers leverage NuCurrent’s MP-A17 transmitter design specification and their intellectual property for a production product that triples both the charge height and volume (compared to previous Qi standards) to provide a faster, more reliable charging experience for end-users.
ATC’s charging solutions can be mounted under 9mm of non-metallic surfaces, opening up a host of sleek, durable and never-before-seen product integrations, including dashboards, bedside tables and kitchen countertops.
“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, EVP of Sales and Marketing at NuCurrent. “The potential for innovation in the RV, marine and boating space is particularly exciting - and just plain fun.”
Historically, wireless charging has been an after-market feature added by customers themselves. Today, integrated wireless chargers manufactured by leading competitors are only able to charge with up to 3mm to 5mm of separation distance, leading to high manufacturing costs, increased likelihood of water and debris ingress, and more. ATC’s wireless chargers are superior to the competition, as shown in the chart below.
