- The LIGHTS RX-1W receiver is perfect for IoT applications and smart devices.
The Wi-Charge system meets all the regulatory requirements for global introduction into the market in most regions, including the U.S., Europe, China, South Korea and Japan. Manufacturers that embed Wi-Charge modules can leverage Wi-Charge’s safety certification and execute a simple and streamlined regulatory approval process without having to undergo separate laser certification for their products.
For over 120 years, UL has tested, inspected, certified, and verified technologies to make the world safer. UL tested Wi-Charge’s system in a variety of configurations and ranges, and the certification confirms the technology’s safety, range and power delivery. With this certification, Wi-Charge’s technology is also compliant with the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
The UL certification cements Wi-Charge’s position as the market leader in long-range wireless power, providing both a safe and powerful way to charge devices without cords, charging pads or batteries. Wi-Charge uses infrared light to safely deliver meaningful power to mobile, smart and IoT devices.
