Duracell Powermat verleiht drahtlosem Strom beispiellose Intelligenz und Kraft

- Mit der Fusion der drahtlosen Daten- mit der drahtlosen Stromübertragung gelingt eine erheblich intelligentere und leistungsstärkere Technologie

BARCELONA, Spanien, 25. Februar 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile World Congress – Mit zwei Upgrades ist die Technologie der drahtlosen Stromübertragung heute in beispielloser Weise intelligenter und leistungsstärker geworden.

Das drahtlose Daten-„Maschennetz" versorgt die drahtlose Stromübertragung mit Intelligenz    
Infolge seines Versprechens, die drahtlose Stromübertragung zu einer intelligenten Technologie zu machen, präsentiert Duracell Powermat jetzt drahtlose Übertragungsoberflächen, die als „Maschennetz" funktionieren, so dass drahtlose Ladestationen in aller Welt zentral überwacht und gemanagt werden können.  

Diese neue Netztopographie ist ideal für den Einsatz an öffentlichen Standorten wie Cafés, Flughäfen und Stadien, so dass der Standort jede drahtlose Ladestation über ein zentralisiertes, in der Cloud gehostetes System überwachen, nachrüsten und strategisch verwalten kann. „Letztendlich kann damit jeder Standort Updates und Instruktionen in Echtzeit an jede Ladestation senden und auch empfangen", sagte Daniel Schreiber, Präsident von Powermat Technologies, dem Hersteller der Technologie für drahtlose Stromübertragung, die die Basis für alle Duracell Powermat-Produkte bildet. „Dies verwandelt die drahtlose Stromübertragung in öffentlichen Bereichen mit ihren unzusammenhängenden, einzelnen Oberflächen in ein intelligentes globales Netz." 

Diese Entwicklung von einem analogen Verbraucherprodukt zu einer digitalen Unternehmensplattform eröffnet neue Szenarien für die Nutzung und neue Geschäftsmodelle, wie etwa:

  • Apps, die an jedem Standort der Welt die nächste verfügbare drahtlose Ladestation finden
  • Standorte können kontrollieren, wer ihre drahtlose Stromübertragung für wie lange und zu welchen Bedingungen nutzen kann 
  • Unternehmen mit Tausenden von Standorten und Abertausenden von drahtlosen Ladestationen können Nutzungsmuster überwachen, den Zustand ihres drahtlosen Stromnetzes evaluieren  und per Fernwartung Support und Upgrades liefern

„Für Unternehmen, die die drahtlose Stromübertragung in großem Umfang einsetzen möchten, ist die Kombination aus drahtloser Stromübertragung und modernen Kommunikationsprotokollen und Cloud-Computing entscheidend. Und das ist, was unser System zu bieten hat", sagte Ron Rabinowitz, CEO von Duracell Powermat.  

Die Fähigkeit, die Stromversorgung je nach Leistungsbedarf der Geräte zu regulieren, verleiht der drahtlosen Stromübertragung beispiellose Kraft 
Die zweite Funktionalität, die am Stand von Duracell Powermat beim Mobile World Congress 2013 präsentiert wird, ist die „Kraft" der drahtlosen Stromversorgung: Drahtlose Ladestationen, die sich so regulieren, dass sie Smartphones, Tablets und sogar Ultrabooks mit Strom versorgen können. Die neuen drahtlosen Ladestationen liefern zwischen 5 und 50 Watt und verwenden denselben Formfaktor wie die vielen tausend Ladestationen, die in öffentlichen Bereichen bereits in Betrieb sind. Damit wird eine universelle Kompatibilität gewährleistet, und das Laden von Geräten mit unterschiedlicher Leistung erreicht einen Wirkungsgrad von bis zu 93 %. 

„Wenn man Hunderte von Ladestationen einrichten möchte, will man auch sicher sein, dass sie zukunftsfähig sind", sagte Greg Economou, Vorstand Vertrieb und Lösungen, Madison Square Garden.  „Unsere Entscheidung für den Einsatz der Powermat-Technologie im umgestalteten Madison Square Garden in so großem Umfang ist direkt darauf zurückzuführen, dass die Technologie auf unsere Bedürfnisse und, was noch wichtiger ist, auf die Bedürfnisse unserer Fans eingestellt werden kann. Wir kennen keine anderen Angebote, die dies auch nur annähernd leisten."

Durch die Kombination aus Kraft und Intelligenz sind die Duracell Powermat-Ladestationen in einzigartiger Weise für den Bedarf an Skalierbarkeit in öffentlichen Bereichen ausgerüstet. Tatsächlich wird in fast 100 % der drahtlosen Stromversorgung in öffentlichen Bereichen in den USA die Powermat-Technologie bereits eingesetzt. Dazu gehören der Madison Square Garden, einige ausgewählte Regis-Salons, Starbucks Cafés, Delta Sky Clubs und Westfield-Einkaufszentren sowie der 40/40 Club von Jay-Z.

Most of today’s hardware manufacturers are building servers with at least one SATA Port, but not every systems engineer utilizes them. This is considered a loss in the game of maximizing potential storage space in a fixed unit. The SATADOM Series was created by Innodisk as a high-performance, small form factor boot drive with low power consumption to be plugged into the unused SATA port on your server board as an alternative to hard drive or USB boot-up. Built for 1U systems, this powerful device is smaller than a one dollar coin, and frees up otherwise dead space on your motherboard. To meet the requirements of tomorrow’s cloud hardware, Innodisk invested internal R&D resources to develop our SATA III series of products. The SATA III SATADOM boasts 500/180MBs R/W Speeds respectively, or double R/W Speed of SATA II products.
