How Does Wireless Charging Work?
Wireless power, also known as inductive coupling, uses narrow magnetic fields that are a natural part of how electrical current moves through wires. It starts by creating a magnetic field around a hidden electrical coil. The receiving device has a hidden coil that can receive the magnetic energy created, thereby transferring power wirelessly.
What Do I Need to Charge my Device Using Corian® Charging Surface?
Some devices already include built-in support for wireless charging. If your device does not have this capability, you can enable your device by plugging a Powermat® wireless charging ring into its charging port or by using a case specifically designed for wireless charging. Cases and adapters are readily available on online stores such as Amazon.com or other electronic retailers.
Does DuPont Offer an Adapter for my Existing Devices?
DuPont offers a Powermat® Wireless Charging Ring which acts as an adapter. It comes in several different variations depending on the type of device you have. The Ring is plugged into your device's charging port and acts as a receiver of the magnetic energy created by the technology embedded in the DuPont™ Corian® solid surface or Zodiaq® quartz surface. Customers can visit our website at www.corian.com/powerup to learn the latest news on compatibility or purchase more rings.
Is Corian® Charging Surface Available for Residential or Commercial Applications?
Both. For all applications, we offer the Individual Wireless Charging unit. This is a single charging unit that, once installed, is a plug-and-play system that works instantly for those who are ready to power up. With the ability to install one or a series of units for multiple users, the Individual unit creates a seamless solution for most settings.
For large commercial customers, the Powermat® Platform is a cloud-based technology that offers the enhancement of full online connectivity for backend management. This option allows venues to offer a useful amenity and harness insightful data through a connected network. A dashboard shows unit utilization and customer length of stay. Remote diagnostic services and customer engagement tactics offer real-time capabilities. Installation of Powermat® units requires third party support, technological integration, and a monthly network connection service fee. Contact a DuPont™ representative to learn more about this unit.
