Inductive Power Transfer (IPT) uses magnetic fields to transfer power from transmitter (track) to receiver (pickup) instead of cables or brushes.
An IPT system is inherently safer than a conventional wired system. The elimination of cable connections between track and pickup mean that broken exposed wires are a thing of the past. The high frequency used (10kHz to 40kHz) cannot cause electrocution in the unlikely event of contact with an exposed live wire or terminal.
Auckland Wireless Power was the first to be successfully commercialised and applied in a wide variety of fields. Applications
cover power ranges of a few watts to over 100 kilowatts. These include:
