MAGMENT concretes enhance inductive transfer of energy by directing the magnetic field towards the receivers and maximizing the transferred energy.
DYNAMIC WIRELESS CHARGING is now a reality!
The adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is gaining pace worldwide, bringing the charging infrastructure into focus.
Countries and municipalities are seeing the benefits of powering public roads and transportation fleets with electricity since its infrastructure needs have become more feasible, achievable and affordable.
The next and final step in the evolution of EV charging is wireless charging: there is a worldwide accepted standard, and it is perceived as an enabling technology for autonomous driving.
A handful of companies offer commercial solutions for static charging, while the vehicle is parked.
However, wireless charging holds its biggest promise in dynamic charging, while the vehicle is in motion.
In order to do wireless charging of EVs at high efficiency, a focused magnetic field is required between transmitter and receive coils, which necessitates powerful attributes and properties, specially in the transmitter coil.
This patented material has the mechanical properties of concrete, thus making it durable and compatible with materials currently used in road surfaces. It can be equally used for both static and dynamic charging.
MAGMENT concrete makes the charging unit as robust as the pavement whilst also protecting the road’s structural performance.
MAGMENT CONCRETE HIGHLIGHTS
95% ENERGY TRANSMISSION EFFICIENCY
The advantage lies in the versatile shaping of the substrate to maximise transmission efficiency. The material can be also used for the receiver in the vehicle due to its low density, hence the substrate's weight.
This in combination with Magment’s proprietary Metamaterial Magnetic Field Concentrator makes our wireless charging modules the most efficient in the industry.
HARMLESS TO THE HUMAN BODY
According to the International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP 2010), magnetic field exposure for living objects should be below 27 µT.
Wireless charging, specially with MAGMENT, comply and measure a very low value compared to EAS and metal detectors.
The magnetic properties of Magment are generated by ferrite particles used as magnetic filler in a cement matrix.
These ferrite particles are obtained from recycled material from the ferrite industry and from the rapidly growing mount of electronic waste.
Very low CO2 footprint.
The concrete is fully integrable into existing roads, highways, parking lots, ports, buildings, etc.
It's very cost efficient, doesn't need maintenance and is vandalism-proof since the entire system is installed underground.
