Cordless Electrical Car Charging: The Future is Here!

Cordless Electrical Car ChargingAlso known as wireless charging or inductive charging, cordless car charging uses an electromagnetic field to transfer energy between the charging station and the electric car.

Several manufacturers of electric cars have implemented the technology, including Toyota and Volvo. The charging of the battery of a plug-in hybrid car or a car ran purely by electricity will occur by the car simply parking on top of the charger. This method will cause a transmission of electricity using magnetic resonance occurring from a reaction in magnetic field intensity between a coil placed on the ground underneath the car and a receiving coil built into the bottom of the vehicle.

Wireless car charging technology eliminates the need for the electric or hybrid car to be plugged in and acts as a universal charging station, virtually eliminating the need for multiple car charging plug standards and charging stations.

This technology already exists in many homes and smaller applications (the electric toothbrush for example).

Roughly 15 years have passed since small teams of engineers and a handful of car manufacturers started to tinker with this bold idea.

Further enhancing the experience of wireless charging is a Control Panel device, which can be mounted on the wall opposite to the garage door or on a pedestal mount. For a hassle-free experience, the Control Panel senses your arrival and displays directional arrows for guiding the driver exactly above the charging pad for maximum charging efficiency.

What is GFCI protection and how is it maintained?

Monday, May 6, 2019

Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) devices are required in specific areas of our homes by law.  We must all have GFCI protection in certain parts of our house such as our kitchens, bathrooms, unfinished basements, outside our homes as well as our garages. GFCI devices monitor the electricity between the ungrounded (hot) and grounded (neutral) conductors. If there is an improper imbalance between the two conductors the GFCI will stop the power from exiting the receptacle, so no one gets an electrical shock.
