UL CERTIFIES WAVE’S 50 KW WIRELESS CHARGING SYSTEM
US company Wireless Advanced Vehicle Electrification (WAVE) makes a wireless charging system that provides in-route charging for transit buses, using a pad embedded directly into the roadway.
Now the company has earned a Field Evaluation Certification from Underwriters Laboratories (UL) for a 50 kW system that it has deployed for the Antelope Valley Transit Agency (AVTA), which plans to put 85 BYD electric buses into service over the next five years.
UL Field Evaluations bridge the gap between uncertified equipment and a standards-based installation, allowing customers to feel confident that they can safely operate their newly-installed equipment and that it meets all required regulations. WAVE has long had a relationship with UL through its participation in the SAE Wireless Charging Standards Committee.
