The NSG Group has collaborated with Cohda Design Limited (UK) to create new glass applications that deliver power to devices without the need for wires.
NSG Group will supply its NSG TEC™ electrically conductive glass to customers of Cohda, which will combine the product with its Power-Tap (P-Tap) wireless power technology. P-Tap technology allows electricity or data to be transferred wirelessly through a transparent conductive coating to power any device. This allows glass to act as a wire, transferring power out through contact alone.
Electricity typically flows into the glass via a connection at the perimeter of the glass surface. This creates the positive and negative charge, which flows invisibly through individual layers within the conductive glass’ lamination and into any connected device placed on apertures, or contact points, on its surface.
The collaboration has a vast array of applications for designers, architects and engineers to locate powered devices within transparent structures. Early applications have included retail, where in-store display stands can wirelessly charge electronic devices such as mobile phones and cameras; and in automotive, to power head-up display screens that are embedded in a vehicle’s windshield.
