Plugless (Evatran) Opens Sales For Developer Demo Systems
February 24th, 2017 by James Ayre
Evatran has begun taking orders for Plugless demo systems. These would be used by those looking to integrate such systems with their various electric vehicle or robotics technologies, according to an email sent to CleanTechnica.
The overarching idea is that interested parties can “leapfrog the large expense of original or licensed development of high-powered inductive charging” and rely on Plugless’s years of experience instead.
The company is offering both 3.6 kW and 7.2 kW Plugless demonstration systems, according to the email. The full 3.6 kW demo system runs $5,999, and the full 2nd Generation 7.2 kW system runs $12,999.
“With the exponential growth of technologies relying on electric motors, and companies exploring varying degrees of autonomy, wireless inductive charging is a popular feature set in product development,” commented Ned Freeman, VP of Marketing and Sales for Evatran. “Our demo system customers appreciate starting with a working system that has already provided more than 900,000 charge hours in every conceivable environment and across a wide variety of platforms.”
The email notes that Plugless systems have been used by a variety of fleet operators, research institutes, and military programs; as well as in conjunction with the operation of autonomous shuttle bus systems.
The new demo systems feature complete, functioning benchtop wireless charging systems paired with a vehicle simulator.
There’s reportedly a limited supply of these systems, so interested parties may want to snap one up sooner rather than later.
