Qualcomm to speak on WEVC at The Battery Show & Charging Infrastructure Expo

Novi, Mich., November 1, 2012 – As electric vehicle adoption continues to grow, companies are improving charging technologies to suit the needs of drivers. The organizers of The Battery Show announced today that Qualcomm will present a seminar on wireless electric vehicle charging (WEVC) – at The Battery Show & Charging Infrastructure Expo in Novi, Mich., on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2012.


Qualcomm HaloTM WEVC technology uses resonant inductive wireless energy transfer to eliminate the plug-in cord used in most electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). The technology allows charging across a bigger air gap, making it more flexible for different vehicles and charging configurations. Drivers can charge their vehicle battery easily, by simply parking in a space equipped with the technology.

"Having a leader in wireless technology presenting furthers our commitment to offering a conference that addresses real issues in the industry," said Adam Moore, exhibition director.

The seminar will provide industry leaders with a comprehensive overview of the advantages of the WEVC system, design considerations and configuration options.

Qualcomm will provide the opening keynote presentation at the co-located Charging Infrastructure Expo, a conference that brings businesses and government groups together, focusing on operation and installation of charging infrastructure. Qualcomm also has a stand at the show, B210 in the Charging Infrastructure Expo zone. The company also will exhibit, joining global leaders from the battery and charging industries in a 130,000 square foot hall featuring more than 200 companies.

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide

Introducing RockIt Smart Slide - the ultimate solution for fast and easy installation of the rail-less RockIt racking system on composition shingle roofs. Smart Slide conforms to UL 441 and TAS 100 (A)-95 for wind and wind-driven rain, providing a super-strong watertight seal that is achieved through compression, in most cases without the need for additional sealant. The waterproofing sealant is embedded deep into the granules of the shingle, thanks to the integrated flexible foam layer that provides cushioning. This ensures a secure fit that conforms to any architectural-style shingle. With UltraGrip Technology™, you can rely on a secure installation, as it absorbs the movement created by thermal expansion and contraction. The pre-installed sealing pads are compatible with all composition shingle roofs, making it the ideal choice, even in ambient temperatures as low as 5 degrees.
