Ossia partners in the US, UK, and EU may now license Cota Real Wireless Power for commercial, industrial, and business uses, including non-residential logistics processes without any distance limitations.
Cota is the first certified system to deliver the highest level of radio frequency (RF) power without requiring a motion detector or an exclusion zone.
Ossia’s Cota Technology is the only wireless power technology certified for use at unlimited distance.
FCC Certified Under Parts 15 and 18
Current certification enables Cota to be marketed and sold in the U.S. without any distance limitations. Ossia is the first company to ever receive this approval for unlimited distance in the US.
This certification also demonstrates that Cota meets the standards set up by multiple international regulatory bodies.
Authorization under Part 18 means that Cota technology is authorized to use significant power—about 5W—to send power to devices at any distance.
CE and UK Mark Approved
Ossia has also met the standards to use the CE and UK (UK Conformity Assessed) marks on Cota-enabled products that send and receive power wirelessly, without any distance limitation, in the EU and UK.
Cota Forever Tracker
Our FCC certifications include coverage of the Cota Forever Tracker™, our wireless power system that simultaneously and automatically charges multiple trackers in a commercial fleet without the need for cables, charging pads, or specific placement orientation. The CE and UK marks may be used on any Cota-enabled product, including the Forever Tracker.
List of Countries
The Cota technology FCC approval has key differentiators to any other approval currently on the market including:
In addition to the FCC differentiators, Cota technology is the very first RF-based non-line-of-sight, wireless power technology at-a-distance product to receive EU/UK Type Examination Certificates and that can bear both the CE and UK marks.
This FCC certification has commercial value for Ossia and its customers—it proves the core capabilities of Cota for wireless power delivery safely in the presence of people. This certification opens the door for future device and transmitter certifications on a range of devices and products our customers want to bring to market.
The first such approval and certification the FCC granted Ossia on October 3, 2019 is for its asset tracking system, the Cota Forever Tracker. The wireless power delivery for this system is certified under Part 18 of the FCC’s rules.
The Forever Tracker is the first-of-its-kind Internet of Things (IoT) asset tracking solution that enables efficient mass charging of multiple IoT asset trackers, without the need for wires, cables, charging pads, or specific placement orientation. These high-performance IoT asset trackers enable real-time tracking of high-value assets, including semi-trailers, crates, pallets, and packages. This latest FCC certification enables Ossia to market and sell this innovative wireless power solution in the United States.
The CE and UK marks are available for use in commercial as well as consumer applications in the UK and EU.
Cota technology delivers the highest level of RF power over air, certified up to one meter using a Cota transmitter operating at 2.4 GHz.
Cota Real Wireless Power delivers meaningful power to devices at a distance while meeting all of the FCC’s stringent Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) requirements for safety. The Type of Examination Certificates received from an EU Notified Body and UK Conformity Assessment Body confirm the Cota system’s compliance with the radio, emissions, immunity, and RF safety standards applicable under the EU Radio Equipment Directive and the UK Radio Equipment Regulation.
With over 102 patents globally and 224 active utility patent assets, Ossia has been developing Cota Real Wireless Power for many years. In addition, Ossia has garnered substantial investment and commercial traction from leading companies across several industries that have expressed interest in the application of Cota technology for their applications.
