P-Tap® is a transparent lamination of conductive and non-conductive glass. The arrangement allows power or data to be transferred across individual layers within the lamination. Pre-machined apertures create taps to the positive and negative charged inner coatings that supply power delivery to embedded devices. These connected devices appear to be freely floating within an optically clear glass panel with no visible means of power connection.
Removing the need for wires offers designers, architects and engineers limitless design opportunities to locate powered devices within transparent structures. Devices such as USB sockets, induction charging pads, motors, cameras, sensors and digital displays can all be seamlessly integrated.
Early applications include LED lit display cases and shelving units for museums and induction charging ‘smart’ tables for high-end retail stores. Wider applications span a multitude of markets including Architecture, Security, Automotive, Retail and Lighting.
Commercial agreements to utilise the P-Tap® IP and tech are underway. Initial partnerships include leading touch-screen display manufacturer www.zytronic.co.uk, a global glass company and a leading showcase manufacturer. All will see products to market throughout 2021/22. For direct enquires to purchase Power Tap® glass please contact Zytronic.
