Where in the World is VoltSafe? We’re Coming to a Trade Show Near You…

VoltSafe Blog Team – August 17, 2022

This year, VoltSafe is coming to a town near you to showcase the world’s first high voltage, prongless, magnetic electrical connector, and the technology behind it to industry experts.  We will have the opportunity to showcase how VoltSafe’s devices and technology are going to revolutionize the way we access power by replacing traditional extension cords and smart plugs, with devices that are safe, simple, and smart. Avid users of our VoltSafe Winter magnetic extension cord for engine block heaters already see the difference in their lives and their energy bills, but we are not stopping there.  Our product line continues to expand and we will be featuring them to experts in the
industrial, defence, marine and auto sectors.

In fact, VoltSafe Marine will be making its public debut at the biggest marine B2B show in North America, IBEX. Check out where else we are going to be.

ADAS and Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo  – San Jose, CA – Sept 7-8
This expo features companies that are developing and building next-generation connected and fully autonomous vehicles. The leading expo on the subject in Europe will be in California in September and will showcase developmental tools and service providers to improve ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) and move toward full AVs (Automated Vehicles).

The Expo will feature every tool and service needed for testing and vehicle progression under one roof including lidar, radar, GNSS and ultra-high-performance cables and harnesses. There will also be industry expert speakers presenting at the adjoining conference.

VoltSafe will be in attendance to introduce our Autonomous Charging concept. To become truly autonomous, autonomous electric vehicles need to free themselves from humans. Currently, human operators are needed to manually connect and disconnect the charger. VoltSafe technology unlocks the ability to do this autonomously, reducing the need for large battery packs and human operators. In short, VoltSafe’s Autonomous Charging concept lowers CapEx and OpEx for AVs making AVs truly autonomous.

Autotech Trade Mission – San Francisco, CA – Sept 21-23

METSTRADE SHOW 2022Amsterdam, Netherlands – Nov 15-17
METSTRADE (Marine Equipment Trade Show)  is the world’s largest B2B exhibition of marine equipment, materials and systems. This is THE show -a one-stop-shop for marine industry professionals. It’s quickly become the place to be for all things electric boating. With excellent networking opportunities, a broad range of showcased innovation and located in Amsterdam, VoltSafe is thrilled to be attending for the very first time. 

As boaters shift to electric vessels, they are currently forced to use off-the-shelf car EV-chargers. These chargers are not designed for use around salt or water and are thus unsafe for the marine environment. VoltSafe technology mitigates this elevated risk of corrosion and boat fires, and can become the standard for marine-specific EV-charging. We’re excited to connect with pioneers in the electric boating space and build out our roster of launch partners.

Best Defence Conference   –  London, ON – Nov 16-17
The Best Defence Conference is a premier defence conference and exhibition that provides attendees with opportunities to forge strategic partnerships, develop supply chains, and learn of Canadian procurement programs. Based in the heart of Canada’s automotive manufacturing corridor between Detroit and the GTA, its focus is on land systems and vehicles, along with cybersecurity. 

The conference will place VoltSafe’s technology and products in front of prime contractors, military and procurement specialists in the Canadian Defence sector. The autonomous charging concept appears to be of particular interest, along with a breakaway cord for shore power for armoured vehicles or for generators at remote operating bases.

Boating BCRichmond, BC – Nov 23-24
Professionals in the recreational boating industry in British Columbia meet annually in November over two days to learn, connect and share ideas. VoltSafe expects to be in attendance eager to connect with marine professionals and sign up launch partners in our own backyard.
