CaPow, a perpetual energy resolution supplier, introduced it raised a $7.5 million Seed spherical to scale up the commercialization of its battery-free, wi-fi, vitality supply eco-system for autonomous robotics. This resolution gives steady energy for automated robotic environments whereas eliminating robotic downtime attributable to charging. The spherical was led by IL Ventures, a VC fund centered on disruptive applied sciences for legacy industries, with co-investment from Mobilion VC, Payton Planar Magnetics, Doral Vitality-Tech Ventures, Mobilitech Capital, and Mr. Ray Nissan, a distinguished angel investor.
At this time, many automated options depend on batteries for energy provide. This dependency results in a number of inherent inefficiencies equivalent to charging downtime and rampant prices as a result of want for extra robots to interchange those which can be being charged. Furthermore, conventional batteries have a detrimental environmental impression, as they create security hazards and are an operational “headache” since they require a devoted procurement technique, particular delivery, dealing with, storage and recycling.
CaPow addresses the first bottleneck for automation: the problem of offering dependable, cost-effective, and non-pollutive vitality. By providing constant energy stream for cell robots, CaPow’s vitality supply eco-system permits automated robotic options to repeatedly function with no vitality depletion downtime whereas ending the idea of reliance on legacy batteries. CaPow’s “battery-free”, paradigm-shifting resolution is being properly obtained alongside the logistics worth chain, as it’s validated to chop down the scale of the required robotic fleet, improve throughput and enhance the ROI of automation.

CaPow’s proprietary resolution facilitates optimum energy switch with large and dynamic capabilities. It accommodates a number of customers, in addition to the presence of steel and particles in and across the vitality switch subject. As well as, it helps giant distances between the transmitting and receiving ends, in addition to large spatial protection. This gives substantial energy ranges with optimum end-to-end effectivity. The worth of CaPow’s expertise additional expands to the broader mobility market with a variety of purposes.
Mr. Amir Fishelov joins CaPow’s Board of Administrators as Chairman of the Board, leveraging his twenty years of expertise as Co-Founding father of SolarEdge (Nasdaq: SEDG), a pioneer and international chief in sensible vitality expertise. At SolarEdge, a $17B firm, Mr. Fishelov served as Chief Architect in addition to VP of Technique and Company Growth, main large-scale and sophisticated vitality administration initiatives.
“With the backing of our buyers and strategic companions, CaPow is difficult robotic producers, automation resolution suppliers, and facility operators to alter their definition of operational effectivity”, says Prof. Mor Peretz, Co-Founder & CEO at CaPow. “We stay up for accelerating our product improvement to fulfill sturdy market demand for our revolutionary and confirmed expertise. The corporate will use the proceeds from the funding spherical to expedite enterprise development in markets around the globe.”
“At IL Ventures, we align intently with CaPow’s mission of making a sustainable, battery-free energy provide for the trade,” says Yoni Heilbronn, Managing Companion at IL Ventures. “We’re excited to put money into an distinctive and confirmed expertise, which is a recreation changer for all the robotic energy panorama.”
“I’m very proud BGN Applied sciences took half in bringing CaPow’s revolutionary expertise to the market,” says Zafrir Levi, VP Precise Sciences at BGN, the commercialization arm of the Ben-Gurion College. “We wholeheartedly consider in CaPow’s Perpetual Energy resolution, and this funding is proof of the corporate’s superior expertise and for the large potential for disrupting the trade during which it operates”.
