A revolution in everyday life
Output

The energy performance of a Wysips® Crystal screen varies depending on the photovoltaic material used. Our technology works with all thin-film PV materials.

Transparent

wysips_glass_02
This Wysips® Glass prototype offers 70% transparency for an output of 30 W/m2 . In this configuration, it can power an electronic window dimming system without needing to be connected to the traditional power grid.

Energy Independence

wysips_cameleon_02
Thanks to Wysips® Cameleon, the first energy-generating billboards now function without being connected to the power grid. Their scrolling surface can range from 2 to 20m² (21 to 215 sq. ft.) This project has been developed in partnership with Prismaflex International.

Wysips®: When Optics meets Photovoltaics

The inspiration for our Wysips® components came from the study of lenticular images, which allow observers to see different images depending on the viewing angle.
When micro-lenses are combined with two flat, layered images, the eye can only see one of those images at a time depending on the observer’s position. These layered images can be used to produce 3D or animated effects. Some 3D screens operate using this lenticular technology. Wysips® uses the optical effect generated by the lenticular network to mask the photovoltaic cells and capture energy from artificial light or the sun.

“Yield and transparency: the market demands these functions. The world of tomorrow begins today! Considering the stockpile of portable items we carry around with us, we’re going to need clothing, luggage, and objects capable of generating the energy we need to power all of these mobile devices!”

3 Mature Technologies

Sunpartner Group is revolutionizing our daily life with Wysips®—What You See Is Photovoltaic Surface—transforming any surface into a solar panel that can generate its own energy from natural or artificial light.

Our three Wysips® technologies are based on assembling a thin, photovoltaic surface with a network of micro-lenses that makes the cells invisible to the naked eye. These photovoltaic cells activate from the moment they are exposed to light, whether natural or artificial, and charge the battery or power the equipment they are connected to.

  1. 3 Advantages of Wysips®
  2. ThinOur component is 0.5 mm (0.02 in) thin or less.
  3. PowerfulUp to 5 milliWatt-peak/cm², soon to be doubled thanks to second-generation PV materials.
  4. TransparentWith up to 90% transparency, it can be integrated into the most demanding screens.
  5. LiFiWysips® Crystal-Connect enables screens to generate their own power while transmitting data at the same time by LiFi (Light Fidelity).

Wysips® Crystal

Mobile, Energy-Saving Screens
Designed to function in all kinds of devices, Wysips® Crystal works with all screen technologies: MEMMS, bi-stable, LCD, OLED, optical screen, etc. Integrated during the manufacturing process, under or on top of the touchscreen, it connects to an electronic chip that converts and manages the photovoltaic electricity. Ultra-thin and transparent, Wysips® Crystal entirely preserves visual quality and functionality—even increasing the viewing angle for certain screens.

LiFi Connected Screens
Wysips® Crystal’s version Wysips® Connect transforms any screen into a solar panel that can generate its own electricity AND send/receive data through light (LiFi-Light Fidelity technology). The solar cells act as light receptors. Wysips® Connect transforms that light into electricity AND decodes it, enabling it to transmit signals and information.

Wysips® Glass

Windows Full of Energy
Integrated into the glazing, Wysips® Glass enables the window to produce enough energy to power the latest window features, such as electronic dimming. The window also generates enough energy to power other electrical devices nearby. It powerful output varies depending on the degree of transparency desired, from 50-90%.
Main Markets: Transportation, Construction, Solar Greenhouses

Wysips® Cameleon

Smart Display
Wysips® Cameleon can be integrated into the structure or the surface of opaque and static material. Wysips® Cameleon can also change the surface’s appearance by adding colors, logos, or messages. It can electrically power the mechanical system, lighting, or any other feature that consumes a lot of energy. Ranging up to 20 m² (215 sq. ft) in size, Wysips® Cameleon works with structures of all shapes and sizes.
