Swift Sensors Launches Series 3 – The First IoT Platform With One-Press Activation, Predictive Alerts and 6-8 Year Battery Life

Swift Sensors | October 28, 2020

Swift Sensors dispatches its new Series 3 remote sensor framework with huge enhancements in wireless range, battery life, durability and ease of deployment. Series 3, re-engineered from the ground up by Swift Sensors, incorporates cutting-edge BLE5 technology with the Nordic nRF52840 SoC’s on-chip cryptography, multiprotocol communication and power management features to: Three times the sensor range, up to 300 feet, for use in large facilities. Four times the number of sensors (up to 150) that each gateway can securely support, for broader and more detailed sensor coverage. Extended sensor battery life of six to eight years, five times the previous version, to reduce maintenance and sensor downtime. “We designed our industrial sensor system from the ground-up to be simple to deploy and use,” said Ray Almgren, CEO of Swift Sensors. “Our new sensors and gateways will drive mainstream adoption of IoT in the industrial markets. Customer feedback over the past several years has also driven configuration, deployment, and durability improvements in the wireless system.” For instance, the main clump of 12 Series 3 sensors incorporates a predictive vibration sensor that adds top-to-top, RMS and peak factor checking. This brings down the passage cost of modern gear predictive maintenance (PdM) for clients who need to diminish their vacation and support costs. Other improvements in the Series 3 platform include: A water-resistant (IP 67) sensor enclosure for extra durability in harsh environments. “Instant On” one-touch sensor activation for immediate measurements with zero configuration needed. “Find My Sensor” console button that blinks a green LED on the deployed sensor to identify it. An internet status LED that shows if the gateway is connected to the internet, connected locally or not connected. Enhanced web app and LED indicators that simplify gateway Wi-Fi setup. An optional USB cellular network module for deployments when ethernet and WiFi are not available. “Using advanced BLE5 communication protocols we have developed a world-class data delivery system to optimize range, reliability, and security of the Series 3 sensors,” said Dean Drako, founder and executive chairman of Swift Sensors. “Our cloud-based wireless monitoring system now offers a breadth of common measurements using the latest IoT technology.” Swift Sensors intends to deliver extra Series 3 sensors soon to gauge sound, light, weight, movement and the presence of unsafe gasses. Swift Sensors Series 3 segments are accessible on the organization's site at swiftsensors.com and through the Swift Sensors worldwide affiliate organization.

Tele2 IoT enables electric vehicle wireless charging on the move through a new agreement with Elonroad

Tele2 IoT | November 29, 2021

Tele2 IoT is taking a step forward in the field of electric vehicle charging infrastructure and towards a sustainable automotive industry by providing connection of equipment to Elonroad, which has developed technology for electric roads where electric vehicles can be charged while driving. Elonroad, a startup based in Lund, Sweden, has developed a solution in the form of an electric road where all kinds of electric vehicles - cars, buses, and trucks - regardless of manufacturer, can be charged while they are driving. With more and more electric vehicles on the roads, charging while driving will reduce bottlenecks and also enable smaller batteries. The solution consists of a rail that is integrated with the road by being installed directly on the asphalt. The rails can withstand all weather conditions and short rail segments are driven individually, which provides a high level of safety. Our smart electric road needs to be connected to the internet in order for us to be able to control, optimize, and collect payments from users. The agreement with Tele2 is business-critical for us on our continued journey, says Karin Ebbinghaus, CEO of Elonroad. Through 2CONTROL, Tele2 IoT's platform for managing connected devices, Elonroad will be able to monitor and manage its IoT subscriptions. Elonroad's service includes an integrated control system for individual measurement of each vehicle's usage and can also analyze road conditions, such as where there are potential hazards, which can then be communicated to prevent accidents. Elonroad is an exciting startup with a solution that will be critical to achieve the goal of a fossil-independent vehicle fleet by 2030. By making 5G available, we secure Elonroad's digital solution and ensure a reliable connection. As soon as 5G becomes available where Elonroad builds its electric roads, larger amounts of data that require low latency can e handled, such as the transfer of data from cameras. We are very proud to be a part of Elonroad's continued journey. Stefan Trampus, EVP B2B at Tele2 About Tele2 IoT At Tele2 IoT connectivity there is the support at which the world class connectivity and the IoT enabling services enable you to successfully digitize and manage your business. Connectivity is the foundation of IoT, with everything else – SIM cards, connectivity and subscription management platforms, Service Management, access services and professional services – being built upon this essential component of anyone’s IoT solution. So, while everyone’s IoT Journey is different you need a connectivity partner who is ready to help you not only digitize and manage your business, but also innovate and develop it. IoT is continually maturing, with new technological developments and new possibilities taking things to the next level. Having the right connectivity partner who understands where we are as well as where we are going can make the difference between failure and success.Tele2 IoT simply connects the world – and gives the tools needed to make IoT solution a success. About Elonroad Elonroad develops a new type of electric road. It´s a conductive rail placed on the road. A pic up on the vehicle connects automaticly and charge the batteries. A holistic charging solution for all electric vehicles – commercial or private, light or heavy, autonomous or not, to use while driving or parked. Data heavy, highly connected and fully automatic! The system can be used to build charging infrastructure such as electric roads, charging stations and opportunity chargers at stops and loading bays.The demonstration of 1km of electric road for a city bus 2020 is in the City of Lund in Sweden.
