Energous Corporation | March 30, 2023
Energous Corporation, a leading developer of intelligent wireless power networks, and Thinaer, a leading industrial IoT SaaS platform provider, today announced a partnership to bring innovative wireless charging technology to the industrial IoT market. Thinaer will incorporate Energous' wireless power transfer technology as part of a joint offering to help organizations improve efficiency, reduce costs, and enhance outcomes in a variety of settings including industrial manufacturing and warehousing.
Thinaer's platform enables customers to seamlessly generate a digital twin of their operations and achieve measurable results. The combined solution harnesses Thinaer's powerful platform and Energous' innovative wireless charging hardware to provide energy efficient solutions with low-cost passive BLE tags for asset tracking and environmental monitoring. The solution can identify process gaps, improvement opportunities and inefficiencies with advanced analytics within the manufacturing and warehousing environment.
"Industrial IoT is going through a major digital transformation to maximize overall productivity and improve operational efficiencies, and Thinaer is a pioneer in driving that force," said Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous. "The partnership between Energous and Thinaer aims to solve this growing challenge for industrial IoT and provides an additional building block in the creation of the IoT ecosystem. Thinaer's system integration capability enables Energous' wireless power network technology to be successfully installed at customer sites. We are excited for the future of this collaboration. "
"Energous emerged as a leader in wireless power technologies for the IoT industry. Its technology is reliable, easy to use and robust for the industrial environment, making them an ideal partner to collaborate with on developing a joint solution for our customers," said Bryan Merckling, CEO at Thinaer. "The expansion of IoT devices across our customers' industries has increased the power demands and unique needs of IoT deployments. We are now able to solve new and unique challenges for our customers using our combined solutions. For example, classified areas where the highest levels of security require that assets tagged with beacons are not broadcasting a signal when within those areas, can now leverage IoT beacons. We are enthusiastic about the many digital transformation opportunities this partnership will enable."
Energous PowerBridges are driving transformation across the industrial IoT. These devices not only have the capability of wirelessly charging multiple devices simultaneously from a distance using RF-based wireless power, but they can also function as data links for connected IoT devices. This enables them to communicate valuable data and insights back to the cloud. Multiple PowerBridge transmitters can be meshed together, creating a wireless power network that covers unlimited distances for large-scale deployments such as industrial warehouses, manufacturing plants, and logistics hubs across a wide range of industries.
