IoT networks often involve a significant number of devices, and the operational costs can be substantial. These include the costs of energy consumption, maintenance, and equipment replacement. By enhancing the energy efficiency and durability of IoT devices, the Indium Infuser can help organizations achieve significant cost savings.
Dependence on Grid Power
In some areas, grid power may not be available or reliable, limiting the deployment of IoT solutions. Solar power solutions often depend on sunlight and are not effective in low-light or indoor conditions. The Indium Infuser, with its unique ability to harvest light from as low as 50 lux, can operate effectively indoors and in other low-light conditions, making it versatile and adaptable to various deployment scenarios.
Companies that utilize Internet of Things (IoT), regardless of industry, run into the same challenges:
Unreliable Power Supply
Depending on the location, IoT devices may not have access to a reliable power supply. This lack of power can lead to sensor downtime and data loss, leading to sub-optimal decisions. The Indium Infuser provides a reliable source of power by harnessing available light, even in low-light conditions.
With increasing awareness about environmental sustainability, many organizations are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint. Traditional power solutions for IoT devices often rely on non-renewable energy sources, which contribute to carbon emissions. The Indium Infuser uses a renewable energy source - light - thereby promoting a more sustainable and eco-friendly solution.
Frequent Battery Replacement
IoT devices often operate in remote or hard-to-reach places. Changing batteries frequently is not just inconvenient but also costly in terms of labor and downtime. The Indium Infuser, by extending the battery life of IoT sensors, minimizes the frequency of battery replacement, thereby reducing maintenance costs and effort.
We disrupt how the industrial IoT market is powered, with our revolutionary technological innovations, by enabling manufacturers to easily implement both small and enterprise solutions.
Our cutting-edge technology harvests four different energy sources from the environment: light, vibration, thermal and radio frequency. This enables devices to be autonomous, maintenance free and sustainable.
Our cost effective organic solar panel is capable of efficiently generating power from indoor ambient light as low as 50 lux.
Working with UAlberta, we have developed a multi-frequency, ambient RF harvesting technology free of transmitters.
Our cutting edge thermoelectric generator is so sensitive that it can power a smart watch with just the heat from your wrist.
We continue to develop our piezoelectric technology (turning vibrations into electricity) with pinpoint frequency matching.
Battery Power is the
NOT THE SOLUTION
Most IoT devices are powered by Li-ion batteries,
which have serious sustainability concerns.
The demand for lithium is expected to exceed supply by 2025, driving costs ever higher. Moreover, these batteries are volatile, demand extensive maintenance and perform poorly in cold temperatures.
OUR JOURNEY SO FAR
Industrial IoT is currently expensive for any company to implement, with most vendors targeting niche sectors within industries to drive costs higher.
Element 4 stands to disrupt this antiquated approach by providing solutions to companies at all revenue levels.
