Freevolt

Power consumption is mission critical for IoT networks to ensure that they can be deployed ‘everywhere’ and accessed ‘any time’ from ‘anywhere’ at a low cost. FreevoltTM is an innovative, patented and patent-pending wireless charging technology that uses wireless radio frequency (RF) harvesting of existing wireless and broadcast transmissions to trickle charge the sensor devices when sufficient RF density is available, and inductive power transfer (IPT) using a dedicated transmitter.


Customer Success Story

"Working closely with Drayson Technologies will allow us to integrate Freevolt's innovative wireless charging features into our products while keeping energy use to the minimum. Furthermore, as we continue to drive miniaturisation, Freevolt's flexibility is enabling us to explore the use of the technology in different platforms"

RF Harvesting Applications

Sensors

Smart Homes & Buildings have multiple sensors and devices to help us better control our home environment. FreevoltTM can remove the worry of battery swaps and cable charging for many of these sensors making the smart home far simpler to manage. Building sensors, powered by FreevoltTM can be built into the very fabric of new offices or homes enabling architects and designers to monitor and measure everything from air flows, temperatures, stress factors and vibration, bringing a new level of architectural pre- and post-construction monitoring to building design and control.

Beacons

Beacons will change the way we engage with our favourite brands, improve communication flow and automate information delivery. And they can all be powered by FreevoltTM, extending the lifetime between battery changes. This will enable beacons to be deployed in locations where it is hazardous, impractical, environmentally insensitive or too expensive to change batteries

Wearables

Wearable tech has gone mainstream and some of the hottest low energy wearable devices on the planet are now ones on your wrists, arms, faces and part of your clothes. Many of these devices can be powered by FreevoltTM to extend the battery life, improving user experience and customer retention.
