Since March, two of TWS Logistics’ vehicles have been equipped with Nanopower's wireless sensors. This is not something new in the industry, but the system includes a new and potentially game-changing addition; a power saving technology that makes the sensor last for years longer than competitive products, enabling them to be fully integrated in crates and not subject to frequent maintenance.
“It is easy to make low power solutions by lowering the monitoring frequency. Instead, Nanopower monitors temperature with a few seconds interval and a high accuracy while still outperforming other solutions on battery life. This means that any device will detect short deviations to ensure sender and recipient of the quality of the delivered items”, explains Tore Irgens Kuhnle, CEO of Nanopower.
ENABLING INDUSTRIAL-SCALE IoT SOLUTIONS
Frequently changing batteries of sensors in two Swedish trucks, is of course no problem. But for an industrial scale system, the number of batteries and the interval of which they must be replaced, determines how many sensors can be effectively installed and managed.
