November 15, 2022

Energous-powered demonstrations include the company’s first wirelessly powered CO2 sensors, Wiliot IoT Pixel Tags, and evaluation kits for Wireless Power Networks

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Energous Corporation (NASDAQ: WATT), a leading developer of RF-based charging for wireless power networks for IoT, today announced that the company will be demonstrating its advanced wireless power network technology and WattUp-powered partner products at its booth at electronica 2022 in Munich, Germany November 15-18.

Demonstrations at the Energous booth (#C2.561) at electronica 2022 include:

  • CO2 Sensor Demo with Sensirion: Showcase of maintenance-free CO2 sensors powered wirelessly over the air from Energous WattUp PowerBridges for Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) improvement in industrial and commercial applications.
  • Wall of Wiliot: An augmented reality experience of real-time data being received from Wiliot’s Internet of Things (IoT) Pixels, energized by WattUp PowerBridges. This unique and immersive experience enables visitors to easily visualize the behaviors of data transfer that can otherwise not be seen.
  • Wirelessly Powered Electronic Shelf Labels (ESL): Demonstration of ESLs powered by Energous WattUp technology for IoT and retail applications.
  • Wirelessly Powered Sensor Evaluation Kit: In partnership with Atmosic, Energous will highlight its Wirelessly Powered Sensor evaluation kit, which combines an Energous 1W WattUp PowerBridge with two Atmosic-based battery-free sensors and a mobile application to receive sensor data via Bluetooth LE.
  • Wireless Energy Harvesting Evaluation Kit: In partnership with e-peas, this Wireless Energy Harvesting Evaluation Kit gives attendees a hands-on experience with Energous’ award-winning Wireless Power Networks technology and e-peas’ energy harvesting management chip for applications such as ESLs, asset trackers, sensors, BLE beacons and other small devices.

“The explosion of IoT devices in recent years has highlighted a growing hurdle for deployments: how to provide this expanding industry and its devices with reliable and consistent power without relying on batteries or power cables," said Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous. “Energous has been developing a range of wireless power solutions across various applications designed to solve this industry bottleneck and we are excited to showcase them for electronica 2022 attendees.”

electronica 2022, which takes place from November 15 to 18, will bring the international electronics industry together at the Munich exhibition grounds under the motto “Driving sustainable progress.” Through products and solutions, exhibitors at the world’s leading trade fair, ranging from start-ups to global corporations, will show what role electronics plays in paving the way for sustainable technologies for future societal topics. A comprehensive supporting program with conferences and forums offers room for personal and professional exchange.

WattUp PowerBridge transmitters from Energous are capable of charging multiple devices simultaneously at-a-distance using RF-based wireless power. Transmitting from 1W and up to 15W, WattUp PowerBridges send power to and also act as a data link for connected IoT devices such as sensors, Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs), IoT tags, batteryless devices and more. Multiple WattUp PowerBridge transmitters can be meshed together to create a WattUp wireless power network covering unlimited distances for large footprint deployments such as retail stores, industrial warehouses, manufacturing plants, logistics hubs and more. WattUp PowerBridges provide a consistent level of power for IoT devices while ushering in a new reality of batteryless, mobile, waterproof, maintenance-free, and easier-to-implement devices.
