Everactive designed its sensors to withstand harsh industrial environments so it may monitor various assets to deliver critical insights
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — December 11, 2019— Based on its recent analysis of the North American Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Everactive with the 2019 North America New Product Innovation Award for pioneering batteryless IIoT systems. The company’s end-to-end platform is unmatched in its ability to deliver exceptional performance entirely off harvested energy, allowing customers to, cut costs, reduce downtime, enhance safety, and lower environmental impact. The platform empowers operators with actionable insights, giving them time to identify and analyze potential problems and take corrective action.
Everactive develops proprietary ultra-low-power silicon technology that simultaneously delivers both batteryless and continuous operation. On top of its core chip technology, Everactive has built out its self-powered sensor devices, as well as the networking, software, and cloud analytics necessary to present fully integrated connectivity solutions. Everactive purpose-built its batteryless Eversensors to offer a continuous stream of data regarding asset health. The sensors, which are placed throughout a facility, report through a gateway that connects thousands of Eversensors to the Evercloud dashboard—a cloud-based analytics service displaying insights, alerts, and raw data acquired from the devices.
“Everactive’s key differentiator is its sensors, which operate entirely on harvested energy such as indoor solar, outdoor solar, and thermal gradients. By eliminating the need for batteries, the company minimizes maintenance requirements, enabling customers to realize their IIoT goals by scattering wireless, connected devices at scale,” said Vikrant Gandhi, Industry Research Director at Frost & Sullivan. “Besides, Everactive’s machine health monitoring solution maximizes returns on IIoT initiatives, improving overall equipment effectiveness while lowering electricity consumption, and extending machine lifetime.”
Everactive’s sensors recently earned IP66 Class 1 Division 2 certification, confirming the company’s dedication to high-quality, reliable, and safe technology. The strict certification standards include installations in potentially hazardous locations with the risk of explosion or fire hazards caused by flammable liquids, gases, or vapors. The batteryless sensors generate a continuous stream of real-time data and apply artificial intelligence to make the sensor ‘smarter’ with each collection.
“Everactive’s devices are always on—listening and sending data—all from the same harvested energy source. The platform and sensors do not require any specialized skills to deploy, take roughly two to four minutes to integrate, and come with a magnet for secure and simple attachment,” noted Gandhi. “Overall, the platform delivers both low-power levels and continuous monitoring, which is a breakthrough in the market and a strong competitive advantage.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that develops an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased return on investment (ROI) it gives customers, which, in turn, raises customer acquisition and overall market penetration potential.
Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.
