Press Release: July 23, 2020
8power, a company bringing the benefits of vibration energy harvesting (VEH) sensors to industry is delighted to announce that it has been named by Gartner as one of the Cool Vendors in IoT Thingification in Gartner’s “Cool Vendors in IoT Thingification,” Bill Ray, et al, 14 May 2020.
Said Paul Egan, CEO of 8power, “We are thrilled to be named a Cool Vendor by Gartner. Our innovative energy harvesting sensors are designed to help industry improve efficiency, save money and reduce carbon footprint. In our view, this Gartner recognition validates our vision of helping water companies overcome resource limitations to diagnose problems with motorised assets early, reducing downtime and catastrophic failure.
We believe that the problem of powering systems in the field at low cost, efficiently and for extended periods has remained unsolved. Wired power is an option but comes with the costs and reliability of installing cables in an industrial environment. Batteries provide an alternative power solution and are good in certain applications. What is really needed is a renewable power source that can operate maintenance free, for up to 10 years. 8power VEH delivers this with its energy harvesting sensors.”
