ABB Recognizes Everactive As Top Technological Solution for its Always-On Self-Powered Industrial IoT technology

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Everactive, maker of category-defining self-powered IoT systems, has been declared the winner of the prestigious ABB Measurement and Analytics Open Innovation Challenge for Technology Solution.

Everactive’s always-on self-powered Industrial IoT technology was chosen as the outstanding solution based on 4 criteria which can be strongly linked to KPIs: data contextualization and readiness (quality of information); ease of set up and implementation; response time and early detection capability; and minimal intrusiveness to the industrial application.

Everactive develops self-powered IoT systems leveraging proprietary ultra-low-power semiconductors, which require 1,000x less power than competing circuits. Everactive’s sensor devices generate enough power from small amounts of “harvested energy” to continuously measure, process and wirelessly transmit equipment health data from a range of industrial assets, resulting in significant energy savings for companies focused on achieving sustainability goals. Everactive Steam Trap Monitoring (STM) and Machine Health Monitoring (MHH) customers already include multinational companies such as Colgate-Palmolive, Hershey’s, Merck and Anheuser-Busch, as well as several universities and the U.S. government.
