It not only functions uninterrupted when ambient light is available but also functions continuously for up to seven days in the dark
Powered by indoor solar cells that are made from biodegradable materials, ELSYS will be launching the ERS ECO series of battery-free products using Epishine’s indoor light energy harvesting solution. The series includes two sensor types called ERS Eco and ERS Eco CO2.
Sensors powered with Epishine’s indoor light energy harvesting modules do not only function uninterrupted when ambient light is available but also function continuously for up to seven days in the dark. This results in a solution with very low or no maintenance and with no need to ever change batteries again.
“We are incredibly excited to release a new product line powered by indoor light and made of more durable materials. Combining a great solar cell with new technology and sustainable materials is completely in line with how we at ELSYS want our product development to be. We are proud to present a new product that will simplify installation and maintenance while reducing the CO2 footprint.” says Peter Björk, CEO at ELSYS.
The ERS ECO series enables customers to have complete control over their air quality and indoor environment, thus saving money and enabling battery-free operation that reduces the CO2 footprint even further.
”ELSYS has taken sustainability to a new level within IoT and building automation sensors with the new ERS Eco sensor line. We are proud to be their partner, supplying our light energy harvesting modules. Epishine’s organic solar cells are perfectly optimised for the ERS Eco sensors with their market-leading performance in indoor light conditions,” says Jonas Palmér, Sales and Business Development at Epishine.
“This combination of energy harvesting from indoor light, battery-free operation, and a biodegradable enclosure is an IoT industry first. I believe that we at ELSYS, with ongoing support from Epishine, have developed a truly unique and ground-breaking product,” says David Skånehult, Hardware Engineer at ELSYS.
