ARC- Solar box

Solar Powered IoT solution

The solar box, ARC, is designed for LPWAN IoT device with no angle limitation that we can collect scattered light very efficiently. In a sunny day, the power we provide is equal to an AAA battery. 

Just like Iron man’s power source ARC reactor, Flexwave’s ARC is powering the IoT device. The lifetime is 10 years so that we can help companies to save huge maintenance cost on battery replacement.

Here is more information:

* Size: 15 x 10 x 6 cm3
* Waterproof, UV resist
* 4.2V output with booster IC
* Rechargeable battery IC controller
* Provide 2 Wh (flat) and 1 Wh (vertically) power in one sunny day (@ California)
* 10 years lifetime

Application- wildfire detection

Wildfire detector can detect the abnormal temperature and send an alarm via Sigfox with GPS location information for the earliest control of the fire. Flexwave’s solution is effective, easy to use, and power sustainable for 10 years.

Forest has lots of shadows that the performance of traditional solar panel is significantly reduced, Flexwave’s ARC can solve this problem. We can provide 10 years power by continuous harvesting the ambient light with LPWAN system. 

Application- oil/gas leakage detection

Oil/gas sensor can detect the leakage on the pipeline with suitable sensors. The alarm will be sent via Sigfox with GPS location information for the earliest control of the leakage. Flexwave’s solution is effective, easy to use, and power sustainable for 10 years. For the traditional solar panel, the dust coverage will cut off the power generation. We can avoid this problem by our great vertical power performance that the dust is not able to heavily cover the surface due to the gravity of the vertical installation.
