Solar Powered IoT solution

The solar box, Arc-solar, 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 more than an AAA battery. 

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

Feature

High performance

with the specialized developing solar power management system, there is more 40% PV power into the battery.

UV & Water resistance

Using the shell of durable PC material and Flexwave's patented waveguide packaging technology to our Arc-solar box, it is capital of waterproof and UV resistance. It's not yellowing after being at outside for a long time.

10 years lifetime

Lifetime is up to ten years. Our Arc-solar box sustainably provides PV power to collect data without interrupted.

No maintenance

Because of the excellent solar power management system and weatherability, no maintenance should be paid.

Plug & play

For tons of sensors to set in a big field, plug and play must be the most convenient installation.

Application

Wildfire detection

Wildfire detectors 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 a 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. 

Oil/gas sensors 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.
