COMPOSITION took part at APEC 2018, the world’s largest power electronics annual conference

At the Energy Harvesting Industry session at APEC 2018 (the world’s largest power electronics conference) in San Antonio, USA, Tyndall National Institute described the activities relating to the COMPOSITION use cases at Boston Scientific Limited Clonmel Ireland. These were given as Factories of the Future/Industry 4.0 examples of energy and resource optimisation, where wireless sensors can be retrofitted on or near equipment and infrastructure for conditional monitoring of reflow ovens and asset tracking of high value component reels and test fixtures. Asset tracking assists in recovering material at short notice for production as well as avoiding misplacement. Conditional monitoring enables anomalies in equipment behaviour to be detected to initiate predictive maintenance, thus reducing downtime and related costs. In particular, Tyndall is focusing on developing energy harvesting power solutions that will extend battery life, and ultimately eliminate the need for battery replacement in these sensors.
