Freevolt turns radio waves into power for IoT devices
Telecoms.com | 30 september 2015
PA’s Frazer Bennett, technology expert, is quoted in an article in Telecoms.com where he explains PA’s collaboration with Drayson Technologies.
The article explains that a new technology, Freevolt, has allowed devices to stay connected to the Internet of Things despite having no visible means of support. Freevolt takes energy from radio frequency waves to power small devices and is believed to be the first technology of its kind.
PA worked with Drayson Technologies to co-developing Freevolt's first commercial application, the CleanSpace Tag air sensor. The tags are currently being manufactured in the UK and became available for purchase on September 30th.

The article goes on to explain that the CleanSpace Tag has a small, lightweight design and is scalable and suitable for a range of uses, from the low-power Internet of Things, such as wearables, sensors and beacons, to built environments.
Frazer comments: “We were impressed with the Freevolt technology and its wide applicability to power the internet of things and look forward to continuing the collaboration.”
