Company Description

XARION Laser Acoustics is a provider of unique, laser-based acoustic sensors. The membrane-free optical microphone uses an IP-protected principle of operation: it detects sound based on its ability to change the speed of light. Since no mechanically movable or deformable parts are involved in this approach, the sensor comes with a linear frequency response free from mechanical resonances. The microphone shows an unprecedented frequency bandwidth exceeding state of the art solutions by a factor of ten.

Microtronics enables your successful IoT and M2M business. The coordinated end-to-end system includes hardware, software and service. The modular toolbox can be individually adapted to the requirements of the respective application. The maturity of the technology has already been proven in over 300 realized projects in 80 countries.

From security and device management to connectivity management, a solid basis of functionalities is provided. The rapidM2M Studio facilitates development and significantly reduces time-to-market. The IoT platform provides analytics, graphics, alerting and management functions, among others.

IoT Solutions

For the detection of sound waves, conventional microphones use membranes or other moving parts as intermediaries between the incoming acoustic and the resulting electrical quantity. For acoustic ultrasound sensors based on piezoelectric crystals, the approach is similar: the acoustic wave mechanically deforms the crystal. In contrast, the patented idea behind XARION’s Optical Microphone is to exploit another, completely different property of sound: the fact that sound changes the speed of light! In a rigid Fabry-Pérot laser interferometer consisting of two miniaturized mirrors, sound pressure changes the refractive index of the air. This alters the optical wavelength and the light transmission which consequently leads to the respective electrical signal. In contrast to conventional microphones, the Optical Microphone is the world's first microphone without any moving parts. No mechanically movable or physically deformable parts are involved. By consequence, the sensors exhibit a compelling frequency bandwidth, free from mechanical resonances. The sensor principle is highly sensitive. In fact, refractive index changes below 10-14 can be detected with this technology. This corresponds to pressure changes as small as 1 ?Pa.

With almost a billion devices currently connected to control networks in industrial settings, application designers are seeking an effective, safe and simple migration path to the IIoT. Echelon’s IzoT platform and new FT 6050 SoC let companies build IIoT solutions that interoperate with existing devices while also supporting new IP-enabled ones—which reduces their SKU counts, broadens application support and lets them get their products to market more quickly and safely. The multiprotocol IzoT software running on the FT 6050 SoC provides designers a fast, low-risk path to market for IIoT products that are reliable and both backward- and forward-compatible with the full range of communications, transport and control networking standards. As an example, designers can use the IzoT-enabled FT 6050 to create and deploy building automation applications that simultaneously support BACnet, LonWorks and IP-enabled devices.
Pan and Zoom N3N is famous for its patented pan and zoom technology which is in use throughout their entire product line. Their technology makes it possible for users to quickly identify problems and then zoom in directly on the route cause. Save Time and Money With Pan and Zoom built on-top of their mapping, monitoring, detection and predictive software, users are able to save significant amounts of time and money locating and preventing issues.
For companies in industries like field service and manufacturing, it’s mission-critical that a large set of remote workers have their hands free while they do their jobs. APX Labs help companies' employees where it matters the most. Wearable solutions for complex assembly, maintenance, material handling and field service. Everything your employees' hands-on workforce needs, in-view, immediate, and right where work gets done. APX Labs develops Skylight Enterprise software for smart glasses and smart watches. With Skylight employees can always get in-view instructions, diagrams and help, make see-what-I-see video calls to remote experts, capture images, video, audio and more hands-free and monitor live data feeds from systems, tools and machines.
Their Dynamic Airflow Balancing system claims to be an innovative approach to HVAC zone controls. Leveraging IoT design philosophy and the power of cloud computing, the 75F solution achieves what was once thought to be only theoretically possible - continuouscommissioning or perfect air balancing.

In the next 20 years, the urban population will grow from 3.5 billion to 5 billion people. Industries, cities and authorities need to find ways to manage the impact of this increase, and new solutions are urgently needed because natural resources are finite. Advancing technologies may provide the solution to problems arising from rapid urban population growth, and they may even improve the quality of life for citizens. However, technology is currently used as a passive tool, and it lacks the built-in intelligence needed for responding to fast-changing events and scenarios. At Worldsensing, they believe technology must be able to function intelligently. The only way forward is through the use of ‘Smart Technology’ solutions that provide high-quality technology, sustainability, efficiency and design. A solution based on Smart Technologies can, for instance, prevent disasters, make predictions, interpret data and much more. It is scalable, modular and able to adapt to different circumstances and scenarios. Worldsensing aims to design sustainable and market-orientated solutions that embrace Smart Technology. they offer deploy-and-forget, application-tailored, end-to-end solutions for the industrial internet. Their designs for machine-to-machine systems are reliable, robust, small, light and affordable.
