New transmitter enables energizing of battery-less IoT sensors and aggregates sensor data to the cloud, further expanding wireless power network infrastructure for asset tracking, supply chain, retail, vertical farming and industrial applications
Energous Corporation (NASDAQ: WATT), a leading developer of RF-based intelligent wireless power networks, today announced the launch of a new 2 Watt conducted power transmitter, which addresses the growing power demands from the rapidly expanding IoT ecosystem across supply chain, logistics, retail, industrial and agricultural industries. The 2W PowerBridge transmitter doubles the energizing capability of Energous’ 1W transmitter currently deployed in the field, continuing towards Energous’ goal of freeing IoT devices from the constraints of replaceable batteries and charging cords and extending power and range.

The number of IoT devices continues to expand, especially in industrial, commercial, and residential spaces. Energous’ 2W PowerBridge helps reduce the need for replaceable batteries and charging cables, and is capable of powering IoT devices in these settings at distance and with reduced need for maintenance or human intervention, enabling a more automated workflow and deployment of Active Energy Wireless Power Networks.
“Our new 2W PowerBridge represents our continued commitment to advancing and improving our Wireless Power Networks infrastructure to meet the power demands of today’s IoT deployments. This reinforces our leadership in the development of Active Energy Wireless Power Networks,” said Cesar Johnston, CEO of Energous. “As the IoT ecosystem continues to grow, this transmitter will enable RF-based wireless power to provide better RF coverage and power levels. Customers will now have multiple options to optimize their networks by combining our 1W and 2W PowerBridges.”
Energous PowerBridges are designed to drive transformation across the entire IoT ecosystem. These devices not only have the capability of wirelessly charging multiple devices simultaneously from a distance using RF-based wireless power, but they can also function as data links for connected IoT devices. This enables them to communicate valuable data and insights back to the cloud.
The 2W PowerBridge will be available for testing via our 2W Evaluation Kit by the end of Q2 2023.
