Denis Pasero joined Ilika Technologies in 2008, as a scientist specializing in battery technology, to manage commercial lithium ion projects. He became part of the Ilika team to apply his strong academic knowledge to commercial applications and saw the potential to be part of the development and success story of an enterprising smaller company with exciting technology and novel product ideas. Today, as Product Commercialization Manager, Denis interfaces between customers and technical teams.
This presentation will describe recent developments in the area of miniaturisation of Industrial IoT wireless sensing nodes for predictive maintenance and remote monitoring. A review of the components integrated in these autonomous devices will be given, with emphasis on the power elements. The requirement of the energy storage element will be discussed in terms of long life (desire to avoid changing batteries regularly and create truly perpetual solutions), size (need for smaller non-obtrusive devices), energy density (to provide to ever increasing functionality) and operating temperature. A description on how solid state batteries can meet these requirements will be provided.
