Wireless Power and Sensors

Advances in technology continues to deliver us a whole range of new sensors to improve productivity and performance – but often the biggest challenge is not how you can use the sensor but how you can get power to them in the places where you need them. Wireless power now eliminates many of the design constraints and costs associated with the implementation and delivery of power to sensors.

Imaging sensors, GPS sensors, accelerometer sensors and a whole host of others are providing opportunities for the deployment of wireless power solutions.


  • Reliable source of power for sensors in wet, dirty and moving environments
  • Unique option for delivering power to extremities of devices and equipment
  • Reduce cost of cable and labor associated with installing sensor systems
  • Maximize flexibility in deployment and reconfiguration of sensors
  • Provide power through non-metallic substrates without having to drill holes
  • Integrated wireless data module which supports all major Industrial protocols


  • Process Automation
  • Materials handling
  • Agriculture and forestry
  • Marine


Sensor based applications for wireless power have driven much of our core Research and Development over the last two years and, in more cases than not, the application will require us to not only deliver power wirelessly, but data as well. As a result, we have developed an integrated configurable wireless data module — Proxi-Comm — which can support all major Industrial standards including CAN-bus, Ethernet, RS485 and PLC 4-20mA.

Solutions | PowerbyProxi

Having developed a culture of working closely with our customers we have observed some clear patterns emerge in the pain points that wireless power can provide real world solutions for. Technology has delivered us a whole range of new sensors and with that comes the challenge of getting power to the extremities of devices and equipment. These solutions have been designed to provide wireless power for the following applications.


Battery Charging | PowerbyProxi

We have been engaged to look at a number of different application solutions where batteries provide the power, but design constraints limit their effectiveness, including. Re-introducing rechargeable batteries which have previously been eliminated due to design/size constraints associated with mechanical connectors. Wireless power literally breathes new life into batteries and the myriad of applications they operate in on a day to day basis.


Control Systems | PowerbyProxi

Control systems in mission critical applications which are deployed in hostile operating environments have provided most of our industry focus. Even in hostile environments – liquids, contaminants and moving parts will not compromise our ability to deliver power and data wirelessly. PowerbyProxi’s wireless power can provide the most efficient, reliable power connections to your mission critical control systems.
