KCF Technologies Wins Silver Best of Sensors Expo Award
June 11, 2008
KCF Technologies Wireless Sensor Kit (WSK100) demonstrates self powered wireless sensors as a practical solution for industrial monitoring. Freely available vibration energy is captured and used as the only power source. This enables designers of wireless sensor networks to achieve the reduced installation and life cycle costs promised by wireless sensors. The Sensors “Best of Sensors Expo” awards honored the most exciting new products that were on display at the Sensors Expo & Conference, which took place at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. All entries were judged on the basis of potential impact, application, distinctiveness, timeliness, and availability.
This panel of judges were comprised of the magazine’s editorial staff, members of the editorial advisory board, and industry experts including Melanie Martella, executive editor of Sensors; Deborah Lickness, John Deere; and Ed Ramsden, a member ofSensors' editorial advisory board and sensor industry veteran.
“The awards program recognizes cutting-edge solutions in the sensors marketplace,” said Martella. “ All of the nominations demonstrated exceptional innovation, integration, and ease-of-use. We believe this year’s winners will be leaders in the sensors marketplace and offer our congratulations to the companies recognized.”
