Zero battery
zero maintainance.

ONiO.zero is an ultra-low-power wireless MCU that uses energy harvesting technology. This means that the ONiO.zero solely operates on energy from its surroundings. No coincell, no supercap, no lithium, no battery at all - but still a ton of power.

Battery based solutions come with the inevitable caveat of battery replacement, which translates to an incremental cost, throughout their ownership. ONiO.zero circumvents this pain point and slashes the cost of ownership. It can be used to power sensors and devices for years, without having to spare a thought about maintenance - deploy and forget.

Power your application the way you want.

ONiO.zero is self-powered and supports a wide range of power sources from multi-frequency RF bands supporting GSM and ISM to optional external sources like solar, piezoelectric, thermal and voltaic cells.

 
 
 
 

Exponentially opening up the potential for new applications.

Having no battery means fewer components and a smaller design, which can easily be integrated into a wide range of solutions - be it fabrics, jewellery, watches, wearable medical devices, livestock or building sensors. More importantly, this makes for a cleaner, more eco-friendly solution.
