Wireless, Battery-less Sensor Systems

Transense develops and markets patent-protected sensor systems for measuring torque, temperature and pressure, wirelessly and without the need for batteries, using Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology.

As no batteries or wires are required, the sensors can be used in applications that traditional sensors cannot, such as on rotating shafts or in environments where access to the sensors is difficult or potentially hazardous.

Transense is developing the technology in conjunction with partners including McLaren Electronic Systems and General Motors, as well as via two wholly owned divisions, IntelliSAW and Translogik, targeting the high growth global electrical Smart Grid applications market and the transport industry respectively.

The Benefits of SAW Technology

SAW devices, as deployed by Transense, are realised as crystalline quartz substrates (dies) typically 6 x 4 mm by 350 microns thick. On each die up to 3 resonators, with natural frequencies around 433MHz, are laid down in thin film aluminium, using photo-lithographic techniques. Each resonator comprises a central inter-digitated transducer (IDT) with a series of reflecting strips distributed on either side. Overall resonator dimensions are 2 to 3 mm long x 0.3 to 0.4 mm wide. The spacing between individual features in the IDT and reflectors is of the order of 2 microns so you need a microscope to resolve the fine detail. SAW resonators respond to both mechanical and thermal strain by changing their natural frequency of vibration..

Helping the World's environment

  • Wind energy is one of several applications of Transense's patented technology that will have a positive impact on the world’s environment.
  • As Transense's passive SAW technology doesn’t require batteries there are no potentially harmful disposal issues.
  • By allowing for more efficient car engines and power grids it has the potential to reduce carbon emissions.
  • Maximising tyre life & performance reduces the demand for fuel as well as rubber for replacement tyres.

Tech One Electronics and IntelliSAW announce representative agreement for South Eastern US market


Transense Technologies plc ("Transense") (AIM: TRT), the provider of sensor systems for the transportation and industrial markets, is pleased to announce that its trading divison, IntelliSAW, has entered into an exclusive representative agreement with Tech One Electronics of Pompano Beach, Florida.

As part of this agreement Tech One will provide market coverage in the South East US territory for IntelliSAW, an area that is populated with leading US utilities and top OEM's of electrical switchgear, both key customers of IntelliSAW's solution which provides an innovative wireless/passive temperature monitoring system for critical assets in the electric power transmission and distribution network.

Tech One is a well established electronics components and systems representative comprised of a team of professionals who have been providing technical sales and support services in the region for over 30 years.

Access to IntelliSAW's unique electrical switchgear temperature monitoring system will allow Tech One to expand its portfolio of products and services into the Smart Grid arena where IntelliSAW's technology provides real-time, continuous monitoring of mission-critical electric power switchgear.

IntelliSAW's proprietary solution is wireless and does not require any power to the sensors affording ease of installation and system commissioning while avoiding introducing any arcing or flashover concerns. Moreover the IntelliSAW system outputs data directly onto existing communication networks using standard protocols allowing for instantaneous monitoring and control.

Tom Pughe, President and Founder of Tech One, commented "Tech One is pleased to add IntelliSAW's innovative systems to its portfolio of solutions. We have seen for some time now the market pull for a temperature monitoring solution for critical assets in the Smart Grid space and clearly see where the advanced technology of the IntelliSAW system provides an optimal alternative to other approaches in the market today. The flexible architecture and ease of deployment of the IntelliSAW system serves to add to the scalability of its application."

Graham Storey, CEO of Transense, commented, "We continue to make good progress in building a global distribution network for IntelliSAW. With agreements already in place within the key emerging markets of Brazil, South America and Taiwan, this is our first move into the more mature North American market. The US is the world's largest single market for switchgear monitoring and one that will provide another significant opportunity for IntelliSAW."

About Tech One

Tech One Electronics is a limited liability corporation founded March 2007 and is comprised of relationship-focused professionals with a history of customer- and supplier-based experience since 1980. The Tech One team is led by Tom Pughe, based in southeast Florida with offices throughout the state.
