Technology

Wireless Power Share

We use the NFC field that every smartphone builds up not only for communication and thus to authenticate the user, but also tap into the energy of the field with a completely new chip here.

  • This energy is then used to drive an actuator that opens our lock via intelligent kinematics
  • Thus, the user only has to follow the instructions on his smartphone, bring the phone close to the lock and have the access token to open the lock

Building on SMA technology, we use shape memory materials combined with smart kinematics to make locking systems simpler. The SMA material - a nickel-titanium alloy in wire form - is shortened by energising it.

  • The use of shape memory alloys (SMA) originates from the medical field and has been used there for many decades for a variety of applications, e.g. stents
  • SMA are special metals that change their shape or shorten when exposed to heat induced by electricity; when cooled, the material expands again and returns to its original shape
  • Shape memory alloys have a specific power density that is up to 1,000 times higher than that of piezo or magnetic actuators and have a service life of 100,000 to several million cycles
