Wireless and sustainable power sources for Industrial IoT applications
ReVibe Energy was founded to power the Industrial Internet of Things in a reliable, flexible and sustainable way, which has been a significant challenge in the past. Through a unique vibration energy harvesting technology, ReVibe’s products offer its customers the possibility to convert the vibrations that exist in most industrial environments to electricity to fully power their wireless sensors and monitoring systems.
As part of the EIT Crisis Response Initiative, EIT RawMaterials supports ReVibe Energy start-up with Booster funding to accelerate business in the post-crisis economy. The EIT RawMaterials Booster Call in response to the COVID-19 crisis mobilised EUR 9.8 million to provide targeted support to 60 high-impact and growth potential start-ups, scale-ups and SMEs during the crisis.
Measure and analyse vibrations with extreme precision
Revibe Energy AB is an excellent example of collaboration between education, research and industry making an impact in the mining industry. Started by young students graduating from Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship and based on innovation from Saab, an aerospace manufacturer, ReVibe provides an energy harvesting device enabling remote and wireless surveillance and monitoring of critical parts in machines used in mining.
EIT RawMaterials Booster funding will help ReVibe Energy accelerate expansion of the ReLog product. The company has recently successfully secured an investment round and shows traction in a growing market.

In December 2019, ReVibe Energy officially launched the ReLog vibration data logger. The EIT RawMaterials Booster funding will help the team adapt to the COVID-19 crisis and accelerate the new product to the market.
The ReLog has been designed with harsh environments in mind. With an IP67 rating and testing following MIL specs, the ReLog will be a reliable partner in all environments. The new product has an extensive battery life and memory capacity. It is capable of measuring for up to 72 hours when sampling at 25 kHz in 3 directions and several weeks when using trigger levels or using a lower sampling rate. Moreover, the new data log offers high precision and accuracy with a low noise level of less than 6mg across the bandwidth and 16-bit resolution.
Through the ReLog, the Swedish start-up offers customers a vibration and shock data logger with long battery life, high sampling rate and large onboard memory. This is valuable for any company that uses evaluation and monitoring of vibrations as a key indicator of how their products or assets are performing at any given time.
ReVibe Energy offers state-of-the-art vibration measurements for the mining industry.
In particular, ReVibe is offering customers within the mining industry a state-of-the-art instrument of the highest quality when it comes to precision in vibration measurements. Such a device gives our customers, both OEMs and mining operators, the possibility to collect more accurate information about their mining equipment and other assets and evaluate how they perform over time. This provides insight on how the assets should be maintained and further developed in both the product development process and in-process operation.
