IoT and home automation is booming - the smart thermostatic radiator valve (TRV) market alone is expected to grow by more than 350% from 2019 to 2022. To achieve this, smart TRVs need to blend in seamlessly, turning into invisible helpers that make life more comfortable. With Trinamic's powerful toolkits, smart home and IoT products like radiator valves become smooth, silent, efficient, and practically invisible to the human senses.
Miniaturization and cost reduction have been critical themes behind almost every modern technological revolution. Smart thermostatic radiator valves and home automation are no different. Thanks to Trinamic's tiny TMC2300 stepper motor driver, advanced motion control is now optimized for battery-powered devices. Heat, efficiency, size and noise are no longer issues.
In the past, IoT was mostly viewed as a technological challenge. That's no longer the case. Building your smart thermostatic radiator valve is as easy as 1-2-3 with Trinamic's open-source design. The TMC2300-THERMO-BOB allows you to maximize economic impact, bringing quiet, energy-efficient TRVs with sensorless homing to market in no time, while the TMC2300-EVAL provides quick access to the chip's parameters.
“Our challenge was to optimize our design for low power consumption, low noise and a simplified BOM. Trinamic addressed all three in ways that we did not realize were possible.” William Bubenicek, CEO of ConnectM
Driven by miniaturization, daily life is becoming increasingly automated. Shrinking electronics, however, are just one small piece of the puzzle. As the first company to embed enterprise-grade motion control technology in edge devices like smart thermostatic radiator valves, HVAC systems, automated door locks, cameras, or POS devices, Trinamic helps seamlessly transform digital information into perfect physical motion. Take advantage of increased power, reduced cost, and easy-to-use toolkits that push powerful computing to the most humble edge devices.
The higher the microstep resolution, the smoother the motor, greatly reducing resonance and distortion. This increases the motor's precision, often eliminating the need for a gearbox, while eliminating noise.
No beer gets spilled! Trinamic's advanced motion controllers support leading-edge S-shaped acceleration profiles for super smooth motion.
