- Brad Rake knew the prospects for testing and funding his wireless invention were good when he got a higher-up from the U.S. Air Force
to discuss the technology at length during a cold call earlier this year.
Various consultants assured Rake, the founder and principal of upstart Eske......

ZeroWire transmits data that controls switches over an existing power line. For years, this has been done on AC circuits, which is not as challenging, Rake says. What Esker has done is to develop this concept using low voltage current, or DC systems, which is much more challenging and sensitive to interference.

and they have to shut it down," Rake says. "By eliminating a lot of wires, you are eliminating potential causes of failure. As it is right now, it takes a long time to go through this point-to-point testing.
"If you can transmit over the power line, you aren't carrying a signal that can be interfered with," Rake says of ZeroWire. "In the power BUS system, you just check the modules and m......Full article >>>
Rake has a patent pending fore ZeroWire. While conducting a patent search, he says he didn't find anyone that has come up with anything that compares with the technology. But, that doesn't mean he hasn't encountered some resistance along the way.
"What I find with new technology, the most common thing you always hear once you get inside the engineering department is that ......Full article >>>
