The Challenge
Industrial facilities, municipalities, hospitals and universities nationwide depend upon steam carried through pipes to heat their buildings. Unfortunately, the reliability of steam systems also leads to them being forgotten or poorly maintained until it’s too late, resulting in uninsulated distribution components and faulty steam traps (leaks) that can lose hundreds or even thousands of dollars a day in wasted energy. That’s why Embedded Energy Technology (EET) teamed up with Thermaxx Jackets to create a next-generation solution for steam pipe insulation. They wanted to develop a product that not only insulated pipes, but also used technology monitor the system for leaks and heat loss. Ideally this solution would install in minutes, have no wires, and avoid the need for costly construction.
The Solution
Looking for a faster way to market, EET researched several embedded, wireless hardware products before selecting Synapse’s SNAP-based RF modules. The 900 Mhz modules were the perfect choice as they were already FCC certified and ideal for signal strength underground (the most common location of steam pipes).

Also, the Synapse Portal software development tool made it easy to jumpstart their development of the solution. The software was robust enough to support out-of-the-box prototyping, but also flexible enough for quick customization within the final product. And any future system updates could be executed over the air.
Quantitative Benefit
  • Saved six months of development time
  • FCC Certified
