Company Profile (TZ Limited)
For a decade, TZ has been at the forefront of IOT research and development. TZ's award winning IOT locks and fasteners use proprietary Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) technology and are therefore lighter, smaller and consume significantly less energy than traditional solenoid and DC motor based devices.
TZ's device intelligence is derived from an embedded system that consists of a microprocessor, energy optimization and integrated sensors that can monitor the environment around the device and report environmental status via the Internet. Networks of TZ Devices underpin a variety of IOT Applications and have been deployed in aerospace, military, logistics, IT and automotive applications.
