Since its inception in 2006, WaveOn has worked with numerous companies such as Whirlpool, Electrolux, Kohler Plumbing, and Ecolab to incorporate WaveOn proprietary capacitive sensing technology into various industrial and consumer products. In 2009, WaveOn began work on its own consumer product - an affordable handheld oil testing device. Thus, the LUBRICHECK Oil Tester was born. The Lubricheck instantly analyzes the condition of the oil in a gas or diesel engine. It can also warn the user of impending engine problems. Early in 2011, Lubricheck was successfully funded on Kickstarter.com. Shortly after being introduced to the market in 2013, the Lubricheck earned for WaveOn Technologies the 2012 Innovator of the Year Award from Maintenance Technology Magazine..
