Powering Industrial Smart Devices from Movement
What is Energy harvesting
Kinetic energy harvesting is a process that converts motion into electrical energy, which can be used to power small and low-energy electronics. Energy harvesters are devices that convert kinetic energy from the environment, such as ocean waves, machinery vibration, human motion, and vehicle movement, into electricity. The harvested energy is then stored for use by small, wireless autonomous devices, like those used in wearable electronics, condition monitoring, and wireless sensor networks.
What are the benefits
Kinetic energy harvesting is an innovative way to generate electricity from the environment and reduce the need for batteries or other power sources. It is the perfect solution for powering small devices that require low amounts of energy. Here are some benefits:
Kinetic energy harvesting devices can be easily retrofitted into existing systems, making them a cost-effective solution for generating electricity
Kinetic energy harvesting devices are highly reliable and can operate in harsh environments and at extreme temperatures.
Kinetic energy harvesting devices are safe to use and do not pose any risk of explosion, fire or chemical leakage.
Kinetic energy harvesting devices do not require any hard wiring, which reduces the cost of installation and maintenance.
Kinetic energy harvesting devices can have an operational life of more than 10 years, which means they can operate for the life of most equipment without the need for maintenance or replacement.
Unlike batteries, kinetic energy harvesting devices do not require any chemical disposal and are easily recycled, making them an eco-friendly solution for powering devices.
Kinetic energy harvesting devices are perfect for deployment in dangerous and inaccessible sites where it is difficult to replace batteries or other power sources.
