Evolving from a company established to produce MEMS-based energy harvesters, Micropelt incorporated its tiny thermogenerators into a self-powered iTRV thermostatic radiator valve actuator. Using the temperature difference between the radiator and the ambient room temperature to provide electrical energy, other circuitry provides power management including energy storage to drive an actuator as well as provide […]
In a volatile market and with rapidly developing technology, future expectations can range widely. This is certainly true for energy harvesting today. In 2012, one report forecast, “The global market is expected to reach $1894.87 million by 2017 at an estimated CAGR of 24.31%.” A year later another report projected, “Energy harvesting market worth $4.2 […]
Transforming the mechanical input energy required to actuate the switch into electrical energy, which is stored and then transmitted, allows users to mount CHERRY Industrial Solutions’ switch without adding wires. The energy harvesting wireless RF switch can be operated with the frequencies 868 MHz, 915 MHz and 2.4 GHz. For transmitting the switching information, a […]
Wireless transmitters mounted in remote locations can provide valuable information on a variety of topics – until their battery power decreases below a critical threshold. Energy harvesting companies like Perpetuum can extend the useful life of these applications when the right conditions are present. With its Rosemount 3051S Wireless Pressure Transmitter, Emerson Process Management has […]
