True Grid Independence: Robust Energy Harvesting System for Wireless Sensors Uses Piezoelectric Energy Harvesting Power Supply and Li-Poly Batteries with Shunt Charger

Posted By : ES Admin
There is an emerging and potentially large market for wireless sensors. By their very nature, wireless sensors are chosen for use in inaccessible places, or for applications that require large numbers of sensors—too many to easily hardwire to a data network. In most cases, it is impractical for these systems to run off primary batteries.
For example, a sensor for monitoring the temperature of meat as it is shipped would need to be mounted in a tamperproof way. Or, HVAC sensors that are mounted on every source of conditioned air would be far too distributed to feasibly use batteries. In these applications, energy harvesting can solve the problem of providing power without primary batteries.
