Micropelt TE-CORE ThermoHarvesting Power Modules

Micropelt TE-CORE ThermoHarvesting Power Modules

Micropelt TE-CORE thermoharvesting power modules convert locally available waste heat thermoelectrically to indefinite free electric energy as long as the heat flows through the thermogenerator (TEG). The integral power conversion and management circuit steps up the gradient-analog output voltage of the TEG and outputs a fixed voltage (2.4V by default). The harvested energy is buffered in an extendable capacitor and is controlled by a configurable hysteresis. Micropelt TE-CORE thermoharvesting power modules are ideal for applications including wireless sensors, sensor networks, condition monitoring, energy monitoring, and automatic meter reading.

TE-CORE RF Wireless Sensor System

Micropelt TE-CORE RF ThermoHarvesting Wireless Sensor System is a complete thermopowered, self-sufficient wireless sensor node system (WSN). It is based on an energy harvesting module with a power management function, which converts locally available waste heat thermoelectrically to indefinite free electric energy. A wireless sensor module is connected to the TE-CORE RF and is equipped with Texas Instruments (TI) ultra-low power technology (CC2530). A temperature difference of as little as 10ºC between a hot surface and ambient air is enough for the TE-CORE RF to make a temperature measurement and a radio transmission every two seconds. Information about the thermal profile of the heat source, the generated output power, the thermal generator output voltage, the energy storage voltage and battery equivalent are displayed via a USB receiver and PC application software.
