IoT devices must finely balance data quality/quantity and battery lifetime, especially in hard-to-reach applications. Furthermore, the cost of ownership of IoT solutions increases due to the manpower and maintenance required.
TEGnology has developed a device that converts the heat difference between a machine or pipe and its environment into a regulated voltage relevant for most available Industrial IoT devices. Having no moving parts and a delicate design, the device can endure decades worth of vibrations, moisture, explosive gasses and machine cleaning processes.
Harvesting additional energy to IoT solutions not only reduces the need for batteries and external power sources, but also enables better data generation and transmission, and provides a basis for adding new functionalities to existing devices, e.g. edge computing, that reduces redundancy and occupation of bandwidth of the Cloud. The technology is also adapted for wearable devices.
