PULSCE: Pulsating Cells for Wireless Sensor Nodes
- Resource URL:
- Description of Startup:
PULSCE proposes vibration powered generators suitable to replace batteries.
An alternative to electrochemical cells is mandatory to supply wireless sensor nodes in harsh environments or inaccessible places. Our pulsation cells allow perpetual power supply of wireless networked objects from ambient mechanical energy.
The developed technology, based on piezoelectric nonlinear oscillators and low-loss AC-DC converters, offers energy recovery over a large vibration frequency range [1Hz – 100Hz] and provides regulated output voltage.
