#Energy Harvesting & Wireless Sensor Networks Drive Industrial Applications

The industrial sector is keen on using electronics for greater capabilities and higher efficiencies and productivity. Smaller and smarter sensors, ultra-low-power IC devices, energy harvesting performance advances, and better wireless sensor network protocols are spurring this trend. Related Articles Power Your Wireless Sensors For 40 Years Expect More Energy Harvesting To Power Wireless Sensors In 2013 Industrial Environments Require Rugged Design There are many rotating, shaking, and vibrating machines and structures in industrial environments where physical motions, thermal and RF emissions, and magnetic photo-optic properties can produce electrical output signals. In a typical energy harvesting system, energy is generated from motion, a thermal source, magnetic activity, or a photovoltaic source. The energy is then captured, stored and managed, and fed to a sensor and ...
