Intelligent Energy Harvester Power module for smart wireless transmitters

08 October 2012

Perpetuum, in partnership with Emerson Rosemount, has created an Intelligent Energy Harvester power module option for use with Emerson Rosemount 3051S Smart Wireless transmitters.

The module offers a compact power option which has the same form factor as the Emerson battery pack, enabling the Emerson Rosemount 3051S to be powered by Vibration Energy Harvesters (also known as Vibration Energy Scavengers) eliminating the cost and logistical challenges associated with battery changes.

Fast data capture rates or large amounts of collected data can result in the need change batteries in deployed wireless sensor nodes long before the useful life cycle of the transmitter is achieved. This can result in losses in productivity, money, time and human resources as well as un-optimised maintenance logistics associated with scheduling, work order generation, stocking and hazardous material disposal.

The Vibration Energy Harvesting power option can help end users reduce the time between battery changes to over 10 years.

Perpetuum’s Intelligent Power Module has been designed to be compatible with other forms of energy harvesting when they become available and qualified for use.
