Interoperability of High Power Vibration Energy Harvesting with Low Power Wireless Sensor Networks



Chicago, IL - Perpetuum Ltd., of Southampton, UK and Dust Networks® of Hayward, California, have demonstrated using the GE Bently Nevada Insight. Mesh that energy harvesting-powered wireless sensor networks are a practical reality even in the most demanding applications. Industrial condition monitoring systems can have high volume data transmission requirements and the consequent impact on power budgets is significant. However, the combination of Dust Networks’ low power SmartMesh® WSN products with High Power Vibration Energy Harvesters from Perpetuum, delivers an effective solution to meet market needs, as demonstrated this week at the Sensors Expo conference in Chicago, Illinois.


“The proven performance of Perpetuum Vibration Energy Harvesters makes them an excellent choice for powering WSNs,” said Steve Turley, CEO of Perpetuum. “With their robust construction and high efficiencies, Perpetuum harvesters are ideally suited to industrial condition monitoring applications and allow end users to achieve economic and flexible WSN deployments without concern for battery life. Their ability to power the Dust Networks WSNs from even very smooth running machinery is critical to successful deployment. “The combination of our low power SmartMesh products and Perpetuum’s energy harvesting technology creates a system that can run indefinitely without maintenance, which further enhances the ROI of WSN solutions”, added Joy Weiss, President and CEO of Dust Networks.
