Watch this demo made by our Field Application Engineer – Sarah Houtain – to see how energy can be harvested using a magnetic core as a harvester
Working together, e-peas and TCT have been able to demonstrate energy harvesting based on inductance. The set up utilizes a compact TCT current generator, plus an e-peas AEM30940 PMIC. Through induction, the current generator extracts energy from an AC electrical cable. The AEM30940 (and accompanying rectifier circuitry) then converts this into DC current to power humidity, temperature and light sensor devices, as well as a wireless transceiver.
