Advanced Cerametrics Inc. (ACI) announced the availability of the new Harvestor-III line of power modules that capture mechanical vibration energy from the environment to provide perpetual electric power for microcircuit applications. ACI’s innovative energy Harvestors can provide continuous voltage output to replace or augment battery power in many applications where wired power is unavailable, inconvenient, or costly. This unique product combines the company’s patented piezoelectric fiber composites (PFCs), with its new best-in-class highly efficient EH1000 energy management circuitry to power sensors, wireless transponders and other low-power applications.
With performance improvement including faster and higher power availability, Harvestor-III power modules have reset ACI’s market-leading high performance standard for efficiently harvesting ambient mechanical energy. The Harvestor-III line offers a selection of models and configurations to provide perpetual energy from different ambient vibration environments, and for a host of applications and power needs. With the release of this product line, ACI has made available energy harvesting, power conditioning, power storage and regulated DC output in a compact, convenient, light weight and mountable enclosure.
