TE-CORE/RF

Thermoharvesting Wireless Sensor

TE-CORE/RF

TE-CORE/RF is a fully functional and self-powered wireless sensor node, designed for evaluation and prototyping. It measures and transmits temperature and voltage data in a 2/sec duty cycle for a virtually unlimited amount of time – without batteries. All power needed for its operation is harvested from excess or waste heat. Heat is taken from the surface the device is mounted or magnetically attached to. Thermoelectric conversion is done by a single Micropelt TGP thermogenerator device.
