National Instruments Uses Perpetuum’s Vibration Energy Harvester to Power Wireless Measurement System

National Instruments has adopted Perpetuum’s vibration energy harvester technology to power its NI WSN-3226 measurement system.

Vibration energy harvester technology

The wireless measurement system is made for wireless sensing, measurement and monitoring in industrial settings.

Nick Butler, National Instruments’ Product Marketing Manager for Wireless Sensor Networks, said that the vibration energy harvesters from Perpetuum provide a suitable solution to battery replacement for the company’s wireless sensor network nodes.

The harvesters may seem to be more expensive when compared to a battery; however, they can be inexpensive than the price of replacing batteries in a typical industrial facility.

National Instruments has designed the wireless sensor network for low power. It has an operational power of 300 mW. This means that nodes can function on their own with internal 4AA batteries for up to three years or can operate for an indefinite period of time with energy harvesting solutions.
