Marlow Industries, has released the EverGen line of products that includes a variety of thermoelectric-based energy harvesting devices, which provides customers with a cost-effective power solution without the need for maintenance for wireless sensor applications.
The thermal energy harvesters provided by Marlow drive wireless sensors in the absence of a battery thus ensuring minimization of replacement and maintenance costs. These harvesters are eco-friendly as they recycle waste heat in order to provide power to actuators, sensors, valve solenoids and other tiny devices.
There is an increased demand from buildings for advanced lighting, heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems (HVAC), it is important to have intelligent designs to ensure energy and cost-savings. Marlow’s range includes three energy harvesting products that will help suit a large number of environmental conditions.
The EverGen Liquid-to-Air harvests the heat energy between ambient air and a high temperature fluid stream through natural convection in order to convert to electrical power.
The EverGen Liquid-to-Liquid harvests heat energy between a lower and a higher temperature fluid stream in order to convert to electrical power. The EverGen Solid-to-Air harvests heat energy between ambient air and a higher temperature solid surface in order to convert to electric power.
EverGen thermoelectric energy harvesters from Marlow are commercially available.
