UBITO’s Breakthrough in Energy Harvesting

1_ubito_milestone_np

UBITO’s latest breakthrough Wiegand energy harvester opens new windows to the Internet of Things. With the development of an exciting new Wiegand Harvester, Weigand technology (which collects energy from movements of an external magnetic field) can now be positioned beside established energy harvesting techniques such as solar, piezo, or thermos-electrics as an energy source for sensor nodes in the emerging Internet of Things (also known as Industry 4.0).

With energy harvesting as the main goal, UBITO aimed at improving the energy output from Wiegand devices and established the possibility of self-powered sensors that could detect and transmit data wirelessly to an IoT network. The new “Wiegand Harvester” generates over 50 times more energy that commercial Wiegand sensors making it possible to consider self-sufficient sensors communicating wirelessly over a significant distance .
