Piezoelectric Energy Harvester – Mide Technology

Converts normally wasted mechanical energy in the form of vibrations into usable electrical energy. It uses the piezoelectric effect to generate energy from Vibrations.

Vibration Energy Harvesting With Piezoelectrics

Some sources are Machinery in Oil and Gas drilling to refining. Machines in Industry and Manufacturing. Wind, Tide, streams also can be harnesses with small fixtures, jigs or devices for vibration sensor arrays.

Applications - Wireless Sensors and small instruments need a way to recharge their lithium cells or even supercaps. Using solar and vibration harvesting, enough power can be derived to power efficient electronics. Recharge small computers and tablets.
