Energy Harvesting Evaluation Kit V1.4
This development kit consists of a simple desktop shaker with a suitable power amplifier unit, several MFC generator cantilevers (PEH) and three electronic modules with different harvesting and conditioning circuits. It enables scientists with mechanical and electrical engineering background to study the relations between mechanical input parameters and electrical outputs.
The excitation for the harvester can be applied either using an internal sine wave generator or alternatively, a sampled signal from a real environment supplied to the external source input. The MFCs cantilevers are comprised of FR4 glass fiber composite material.
Please read the EH-Kit V1.4 manual and watch the tutorial for further information.
Simple LED Cantilever Demonstrator
A simple energy harvester demonstrator comprised of a glass fiber beam, and one M8528P2 MFC for harvesting energy by shaking the unit. The demonstrator has an integrated rectifier with three LEDs, which will light up one by one depending on the frequency and the amount of acceleration one can induce by shaking the unit.
