Power Probe Replaces Batteries

Promising more power and infinite life to industrial sensors, the TE-Power PROBE commercial energy harvester allegedly can outperform primary batteries as an energy source for wireless applications. The TE-Power PROBE can fully replace or significantly extend the life of batteries in WirelessHART, ISA100, and similar transmitters. Mounting the device to a the hot side of +20°C above ambient results in a milliWatt net output, equal to about three AA cells per year. The cylindrical component measures 52 mm in diameter by 80 mm in length and connects to the heat source via a threaded copper thermal input pin.
