MicroGen's patented BOLT(tm) products are MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) / nanotechnology piezoelectric vibrational energy harvesters (PZEH) that scavenge power from otherwise wasted vibrational kinetic energy. These micro-recharger devices integrated with power storage (ultra-capacitor or thin-film battery) form self-charging batteries. These enable autonomous non-wireless electronics, and wireless sensor network (WSN) applications. Applications include Smart Energy/Grid (e.g. building lighting control, preventive maintenance of industrial equipment, monitoring air conditioning efficiency of computer server rooms), Smart Infrastructure (e.g. monitoring structural integrity of bridges), Smart Transportation (e.g. aircraft and train vibration sensors; automobile airbag sensors and TPMS), Homeland Security applications (e.g. asset tracking, weapon detection), and multitudes of complementary military proposes, and mobile devices as well.
MicroGen has begun high volume production.
