Energy Harvesting Kit: VLT-9001
Midé's VLT-9001 piezoelectric energy harvesting kit has everything you need to start harvesting vibration energy. The kit includes the PPA-2011 piezo and the PPA-9001 clamp kit that has hardware necessary for clamping and adding tip masses. Piezoelectric energy harvesting doesn't end with the piezo and clamp though; power management circuitry is needed. Linear Technology offers a number of piezoelectric energy harvesting electronic solutions. They have also partnered with Wurth Elektronik to offer an energy harvesting kit that incorporates a microprocessor, data acquisition and wireless communication; this solution provides everything you need to develop a full up system powered off piezoelectric and three other types of energy harvesting inputs.
*The PPA-2011 is the most popular piezoelectric energy harvester but it's not perfect for every application. Check out our blog on How to Select the Right Energy Harvester for your application.
