What is a Harvesting Receiver?
Energy harvesting, energy scavenging or power harvesting is the process of capturing energy from a system's environment and converting it into usable electric power. This allows electronic devices to work where there are no conventional power sources. An energy harvesting system often includes circuitry in order to provide regulation and protection by charging an energy storage cell and managing power.
Types of Harvesting Receivers
There are many different kinds of harvesting receivers. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Frequency Range, Data Rate, Packaging Type and Operating Temp Range. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The values for Frequency Range are 315 MHz, 868 MHz and 902 to 928 MHz.
Harvesting Receivers from Future Electronics
Future Electronics has a full harvesting receiver selection from several chip manufacturers that can be used to design an energy harvesting system or IC (integrated circuit), piezoelectric energy harvester, for electromagnetic energy harvesting, antenna energy harvesting or for any energy harvesting systems that require energy harvesting chips. Simply choose from the harvesting receiver technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed in order to match your specific harvesting receiver application needs.
If you have a preferred brand, we deal with EnOcean and Powercast as manufacturers. You can easily refine your harvesting receiver product search results by clicking your preferred harvesting receiver brand below from our list of manufacturers.
Applications for Harvesting Receivers:
Energy harvesting is often used for autonomous wireless devices, such as in wearable electronics and wireless sensor networks. It offers a very small amount of power for low-energy electronics. The energy source for energy harvesters is freely available as ambient background. Some examples include:
- Temperature gradients from the operation of a combustion engine and in urban areas
- Electromagnetic energy in the environment because of TV and radio broadcasting
- Wristwatches through kinetic energy
- Photovoltaic devices
- Micro wind turbines
Choosing the Right Harvesting Receiver:
When you are looking for the right harvesting receivers, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Frequency Range (315 MHz, 868 MHz and 902 to 928 MHz), Data Rate, Operating Temperature Rate and Packaging. You will be able to find the right harvesting receiver to design an energy harvesting IC (integrated circuit) or system, piezoelectric energy harvester, electromagnetic energy harvester, for antenna energy harvesting or for energy harvesting systems that may require energy harvesting chips.
Harvesting Receivers in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities
If the quantity of harvesting receivers that you require is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our harvesting receiver products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.
In addition, Future Electronics offers clients a unique bonded inventory program that is designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you can avoid possible shortages.
