EH300/EH301 Series

Advanced Linear Devices' EH300/EH301 series EPAD energy harvesting modules are designed for low power intermittent due and long-term storage applications. Specific onboard functions include energy capture and accumulation, energy storage, power conditioning, and energy management from various energy sources such as solar cells, PZT piezoelectric ceramic composite elements, inductive elements, and micro thermal electric generators. EH300 series modules can easily adapt to a wide range of voltage and power inputs and outputs. Energy can be collected from many types of secondary or waste-by-product environmental sources such as thermal, mechanical, chemical, solar, biological, and human body sources.
