Compact energy harvester in distribution
The compact SPGA Series Energy Harvester from Alps Electric is now available in Europe through distributor TTi.

The SPGA Series uses electromagnetic induction to generate power with each push or release. Combined with external low-power wireless technology, the device can function as a switch. It can be installed away from a main board, for example in places where connection to a power source, or a battery replacement is difficult. The product is ideal particularly for frequently operated equipment. The main target applications are remote-control for ceiling lights and outdoor lights as well as gate open/close, open/close operation detection of a door/locker or emergency call button.

It has a long operating life of one million cycles, compact dimensions of only 17.5 × 23 × 17.9mm, as well as 170μJ of power generation for each action (press or return). In addition the component also has a specified operating force of 6±1.5N.
