By eeNews Europe


The SPGA Series is a compact power-generating device employing 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 the 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.

Technical details of the SPGA Series Energy Harvester include a long operating life of one million cycles, compact dimensions of only 17.5mm × 23mm × 17.9mm, as well as sufficient power generation – more than 170μJ for each action (press or return). In addition, the component also features excellent operational feeling with a specified operating force of 6±1.5N.
