Miniature Thermoelectric Generators
- DX2625 Ready-to-use Energy Harvester
DX2625 is a high-efficient self-contained thermoelectric generator block. It harvests waste heat and converts it into usable output DC power. With its compact size and high-performance conversion ratio this device is perfect as a stand-alone maintenance-free power supply for wireless sensors and networks (WSN). Modular construction, easy to mount design and up to 20mW real power output in natural convection conditions make DX2625 perfect also for LED lightning and battery charging applications.
Power from the harvester is generated by converting heat energy into electrical energy. The amount of generated electrical power depends on the temperature difference between heat source and ambient. In reality thermoelectric generators are sensitive to ambient conditions. Optimal TEG construction requires a perfect matching of thermal resistances between TEG and heatsink.
The key advantage of DX2625 is in its optimized and well-balanced electrical and thermal design. TEG efficiency depends a lot also on the ratio between TEG electrical resistance and resistance of the attached electronics. Simple at first glance, TEG energy harvesting idea turns into a complex engineering task with detailed thermal analysis and design. DX2625 is the compact “ready-to-use” TEG energy harvester, designed and already optimized by specialists in TEG applications. A visually simple solution is a combination of precise TEG estimations, accurate materials matching and a high-level engineering. The result is up to 20mW real output power in natural convection conditions, while the nearest analogs on the market have just a few milliwatts of actual output.
The output voltage of DX2625 can be regulated to accommodate three set points: 1.8V, 2.5V or 3.2V. Another great feature of DX2625 is its modular construction. The PCB inside has a reserved space for integrating customer electronics inside. Thus DX2625 from a pluggable TEG power supply unit can be transformed into a complete “all-in-one” solution based on customer requirements. Technically DX2625 is a high-performance energy harvesting TEG chassis for various applications
