MicroGen Systems has developed a patent-pending MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) based Piezoelectric Vibrational Energy Harvester (PZEH). MicroGen's BOLT(TM) power generator is intended to provide an alternate power source to the battery for low-power electronics and wireless sensor network (WSN) applications. The BOLT product produce voltages >5 Volts and power >200 uWatts at 60/120Hz +/- 5 Hz and 1g acceleration with greater than 20 year reliability. Our products are integrated with electronics, and thin-film batteries and/or ultra-capacitors for power storage.
