Description

The core element of our Energy Harvesting technology, the generator is available in monostable (momentary) or bistable (latching) forms, with or without RF electronics. Based on the inductive principle, the required RF energy is generated by the actuation of the patented mechanism, which converts the mechanical energy into electrical energy in the form of an RF signal.

Note: Standalone generators should be used with suitable RF electronics. The generator module is supplied with RF electronics using the ZF proprietary protocol. The integration of a custom protocol is possible (subject to minimum order quantity).  See table at base of page for more information on standard products.
