Harvesting power from vibrations for machine monitoring
The Feonic Powercell Sensor (FPS) monitors and recognizes potential failure of large machines and freight trains using energy harvested from vibrations.
The solution is powered through the small, lightweight Feonic Power Module — a smart-material energy harvester that generates power from the mechanical vibrations of the host machine. The purpose of the Feonic Powercell Sensor is to track and detect changes such as temperature or vibrations in the host machine's condition. It communicates wirelessly via remote monitoring using any proprietary wireless system. Any smart device, such as smartphones, can receive the reports made by the sensors. Given the harvest and storing of sufficient energy by the Power Module, there is virtually no need for maintenance support or battery replacement. Its application is not limited to freight trains, and can be applied to a number of legacy machines that can benefit from Remote Conditional Monitoring (RCM).
