Energy Harvester is ATEX-certified for hazardous environments

04 October 2007

Perpetuum has introduced an intrinsically safe ATEX version of the industrial PMG17 vibration energy harvester, for safe working in Zone 0, 1 or 2 environments. The microgenerator that enables wireless, battery-free sensing for condition monitoring and asset management applications has been given an ATEX EC-Type Examination Certificate and a IECEx Draft Certificate of Conformity. These certificates, when combined with pending QA certifications, will allow Perpetuum to supply the PMG17 to its customers
with Ex ia IIC T4 markings.

The PMG17 transforms the kinetic energy of machine vibration into electrical current, which is sufficient to power complete wireless sensor nodes, including sensors, micro processors and 802.15.4 transceivers. The ATEX-approved PMG17 microgenerator benefits from the same rigorous design and build processes that are a feature of all Perpetuum¹s microgenerators, making it a cost-effective and reliable solution for hazardous environment applications.
