Nextreme Thermal Solutions in Durham, N.C., is introducing Thermobility power-generation technology that uses heat as a source of electricity for low-power wireless applications by using solid-state, thin-film thermoelectric technology to convert heat into electricity. Thermobility uses differences in temperature to enable wireless power anywhere with an adequate heat source. It eliminates the need to use traditional wired power sources or replaceable batteries. When paired with wireless transmitters, Thermobility can provide electric power for decades of maintenance-free operation for applications in industrial control, transportation, automotive, and building management. Thermobility WPG-1 provides a constant voltage output of 3.3, 4.1, or 5.0 volts DC to electrical loads of 15 kilo-ohms or higher. The WPG-1 is about the size of a golf ball and consists of a pin-fin heat sink, a custom circuit board, Nextreme’s eTEG HV56 thermoelectric power-generator module and a metal attachment plate that is applied to the desired heat source.
