Similar to sunlight exciting electrons in a solar cell, heat flow through a thermoelectric generator excites electrons to produce a voltage. Waste heat is everywhere and thermoelectric generators can harvest this heat and convert it into electricity to provide energy to connected Internet of Things devices.
A winner of numerous prestigious awards, including R&D 100, U.S. Federal Laboratory, and Wireless Health, Thermogen's proprietary thin-film thermoelectric products are engineered to convert a very small amount of heat flow into useful energy. The result of decades of development, our unique technology enables smarter and worry-free connected devices.
Thermogen TEMs are high voltage thermoelectric devices, enabling a much more efficient overall energy harvesting system. TEMs provide power output and are compatible with FPCs, PCBs, or discrete wire interconnects. TEMs can be specifically engineered for optimal thermoelectric energy harvesting and integration into your products.
In 2010, Perpetua Power acquired Thermo Life® Technologies, a leading developer of advanced thin-film thermoelectric technology. In addition to a robust patent portfolio, Perpetua also gained a world-renowned thermoelectric expert, Dr. Ingo Stark, as its Chief Scientist.
Perpetua Power was awarded multiple SBIR contracts from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate and the National Science Foundation (NSF) to further develop our technology for specific types of wearable applications.
In early 2015, Perpetua Power announced the spin-off of its thin-film, wearable energy harvesting technology business unit. This new entity, Thermogen Technologies, is strategically focused on the rapidly expanding Wearables and IoT markets.
Today, we are working with our customers through engineering contracts, busy assisting them with the integration of thermoelectric energy harvesting technology into their future IoT solutions.
