Power Modules Offer Day/Night Functionality

Saelig has introduced the patented Sol Chip Pak (SCP-R2801) Power Modules which offer day/night non-stop functionality by combining state-of-the-art solar cells, a rechargeable battery and advanced power management circuitry. These power modules include all the components that are required to harvest energy from ambient light, charge a built-in Saelig scp-power-modulerechargeable battery, and deliver a stable voltage to a load. Sol Chip’s patented technology integrates solar energy conversion with very large-scale integration (VLSI) techniques to produce unique ambient light harvesting devices that can even extract energy from office lighting to provide 24/7power. These versatile boards, based on Sol Chip’s unique Saturn cells, provide power even in office light conditions.

The output voltage of these “everlasting solar batteries” is regulated to 3.6 V, but other voltages are available by request to suit alternate applications. Versions are available with 1, 2, 3, or 6 Saturn solar cells depending on the power needs. The 6-cell version provides an average output current of up to 750 µA from the integrated solar cells, with up to 1.5 A peak current. The capacity of the 3.6 V on-board rechargeable batteries in the series is 190 mAh to 1,100 mAh.
