Smart Generator Technology

The mechanical generator systems, developed and patented by Kinetron, are devices that transform human or mechanical kinetic energy into electrical energy to power electronic products.

This transformation is realized by a highly efficient micro generators and micro precision mechanics, to guarantee the highest efficiency and highest power density in the market.

Besides energy generation, Kinetron’s smart generator systems can be equipped with highly efficient rectifying, charging and storing circuits and can be configured to gather, process and (wirelessly) transmit data about the use or movement of the system. This enables the creation of self-powered smart products for monitoring and control purposes.
