Technology

Continuous research and development of energy harvesting technologies leading to the highest performing customized solutions with minimum investment, risk and time to market.

Generator technology

Micro-generators (up to 10W) convert the kinetic energy into electrical energy, which is used to create self-powered electronic (IoT) products.

Kinetron was founded by inventing the world’s smallest and energy-dense 4mm and 14 poles micro-generator for the Swiss watch industry.

Today the micro-generator is the beating heart of all our energy harvesting systems. We have the knowledge and capabilities to develop and manufacture customized multi-pole generators of different sizes, energy, and price levels.

MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

Linear, rotational, or gravity (weight) mechanical systems are required to transfer the energy from motion into rotational mechanical energy needed by the micro-generator.

Micro-mechanical components are driving elements, gears, wheels, one-way clutches, spring systems, etc.

Turbine Systems

Turbine systems convert energy from fluids' flow (water, air) into the rotational mechanical energy required by the micro-generator.

We have over 20 years of experience and millions of turbine products worldwide in the gas water heater and sanitary market.

In combination with high-quality drinking water-approved materials, innovative designs lead to high-performing turbine products with high power output, low-pressure loss, and maintenance-free solutions.

ELECTRONICS & INTELLIGENCE

The electric energy generated by the mechanical or turbine generator system is efficiently rectified and, if required, stored into capacitors or rechargeable batteries to power the electronics of the self-powered product.

The system can be made more intelligent and connected by using signals from the generator (or from another type of sensors) and adding connectivity like Bluetooth, Zigbee, 868MHz, LoRa, LTE-M, NB-IoT, Sigfox, etc.
