The wireless lighting solution is made from organic materials while cutting costs, offering sustainability from an environmental perspective

Light Energy Harvesting (LEH) moduleIncreasing global digital transformation requires more and more dataflow between the physical and digital worlds, rapidly leading to a countless number of battery-powered small sensors and displays. This is not sustainable, neither from an environmental perspective nor from a maintenance perspective.

Redefining the possibilities for developing low-power wireless inexpensive devices that are also nature-friendly is the new Light Energy Harvesting (LEH) module. Made from low-cost organic materials, the module reduces environmental impact by up to 99 per cent and cuts maintenance costs by replacing batteries. It is ideal for powering wireless indoor low-power applications, such as IoT devices, various sensors, etc. 

The light cells are non-toxic, based on organic electronics and encapsulated in recyclable plastics. The entire manufacturing process is based on different printing techniques, roll-to-roll. The thin and flexible cells can easily be integrated into typical plastic-based electronics housings. 

Features

  • Operational temperature: -20 degrees Celsius to 40 degrees Celsius.
  • Humidity: 0 to 85 per cent RH
  • Power Density: 18μW/cm2
  • Flexible, compact and lightweight design with 0.2 mm thickness

Available in 6 standard sizes: 20, 30 and 50 mm with 6 or 8-cells in a semi-transparent module for easy integration, the product can be obtained from Epishine.   

The company’s long-term goal is to be at the forefront of printed organic solar cells and step by step continue enabling a scalable, resource-efficient and affordable solar cell.
