Data Loggers for Alternative Energy Applications

Data Loggers

Alternative Energy Monitoring

MadgeTech data loggers can be used to monitor and record parameters in alternative energy production and usage studies. The alternative energy product line includes devices for pressure, temperature, current voltage, pulse, event, state and motion. They are commonly used in applications such as utility usage studies, energy audits, testing and verification, building studies and in energy production processes.

The Netherlands are known for its picture perfect landscapes, colorful tulip fields, and of course those wooden windmills. In 1421, the windmill was first erected in Holland to help drain the country after ravaging floods, but were put to work throughout the centuries producing oil, paper, and even ships. It's no surprise that their love of wind is being used in the 21st century to power 100% of its passenger trains.

Last year, the Solar Impulse made history after completing the first flight around the world by a solar-powered airplane. This year, a former multi-hull race boat dubbed the Energy Observer, is going to give the Solar Impulse a run for its money by taking a six year trip around the world running solely on renewable energies and hydrogen, which can store 20 times more energy than conventional batteries.

Solar energy has long been seen as a clean, readily available fuel source with the potential to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and other pollutants. Now that solar panels are a common sight on rooftops and along the side of highways, some medical researchers believe it's time to take the next step: putting solar cells inside the human body. While such a procedure may sound like something from the realm of science fiction, a research team led by Lukas Bereuter of Bern University in Switzerland recently completed a study that determined it is feasible to power a cardiac pacemaker using a subcutaneous (under skin) implanted solar cell.

With the need for clean, safe energy greater than ever, the US Department of Energy (DOE) has begun work to determine a design for practical fusion power plants. As part of this effort, the DOE has recruited researchers from around the country, being led by the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), to create a computer simulation model of how plasma might act in a reactor.
