Systems and methods for wireless temperature sensing

Systems and methods for wireless temperature sensing
Inventors: Norman Love, Yirong Lin
Patent No. 10,228,290

This patent application embodies a self-powered wireless temperature sensor.

Wireless temperature sensing systems and methods include an active sensor for determining temperature parameters in harsh environments, such as in very high temperature conditions, and wireless conveyance of the detected parameters. In an example embodiment, a pyroelectric element can generate a voltage when subjected to a temperature change. A coil is electrically coupled to the pyroelectric element and configured to generate a magnetic field in response to a current induced by the voltage generated by the pyroelectric element. A pickup is electromagnetically coupled with and detects the magnetic field generated by the coil, and the pickup is configured to provide an output corresponding to the detected magnetic field.
