  • Publication number: 20220147789
    Abstract: A mechanical energy-based self-powering counting system is provided. The system includes an electromagnetic power generator, a count measuring circuit, a count energy supply circuit, a controller and a wireless transmission module. The electromagnetic power generator is driven by an external device and produces an electric signal and outputs the electric signal to the controller after passing it through the count measuring circuit. The controller processes the received signal, updates a count according to certain programming rules and sends data to the wireless transmission module. The energy from the electromagnetic power generator flowing through the count measuring circuit can supply power to the controller. An energy storage module in the count energy supply circuit performs voltage feedback on the controller. The controller monitors the voltage of the energy storage module to control whether it enters a charging state.
