Title
(EN) COMMUNICATION SYSTEM WITH MULTIPLE SOURCES OF POWER
(FR) SYSTÈME DE COMMUNICATION AYANT DE MULTIPLES SOURCES D'ALIMENTATION
Abstract
(EN)
The system of the present invention includes a conductive element, an electronic component, and a partial power source in the form of dissimilar materials. Upon contact with a conducting fluid, a voltage potential is created and the power source is completed, which activates the system. The electronic component controls the conductance between the dissimilar materials to produce a unique current signature. The system can also measure the conditions of the environment surrounding the system.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un système qui comprend un élément conducteur, un composant électronique et une source d'alimentation partielle sous la forme de matériaux différents. Lors d'un contact avec un fluide conducteur, un potentiel de tension est créé et la source d'alimentation est complétée, ce qui active le système. Le composant électronique commande la conductance entre les matériaux différents pour produire une signature de courant unique. Le système peut également mesurer les conditions de l'environnement entourant le système.
