The output of the micro-generator can easily cover the power needs of intermittent radio sensor systems such as Wireless HART, SP-100 and Wi-Fi in industrial applications, but its output impedance is too high to supply the 10s to 100s of milliwatts required by sensor nodes during data collection and transmission.
That equals 36 microwatts--microwatts, not milliwatts. A mainline pressure transducer can draw 5 milliamps at 5 Vdc, equaling 25 milliwatts of required power.
