Laki Power is developing the World's most convenient, secure,
and cost-effective tools to monitor and enhance critical infrastructure.


Power On-line Generator (POLG)

The Power On-line Generator (POLG) is a unique product in the high voltage line monitoring market. It is the only energy harvester that attains enough electricity to power several external devices and has a built-in accessory compartment, as a part of its weather-sealed enclosure, to securely store sensor devices, such as inclinometer, heat sensor, and cameras. 

The POLG product easily clamps onto any alternating current (AC) carrying phase wires of high voltage power lines and harvests this energy from the surrounding electromagnetic field. The power harvested is sufficient to provide direct current (DC) power for running external and internal surveillance and monitoring devices and many other applications needing clean and stable DC power.
