EnOcean demonstrates self-powered wireless systems

September 26, 2017 //By Jean-Pierre Joosting
At IoT Solutions World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, EnOcean will demonstrate how maintenance-free wireless systems for building automation and the IoT add new dimensions to services and business models and help transform intelligent buildings into cognitive buildings.

EnOcean will show self-powered wireless switches, sensors and actuators, as well as energy harvesting wireless sensor systems based on their wireless standard on the sub 1 GHz band (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1x). The company's batteryless devices facilitate highly flexible, maintenance-free applications for global use in building automation, smart homes, LED lighting control and industrial applications.

Together with leading industry partners, such as IBM, and other EnOcean Alliance Members, EnOcean is working on developing innovative building systems for the IoT. In combination with intelligent IoT systems such as the IBM Watson IoT Platform, self-powered sensor systems help optimize the utilization of buildings, create new service models and make buildings more flexible, more energy-efficient and altogether more cost-effective.

“To bring sensors to the cloud, EnOcean´s self-powered wireless technology is crucial for collecting large amounts of reliable sensor information”, says Andreas Schneider, CEO of EnOcean. “Maintenance-free sensor solutions based on EnOcean modules will significantly facilitate the transition to big data analytics and the Internet of Things. In close collaboration with strong partners, we will continue developing exciting new self-powered, maintenance-free applications for our customer’s sensor solutions in the IoT.”

Systems based on the EnOcean wireless standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1X) introduced by the EnOcean Alliance on the sub 1 GHz band has proven to be a resounding success in building automation and smart homes, due to its high reliability and a radio range of up to 30 meters. Self-powered wireless sensor systems help to make buildings more flexible, more energy-efficient and more cost-effective.
