EnOcean GmbH is the developer of the patented energy harvesting wireless technology. Headquartered in Oberhaching, near Munich, the company produces and markets self-powered wireless sensor solutions for batteryless applications in the Internet of Things, which are used for building and industrial automation, smart homes, LED lighting control and outdoor environmental monitoring. The EnOcean products are based on miniaturized energy converters, ultra-low power electronics and robust radio technology in open standards like EnOcean, Zigbee and Bluetooth®. Leading product manufacturers have been relying on EnOcean wireless modules for their system solutions for the past 15 years and have installed the products in several hundreds of thousands of buildings around the world.
The self-powered Internet of Things
The EnOcean modules and Easyfit products use the energy harvesting principle, in which energy is obtained from the surroundings, to supply self-powered wireless sensor networks. The modules are based on miniaturized energy converters that convert motion, light or temperature differences into electrical energy. Together with an efficient energy management system, the energy harvesting technology facilitates communication between maintenance-free IoT devices based on open wireless standards, such as EnOcean, Zigbee and Bluetooth. The solutions are used in building automation, smart homes, LED lighting control systems as well as industrial applications.
Networked devices form the basis of the Internet of Things. They process large volumes of sensor data to make our everyday lives easier, safer and more comfortable. EnOcean´s modules are a key component of this extensive network: self-powered, wireless sensors that provide reliable sensor data for IoT systems.
The EnOcean portfolio – energy harvesting wireless modules for maintenance-free sensor solutions
The product lines "868 MHz EnOcean" for Europe, "902 MHz EnOcean" for North America and "928 MHz EnOcean" for Japan consist of batteryless, radio-based switch, sensor and receiver modules as well as various tools. They are based on the EnOcean wireless standard introduced by the EnOcean Alliance (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1X) on the sub 1 GHz band, which 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. Standardized sensor profiles help ensure the interoperability of more than 1,500 products from the EnOcean ecosystem, which makes it possible to develop interoperable system solutions.
