- What is EnOcean?
Wireless sensors have been used for many years for building control, but maintenance battery replacement is too costly for professional building sensing solutions. Today, it’s possible to have wireless batteryless solutions powered from kinetic energy, light or temperature differential. Millions of batteryless wireless sensors already operate in buildings around the world measuring data and communicating with an intelligent system – saving up to 40% of energy and significant percentage of installation costs.
In addition, batteryless solutions can also be easily connected to all systems that communicate over WiFi, as well as over Ethernet/IP, KNX, BACnet or LON via gateways. Energy harvesting wireless solutions can also be combined with other protocols to provide an optimized system for individual requirements. This brings together the benefits of two or more worlds and allows energy harvesting wireless solutions to work together with several building automation systems.
The EnOcean standard is the only wireless standard optimized for self-powered wireless switches, sensors and controls for sustainable building and home automation and so to make buildings more energy-efficient, more flexible and lower in cost.
License-free 868 MHz, 902 MHz and 928 MHz frequency bands with 1% duty cycle and reliable radio range of approx. 30m indoors.
Sensor profiles are standardized to ensure product interoperability across all product manufacturers and to provide interoperable system solution.
Optimized for self-powered switches and sensors with high data transmission rate for sensor information of 125 kbit/s.
