EnOcean unveiled at At Light+Building 2014 its new energy harvesting wireless switch module communicating in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. The new module is intended for consumer applications such as the control of LED lighting systems. It complements EnOcean’s established battery-less portfolio in the sub 1 GHz frequency band, often selected in building automation and smart home applications.
With its new 2.4 GHz (IEEE 802.15.4) switch module, EnOcean is targeting the specific requirements of worldwide consumer applications.
The 2.4 GHz switch module has the same form factor as EnOcean’s PTM 210 module in the sub 1 GHz frequency band. Therefore, it fits in any standardized light switch. It is powered by EnOcean’s miniature patented ECO 200 electromechanical energy generator. Converting kinetic energy into electrical energy works in the same way as a small but powerful dynamo, drawing out and delivering this power to a wireless module.
Visitors at Light+Building (March 30-April 4, Frankfurt/Main) can learn more about EnOcean’s battery-less wireless switch module portfolio at Booth G11 in Hall 4.0.
