IoT Sensors Harvest Their Own Energy

EnOcean unveils self-powered wireless switches and sensors, powered by their surroundings thanks to energy harvesting technology. providing reliable data for intelligent buildings and the Internet of Things (IoT). The wireless sensor solutions are based on Bluetooth and the EnOcean wireless standard on the sub 1 GHz band (ISO/IEC 14543-3-1x). Generating large amounts of reliable sensor data for IoT systems, the battery-less devices facilitate highly flexible, maintenance-free applications for global use in building automation, smart homes, LED lighting control, and industrial applications. In combination with IoT systems, these self-powered solutions help optimize the utilization of buildings, create new service models and make buildings more flexible, more energy-efficient and altogether more cost-effective.

 

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 self-powered wireless sensors are the eyes and ears of the IoT, as they collect the required data to operate large numbers of IoT devices efficiently, without any need of a battery.
