Under an agreement that has just been signed, element14 will now ship small samples and low volume quantities of EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless sensor modules.
With this global agreement, the inventor of patented self-powered wireless technology complements its international distribution strategy with a design-in distributor.
element14 will support the EnOcean Dolphin platform including bi-directional modules, energy harvesters, starter and developer kits.
EnOcean’s wireless modules have been deployed in more than 250,000 buildings globally, helping to create energy-efficient building and industrial automation solutions.
The energy harvesting technology powers wireless communications by collecting energy from the environment from motion, indoor light and temperature differentials.
This eliminates the need to install complicated and costly cabling or to fit batteries, making products based on this technology maintenance-free.
The EnOcean wireless protocol has been ratified as the international standard ISO/IEC 14543-3-10, the only standard for energy harvesting wireless solutions.
EnOcean modules combine micro-energy converters with ultra low power electronics and reliable wireless communications.
Part of element14's extended offering is the EnOcean Dolphin platform. Major components of the Dolphin system architecture are bi-directional and unidirectional wireless modules featuring an interface with different energy converters, such as the electro-mechanical harvester ECO 200, thermal harvesters or solar cells.
The modules come in EnOcean’s standard frequency versions for worldwide use. The platform is completed by developer kits and the EnOcean ESK 300 starter kit for an easy way to get started with battery-less wireless technology.
