EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless sensor technology collects energy where it costs nothing. The energy existing in our environment, for example linear motion, pressure, light, differences in temperature, is converted into energy that can be used electrically. Combining miniaturized energy harvesters and highly efficient wireless technology creates service-free wireless sensor solutions for use in buildings and industrial automation.

Energy converters for self-powered wireless switches and sensors

ECO 200 - Motion Energy Harvesting

Motion Converter for Mechanical Energy Harvesting Module for Energy Harvesting Wireless Switches

Motion converter in combination with  PTM 330 (868 MHz) / PTM 330C (315 MHz) enable new applications for energy-harvesting wireless technology.

Energy from a switching operation (button pressure):

  • Electrodynamic energy converter
  • User-dependent energy generation from button motion
  • Typically more than 300.000 switching cycles at 25 °C; in optimized applications more than 1 Mio cycles possible
  • For small and flat switch designs

Further energy converters for energy harvesting wireless applications

  • Rotation converter
    Gas and water meters rotate just like car tires and tools, and you cannot fit cables for measurement - an ideal application for wireless sensors powered by the energy of rotation.
  • Vibration converter
    Machines, motor vehicles, persons when they are running and many technical devices generate vibrations – why not make use of it?
