Energy harvesting wireless technology

EnOcean is the world leader in energy harvesting wireless solutions. The wireless modules gain their energy from motion, light or temperature differences by using energy harvesters. This allows wireless solutions that operate without batteries and are therefore maintenance-free for high reliability.
