New F module series from EnOcean addresses the specific requirements of the Chinese market to strengthen and accelerate the development of energy harvesting wireless solutions in this region
Munich/Guangzhou, China, May 28, 2014
EnOcean, the world leader in energy harvesting wireless technology, will introduce a new range of batteryless wireless modules particularly suited for the Chinese market at Guangzhou Electrical Building Technology (GEBT 2014, June 9-12). The F series provides a dedicated feature set matching local market requirements on price-performance ratio and allowing a faster time-to-market. With this portfolio expansion, EnOcean enables companies addressing the Chinese market to develop self-powered wireless solutions for several industries such as health care and hospital hygiene appliances, environment and smart city applications or consumer applications.
EnOcean has developed a complete platform of energy harvesting wireless solutions that offer unique benefits: they allow products to work without batteries or cables and, therefore, to be maintenance-free and particularly user-friendly. That way, the energy harvesting principle is the only technology that brings the cleantech aspect to wireless switches, sensors and actuators.
The F module series adds to the existing EnOcean portfolio of batteryless wireless solutions and communicates in the license-free frequency band at 868 MHz. It uses Frequency Shift Keying (FSK) as method of signal transmission and offers a set of complete sensor solutions and pre-programmed gateway modules. This combination perfectly matches technical features and attractive pricing for companies addressing the Chinese market who are interested in developing energy harvesting wireless solutions with minimum resources.
Based on the new F series, companies addressing the Chinese market can now develop specific batteryless wireless applications which are attractive in price and are highly requested in the region. This includes air quality sensing, smart parking, hospital hygiene or ambient assisted living for elderly people. For building automation, manufacturers can still use the existing EnOcean portfolio in 868 MHz based on the ISO/IEC 14543-3-10 standard, which is compatible to the EnOcean Alliance ecosystem. Companies who already offer EnOcean-based products for other regions can extend their existing portfolio with a 868 MHz FSK version with only minor changes due to the modules’ pin-compatibility.
“EnOcean is highly committed to its path of internationalization providing best-in-class energy harvesting wireless solutions worldwide. With the F module series, we consequently continue on this path. By offering an additional option to develop batteryless products suitable for the Chinese market, we support existing and new customers to be flexible in their product strategy. This will boost the adoption of self-powered wireless solutions in this region and encourage the development of new applications,” says Matthias Poppel, Chief Operating Officer, EnOcean GmbH.
The F module series includes the following energy harvesting wireless components:
Visitors of GEBT 2014 can learn more about the F module series and energy harvesting solutions in China at the seminar and workshop “EnOcean energy harvesting wireless standard for lighting and energy efficient building controls” on June 10th, 1.30 pm to 4.30 pm, meeting room 10, Area B at China Import and Export Fair Complex.
EnOcean GmbH is the pioneer of energy harvesting. Headquartered in Oberhaching, near Munich, with its subsidiary in Salt Lake City, UT, the company delivers valuable data for the Internet of Things (IoT) with its resource-saving technology. For more than 20 years, EnOcean has been producing maintenance-free wireless switches and sensors, which gain their energy from the surroundings – from movement, light or temperature. The combination of miniaturized energy converters, ultra-low power electronics and robust radio technology based on open standards (EnOcean, Zigbee and Bluetooth®) forms the foundation for digitized buildings, services and production processes in the IoT. The self-powered solutions are used in building automation, smart homes, LED lighting control and industrial applications. As an innovation driver, EnOcean is a strong partner for more than 350 leading product manufacturers and has already completed more than a million buildings worldwide with energy harvesting solutions.
