Oberhaching/Hamburg, May 30, 2017

EnOcean, world leader in energy harvesting wireless technology, launches a new product line for wireless and self-powered LED lighting controls for open standards under the brand Easyfit, which will be presented at Smart Lighting 2017 Conference (Hamburg, May 30-31, 2017). The Easyfit product line includes wireless and self-powered wall switches based on Bluetooth Low Energy radio standard for LED lighting systems for use in modern lighting control worldwide. Wireless, easy to retrofit and maintenance free, the Easyfit wall switches are helping make LED lighting solutions more energy-efficient, more flexible and lower in cost. Combined with self-powered Bluetooth lighting systems from Casambi, Silvair and Xicato, Easyfit wall switches offer lighting installers the benefits of maintenance-free, freely easily positionable and ready-to-use solutions, allowing flexible control as well as intuitive usage.

“By adding the Easyfit product line to our portfolio, we have taken another important step toward modern LED lighting control for worldwide usage,” explains Andreas Schneider, CEO of EnOcean. “Wireless and self-powered Easyfit wall switches help to increase energy efficiency, save costs and meet regulatory requirements. EnOcean now enables lighting installers to unlock the full potential of LED lighting systems with simple, easy to install, maintenance-free switches based on our proven energy harvesting technology.”

Easyfit switches for Bluetooth lighting systems

EnOcean now offers wireless and self-powered wall switches for Bluetooth lighting control systems. The Easyfit Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) switches are available in two different design versions: The Easyfit switch with standardized 55x55mm frame (EWSSB/EWSDB) allows installers to easily replace any 55×55 switch frame from a number of renowned manufacturers such as BERKER, GIRA, Jäger Direkt, JUNG and MERTEN. The second design is the Easyfit switch for North America (ESRPB/EDRPB).

The self-powered and wireless Easyfit switches can be commissioned by Near Field Communication (NFC) to allow simple or complex lighting scenes and effects, and enable easy, flexible installation of lighting applications. The wireless Easyfit switches are maintenance-free as they do not require batteries, freely positionable and allow flexible control as well as intuitive usage.

Easyfit BLE switches are supported by Casambi, Silvair and Xicato, offering self-powered control solutions for Bluetooth lighting systems in 2.4 GHz

Casambi has integrated a support for the Easyfit switches to work seamlessly within Casambi’s Bluetooth networked lighting controls. Equipped with NFC technology, the Easyfit wall switches enable fast and simple commissioning and allow controlling individual luminaires, groups of luminaires, scenes and animations in Casambi lighting control solutions.

With the Mesh Stack, Silvair provides a wireless communication engine for robust and fully scalable mesh lighting. The integration of Easyfit switches into the Mesh allows an optimal, maintenance-free control of lighting systems with low latency, even in high-density lighting networks. It can be updated over-the-air to become compliant with the upcoming Bluetooth Mesh standard following its adoption.

Xicato´s XIM Gen4 LED lighting modules plus EnOcean´s Easyfit switches for Bluetooth Low Energy are ideal for retail and commercial applications requiring California Title 24 compliance. The combination of the energy harvesting wireless Easyfit switches with the features of Xicato´s LED lighting modules allows simple or complex lighting scenarios, and enables flexible installation. These self-powered lighting solutions are used in some of the world’s finest museums, retail stores, hotels and residences.
