Near Field Communication

Energy harvesting and NFC – the perfect duo!

A quick and easy implementation is key when it comes to realizing sensor systems for intelligent buildings and IoT applications. Especially, when there are thousands of sensors in a single building, delivering the needed data for individual and demand-based processes. With the help of Near Field Communication (NFC) you can configure and install our energy harvesting devices in a simple and quick way, exactly fitted to your individual demands and environments.

How does this work? With this type of wireless communication, data is transmitted from an NFC device – wireless and self-powered EnOcean modules – to an NFC reader over a short range of no more than two centimetres. These can be, for example, NFC-enabled smartphones or tablets. The short distance between the two devices makes NFC especially great for data transmission, as your data is being highly protected.
