Radio Technology

We create interoperable wireless sensor solutions for building automation, the smart home and IoT applications

We want you to not only rely on a single system when it comes to realizing your self-powered wireless sensor solutions. Interoperability is the keyword here. That’s why we are driving forward the standardization of energy harvesting for all wireless standards –  to make the unique possibilities of this technology available for a great variety of applications. We bring our know-how into standardization working groups of the EnOcean Alliance, Bluetooth SIG and the Connectivity Standards Alliance, to further optimize these three wireless standards for particularly low-energy and, thus, sustainable applications.

Please note: the sale of products using EnOcean Alliance technology or the use of the EnOcean Alliance brand or logo might require membership in the EnOcean Alliance. For further details please contact help@enocean-alliance.org.

Benefits of the EnOcean Wireless Standard (ISO/IEC 14543.3.1x)

High reliability

  • Use of regulated frequency ranges with highest air time availability (approved for pulsed signals only)
  • 868 MHz for the European Union according to CE/RED regulations and the UK according to UK/CA regulation
  • 902 MHz for USA according to FCC specification and for Canada according IC specification
  • 928 MHz for Japan accoring to ARIB specification
  • Multiple telegram transmission with checksum
