The Energy Harvesting technology from EnOcean powers wireless communications by collecting energy from the surroundings from motion, indoor light or temperature differentials. This eliminates complicated and costly cabling and the products based on this technology are maintenance-free. The guiding principle behind this is the international standard ISO/IEC 14543-3-10, the first wireless standard optimised for energy harvesting solutions.
EnOcean and Thermokon are two of the eight promoters of the EnOcean Alliance, its key players who lead, define and drive the organisation. The EnOcean Alliance is a non-profit association of companies that integrate EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless technology in their products. By using the same basic technology for different solutions, the EnOcean Alliance members create devices and systems that are compatible with each other. Currently more than 300 companies worldwide belong to the EnOcean Alliance providing more than 1000 compatible products that work in accordance with the EnOcean standard.
