EnOcean uses a patented energy harvesting wireless technology for use in building automation, Smart Home and Internet of Things.
EnOcean devices combine micro energy converters with ultra-low power electronics, and enable wireless communications between battery-less wireless sensors, battery-less switches, mains powered actuators and central gateways / controllers.
The technology empowers a wide array of devices from various vendors, all offering simple, proven and maintenance-free solutions to meet your Home Automation requirements.
Compatibility and interoperability between EnOcean devices is ensured by the EnOcean Alliance. Formed in 2008 by many of the largest manufacturers of EnOcean equipment it quickly ratified several EEPs (EnOcean Equipment Profiles) along with the lower levels of the wireless standard used. More than 250 companies currently belong to the EnOcean Alliance and the technology has enjoyed huge growth in the past 5 years.
EnOcean Wireless Module Support
The EnOcean 2 Click Board™ carries the TCM 515Z transceiver, based on the 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio standard. The Click Board™ is designed to run on a 3.3V power supply. It communicates with the target microcontroller over UART interface.
This low-powered wireless module is intended for use together with EnOcean's range of energy harvesting modules. These are miniaturized converters that harness energy from motion, light or temperature differences, that come in the form of self-powered, battery-free wireless switches, sensors and actuators.
The EnOcean 4 Click Board™ carries a ultra-low power TCM515U transceiver gateway module which operates at 902MHz radio band, perfectly suited for the realization of transceiver gateways, actuators and controllers for systems communicating based on the EnOcean radio standard. For communication to other devices we have implemented PCB antenna on the board making this Click Board™ ready to use device which can filter, decrypt and authenticate traffic before forwarding it to the processor or PC over UART.
