The technology is designed to gather energy from existing sources found in any industrial or building complex – the energy generated from the push of a light switch or a difference in temperature emitted from a machine or radiator is enough to transmit wireless signals.
EnOcean’s wireless modules have been successfully deployed in more than 100,000 buildings globally, helping to create energy-efficient building and industrial automation solutions. EnOcean’s technology enables organisations in any sector to capture heat, motion and light and utilise it as the sole power source for wireless sensors. This eliminates the need for batteries, creating an innovative and sustainable solution for maximising energy performance while reducing operating costs. This also removes the requirement for on-site maintenance and, because the devices communicate via radio frequency, there is no need for costly and complex wiring.
"The UK and Ireland are very important markets for EnOcean", said John Corbett, UK Sales Director for EnOcean. "Partnering with a well-respected distributor like Alpha Micro will help us increase and maintain our presence here. The combination of their in-house design team, which offers its customers a considerable added-value service, and exceptional expertise in wireless technology, should allow us to form a solid foundation for expanding our customer base among British and Irish enterprises."
