THE ENOCEAN TECHNOLOGY
Whats is EnOcean ?
EnOcean is an open radio protocol with a very low energy consumption. It enables self-powered devices to detect and communicate with each other in a reliable and intelligent way.
How does EnOcean work?
The EnOcean technology is based on 3 principles :
- The use of renewable power (i.e. solar power, kinetics or Peltier effect)
- Self-powered devices with a minimal energy consumption
- An efficient and non-polluting radio transmission for a safe communication
Why should I use EnOcean ?
To reduce my energy bill: in combination with TRIO2SYS technological know-how, the EnOcean radio protocol offers the possibility to optimise the building's energy ressources and to use them in a smarter way. Here are some examples:
Lighting management based on room occupancy
HVAC control according to luminosity & temperature
To reduce my operational costs: a radio system is not affected by price hikes in raw materials. It also reduces the installation time on site thanks to the absence of cabling operations. Moreover, self-powered radio devices (no battery) prevent maintenance operations thus decreasing costs.
To overcome physical constraints: in existing installations, it is not always easy to implement wired intelligent building management systems (i.e. a ship with restricted space, a historic site with specific requirements). For temporary installations (modular constructions, base camps), the advantages of a radio-based system lie in its flexibility compared to the limits faced by traditional wired systems.
To sum up...
For the installer :
- No cabling
- Time saving
- Easy setting and intuitive configuration
- A guaranteed interoperability to integrate additional EnOcean-based solutions (devices, gateways)
For the site manager :
- Less costs (less maintenance shifts to schedule, energy savings)
- Flexibility (fast deployment between projects)
- An up-to-100m radio range on open ground
For the end user :
- More comfort on site
- No radio pollution
- Reliable devices (self-powered and user-friendly)
