TI commits to EnOcean standard for energy-harvesting wireless technology in buildings
"The EnOcean Alliance is a great opportunity for TI, which is innovating to enable smart, energy-efficient buildings," said Laurent Giai-Miniet, TI's low-power RF product line manager. "TI's involvement in the EnOcean wireless standard is an important way to apply our low-power semiconductor technologies to harness the untapped energy around us and move beyond batteries and power cords."
TI is a key semiconductor supplier to the EnOcean Alliance eco-system, which includes innovators and industry leaders such as Masco, Honeywell, Siemens, Osram Sylvania, Distech Controls, Omnio and Thermokon. The EnOcean self-powered wireless technology has the largest installation base in wireless building automation, with more than 70 shipping customers, 300 available products and tens of thousands of EnOcean-enabled buildings.
Building professionals highly value the interoperability across manufacturers and application profiles inherent to the EnOcean standard.
The EnOcean Alliance North American launch will be at LIGHTFAIR International (booth 1481) in Las Vegas, May 28-30. Several Alliance members will announce new products and intelligent green building projects.
"The Alliance is still in launch phase but we have already passed a major milestone in gaining the support of such a prominent semiconductor leader as TI," said Graham Martin, Chairman of the EnOcean Alliance. "At April's Light+Building conference, the largest home & building automation show Light+in the world, more than 40 companies demonstrated 200 interoperable EnOcean-based products. This is a great testament to the qualities of the EnOcean standard - no batteries, maintenance-free, interoperable and easy-to-install - as well as the commitment of the founding promoters to sustainable green buildings."
About EnOcean technology
EnOcean's simple yet intelligent, self-powered wireless switches and sensors are powered by energy drawn from movement, light or even changes in temperature rather than batteries. This harvested energy is used for transmitting sensor data over a distance of up to 30 meters, through walls, within a building to control lighting, blinds, heating or air conditioning without the need for cabling. In addition to its eco-friendliness, the technology is easily installed and maintenance-free, ensuring unparalleled flexibility at the lowest investment and operational cost for sustainable buildings.
About the EnOcean Alliance
The EnOcean Alliance is a consortium of companies working to further develop and promote self-powered wireless monitoring and control systems for sustainable buildings by formalizing the interoperable wireless standard. It has the largest installed base of field-proven wireless building automation networks in the world. For further information, please visit www.enocean-alliance.org.
