Dec. 27, 2012: EnOcean Alliance Introduces New Line of Energy Harvesting Wireless Modules for North America

SALT LAKE CITY and BOSTON — The EnOcean Alliance announced the availability of a new line of energy harvesting wireless modules communicating on the 902 MHz band for the North American market. According to the EnOcean Alliance, these new products increase the effective radio frequency range, offer enhanced resistance to interference, and simplify product development efforts due to shorter antenna lengths.

The new modules add to the existing 315 MHz Dolphin portfolio and include a self-powered wireless switch module (PTM 210U), a solar powered wireless sensor module (STM 300U), as well as transceiver modules for controllers and gateways (TCM 300U and TCM 320U). Additional 902 MHz solutions, such as a switch transmitter module (PTM 330U) and a solar powered temperature sensor module (STM 330U), will follow.

EnOcean has identified 902 MHz as the optimal additional, license-free frequency for energy harvesting wireless technology in North America, as it meets legal regulation requirements as well as forecasted trends over the coming years. In addition, 902 MHz is in the less crowded sub 1 GHz frequency band which offers more reliable, long range wireless communication for numerous batteryless wireless applications in building, home, and industrial automation.

Jim O’Callaghan, president of EnOcean Inc., said, “The 902 MHz frequency band is ideally suited for energy harvesting wireless applications, blending long range, fast RF transmission, and robust, energy efficient operation. In addition, the 902 MHz line is easier for our OEMs to integrate into their products, and less sensitive to installation variability in the field. We expect this frequency to increase the demand and market growth of energy harvesting wireless sensors and wireless sensor networks in North America.”
