BOSTON - EnOcean and Texas Instruments (TI) have announced the expansion of their cooperative agreement to provide wireless solutions for building automation. Through this agreement, the companies will jointly create solutions enabling self-powered wireless sensor networks. To further optimize its product portfolio, EnOcean said it will integrate TI components into its wireless modules. EnOcean’s battery-less wireless technology harvests energy from its surroundings - motion, light, or differences in temperature - to enable self-powered wireless applications.

“In Texas Instruments we have a strong partner, optimally supporting our innovative and self-powered wireless solutions with its ultra-low-power components,” said EnOcean’s CEO Markus Brehler. “Together we can effectively develop market-driven energy harvesting wireless module solutions, which are an ideal basis for automation systems in sustainable buildings.”

Texas Instruments and EnOcean have collaborated since 2005 and TI components have been implemented in a variety of EnOcean modules. TI has also been a member of the EnOcean Alliance since 2008, working with other members of the Alliance on energy-efficient solutions for green buildings.

“Energy harvesting wireless technology reduces the installation cost of lighting, heating/air conditioning control, and monitoring by up to 70 percent. This technology enables long term energy conservation and sustainability for our customers,” said Laurent Giai-Miniet, general manager of TI’s Low-Power RF business unit. “Cooperation with EnOcean is an important step towards gaining a firm foothold in a fast growing market. The deciding factor in the expansion of our relationship with EnOcean was their proven expertise of energy harvesting technology, with wide market experience and a broad customer base.”
