Ad Hoc Electronics: Room, Building Wireless Controls

August 11, 2008


Illumra™ products communicate with room and building controllers to conserve energy through occupancy sensing, daylight harvesting, and personal workspace control technologies. The line of battery-free transmitters includes wireless light switches and sensors (temperature, occupancy, and light) that are self-powered using mechanical or solar energy sources. The wireless technology is enabled by EnOcean. Illumra products do not require wiring between the transmitter and controlled device, allowing the switches and sensors to be placed anywhere. The light switches use a small micro-generator to convert each switch-press into a small amount of electricity that powers a built-in transmitter. Illumra sensors harvest energy through a small solar cell, which collects energy from ambient light. Interoperable receivers can plug into outlets or be hard-wired to the devices they control.
