Alliance brings together energy harvesting for London show

The Enocean Alliance is bringing together some its supporters to make a big splash at the Building Services Event, which runs from 11 to 12 October at London’s Olympia exhibition centre.

All will be showing how energy harvesting technology can create innovative products. For example, in green buildings, integrators can install devices based on Enocean self-powered wireless sensors quickly and easily, resulting in flexibility, zero maintenance, and measurable energy and cost savings.

The supporting partners are Alpha Micro, Distech Controls, Enocean, MK Electric and Seamless Sensing, and the energy harvesting wireless technology has been developed to enable simple integration into OEM end products.

Distributor Alpha Micro will display wireless industrial automation products from companies including Enocean, U-Blox, FTDI, Lantronix and Gainspan. Its in-house software and hardware engineering group provides a technical package ranging from simple application support through to complete, bespoke design.

Distech Controls designs and makes building automation and energy management systems. It will demonstrate open control products that allow choice, advanced functionality and cost efficiency for engineers, integrators, distributors, OEMs and building owners. Highlights include the company’s digital controllers, which are fitted with a wireless receiver to allow data from the wireless, batteryless sensors and switches to be sent to an open Lonworks or EC-Net AX web-based, multi-protocol platform.

Enocean will demonstrate its mechanical energy converter and STM 310 wireless sensor transmitters based on the firm’s Dolphin chip. The STM 310 has an integrated energy storage designed to supply the module in periods where no light is available (typically up to four days). Applications include window contacts, temperature and humidity sensors, light sensors, pressure sensors, and gas sensors.

MK Electric will be exhibiting its Echo range of wireless, batteryless and self-powered switches. The switches are free from the constraints of wiring for where space needs to be rearranged periodically and where the invasive channelling of walls isn’t permitted.

Seamless Sensing will show wireless energy management products that reduce energy use and increase occupant comfort. These products allow users to streamline the operational costs of their buildings, meet regulatory compliance, manage operating risks and drive sustainability.
