International standards supports EnOcean development
A new standard for wireless sensors and their networks has been ratified by the IEC for wireless applications with ultra-low power consumption. According to EnOcean, it is the first and only wireless standard that its also optimised for energy-harvesting solutions and, therefore, to EnOcean’s self-powered wireless technology. Together with the EnOcean equipment profiles drawn up by the EnOcean Alliance, this international standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-10) lays the foundation for fully interoperable, open wireless technology.
Members of the EnOcean Alliance have already introduced more than 850 EnOcean-based interoperable products.
International standardisation will accelerate the development and implementation of energy-optimised wireless sensors and wireless sensing networks. It will also open up new markets and areas of application for energy-harvesting solutions.
Laurent Giai-Miniet, CEO of EnOcean, says, ‘EnOcean supported the development of the new standard from day one. The ratification is a milestone in our company history and validates the success and potential of energy-harvesting technology. Standardisation will boost the demand for energy-harvesting sensors and wireless modules and step up their implementation. At the same time, we anticipate the development of even more efficient energy-harvesting solutions that use a wide range of energy sources.’
