Main Activity in Nanotechnology
EnOcean has become the de facto standard for sensors that are wireless, batteryless and maintenance free. Our groundbreaking components create energy seemingly from nothing. The slightest change in pressure, the smallest variation in temperature is enough to generate power for our ultra efficient sensors to make their readings and transmit their results.
Our strength is in the combination of two key technologies: Firstly the harvesting of energy from the environment and secondly the use of radical power management techniques that enable our devices to run on minuscule amounts of energy. The net result is that EnOcean devices do not need batteries or an external power source, they can be deployed where they are needed, without the need to schedule retrieval for battery changing. By removing the need for maintenance we have revolutionised what is possible with wireless sensors.
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) from around the world have taken this patented technology and used it to create devices for a diverse range of industries including building automation, industrial manufacturing and automotive technology.
At EnOcean our focus is to help OEMs to bring compelling products to market in the shortest timeframes possible. Some of our OEMs build products with our off the shelf devices, other work with us to design custom devices optimised to their specific needs. All of them benefit from the greater functionality, accelerated time to market and reduced development risk that comes from using a proven technology.
We understand the needs of electronic designers, because that is our own background. EnOcean was founded in 2001 as a spin-off from the prestigious research labs of Siemens AG, and it is funded by some of the leading Venture Capital funds in Europe, including: SAM Private Equity, Wellington Partners, 3i, Siemens Venture Capital, and Baytech Venture.
