EnOcean gets off to a flying start
The EnOcean Alliance has announced worldwide success in its opening months of operation with over 50 companies pledging their commitment to the development of EnOcean self-powered wireless technology as the standard for sustainable buildings.
“Since our European launch at the light+building show in April, the level of support we have received from companies that serve the international building services market has been exceptional,” commented Graham Martin, Chairman of the EnOcean Alliance. “The member total is currently above 50 and is steadily increasing owing to the dedication, expertise and resources of the founding promoters.”
MK Electric, a Honeywell business, is the first UK-based Alliance promoter to integrate EnOcean technology in its Echo range of wireless switches, launched in April. US semiconductor giant Texas Instruments also recently announced its backing of the EnOcean wireless standard joining other innovators and industry leaders such as Masco, Siemens, Leviton, Osram Sylvania, Distech Controls, Omnio and Thermokon.
In wireless building automation, EnOcean self-powered wireless technology has the largest install base in the world – with over 70 shipping manufacturers, 300 available products and 10,000 EnOcean-enabled buildings. Many new major OEM projects using the EnOcean standard have been started for residential and commercial applications in the UK, Central Europe and North America.
