EnOcean , world leader in energy harvesting wireless technology, demonstrates at ISH 2017 (Frankfurt am Main, March 14 – 18) how maintenance-free wireless solutions for smart buildings and the Internet of Things (IoT) can meet the claim expressed by this year's main theme of 'Energy Efficiency and Comfort in Buildings'. At Booth B69 in Hall 10.3, the company presents TCM 515 for the first time, the latest generation of continuously powered transceiver modules, which open up new applications for the EnOcean wireless standard and further strengthens the extensive EnOcean ecosystem, thanks to increased computing power, lower power consumption and a smaller form factor. The new TCM module expands the comprehensive Dolphin portfolio, which consists of self- powered wireless switches, sensors and actuators. EnOcean's batteryless devices facilitate highly flexible, maintenance-free applications for global use in building automation, smart homes, LED lighting control and industrial applications. Together with leading industry partners, such as IBM, EnOcean is working on developing innovative building solutions for the Internet of Things.

The batteryless Internet of Things Networked devices form the basis for smart buildings and the Internet of Things. They process large volumes of sensor data to make our everyday lives easier, safer and more comfortable. The energy harvesting wireless sensors from EnOcean are the eyes and ears of the IoT, since they collect the data needed to efficiently operate a wide range of IoT devices without the need of a battery.

At this year's ISH, EnOcean presents a new development from its Dolphin product portfolio: · The TCM 515 transceiver module—ideal for new applications with the EnOcean wireless standard · The new network-operated TCM 515 transceiver module, with an ultra low-powered microcontroller, is an ideal addition to the Dolphin portfolio in the 868 MHz, 902 MHz and 928 MHz ranges—all based on the EnOcean wireless standard. Combining lower energy consumption with higher computing power and a smaller form factor provides a significant investment in the growing EnOcean ecosystem, which provides interoperable intelligent buildings.

The TCM 515 is a gateway module with a comprehensive API, which facilitates easy integration into terminal devices for seamless use in interoperable systems. Thanks to the integrated security function, no additional components are needed for encryption. Support for remote commissioning also makes it easy to commission equipment by remote access.

'By adding the TCM 515 to our portfolio, we enable product manufacturers to develop additional self-powered sensor solutions for the growing EnOcean ecosystem,' explains Andreas Schneider, CEO of EnOcean. 'We are happy to see the energy harvesting technology becoming successfully established in building automation and smart homes and our innovative, maintenance-free solutions being used in more and more applications. In collaboration with the EnOcean Alliance and partners such as IBM, we will continue to develop future-oriented batteryless and thus maintenance-free applications for our customers' sensor solutions in the Internet of Things.'

IBM and EnOcean bring sensors to the cloud for IoT applications in sub 1 GHz To further develop maintenance-free wireless solutions with the EnOcean radio standard in the sub 1 GHz range for the Internet of Things, EnOcean works closely together with IBM, a strong partner with longstanding expertise in cloud-based services and IoT. EnOcean is proud to be one of the first IBM business partners entitled to use the
