Echoflex Solutions introduced the EEK200C Evaluation Kit. The kit enables integrators and OEMs to explore EnOcean wireless energy harvesting technologies within the context of their own buildings. Encapsulated in the kit are the building blocks critical to fully integrated systems: energy generation, energy conditioning and storage, sensor power balance, low power timers and also a microprocessor for OEM custom development. These are the same components that have enabled automated energy management in more than 100,000 buildings worldwide. System integrators can simulate sensor applications in any environment without any programming or configuration. The Echoflex Evaluation Kit contains a solar-powered temperature sensor, set point adjustment and reed switch (magnet contact). The radio modules are powered by two ambient sources – infinite wells of solar and motion energy. Integrated energy harvesting ensures full functionality of the solar-powered STM sensor modules even after days in complete darkness.
