EnOcean Adds IoT Starter Kit to Product Portfolio
EnOcean’s new IoT starter kit offers a simple solution for testing EnOcean wireless sensors with Aruba Wi-Fi® access points.
EnOcean and Aruba
EnOcean, a pioneer of energy harvesting and wireless IoT communications, has released a starter kit that simplifies the integration of EnOcean wireless sensors with Aruba Wi-Fi access points. Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, and EnOcean have partnered to facilitate the integration of IoT sensors into existing IT infrastructure, levering IT security mechanisms to protect IoT data and devices. Used in conjunction with a separately purchased Aruba access point, the new IoT starter kit named EISKU for the North American market includes an EnOcean EMSIU multisensor, an Easyfit wireless switch, an EnOcean USB stick, and demonstration software. All devices support the EnOcean radio standard (ISO/IEC 14543-3-10/11).
EnOcean USB stick is compatible with any Aruba Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 access point with a USB port that is running ArubaOS 8.7 software. Aruba’s Zero-Trust Network automatically establishes a secure data connection between EnOcean-compatible devices and the IoT application. The design eliminates the need for gateways, significantly reducing the cost of IoT projects.
EnOcean’s energy harvesting sensors generate energy from light, movement, or temperature, eliminating the need for batteries or power wiring. The EMSIU multisensor combines temperature, humidity, light level, acceleration, and magnet contact sensors, making it well suited for a variety of IoT and smart building applications. An integrated near field communication (NFC) interface enables the multisensor to be configured and commissioned quickly and easily. The wireless Easyfit “Battery-free by EnOcean” energy harvesting switch can be placed anywhere lighting control is needed, including architecturally sensitive areas that are difficult to wire, such as glass, marble, reinforced concrete, and room dividers.
The North American EISKU Starter Kit includes an EnOcean USB 500U, the solar-powered EMSIU multisensor, an Easyfit EDRPU double rocker switch, an ETHSU temperature and humidity sensor, and an EMCSU magnet contact sensor. The demonstration software includes dashboards to show control activity in real-time.
