“We sincerely appreciate Hubbell embracing EnOcean technology and joining the alliance,” says Jim O’Callaghan, President of EnOcean Inc. “This commitment affirms the adoption of energy harvesting wireless technology in the building automation market.”
wiSTAR product line includes batteryless occupancy sensors, light
switches, photocells, a key card switch and load control modules
incorporating EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless technology. The
switch and sensor products work completely without batteries, powered
only by energy converters, which make them maintenance-free.
wiSTAR products use the new 902 MHz frequency, which EnOcean has
recently introduced to the North American market for its self-powered
wireless technology. It offers greater range and robust performance
enabling lighting control with reliable, long-range wireless and
