Wireless Sensor Networks And Energy Harvesting With EnOcean Technology

EnOcean Alliance are over 100 circle of companies that are committed to drive forward battery free EnOcean technology contributing to the field of wireless sensor networks and energy harvesting.
EnOceans energy harvesting and radio technologies allow the innovation and implementation of realizing cost- and energy-efficient systems for a variety of different applications. These include building automation as well as management of infrastructure, logistics and services in the healthcare sector. With full expertise and the cooperation with the partners within the EnOcean Alliance they are able to give these systems a further growth spurt.
In the field of energy harvesting, for example, they develop highly efficient solar cells, for which only room lighting is sufficient for the generation of energy, special capacitors, and modules for wireless communication and power-management-ICs. Moreover the non-volatile memories and the low-power-microcontrollers of Lapis Semiconductor featuring is exceptionally low power consumption. In combination with the sensors of EnOcean, they have all components to build up wireless sensor networks that is supplied via energy harvesting
The goal of EnOcean’s energy harvesting wireless sensor technology is to collects energy where it costs nothing. The energy existing in our environment, for example linear motion, pressure, light, differences in temperature, is converted into energy that can be used electrically. Combining miniaturized energy harvesters and highly efficient wireless technology creates service-free wireless sensor solutions for use in buildings and industrial automation. Below you will see the videos if you are interested in knowing the technology behind this technology.
This video shows how to install the Dolphin toolset (DolphinView, DolphinStudio and DolphinAPI). It shows how to get it from our webpage and deals also with and Keils uVision IDE. It also gives clues where to find help for the tools and development.

This video shows how to write a Hello World application with EVA 300 and TCM 300. It shows the dependencies of the toolsets and it explains how the DolphinStudio should be used with Keil uVision. In this example source code a LED is toggled. The last part of the video shows how to work with the examples and explains the project workspace structure.

This video shows how to setup DolphinView as a sniffer using TCM module. It shows and describes basic DolphinView features like node properties EnOcean Equipment Profile View (EEP View) and telegram log.

This video shows how to configure STM 330 using DolphinStudio and also using HW pins. It also shows the basic functionality of the module like interpreting the received data with DolphinView. Then it shows parts of configuration of STM 31X and STM 300.

This video shows the basic usage of TCM 300 Software. It describes how to switch modes, how to learn in a PTM rocker and very common use cases. After this tutorial usage of standard TCM 300 Software should be clear to understand.
