Cross-industry poll delivers landslide victory for ECT 310, EnOcean’s advanced thermal energy harvesting module enabling greener buildings, factories and homes

Oberhaching, Germany, 19 December 2011 – Since April 2011, Electronics Weekly readers have been voting in the Product Innovation category for the 2011 Elektra Awards. As polling closed this month, EnOcean’s ECT 310 module for harvesting thermal energy secured a winning margin of more than 26%. Its creators attended the Elektra Awards evening on 14 December to collect the prize.

The Elektra Product Innovation award invites electronics professionals to nominate the product that they feel has contributed the most to moving technology forward and adding value for users, choosing from a shortlist of candidates. EnOcean’s competitors for the title included a platform for developing wireless medical monitoring devices as well as software and end-user products from extremely well known consumer technology brands.

“The uniquely open and democratic voting process makes winning an Elektra Award extremely important,” said Andreas Schneider, Chief Marketing Officer & Co-Founder of EnOcean. “We are delighted to receive this recognition from the electronics community for our energy harvesting technologies that improve the ability to monitor, manage and utilise precious resources in green buildings and many other applications.”

EnOcean’s ECT 310 is an ultra low power DC/DC converter that enables wireless communication modules to be powered using the energy contained in heat from sources such as radiators, industrial equipment or processes, or even the human body. The module converts the very low-voltage output of a thermoelectric sensor into a voltage of 3V-4V suitable for powering one of EnOcean’s low-energy wireless ICs. By enabling the wireless device to be powered by ambient thermal energy, the ECT 310 frees engineers to create large networks completely free of the need to provide power connections to each node or to install batteries which have a finite lifetime and therefore may need to be replaced.

By introducing the ECT 310 in late 2010 EnOcean expanded its portfolio of energy harvesting solutions that enable engineers to use heat, solar or kinetic energy to power batteryless sensors or actuators built using wireless sensor modules such as its STM 300 or STM 310 series. Product manufacturers can quickly begin developing their own heat-powered, energy harvesting solutions for applications such as building and industrial automation using the EDK 312 Developer Kit. The kit includes the ECT 310 as well as a thermoelectric converter and STM 300 and STM 312 wireless modules, with comprehensive documentation and integration support.

The ECT 310 is a part of EnOcean’s large portfolio of energy conversion, power-management, sensing and transceiver devices, and complete subsystem modules, comprising its Dolphin system architecture for energy harvesting sensors and wireless sensor networks.
