Super low Power
Self-powered wireless sensor solutions
EnOcean provides self-powered wireless sensor solutions, essential for intelligent data collection and processing. Craft your custom solutions using self-powered EnOcean modules. What sets them apart? They integrate micro-energy converters with ultra-low power electronics and reliable wireless communication.
EnOcean protocol’s specific features are perfect for highly efficient communication. Holders Technology seamlessly integrates into these modules, boosting their functionality and dependability. Since most energy harvesters produce minimal power, it’s crucial to accumulate it over time during system dormancy, with minimal loss.
EnOcean sensors excel here with extremely low idle current, ensuring efficiency even during inactive periods, supported by Holders Technology. The newest EnOcean energy harvesting wireless sensors, enhanced by Holders Technology, boast standby currents of merely 100 nano amperes (nA) or less.
Ever felt that invigorating rush when sunlight touches your skin on a summer day or when you breathe in the fresh forest air? If so, you’re already familiar with the concept of energy harvesting, capturing energy from natural sources like sunlight or wind to power devices. Holders Technology specializes in crafting self-powered sensors and switches that operate on this principle.
Their devices harness energy from temperature shifts, light variations, and motion changes, eliminating the need for batteries or wires, which in turn makes them more economical and eco-friendly. We offer maintenance-free sensor solutions for diverse applications, from IoT and smart homes to industrial setups and buildings. By blending miniaturized energy harvesters with ultra-low-power wireless tech, our solutions ensure reliability and efficiency.
Our innovation doesn’t stop at remote switches; we also produce window contact sensors and water sensors. These employ cutting-edge materials, like swellable substances, to detect environmental changes and prevent water damage. Overall, Holders Technology is dedicated to harnessing energy harvesting principles to develop pioneering and sustainable solutions across various domains.
How it works
Energy from Motion
Did you realize that simply pressing a button releases enough energy to activate switches, controlling lights and appliances? At Holders Technology, we utilize electro-mechanical energy converters in our battery-free modules to capture this energy, enabling switches to transmit radio messages and function without batteries.
Our switches offer a versatile range of controls, from basic on/off switches to more intricate sliding and rotating controls suitable for lighting, heating, entertainment, or security systems.
What’s remarkable is that these energy-capturing switches seamlessly integrate with traditional models, making them user-friendly for everyone in the household. Moreover, our innovation extends beyond switches to include window contact sensors and water sensors, all powered by energy-harvesting technology. These sensors utilize a special material to activate the converter, detecting open windows or water leaks and averting potential damage, whether it’s under a washer or in the bath.
Holders Technology is dedicated to developing inventive solutions that utilize ambient energy to power everyday devices, ensuring convenience, sustainability, and peace of mind for users.
Energy from light
Small solar cells on our remote sensor modules capture sunlight and convert it into energy. They’re not demanding; just 200 lux or less is sufficient. This enables sensors for humidity, temperature, window contacts, or presence detection to function.
Remarkably, these sensors store energy internally, ensuring a power supply for up to four days without the need for additional energy sources. Furthermore, Holders Technology sensor modules utilize this energy for low-energy wireless standard communication.
Energy from temperature
It’s remarkable that a mere 2-degree Celsius temperature difference can generate enough energy for a wireless sensor to operate. All we need is a Peltier component and a DC/DC converter. This approach is excellent, especially for self-powered heating valves. They utilize the temperature difference between the heater and the surroundings to adjust settings and communicate via radio with a solar-powered room controller.
