The new “Battery-free by EnOcean” logo marks self-powered wireless switch solutions based on the EnOcean technology. It allows private users to readily identify the associated benefits: operation without batteries or cables, maintenance-free design, flexibility and comfort.

Effective immediately, manufacturers can use the new logo to advertise their self-powered wireless switches that integrate the EnOcean energy-harvesting technology for wireless standards, such as EnOcean, Bluetooth® and Zigbee. The added value is obvious: At a glance, the logo generates interest among private users for the benefits of wireless switches.

The certification process involves only five steps:

Step 1: The manufacturer determines whether the product meets the defined criteria of self-powered operation. These criteria can be found at: www.enocean.com.

Step 2: The switch manufacturer obtains the application form from the responsible program manager under info@enocean.com.

Step 3: EnOcean carries out the qualification process, based on the submitted product examples.

Step 4: EnOcean provides the certificate, along with the “Battery-free by EnOcean“ logo and the brand guidelines.

Step 5: The manufacturer is now free to use the logo on product packaging, his website and in data sheets and brochures.
