WAGO: Easily integrate EnOcean sensors and actuators
The EnOcean wireless sensor protocol has established itself as the standard in the building industry above all because it allows use of battery-free sensors and control elements – for example, in room automation, lighting systems and many other applications. The energy for wireless transmission is usually generated via energy harvesting.
WAGO is now launching the EnOcean gateway RS-485 (Item Number 750-940) that can be connected very easily to the WAGO I/O System 750 via a serial interface, with either a serial module of the WAGO I/O System or a controller with an integrated serial interface. The use of standard protocols like Modbus and ESP-3 simplifies bidirectional communication between the I/O System and the EnOcean modules. Serial transfer also allows long cable lengths, so the gateway can be installed far from the I/O System. This is especially important when the engineering room in which the controller and I/O System are located is farther away. The intelligent design also permits mounting in a visible location, such as on a wall or ceiling.
