Expanded application areas including warehouses and high-ceiling projects.
Oberhaching, Germany, January 22, 2024 – Enabling a new era in energy-efficient lighting control, EnOcean proudly introduces the 2nd generation Bluetooth® switch module PTM 216B. This revolutionary energy harvesting module builds upon the success of its predecessor, the groundbreaking PTM 215B—the world's first energy harvesting Bluetooth® switch module. Setting industry standards for mesh network lighting control solutions, the new PTM 216B signifies a leap forward in technological innovation.
With the new EnOcean PTM 216B module, customers can now address even more applications thanks to the use of the latest generation kinetic harvester ECO 260. The combination of the new harvester with the latest generation system design, allows for more
than double the radio transmission power compared to its highly successful predecessor, the PTM 215B. This significantly increases the usable communication distance.
This enhancement enables control of high-bay lighting, expanding the application areas to include warehouses and architectural projects with high ceilings. PTM 216B brings great flexibility in terms of installation locations and repositioning capabilities. In modern offices
with adaptable layouts and flexible walls, the elimination of wiring significantly streamlines the installation process.
NFC technology for quick and easy integration EnOcean devices such as PTM 216B can be quickly configured using Near Field
Communication (NFC) technology. NFC is a short-range wireless technology that enables communication between devices in close proximity, typically within a few centimeters.
It allows two devices equipped with NFC capabilities to establish a connection by bringing them close together, triggering the exchange of data. A common use is for making contactless payments.
