Caleffi is now member of EnOcean


In 2014 Caleffi has become a member of EnOcean Alliance, one of the worldwide fastest growing technical alliances, the originator of patented energy harvesting wireless technology. It is a consortium of companies from the world's building sector that has set itself the aim of creating innovative solutions for sustainable buildings.

Along with the membership, Caleffi launches its new smart heating control system WiCal which is based on the EnOcean energy harvesting wireless standard. 


The heating control WiCal fits perfectly into EnOcean's approach. The product includes the central control unit 2101 series that allows managing the wireless heating radiator 2105 series. Both integrate EnOcean energy harvesting wireless technology, enabling intelligent wireless control of the heating for newly constructed or retrofit projects in the building sector. The product line allows for automatically adapting the heat to pre-defined set points and the users’ needs thus saving valuable energy. Due to the wireless operation, the components can be easily integrated into a building automation system, creating more flexibility in system planning and implementation as well as cutting energy use.


From EnOcean official press release:

Significant energy savings

The radio communication is based on the international wireless standard ISO/IEC 14543-3-10, which is optimized for ultra-low power and energy harvesting applications. In buildings, the radio communication offers high robustness and reliability at a maximum range of 30 meters. The use of EnOcean wireless technology enables to achieve savings of as much as 40 percent in energy and operating costs. Components based on this standard are already implemented in over 250,000 buildings worldwide. With its EnOcean-based WiCal system, Caleffi now contributes to the strong ecosystem of the EnOcean Alliance. It’s more than 350 members offer today over 1,200 interoperable products.

The new WiCal line will be presented at MCE14 at the Caleffi Stand A41-51 C42-52, Pad. 7.
