environmentally friendly, sustainable products combining energy
efficiency plus comfort and convenience in a building. For Hubbell,
as a market leader in lighting control for building automation, it
was the next logical step to embrace the innovative EnOcean
technology and join the strong eco-system of the EnOcean Alliance,"

Automation, Inc.  
"We sincerely appreciate Hubbell embracing EnOcean technology and
joining the alliance," says Jim O'Callaghan, President of EnOcean
Inc. "This commitment affirms the adoption of energy harvesting
wireless technology in the building automation market." 
The wiSTAR product line includes batteryless occupancy sensors, light
switches, photocells, a key card switch and load control modules
incorporating EnOcean's energy harvesting wireless technology. The
switch and sensor products work completely without batteries, powered
only by energy converters, which make them maintenance-free.  
All wiSTAR products use the new 902 MHz frequency, which EnOcean has
recently introduced to the North American market for its self-powered
wireless techno
logy. It offers greater range and robust performance
enabling lighting control with reliable, long-range wireless and
batteryless communication.
