Wireless communication opens up new possibilities e.g. for the design of man-machine interfaces. We recognised this early on and can now look back on nearly ten years’ experience in the design of wireless switchgear. Technology platforms and wireless standards have been developed which are perfectly adapted to their application fields.

One development focus is the »Energy Harvesting« principle: the switching devices generate the energy required for the transmission of wireless signals themselves – for example via a solar module or a robust electrodynamic energy generator. For demanding industrial applications different wireless technologies are available.
