EnOcean

EnOcean's patented technology allows to send a data packet with small amounts of ambient energy (e.g. a solar cell). The technology is used in building services in the following products: Temperature and humidity sensors, door and window contacts, battery-less light switches, occupancy sensors and light sensors ... The annoying and expensive replacing of batteries belongs here in the past. One of many interesting products is, for example, a sensor that tells you if someone is sitting on a (office) chair. With this information, the workplace lighting can be adjusted or the PC can be put into standby mode.

For communication with IP-Symcon a USB interface (e.g. BSC-BOR, USB300) or a LAN interface (e.g. Thermokon STC or IPS TCM310/TCM515) is required.

For further information about the used technology, and sources of supply you can find on the site of EnOcean. Link: http://www.enocean.com/de

Installation

The EnOcean USB interface must be connected and the virtual ComPort must be present. For LAN gateway a client socket as parent instance must be created. From IP-Symcon 2.5 also gateways with the new ESP3 protocol will be supported. Each protocol can be set in the EnOcean splinter instance.

Installation of TCM310/TCM515

In IP-Symcon / Modul “EnOcean Gateway” Modus: ESP3
and ‘Parent instances’: ‘Client Socket’ with the desired IP adresse and the port: 10001

Tips & Tricks

To eliminate reception problems or to bridge large distances, maximum two repeater of type "TCM 120" can be used.

With Eltako devices the switch actuator must be programmed in the direction switch mode. The dimming actuator can be taught in P, L, C. Use for this the specially designated instance and the teaching button. (From IP-Symcon 2.5)

With bidirectional system of Eltako must also, after the teaching of the device, the feedback address be learned. In Eltako instances can an additional search dialog be started, that turns on an off the device five times to find out the feedback address.

Configuration

If you have not set up your device, please follow the steps on this page: Invalid Link: Include device

Before you start searching, you still need to configure the parent instance by specifying the correct ComPort and apply the configuration. The setting of the baud rate ect. is not necessary, because it is being made ​​by the system automatically.

The search dialog shows a device only when data has been received. With a push button you can press the buttons to display a broadcast transmission. With temperature sensors, you should wait for the next interval, or specify the ID manually.

Once you specify an ID, you must apply the configuration. Thus also the corresponding state variables are created automatically. Example PTM250/ 4-way push button:
