Using energy harvesting which is in fact like a small dynamo, the PTM210 is more expensive than modules using battery, so what are its advantages ?

The PTM210 is a push button transmitter module from EnOcean, it enables the implementation of wireless remote controls without batteries. It is already widely used for consumer applications such as the control of LED lighting systems.

Power is provided by the EnOcean ECO200 energy converter, a built-in electro-dynamic power generator. Converting kinetic energy into electrical energy, it works in the same way as a small dynamo, drawing out and delivering this power to a wireless module.


With an equivalent transmission range than systems using batteries (300m without obstacle, 30m indoors), the EnOcean switch announces a possibility of about 100,000 actuations representing a lifetime of 40 years for 7 daily uses. Thus it saves replacing the lithium battery every 3 years on average for systems with battery, a savings of around 13 batteries.


The reverse costing report by System Plus Consulting provides a full teardown of the PTM210/PTM215 wireless modules and of the energy converter, with an estimation of their manufacturing cost.
