Energy Harvester from ZF for Windows and Doors

Installed in applications for windows and doors, the Energy Harvester from ZF contribute to energy efficiency and building security. They monitor if a window is open or closed and prevent for example the waste of heating energy. By RF technology, the current status of a window will be reported to the building technology and when the window is open, the heating or air-condition will turn down. If a window or door has not been closed, this information can also be checked on a central unit. Thus, the effort for the guard duty of big commercial buildings will be reduced. 

By each actuation of the ZF Energy Harvester, sufficient energy for the transmission of a RF protocol is generated. The connected radio electronics transfers the status information to a receiver unit. So, window handle, window latch or door lock inform with every opening and closing about the change of status.

The completely battery-free and wireless technology from ZF is free of maintenance and flexible in use. It can be realized with different RF protocols such as Bluetooth®, EnOcean® or customer-specific RF protocols.

Energy harvesting switches from ZF are a smart, energy-saving solution for the smart home.

At Light + Building in Frankfurt from 3rd to 8th March 2024, ZF presents different applications for the status monitoring of windows and doors (Hall 9.0, Stand E21).
