This board is no longer in production. Please use the Grove Enocean with a Grove Kit that have the same functionality.
This carrier board is a great tool to create Smart building automation based on Flyport programmable modules. Create a low cost Internet gateway for EnOcean devices to access your home using a Smartphone or a Tablet.
2 versions available: 868Mhz (EnOcean transceiver TCM-310) or 315Mhz (EnOcean transceiver TCM-310C) connected to Flyport using UART port.
The source code available let's you send/receive EnOcean telegrams to/from the devices.
EnOcean is a wireless standard for Home Automation devices, see enocean home page
The main advantage of this technology is the installation it's very easy (no wires and no masonry works needed)
EnOcean modules combine micro-energy converters with ultra low power electronics and reliable wireless communications.
This enables EnOcean customers to create self-powered wireless sensor solutions that are fundamental for efficiently managing energy in buildings and industrial applications.
The idea that led to this innovative technology is based on a very simple observation: where sensors capture measured values, the energy state constantly changes. When a switch is pressed, the temperature alters or the luminance level varies. All these operations generate enough energy to transmit wireless signals.
More than 900 end user devices available from EnOcean alliance members, such as: buttons, temperature sensors, electrical plugs, proximity sensors and more.
Powered by 5V on DC connector (power supply not included). On board is a 6 ways male pinstrip connector that fits the MiniUSB Programmer to download firmware to the Flyport module.
Flyport mounting instructions
Flyport modules have 1 or 2 male connectors: J1 and J2.
On this carrier board there are 2 female connectors: J1 and J2.
The right way to mount Flyport on the carrier board is: J1 must be plugged on J1 while J2 on J2.
