PicoVit – EnOcean® Proximity switch & Eltako wireless actuator FSR61NP-230V

The PicoVit is a wireless, flexible proximity switch that enables non-contact switching and dimming, and can even detect through glass and even thermo-insulated glass. Combined with the Eltako wireless actuator FSR61NP-230V, an EnOcean® capable impulse switch for wall enclosures, you can control and switch electrical consumers (e.g. a wall light) with a simple “wave” or “approach” hand gesture.

The simple installation enables the connectivity of further EnOcean® compatible switches and sensors (max. 35) and offers various functions, like automatically switching off after a parametrized duration.

The wireless actuator can also be setup as a repeater which enables a greater range for the EnOcean® wireless network.

In Set:

  • Plug-n-Play – Fast, cable-free installation
  • Contactless switching through glass – Hands-Free, hygienic, flexible
  • Extremely low energy consumption – environmentally friendly, maintenance free
  • Compatible, multi-functional and maintenance-free – broad application field

Eltako wireless actuator, impulse switch FSR61NP-230V:

  • Low self-consumption (< 0,8 W) – energy efficient power adaptor
  • Repeater-function – Extend the wireless range of other EnOcean® compatible products
  • Individual transmitter-parameters– individual functions for each transmitter
  • Variable operation modes – Relay switches, impulse switches, timers

After installation of the wireless actuator by a qualified electrician, the supplied PicoVit and any other EnOcean® compatible switches or sensors (max 35) can be taught in, in seconds. An individual function can be selected for each transmitter. The following functions and operating modes can be selected:

PicoVit functions

  • Universal switch
  • Central off
  • Central on

PicoVit operation modes

  • Relay switch (with safety timer)

Impulse switch (also with continuous light function and / or switch-off warning)

In addition, the actuator can be used with other compatible components for the following functions

  • Scene button
  • Directional switch

For example, after teaching the EnOcean® proximity switch PicoVit, it can be used as a universal toggle switch, you can turn the consumer controlled by the actuator on and off by simply “waving” or “approaching” the switch with your hand, to do this, the actuator should be set to ESV mode and the lower rotary switch is set to ∞ (continuous). If a time value is set, you can also switch on the consumer by “waving” or “approaching” with your hand. However, the power supply to the connected load will be automatically switched off after the selected runtime has expired or interrupted by another hand gesture. A new “wave” or “approach” during the runtime switches the consumer either off again. This function is particularly useful for interactive window displays or vitrines.

In addition to the Eltako wireless actuator FSR61NP-230V included in this set, there are a variety of other EnOcean® capable actuators in various designs (e.g. Smart Plugs for mains outlets) that you can teach and “Dotten” with the PicoVit. A few application examples, as well as information on the integration possibilities of the two products in existing EnOcean® alternative systems can be found under the “Compatibility” sub-menu.

Areas of application

The actuator is intended for indoor use only. It may only be installed by a qualified electrician, as otherwise there is a risk of fire or electric shock. Information on consumer loads can be found in the “Technical Data” sub-menu, amongst other things.


The PicoVit can be used both with the Eltako FSR61NP-230V wireless actuator, and also in combination with other EnOcean compatible receivers in the following application areas:


  • Private houses & apartments
  • Office buildings
  • Department stores & shops
  • Public buildings
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Kitchens & Restaurants
  • Other areas with high hygiene standards


Application examples


The combination of the PicoVit with the actuator is already used in various installations as a:

  • Interactive control of devices in window diplays and vitrines
  • Light switch
  • Mains shut off switch
  • Presence detector


The PicoVit together with the actuator and other products from the PicoControls family are particularly suitable for retrofits, renovations and in listed buildings.

Eltako wireless actuator FSR61NP-230 V:

The actuator can control consumers in a 230V  network with a consumption of up to 2000 W. For more detailed information on the switching performance for halogen lamps, motors or other non-ohmic loads, please refer to the “Technical Data” sub-menu or the manual of the Eltako FSR61NP-230 V wireless actuator.

All proximity switches from the Picosens PicoControls series can be used to control the actuator. In addition, there are also numerous other EnOcean® compatible switches and sensors that are compatible with the Eltako FSR61NP-230 V wireless actuator.

Integration into existing systems

The actuator and also the PicoVit can also be integrated into existing building control systems via so-called gateways. There are various gateways that translate EnOcean® communication into home automation systems such as KNX, DALI, … or other common bus systems such as USB. For the home automation area, EnOcean® over WLAN gateways are also interesting.
