PicoVit – EnOcean® Proximity switch for glass surfaces

99.80 inkl. MwSt.

The PicoVit is a wireless, flexible proximity switch that can detect through glass and even thermo-insulated glass.

It enables the contactless switching and dimming of lighting and switchable plug sockets to name just a few applications.  Therefore, the PicoVit is ideal for applications in shop windows, vitrines and also sliding and glass doors in shops and at home. The clever wireless switch optically detects motion via Red light and communicates over the EnOcean® wireless Standard with other EnOcean® compatible products which can be easily and quickly taught and connected.

Description

  • Contactless switching through glass – Hands-Free, hygienic, flexible …
  • Plug-n-Play – fast, wire free installation, connected in seconds
  • Extremely low energy consumption – environmentally friendly, maintenance free
  • Extraneous light independent, self-calibrating, robust, mobile, compatible – broad application field, …

 

Through a simple “wave“ or „approach” of the hand inside an area of around 15cm distance, the PicoVit can control all possible EnOcean® compatible actuators and their connected devices and consumers.

Connect the EnOcean® products within seconds with each other and place the clever and mobile wireless switches cable-free on any glass surface you like. Now for example, you can control your ambiance lighting with an EnOcean® compatible switchable plug socket from anywhere inside the wireless range of around 30meters, turning them on and off and dim them remotely.

There are countless actuators in a variety of forms (e.g. wall enclosure mounting) that can be connected and “Dotted”. A few examples, and information to the integration possibilities of the PicoVit in alternative non-EnOcean® systems can be found in the sub-menu “Compatibility”.

 

Energy saving

The PicoVit was especially developed to have an extremely low energy consumption. The calculated life expectancy of the battery with a normal switching cycle of a typical light switch is approximately 70 years. That batteries today have approximately a 20-25 years physical life expectancy, means that the PicoVit will provide a maintenance free service for this duration.

A battery life expectancy to switching cycles comparison table can be found under the sub-menu “Technical Data “.

 

Extraneous light independence

The PicoVit that recognises a “wave” or “approach” of the hand, can also be operated in full sunlight, because the clever technology can regulate light up to 150,000Lux, which equates to 1.5 times direct sunlight.

 

Self-calibrating

The optical system is self-calibrating. Once the PicoVit is positioned, surrounding stationary objects will be automatically calibrated out inside 10 seconds, the PicoVit can then be used as normal. Dust and other infrared light invisible “layers” are also calibrated out.

Areas of Application

The PicoVit can be utilized in many application areas. Currently the PicoVit is being implemented in the following areas, amongst others:

  • Private houses & apartments
  • Office buildings
  • Shops & businesses
  • Public buildings
  • Hospitals
  • Hotels
  • Kitchens & Restaurants
  • Areas with high hygiene standards

 

Application examples

From the simple control of lights via a switchable plug socket or concealed relay, the control of window blinds up to the control of complex systems, anything is possible with the PicoVit. A few examples, and information to the integration possibilities of the PicoVit in alternative “non-EnOcean®” systems can be found in the sub-menu “Compatibility”.

 

The PicoVit already finds itself in a variety of applications as a:

  • Interactive control of devices in shop windows and vitrines
  • Light switch/dimmer
  • Door opener
  • Illuminated call system button
  • Presence detector

The PicoVit is particularly suitable for simple cable-free installations, like in retro-fitting, building renovations and in conservation protected building.

EnOcean® Actuators

Below is a list of examples of EnOcean® actuators that can be used with the PicoVit to switch different consumers and devices.

A list of all EnOcean® actuators that we have tested, including instructions for setting the function modes for learning the PicoVit, can be found at picosens.de/EnOcean.

 

Integration into existing systems

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.
