- Contactless switching – Hands-Free, hygienic, flexible, clean walls…
- 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 10cm distance, the PicoWave 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 “wave”. A few examples, and information to the integration possibilities of the optical proximity switch in alternative non-EnOcean® systems can be found in the sub-menu “Compatibility”.
Built in the NOVA design case, the optical proximity switch has been designed specifically for extremely low power 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 PicoWave 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 PicoWave 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.
The optical system is self-calibrating. If you attach the optical proximity switch so that fixed objects remain in the detection area, they will be calibrated out after 10 seconds and you can use the switch as usual. Dust and other infrared layers are also calibrated out.
Areas of Application
You can use the optical proximity switch based on the PicoClick in many applications. Currently it is used among other things in:
- Private houses & apartments
- Office buildings
- Shops & businesses
- Public buildings
- Kitchens & Restaurants
- Areas with high hygiene standards
From simple control of luminaires with switchable sockets, flush-mounted relays or DIN rail mounted DIN rail mounted devices, to the control of blinds, to the integration in more complex systems, everything is possible with the optical proximity sensor. A few examples, and information to the integration possibilities of the PicoWave in alternative “non-EnOcean®” systems can be found in the sub-menu “Compatibility”.
In various installations, the combination of PicoWave with flush-mounted and DIN rail mounted devices is already used:
- Light switch, control
• Blind control
• Control of motorized roof hatches
• Control of sliding doors
The application possibilities of the optical proximity switch are endless.
Particularly suitable is the optical proximity switch and other products from the PicoControls family for use in which electrical installations under plaster are not desired or not possible, such as, for example. in the renovation and retrofitting of facilities in listed buildings, schools, hospitals, villas, offices and homes…
The technical heart of the NOVA-designed optical proximity switch is the PicoClick. Below is a list of examples of EnOcean® actuators that can be used with the PicoClick 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 PicoClick, can be found at picosens.de/EnOcean.

Integration into existing systems
The optical proximity switch 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.
