Wireless Communication

Wireless communication is becoming more and more common in automation systems, BACnet, KNX etc. It integrates into different communication protocols such as. Wireless communication has become more important, especially as applications become more and more mobile.

Why Wireless Communication

  • New possibilities Applications that cannot be done without radio communication Example: mobile systems
  • Cost reduction
  • change of cable
  • Connection and commissioning costs

Where can I use it?

  • Critical transmission (Scraper – Electric rotating systems)
  • Mobile applications (automated systems, robot applications, cranes)
  • Ever-changing apps
  • Building automation (EnOcean-Switch and sensors etc.)

What are Wireless Systems?

  • Bluetooth
  • ZigBee
  • EnOcean
  • RFID
  • WLAN
  • Wireless hart
  • Z-wave …

In wireless communication;

  • Wireless transmission of information
  • Information carrier electromagnetic wave (EMW)
  • EMW is propagated by light velocity and is dependent on frequency and amplitude
  • Propagation is linear only in vacuum environments and exposed to interference effects in terrestrial environments

  • Frequency Hopping Scattered Spectrum
  • (FHSS), max.1600 hops / s over 79 channels 1 MHz
  • Very robust and narrow interference tape


  • Dep. Band 30 – 1000mW permissible EIRP (max 100 mW with 2.5 GHz)
  • Unlicensed ISM-Band 2.4- 3.4 (b / g) or 5 GHz (a / h)
  • 2.4 GHz Band 11 channels, only 3 (25 MHz Bandbreite) are provided without overlap
  • Data rates: 1-108 Mbit gross


  • SRD-Frequency band (Duty Cycle limitation) 868-870 MHz

  • Suitable for battery-free operation
  • Low Data Rates
Wireless Communication

With Enocean technology, you can communicate wirelessly even without batteries.

With WAGO EnOcean wireless technology, it adds value to you technically and aesthetically, integrated into building automation. EnOcean based wireless switches and sensors work with the energy they provide from the environment; The switches convert kinetic energy into electricity during pressing, while the temperature sensor generates electricity with solar.

Each device has its own identification address and communicates with a receiver unit. Although there are low power devices, the signal strength is extremely good. It can communicate up to 300 meters in open area and 30 meters in closed area. The number of companies producing products in the EnOcean protocol is increasing day by day and it is very easy to integrate with WAGO under BACnet or KNX.


  • Multiple Frequency Bands (100 kHz to 2.5 GHz)
  • Applications: Logistics, Tracking, Health, Barcode changes,…
  • Low data rate / Duty Cycle
  • Receiver is always active, Transmitter is almost passive

Bluetooth RF- Transmitter
