Harvesting award for MK

MK Electric's Echo has picked up the award for best application of energy harvesting in a product at the inaugural IDTechEx Energy Harvesting Awards.

Harvesting award for MK

The wireless, batteryless and self-powered range of switches was deemed the winner because of its commercial success to date. It is gaining rapid market acceptance and volumes are set to grow as wireless switching becomes the norm in residential and commercial applications.

Echo switches harvest tiny amounts of ambient energy to wirelessly operate lighting at ranges of typically up to 30 metres within buildings. The benefits of such technology - combined with MK Electric's market-leading wiring devices and accessories - include almost instant switch installation; total location flexibility of light switches within buildings; and easy relocation, re-installation and considerable cost-savings when 'churning' office and other commercial spaces.
The range boasts incredibly low maintenance thanks to the lack of batteries (that would need replacing and disposing of) and lack of wiring in the wall.
