Energy Harvesting by ZF – Committing to a Sustainable Technology

Auerbach. In recent years, the topic of sustainability has gained enormous importance throughout ZF. Our greatest impact worldwide lies in the technologies we provide.

Energy harvesting technology is part of this commitment to provide an alternative solution to an ever-increasing world of smart home technology, building automation and industrial installations.

ZF’s battery-free and wireless RF pushbutton module is now being celebrated with the launch of ZF’s stamp ‘Energy Harvesting by ZF’. Partners can use ZF’s new stamp to help market their products using the compact generator by highlighting their commitment to a sustainable technology.


Wireless. Battery-free. Maintenance-free.

A tiny and compact generator (20.1 x 7.3 x 14.3 mm) produces enough energy by pressing the button by means of induction, so that it can reliably transmit RF commands to a paired receiver. As a wireless solution it guarantees flexibility and the possibility to retrofit easily according to individual requirements. As a battery-free solution and with a lifetime of 1,000,000 switching cycles, maintenance and disposal requirements of battery replacements can be avoided.

The RF light switch module from ZF is the only one which is directly compatible with the RF standard KNX-RF and it supports the RF standard EnOcean3.0 too. In cooperation with onsemi, ZF has published a reference design for an Energy Harvesting Bluetooth5.0® Low Energy switch and a demo light switch module. It is compatible with standard frames and can also be combined with customer-specific control and design panels.
