logo_enocean-allianceWhy you should know about EnOcean Wireless Sensors: As I prepare for my second day of training on Can2Go ddc controllers I am getting a new appreciation for EnOcean wireless products. They are energy harvesting sensors, which means you do not have to power them. So no power supplies and no batteries. This also means you can move them to different locations very easily, which makes them very flexible. Stromquist & Company is now representing Thermokon, the leading manufacturer of EnOcean sensors. We can’t wait for our inventory to arrive, so we can start providing our customers with this great technology.

He was an immigrant to the United States who settled in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1864, finding work as a steamfitter and plumber. In 1885, he opened his own plumbing shop.
