RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, Calif---(BUSINESS WIRE)--OPTEX has created an eco-friendly handicap door switch. For use on Low Energy and Full Power Knowing-Act Doors, the “ENERGY” Switch from OPTEX is the only Wireless push switch available that is powered by a simple push of the switch. That’s right, it’s powered by YOU. The Eco-Friendly OPTEX Energy Harvest Module generates a charge when the switch is pushed, eliminating the need for hardwiring or any batteries. This charge is used to send a wireless signal to activate the door.
The use of this Eco-Friendly switch will effectively eliminate large volumes of batteries from entering our landfills. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), each year Americans throw away more than three billion batteries. That's about 180,000 tons of batteries, and more than 86,000 tons of these are single use alkaline batteries. Imagine, when placed end to end these dead alkaline batteries alone would circle the world at least six times.
In addition, elimination of batteries also reduces the total cost of ownership associated with low energy doors. Low Energy and Knowing-Act Doors are used in many public buildings to allow easier access for those who are physically impaired.
Additionally, this technology can be applied to any application where wireless power is required to operate small devices. OPTEX is eager to find partners with other applications for this technology. Please let us know if you have an application that could benefit from this technology.
Let the OPTEX “ENERGY” Switch be your Eco-Friendly Choice. For more information about the “ENERGY” Switch, call OPTEX Inc. at 800-877-6656.
