The Battery Balancing Act – Technology vs. Application Needs
Electronics are part of everyday life and are prevalent features in commercial buildings today. Even many public restrooms rely on electronics to power electronic fittings, which have become the norm. Sensing technologies based on electronics are most often used for hands-free activation of plumbing fittings such as faucets and flushometers to improve user accessibility in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and improve overall hygiene and restroom cleanliness.
Electronic plumbing fittings offer sanitary, touch-free operation, while conserving water and energy in that they only flush or dispense water when the sensor detects a user.
