POY Finalist: Battery-less push buttons
Finalist in Automation and Control in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The Harmony XB5R is a battery-less push button that offers freedom and mobility for plant personnel by eliminating wires. This functionality becomes invaluable in industrial environments where personnel and equipment rarely stay stationary, such as conveyance machines in automotive, mining, and logistics applications and palletizers. Features include wireless signals that can be passed through doors, walls, and floors. The operator can remotely control machines at a distance of up to 25 m. Equipment operators have the added option to send a one-time radio message to one or multiple receivers, or sync up to 32 push buttons with one receiver.
