Flowing water generates power to recharge Geberit’s HyTronic taps.

HyTronic Sensor tap by Geberit

Geberit has introduced a sustainable product with a 6 Star WELS rating for commercial applications. Geberit’s HyTronic 185/186 touchless sensor taps produce their own power. The flowing water generates power to recharge the units, eliminating the need for a mains supply and standby power consumption, which makes them ideal for sustainable projects.

A small generator allows the taps to remain independent from the mains power supply or battery. When the tap is in use, the flowing water charges the accumulator via the hydroelectric turbine, which produces electricity. It reduces the ecological impact by 50% compared to the use of batteries and 80% compared to an electrical connection.
