HyTronic touchless sensor taps by Geberit

Geberit has introduced new sustainable products for commercial applications. Geberit’s touchless sensor taps – HyTronic 185/186 – produce their own power. The flowing water generates power to recharge the units, eliminating the need for a mains supply and standby power consumption. They are ideal for sustainable projects.

A small generator makes the taps independent from the mains power supply or battery. Whenever the tap is in use, the flowing water charges the accumulator via the hydro-electric turbine, which produces electricity.

According to Geberit, this system reduces the ecological impact by 50% compared to the use of batteries and 80% compared to an electrical connection.
