Card saves energy
Published: 15 October, 2010
Crabtree, part of wiring accessory specialist Electrium, has developed a new range of energy-saving card-operated switches for the hotel market. The switches help to control energy use in hotels by ensuring that electrical devices are not left switched on when rooms are unoccupied.
The Crabtree card switch provides an angled entry for the card and illuminated slot for easy use by occupants. Crabtree’s card switch is operated by a door entry key card up to 86mm x 54mm x 1mm, and controls the power supply to a room via a suitably rated contactor. The switch requires a mounting box of 25mm minimum depth.
