Schneider Electric (Raliegh, NC) recently announced a range of wireless and battery-less push buttons. The Harmony XB5R is designed to offer maximum 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 and bottling machines in food and beverage applications. The battery-less solution offers permanent availability, contributes to a greener environment and eliminates the need for battery maintenance, re-charging and re-loading, and recycling costs.
