American Standard introduces long-life battery system for Selectronic flush valves
Lasting up to 2.5 times longer than a standard sensor battery, the new PWRX long-life battery system is now available for all Selectronic hands-free flush valves from American Standard. The battery is built to last for 10 years, delivering lower cost of ownership for facility owners, managers, and maintenance personnel.
This engineered power pack combines advanced lithium battery chemistry with supercapacitors and other electronics to extend the battery life, reducing the maintenance cost associated with changing batteries. For additional protection, the battery pack includes safety circuitry to prevent overheating in case of a short circuit, protecting the electronics from damage. Existing power options for Selectronic flush valves are a standard CR-P2 lithium battery, as well as hard-wired AC.
