An infrared light beam is reflected back to a sensor on the switch box any time you move your hand, or any body part, within about 5cm of the sensor, triggering the switch activation. The switch comes with a 9Volt plug pack power supply which must be plugged in to a power point.
Extra product information
•Gross movements can trigger the switch
•No pressure is required
•Little accuracy is needed as the reflective beam area covers about 5cm x 8cm
•Audible 'click' feedback as well as visual green LED indicator of switch activation
•The Wave Switch can be placed on its back so that it is activated by waving above it
•The Wave Switch can be placed on its edge so that it is activated by waving beside it - In this position the user could slide their hand across the table and not have to lift it to operate the switch
•The Wave Switch can be mounted
Factors to Consider
Switch activation is sustained as long as the beam is being reflected back (i.e hand or other mass is in the way)
