The ndite technology converts restroom lighting to energy, which provides power to the sensors and valves on the Express‚ SS and MG Series lavatory systems. It uses photovoltaic cells integrated into the top of the system to convert light into electricity. Whether natural light or normal room-level lighting, the cells capture light when it is available and store the energy for later use in a battery-free system. It eliminates the need for electrical hook-ups.
