Self-disinfecting switches, sockets from Schneider


Schneider Electric on August 20 announced the launch of its anti-bacterial and self-disinfecting switches and sockets under its Livia product range.

Powered by the Silver Ion technology which can kill over 99.9 percent bacteria and fungi, these products have been conceptualized and manufactured in India as a part of Schneider Electric’s commitments towards ‘Make in India’ aimed at making an Atmanirbhar Bharat, said a press release issued by the company.

Meeting international standards of testing, this anti-bacterial range of products self-disinfects its surface throughout its lifespan and uses Silver Ion technology which incorporates anti-bacterial additive compounds in the products inhibiting the growth of bacteria and fungi on frequently-touched switches and cover frames, added the release.

Commenting on the launch, Srinivas Shanbhogue, V-P, Home and Distribution, Schneider Electric India, said, “Livia range of anti-bacterial switches and sockets are our latest innovation in the connected living device category. These products will be one of the defining solutions that will shape the buildings of the future and ensure a modern, healthy lifestyle.”
