Johnson Electric Launches Auto Power-Off Switches for Coffee Machines - Zero Stand-by Power for Energy Savings

Hong Kong, 20 June, 2013 – Johnson Electric today announced an extension to the TIPPMATIC® switch product line. Three TIPPMATIC switches have been custom designed for use in all types of coffee machines. The new TIPPMATIC pushbutton switches are configured with features for use in filter, capsule, espresso and fully automatic coffee machines. These pushbutton switches are compact and can be customized to match the human factors and design requirements of the coffee machine.

In addition to the automatic power-off feature, the TIPPMATIC switch is available with a double disconnect feature which reduces the stand-by current of the coffee machine to zero. This disconnect feature also further improves the safety characteristics of the machine. The TIPPMATIC pushbutton switches for coffee machines expand the existing rocker switch product line.

  • TIPPMATIC Timer with an internal timer is designed for filter coffee. The switch can be configured for a wide range of automatic power-off times.
  • TIPPMATIC iF has an interface for an externally provided shut-off signal, generated by the electronics in fully automatic coffee machines.
  • TIPPMATIC iFD features a double disconnect technology with an integrated interface for an externally provided shut-off signal, generated by the electronics in fully automatic coffee machines.

“The cumulative impact of reducing stand-by power to zero is highly significant,” said Jim Dick, Johnson Electric’s senior vice president of Strategic Marketing. “Consumer peace of mind results by knowing that an appliance will automatically be switched-off in their absence,” he added.
