|A unique system—"E Connect”— which is an industry first, was released on August 30,2021.|
|This device is designed to operate a shutter or door by connecting it to a hybrid vehicle or portable power outlet.|
|With this system, garage doors and shutters can be operated even during power outages.|
Sanwa Shutter Cooperation (head office: Itabashi-ku, Tokyo; President: Meiji Takayama) released the "E Connect" power supply system for garages in the event of a power outages on August 30.
In recent years, the increase in natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons has led to many wide-spread power outages. "E Connect" for garages enables operation of garage doors and shutters installed in residential garages and store entrances even during power outages.
In the event of a power outage, people are required to wait for the power to be restored or to switch from electric to manual operation for emergency operation, but now they can use their own hybrid vehicle or portable power outlet to supply electricity and operate the garage doors/shutters electrically.
This allows shutters to be opened promptly in the event of a sudden power outage due to an earthquake or typhoon, enabling evacuation and safe use of automobiles. “E Connect,” a system of power supply utilizing a hybrid vehicle or portable power source, is the first of its type in the industry*.
From the customer’s perspective, Sanwa Shutter will continue to provide products based on our mission to contribute to society by providing safety, security, and comfort to meet the diverse needs of our customers.
