Tanita will release two models of non-contact timers "TD-421" and "TD-422" that can be operated without touching them on November 4th. The price is open.
The feature of this product is that the non-contact sensor mounted on the main body detects the movement of the hand and can stop and start the timer. Since it can be operated with dirty or wet hands, it can be used hygienically and work efficiency is improved.
In addition, the volume and ringing time can be changed, and it can be used in various situations such as a timer that measures the hand-washing time of 30 seconds and a timer for learning. It also supports a setting that does not react the sensor until the alarm sounds so that it will not be accidentally stopped while the timer is operating. The "TD-422" is also equipped with a waterproof function (waterproof protection class IP x 5) and can be washed with water.
The timer is a countdown method and the maximum set time is 99 minutes 59 seconds (in 1 second units). The main body size is width 90 x height 110 x depth 24 mm, and weighs about 153 g (including batteries). Two color variations, white and pink, are available.
