--- DISCONTINUED. (Verified 09/2009) RETAINED IN DATABASE FOR REFERENCE. --- The SCATIR (Self-Calibrating Auditory Tone Infrared) Switch is a multipurpose momentary contact switch with auditory feedback designed for individuals who have difficulty activating manual switches. It works by detecting a beam of reflected pulsed infrared light and is suitable for a variety of control gestures, including eye-blink, eyebrow movement, finger movement, head movement, and facial muscle movement. Since the switch works on an optical principle (detecting movement from light), the controlling body part does not need to be in contact with the switch sensor. The range of distance between the body part and the sensor allows for the activation of the SCATIR Switch which can be adjusted, automatically (in self calibration mode) or manually, from about six inches to less than a millimeter. The switch can be activated through a transparent protective or supportive structurem such as a clear plastic tray. It also incoporates an auditory tone source, which emits a high-frequency beep when the switch is activated and can be enabled or disabled. The switch comes with rechargeable battery; charger; and a cable sensor, a gooseneck or both. POWER: Runs on a nine volt battery. and comes with a rechargeable nickel-cadium battery and charger. DIMENSIONS: 2.5 x 6 x 9.5 centimeters.
