Canon launches anti-bacterial calculator
Dubai, December 3, 2009
Canon Middle East has launched an ‘anti-bacterial calculator’ which inhibits the growth of microbes and bacteria.
The new calculator HS-121TGA includes a germ fighting agent mixed into the plastic on its keys and upper casing which inhibits the growth of bacteria.
The HS-121TGA, which comes in shiny black and white, is ideal for hospitals, schools, restaurants, offices or in the home and can be passed to grubby-fingered colleagues without a second thought.
“Our unique, next generation calculator range has been designed with both people and the environment in mind,” said Sam Oomen, product manager, Canon Middle East.
“The introduction of an anti-bacterial agent on the HS-121TGA prevents the passage of germs and bacteria most commonly transferred via people’s hands. We hope that number crunching consumers who use the product will appreciate the benefits of working in a safer, healthier environment,” he added.
Canon’s designers have created the HS-121TGA to be green as well as clean by using anti-bacterial materials and recycled Canon copiers in the construction. The lower casing is made from 100 per cent recycled plastic from Canon photocopiers.
The calculator also includes a dual power source with solar and replaceable battery power to extend the product life and reduce waste. Dual solar powered calculators include back up batteries but often when these run out consumers replace the product rather than the batteries. Canon has introduced an easily replaceable battery to discourage this.
The bacteria-fighting HS-121TGA follows Canon’s corporate philosophy of Kyosei to minimise environmental impact, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
