The Libero electronic and automatic door opener, designed for use with manufacturer Richelieu’s E-Cargo and Euro Cargo waste bin management systems, provides a hands-free opening system for cabinet-integrated waste bins.
The low-voltage sensor device can be installed to the bottom of a base cabinet, and secured with only four screws. It is ideal for use with frameless base cabinets, according to the manufacturer, as well as top-mounted waste bins and common bottom drawers. It is activated via motion sensor; the drawer opens when the user waves their foot in front of the sensor in the kick board.
An integrated LED light indicates the sensor’s position to the user. The device uses a friction clutch system to identify obstacles and prevent unintended openings, and the force of ejection and lighting sensor status may be controlled via smart phone app.
