In the face of shrinking raw energy supply and rising fuel costs, countries around the global are scrambling to develop innovative energy-saving initiatives. One way to tackle this energy issue is to implement the smart grid technology. Smart grids reduce energy consumption, and, therefore, help improve energy efficiency. The placement of a smart grid involves setting up smart watt hour meters (digital watt hour meters) at the premises of the end consumers.
Compared to the traditional mechanical watt hour meters that monitor only energy consumption, digital watt hour meters act as two-way communication channel, delivering electricity usage information between power plants and consumers. With this piece of information now available, consumers are able to better manage their electricity consumption while power plants can study the information to balance, say, the amount of electricity load during rush hours, making smarter choices about how to offer time-based pricing to their customers. Riding the wave of this digital power management trends, Taiwan plans to replace the analog watt hour meters currently used by its 21-million energy consumers with digital watt hour meters before 2014. This initiative will help the consumers save about NTD 81.00 per month and will reduce the overall electricity usage during rush hours by up to 50%.
OncQue, being a trusted name in the Roll Ball Switch production, has not missed out on this trend. In fact, the company has developed various solutions to integrate its Roll Ball Switches with today's digital watt hour meters. The simple feature of ON and OFF signals makes it easy and simple to integrate OncQue's switches into your design, and the feature of accurately operating at low temperatures greatly maintains the operational reliability in extreme environments.

With oil prices rising steadily, the cost of energy is expected to remain high for the foreseeable future. Therefore, improving energy efficiency while reducing carbon emissions has become one of the biggest issues on the human agenda. Saving energy not only helps your pocketbook, it also helps the planet earth. OncQue embraces this energy-saving trend, leveraging more than its ten years experience in the design, manufacturing of Roll Ball Switches to deliver solutions aimed at improving energy efficiency for various application. It's our token of support to help make the planet earth more sustainable.
OncQue's Roll Ball Switches are capable of detecting not only the target object's tilt and vibration, but also it's centrifugal force generated by the action of rotation. By incorporating OncQue's roll ball technology, you can add an automatic switch-on feature to your product's functionality. For battery-powered products, OncQue's Roll Ball Switches makes the transfer of power from the battery to the target unit more energy efficient. To this date, a number of power-saving applications associated with OncQue's Roll Ball Switches are available, such as:
1. Tilt Sensor Switch
A typical application of the Tilt Sensor Switches is remote controller, capable of detecting the tilting of unit at a certain angle. One of the most common features found in today's remote controllers is the backlight function. Devices that incorporated this function provide users the benefit of operating the remote controllers in the dark. Yet the biggest disadvantage is perhaps the cost associated with its excess of power consumption. From a designer's perspective, however, it is important to produce a remote controller which activates only upon user's demand. By incorporating OncQue's Tilt Sensor Switches, designers and manufacturers can easily equip their remote controllers with this automatic switch-on, switch-off functionality. This means that the backlight function is activated only when users pick up the remote controllers. While users placed the remote controllers horizontally, aligning the controllers with the horizontal plane, the Tilt Sensor Switches will deactivate the backlight function automatically.
2. Vibration Sensor Switch
Vibration Sensor Switches detect vibration from any direction. Products embedding the Vibration Sensor Switches consume less energy because the power is used only when the units are activated. One of the key applications is the GPS systems used in automobiles. The Vibration Sensor Switches will synchronously activate the GPS systems upon the detection of the car's vibration when users turned on the ignition systems. This feature helps conserve power because the GPS systems are deactivated while the car's ignition is off. Yet the automatic switch feature delivers consumers energy efficient automobile GPS systems with a sprinkling of human touch design.
3. Centrifugal Force Sensor Switch
The Centrifugal Force Sensor Switches are suitable for applications which require the detection of centrifugal force generated by the rotating objects. These tiny sensor switches integrates well with various physical and electrical properties, enabling designers with the most economical solution to implement centrifugal force detection. Centrifugal Force Sensor Switches may be applied to Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) to fulfill the requirements of power saving. The switches may be installed inside the tire pressure detectors, which are positioned inside or outside of the tires. When tires rotate and generate sufficient centrifugal force, the Centrifugal Force Sensor Switches will instruct tire pressure detectors to send wireless signals to the TPMS. When the centrifugal force generated by the tire's rotation falls below a certain level, the Centrifugal Force Sensor Switches will instruct the tire pressure detectors not to send wireless signals to the TPMS. This means that energy is only consumed by the tire pressure detectors when signals are being sent while the car is moving.

According to the statistics released by Taiwan's National Fire Agency, despite a reduction in the number of fire accidents in 2008 compared to the previous year, accidents caused by electric appliances still ranked the highest, with 33% more in the number of incidents reported compared to those among other types of fire accidents. The data shows rough resemblance to the statistics found elsewhere in the rest parts of the world. As more electronic components are incorporated into the design of electric appliances, more and more manufacturers today see the application of automated safety protection technology as a necessary feature of the future appliance products. Oncque's family of product lines deliver more than just what traditional physical controllers may perform - the detection of sudden tilt or motion of the product units; Our electronic sensor switches are housed on individual printed circuit boards (PCB), offering the added benefits of maximum protection against outside interference, humidity, and rust build-up. The mechanism of combing tilt or vibration detection allows our switches to cut off power supply not only when the tilts occurred but also when huge vibrations are detected. And the manufacturing and maintenance costs by incorporating our products into your projects are lower than the costs of using traditional reed and pendulum witches. With these advantages, our sensor switches will replace the traditional tilt detecting devices for detecting power failures.
