Kohler is proud to introduce the Hybrid energy system with its world-class Insight™ Touchless faucet portfolio. Coupled together,
these revolutionary technologies are changing the conversation about conservation.

It’s simple, really. Our Hybrid energy system features a hybrid energy cell that provides maintenance-free power for 30 years.
That means no turbines, no photovoltaic cells, no periodic battery replacement. It just works without hassle. Day after day, month
after month, year after year.

Innovative


The Hybrid energy system features
patented technology that prevents
high-current draws, resulting in a
very long life.

Economical


The Hybrid energy system is quick to
install and doesn’t require regular
battery replacement, saving hours of
manual labor and reducing mainte-
nance costs.

Green


The Hybrid energy system is created
with environmentally friendly materials.
And since Insight Touchless faucets run
on Hybrid energy cells, they prevent
untold numbers of alkaline and lithium
batteries from burdening the world’s
landfills.

3 Decades. 3 Stages.


Kohler combines the innovative technology of the Hybrid energy system with the adaptive infrared technology of Insight™ faucets
to offer an extremely long-lasting energy solution. The blend of greater power storage and reduced discharge allows the hybrid
energy cell to power the Hybrid energy system for 30 years. Or, in other words, the hybrid energy cell can complete at least 1.5
million cycles (based on one use every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for 30 years). And here’s how:
 

1. Insight Sensor Technology


Insight sensors feature proprietary circuit technology that
requires only a fraction of the power standard infrared sensors
use. Our patented low-energy-draw sensor technology allows
the faucet to harvest the full potential of the power source.

2. Internal Capacitor


The Hybrid energy system features a hybrid internal capacitor,
which protects against high-current draws and preserves the life
of the hybrid energy cell for 30 years or more.

3. Energy Storage


The Hybrid energy system is uniquely engineered to perform
with little to no self-discharge and store energy significantly
longer than a traditional battery.

Insight™ Touchless Faucets

KOHLER® faucets with Insight technology feature an advanced infrared sensor that adapts to its environment. After analyzing
the surrounding area, Insight technology calibrates the sensor to eliminate false actuations and optimize the faucet’s performance
for decades to come.
