Thanks to their low thermal mass, thick film heating elements offer increased performance and energy efficiency compared to conventional heating elements.
On average a Ferro Thick Film Heating element when used in a kettle is 10% more energy efficient compared to a mechanical heating element. Their low weight also makes the kettle easier for the end user to handle.
Ferro Thick Film Heating elements can be supplied as a fully assembled and tested package with our A1 / CS7 series control fitted.
The Opti-Comms system enables an appliances user interface to be positioned on the cordless base, providing further flexibility in design.
Opti-comms provides reliable transmission of single or multiple sensor signals (temperature, water level etc) through the 360° connector, regardless of docking orientation, via an infra-red optical link.
Opticomms is available with our standard A11 kettle control or our CP84 dishwasher proof connector, enabling new and innovative appliances.
Otters Easifix Sealing system has successfully solved many of the industrial design and assembly issues presented by the latest 360° appliances - and has established itself as an integral part of Otter’s policy of offering reliable and top quality system solutions.
Easifix has been incorporated into many millions of electric jugs and kettles that have sold worldwide.
Part of its success has been its ease of design and tooling, its ease of assembly and disassembly, and its relative low cost compared with many other systems.
