Passive solutions are defined as those which require no human intervention or power systems to operate. Passive solutions eliminate the risk of operations and human failure at the core. Training time and funds are saved for other critical areas. Primarily consisting of a visual inspection, maintenance is quick and easy and can be accomplished with simple hand tools. A 100% passive, fully automatic system operates 24 hours per day, every day of the year, minimizing risk, eliminating human and power dependency, and providing the lowest possible long-term cost.
