Schneider Electric, the leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, today announced the launch of its anti-bacterial and self-disinfecting switches and sockets under its Livia product range. Powered by the Silver Ion technology which can kill over 99.9% bacteria and fungi, these products have been conceptualised and manufactured in India as a part of Schneider Electric’s commitments towards ‘Make in India’ aimed at making an Atmanirbhar Bharat.
