Non-touch taps and showers use capacitance sensors

Sirrus by Gummers,  DHW, domestic hot water, non-touch tap and shower

Sirrus by Gummers has introduced a new generation of non-touch controls for taps and showers. The Pulse 8 range has capacitance sensors that are now more sensitive to compete on with infra-red applications. It is suitable for a wide variety of commercial, leisure, health and institutional installations.

Capacitance technology is said to be far more resistant to vandalism, nuisance or accidental operation — all of which can lead to water being wasted. Attempts to vandalise a unit by wrapping material around a tap will be detected, so that the water flow will be interrupted and the sensor reset itself.

Over-run time is variable and can be set on site. Taps are supplied programmed with a clean flush that runs for two seconds after hands have been removed to clean the hand basin or trough

Handwash, which can be used with an individual wall plate, has a 15 s over-run time. Showers can use the 15 s setting or the more suitable 60 s shower time.

The range consists of two non-touch basin spouts, a remote sensor plate and a power pack for wiring to the mains. A battery pack is available.
