Electronic faucets, more innovative and more appropriate for modern house
Although more common in public spaces, the fittings that work with infrared sensor, so that the water falls when you put your hands under the tap and leaves falling to removing them, are increasingly used in the private sector, due all water saving is achieved with installation.
Rough lines of the first electronic faucets have evolved and refined models are already very suitable place at home, and the new L90 and M3 Rock, that when hybrids also offer the interesting possibility of using them at will, both in manual and automatic mode.
Its operation allows to regulate the water flow and temperature in the manner of use. Depending on the model these regulations are achieved by two different technologies: mixing or progressive. Mixing-in version, one can regulate the temperature and flow rate, while in the progressive version, the temperature control lever, with a constant water flow. In addition the system incorporates Rock “Cold Start” in the progressive versions of the L90 and M3 taps, further enhancing energy efficiency, to start with cold water use.
For automatic operation all models have two options: battery power, which allows easy installation, or with power supply. In all models, the technology allows use in manual mode if a fault occurs in any power, either because the batteries are exhausted or a power failure.
As you can see in the pictures L90 and M3 have two very different aesthetic styles. While the M3, on these lines is a more classic, faucet L90, on the cover, has an architectural design and geometric shaped “L” that is best suited for contemporary bathrooms.
Geberit, meanwhile, also has electronic faucets, 185 and 186 models that, to date, received the energy required for operation of the power supply or battery.
However, the Swiss company has developed a new solution: a small generator mounted directly on the tap tap, which uses water pressure of the pipeline to generate electricity. This electricity is stored in a rechargeable battery, used to supply the energy needed to tap the electronics.
An average of 80 seconds a day to use the tap generates enough power for the rechargeable battery, equivalent to about 20 daily uses. However, the autonomous current generator Geberit is particularly suitable for public areas with an influx of visitors from medium-high, such as airports, stadiums, schools, museums and office buildings basins.
Another interesting point is that along with the generator Geberit awarded an iF design award this year, simplifies the installation work as it requires no wires or outlets, thus erasing the work of coordination and planning among electricians and plumbers .
