As the most important part, the work of the sensor is to forward the signals to the valve to turn on the faucet after detecting your hand. Its job is to inform the valve when to start or stop the flow based on the presence or absence of your hands. It has either infrared light or ultrasonic sensors. In most cases, infrared lights sensors are often placed at the tip of the spout.

The sensor KEG-K8804 is suitable for touchless bathroom faucet and touchless wall mount faucet.

  • ITEM: KEG-K8804

Working Principle

Active infrared sensor

Active infrared touchless sensors use the emission and reception of infrared beams to detect the presence and/or movement of objects or people in their field of detection. The technology is ideal for applications requiring a long and narrow detection range.

Infrared Sensor Applications

The infrared sensor is widely used in public washrooms, such as touchless faucets, automatic urinal flusher, automatic toilet flusher and automatic soap dispenser.

The infrared sensors can be also used for touchless kitchen faucets and bathroom faucets. Although they are still optional in homes today. But eventually in the future, they will become a simple commonality for modern homes.
