Wall mount sensor FAUCET
Wall mount sensor faucet or also called wall mounted automatic faucet, touchless faucet wall mount, mainly used in public washrooms which is installed concealed inside the wall. The sensor faucet integrates the infrared sensor in the spout, solenoid valve inside the faucet body. When people getting close to the faucet, put the hand in the sensor detects area will activate the water flow, and the water will stop when you take your hand away.

Instructions for use:
1. Sensor/flow test
When the unit is powered on, water should flow immediately when you put your hands within range of the sensor. When you remove your hands out range the water should stop immediately.
The maximum duration of continuous flow is 1 minute.
2. Sensor range
The default factory set distance is 12~15 cm. When powered on for the first time, place your hands at the desired distance within 5 seconds after the power has been switched on and remove your hands after approx 2 seconds in order to change the factory setting.
To reset the setting, interrupt power for at least 30 seconds and follow the procedure as described to set the sensor range correctly.
3. Water filter
To prevent blockage please clean the water filter regularly, make sure you shut off the water mains, unscrew the water inlet hose, remove the strainer, clean with water and a soft brush. Then install the items in reverse order, turn on water mains and check for leakage.
Uses of wall mounted sensor faucet and how it works
The uses of wall mount sensor faucet came into existence with the development of technology and were widely popular across public washrooms. There is also little evidence that the use of such faucets helped in the reduction of the spread of disease-causing microbes, it can prevent the spread of bacteria and germs. Besides, a touchless faucet reduces overall water usage without sacrificing water. It can prevent people especially the kids forget to turn off the faucet and cause wasting of water.
Infrared sensors for wall mount touchless faucets
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.
KEGE Infrared sensors are designed especially for the wall mount touchless faucets. With the smallest sizes, it can be installed inside the faucet near the spout. When putting hands under the spout, the water will on.
The sensor range and flushing time can be adjusted by a remote controller. What’s more the infrared sensor life span reaches to 500,000 circles,lasting more than 10 years.
Wall mount sensor faucets use infrared sensor technology that allows you to start the flow of water without touching the faucet. Instead, just placing your hand under the spout sensor, the sensor emits infrared beams and receives the reflection beams from the hand. Then it will give the solenoid valve a signal to open and the water will start flow; When you take your hand away, the sensor will indicate the solenoid valve to close, then the water flow will stop.
Why my wall mount sensor faucet not working?
There are many reasons that can cause a wall-mounted sensor faucet not working, no water flow, leakage, and so on. Because of the electricity influence, the reason mainly caused by the sensor, solenoid valve, and batteries.
Wall mounted sensor faucet troubleshooting
|Problem||Possible Reason||Suggested Solution|
|No water flow||Batteries run out||Replace batteries|
|Dirt on sensor surface||Clean the sensor surface|
|Main water supply is shut off||Turn main water supply on|
|Dirt on water filter net||Clean the water filter net|
|Water pressure is not applicable||Refer to technical specification|
|Have a continuous water flow problem||Batteries run out||Replace batteries|
|Low water pressure||Refer to technical specification|
|Having leakage after turning off the faucet||Low water pressure||Refer to technical specification|
|Dirt on water filter net||Clean the water filter net|
Do wall mounted sensor faucets require maintenance?
Maintenance is similar to that of the regular faucet. However, there are a few additional steps that one should take part in due to the presence of electrical components.
- The primary aspect is to keep away from the use of harsh chemicals.
- The second is not to store any chemicals or other stuff near the battery pack.
- The third is not to put the control box or battery box near any electronic products because EMC can influence the function of the sensor working.
It is preferable to arrange a few of the household goods stored underneath the sink to elsewhere to ensure that there is no disturbance. The reason is to prevent an explosion, which only occurs in the worst scenarios. It is likewise essential to dispose of the used battery with care and replace them properly to ensure a protective environment. Reading the installation manual will help one understand the replacement procedure of the battery. They also provide information on troubleshooting.
Advantages of touchless faucets
The significant advantage of a wall mount sensor faucet is cleanliness. The reason is that they are mess-free and solve the majority of the issue that one would have to deal with a regular tap. It helps in the elimination of cross-contamination.
The second factor is water saving. As water shuts off automatically, there is a considerable decrease in the use of water and a reduction in wastage. Additional benefits in such cases help in removing the overflow of a sink, which sometimes occurs due to unclosed facet by accident. They are also a great help for people suffering from mobility limitations.
The third factor is hygienic, bacteria and germs free. Especially during the epidemic outbreak of COV-19.People cared more and more about hygienic sanitary ware. A touchless or touch free faucet can efficiently prevent the spread of bacteria and germs, not only in a public washroom but also in the home bathroom.
