|There are two different kinds of sensing technologies available.
Active Infrared (IR)
Infrared sensing is the standard on all Basys models. When a
user's hands reflect the invisible light beam, the faucet knows to begin the flow of water. Infrared models are designed to provide easy, above-deck access to key components, and offer additional user enhancements
Individual external diagnostic LEDs. All key components - battery, valve caddy and solenoid
- are easily accessible for above-deck service. Can accommodate or upgrade to solar and / or LCD. Adjustable time-out settings. Available with mechanical mixer, integral to spout. Available on all models.
or Surround Sensor Technology (C)
Capacitance sensing utilizes the human body's own natural conductivity. When the faucet senses a hand, it starts the flow of water. There is no sensor window and
critical components are protected in a watertight, belowdeck box. An excellent choice for high-use environments, or when vandalism is a concern.
Individual external diagnostic LEDs. Below-deck components protected in a watertight box. Only two keyed wire connections located between the spout and control module. Self-adapting sensing. Automatic time-out based on flow rate.
Available on Low and Low Integrated Base models.
