Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0882848A2] The hot and cold water mixer tap has a lever, which by means of side and vertical movements controls the mix and volume of delivered water for a set period of time. It also has an infrared sensing element which can detect the existence of an object, such as a hand, to turn the water on and off. A switch on the lever enables the detection system to be selectable. The tap has water inlets (11,12) to a mechanical mixing valve (10) from which the flow passes through a hose (13) to an electromagnetic valve (3) controlled by a system (4) to which an infrared sensor (5) is connected as well as a selection switch on the control lever through a lead (43).
