In many environments, contamination poses a serious risk. Hospitals, schools, and food service to name a few. Poor hand washing can cause cross contamination and cause disease. The easier it is to keep hands clean, the better. T&S believes in the importance of hand washing. To meet hygienic needs, we have developed a range of high performing electronic faucets. By installing an electronic faucet, you’ve just removed one significant factor in contamination. In school for instance, that sick teacher that should be at home, doesn’t need to touch the faucet to turn it on. So the next 20 kids who use the faucet that day, won’t get what she had. In the food service environment, there is no longer a risk of touching a food product that may harbor food born disease, turning on a faucet to wash your hands and coming into contact with the food product again and you shut off the facet and move to another task. With T&S electronic faucets, you never need to touch the faucet and the impurities you bring to the sink won’t come back to haunt you after you have finished washing. In fact in these environment and many more, there is not a more useful tool than an electronic faucet. They are so easy to use that they actually encourage more hand washing as well. Avoiding contamination is a huge benefit, but electronic faucets also offer dramatic water savings since they only flow when hands set off their censor. They are easier to maintain with fewer moving parts and potential leak points. There are even a range of options for how the electronics in the faucets are powered and two different lines of faucets, checkpoint and our value line equip. T&S is the only provider of electronic faucets that also offers a mixing valve as standard. And our single skew makes it easier for specifiers, dealers, and contractors. Ease of installation is just one of the many benefits of T&S electronic faucets. Place the faucet on the sink, align it with the mounting holes, and tighten the hardware underneath the deck. Tighten the center nut with a ¾ inch socket. Attach the flex water lines to the shut off valves and tighten them securely. Then fasten the control module to the wall using the specified locations located on the module. Attach the mixing value onto the inlet of the control module and tighten it, in most cases this is already pre-installed. Secure the mixing valve to the lines using the half inch of the hose and tighten them securely. Next attach the flex line to the faucet inlet and to the control module outlet. Be careful while tightening, not to damage the electrical connection to the sensor cable. Align the arrow to the center cable to the module and then connect them to each other. Finally screw the sensor cable’s connector cover onto the control module. Turn on the water and check for leaks. Now you are ready to set the electronic eye of the faucet. Access the module and press and hold the on and off button for 5-7 seconds. The water fluid should start then stop. Release the button, you will notice that the LED light will blink on then turn itself off. You will want to set the range somewhere between the faucet itself and where the water will flow. Place a flat object like a card or your hand at the desired distance from the sensor. The LED will turn itself back on. Press the on/off button on the module before moving the object away and the light will flash 5 times to let you know that you have saved the range setting. You can reset the range at any time during the life of the faucet. T&S gives you alternatives for powering your electronic faucets. Most installers choose to use batteries, even though this puts the faucet at risk of running out of power and becoming unusable for a time. It’s almost as easy to use the AC adapter, which brings the added advantage of using the batteries as backup in case of a power failure, with a need to replace batteries only every few years. There is a third option that takes your electronic faucet to the next level while saving you maintenance time and money. That option is the hydra generator. The hydra generator is a T&S innovation that powers your electronic faucet with the flow of water itself. As water passes through the lines of your electronic faucet, it fuels your hydra generator like a high tech water wheel, allowing it to gather and store energy that it can use to power the electronic sensor and water flow. The hydra generator can also act as a primary source with the batteries as a backup, for those interested in sustainability and water conservation; there is no other option like it anywhere. Installing the hydra generator is simple, as easy as installing one more part between the mixing value and the control module. T&S electronic faucets are also available with other options to ensure they fit their environment perfectly: The LN (less nozzle) option, the SM (side mount), SMT (side mount option w/thermostatic valve), TMV (below deck option with thermostatic mixing valve), LF22 featuring 2.2 gallons per minute with a vandal resistant laminent flow. Choose a faucet with T&S and enjoy the benefits of water savings, lower installation and maintenance costs and dramatically reduced contamination.
