Everyday magic – how do sensor faucets work?

With touchless faucets, water only flows while it is actually needed. If you move your hand close to the infrared sensor, the water automatically starts to flow – always the right amount and always at a pleasant temperature. When you take your hand away, the flow of water stops. Completely without touching.

Sounds like magic, but in fact it's just intelligent technology: HANSA's patented PSD technology in the sensor ensures that the fitting responds exactly to your hand. And it can do that irrespective of any drops of water, light effects or reflective surfaces. This guarantees the flow of water – fast, intuitively and for a little more magic in your everyday life.

HANSA has a large selection of fittings that don't have to be touched.

What touchless faucets can do

HANSA's sensor faucets are real magicians. They stand for convenient operation, hygiene, economy, intuitive handling, design and intelligent technology. That is why these six aspects make your kitchen and bathroom routines simpler – just magic!

Hands free for what's important

Do you want to fill a vase or a high-sided pot with water quickly, but you can’t put it down? Quite a challenge. In a daily routine with lots of things on our hands, electronically controlled fittings can be a great help. They operate without the need to move a lever. The water begins to flow as soon as your hand gets close to the sensor, and it stops again when you take it away.

More hygiene, less cleaning

Every day, bacteria collect on our hands – sometimes more, sometimes less. If you have to touch a faucet to turn it on, some of them get transferred to it. As no direct contact with the skin is needed to operate a sensor faucet, less bacteria and fewer drops of water land on it. So it stays clean for longer and doesn’t have to be cleaned as often.

Save water – safely

Whether you’re brushing your teeth, shaving or washing your hands, the water often runs for longer than necessary. With electronic fittings, it only flows while it is actually being used. This reduces both water and energy consumption, easing the pressure on the environment – and your purse.

For every generation

Touchless faucets can easily be operated in an intuitive way, so they are suitable for use across all generations. Children understand how to use them faster than you can explain it to them, and older people also appreciate the ease of use. As the temperature can be preset, you can rely on pleasant and safe usage.

Aesthetic design

Whether in the kitchen or in the bathroom, touchless faucets are real eye-catchers. HANSA provides a large selection of touchless design faucets as well as hybrid versions. The latter can be operated both touchlessly as well as manually. They are available in several variants, fitting in perfectly to modern kitchens and bathrooms.

Intelligent technology

The patented PSD technology in the sensor ensures that the fitting responds exactly to your hand. The sensor reliably detects the position of the hand, regardless of any drops of water, light effects or reflective surfaces.

These fittings make life easier.
