A Hygienic Solution - Sensor Taps

Using a mask, maintaining a social distance and maintaining hand hygiene are three habits that will be integral to the new reality after COVI-19. Tapron offers non-contact products to help users take care of their health by eliminating the need to touch objects and reduce the risk of contracting an infection.

The touchless taps with sensor technology detect the presence of hands under the spout. An infrared sensor is automatically activated, opening the water flow for hygiene—for example, Ola Sensor Kitchen Tap facilitates cleaning around the sink. 

Automatic taps have the advantage of being more hygienic - they are activated without touching and help to conserve water.

As part of the safety system, water flow stops to reduce flooding and resource waste if the sensor fails to sense movement.

Introducing sensor taps

As opposed to conventional models, it features a body-mounted sensor. The sensor works: your hand needs to be held within several centimetres of it for it to turn on. It features a unique technology that captures the infrared light that emanates from your hands.

It is possible to adjust the sensing distance of the mixer sensor from 1 to 30 cm.

Device outline

Non-contact tap components include:

  • Batteries
  • Element of filtration
  • Spout
  • Control unit of electronic type -batteries or mains-powered
  • A valve
  • Connecting hose


Kitchen taps with touch-sensitive technology come with both advantages and disadvantages.


  • Water conservation up to 70%.
  • It is easy to use and install.
  • Affordable.
  • It is a hygienic solution.
  • Conserve energy and reduce your water bill.
  • Infrared sensor technology of the highest quality.
  • Customising the sensors with a remote control
  • The AutoFlush option is available.
  • Easily maintained and serviced
  • Rapid sensor activation response
  • Sensors with advanced fibre-optic technology are available.


The contactless use of the system is hygienic, economical, convenient, and can be set to the ideal temperature and water pressure. There are occasions when you need to adjust the temperature or pressure. As a result, the system must be reconfigured. In general, models with remote controls are more convenient; however, they are also more expensive.

Installation of a touchscreen in the kitchen is an ideal solution if changing the temperature is not essential.

Tips for choosing a sensor faucet

The right tap is important when you select a contactless option.

The mixer spout's height is also important to consider. Large pots can easily be washed with tall models with shallow sinks since they provide ample space for washing.

Touch-sensitive kitchen taps are excellent choices for the kitchen. It is not hard to choose one: you just need to make sure that it is the right mixer, take into account the type of coating, and even take into account the height of the spout. Set it up, and it works, and it is easy to use: place your hand up - and it starts flowing, and then as soon as you remove it, it stops.

Sensor tap processing

 An installation of a sensor tap must meet specific requirements:

There are two types of power connections for sensors: batteries and transformers. Furthermore, a sensor tap should have a constant electrical supply to detect any object nearby, such as a hand or vessel. You can detect an object by keeping it near the solenoid valve. When water is flowing through a solenoid valve, it is either started or stopped. As soon as a hand or any vessel is detected, water starts flowing from the automatic sensor tap. A signal is sent to the valve after the object is removed. The solenoid valve closes when it receives the signal, stopping the flow of water.

It's essential to understand how sensor taps work and what makes the taps work on their own. Ensure your bathroom has an electrical supply before installing the sensor tap so you can use it easily.

The Best Reasons to Install Sensor Taps

Health and Sanitation

Sensors are built into the spout, a motion sensor allows it to detect motion, and when a hand appears in front of the tap, the tap will automatically let out water. Thus, it prevents the need to touch the tap handle, which is more hygienic and sanitising.


The design of an automatic tap does not include a handle, and it requires far less maintenance than a regular tap because of this simple and sleek style. The fact that these faucets do not require frequent touch with water or wet hands because they are automatic makes maintenance and cleaning easier.

Conserves Water

A sensor tap saves much more water than a regular tap. By switching off automatically while washing or foaming your hands, sensor taps provide minimal water consumption. As a result, this will reduce water waste by 70%.

Energy Efficient

Although automatic sensor taps do require electricity to function, the amount of energy used to regulate the temperature of the water is extremely low compared to how much energy is used for regular faucets.
