This is a BREEAM WAT04 compliant system consisting of a passing infra-red controller and up to three solenoid valves. These PIR systems isolate the water supply in any W/C, changing rooms, or any other wet area when not in use, limiting the risk of water damage.
The unit is activated, and the water supply opened when a person enters the room. Available for pipe sizes 15mm – 35mm the system can activate up to 3 valves for the hot, cold and grey water supply. Once the room is vacated there is an adjustable delay before the water supply is isolated, which can be set between 6 seconds and 20 minutes.
When the timer is first activated it will run for the period set by the installer. If the timer is again activated before it has reached the set period, the time will reset to the period set. This ensures uninterrupted supply in heavily frequently areas, once there is no more movement being detected then the timer will expire after the set time and the valves will close and the relays will switch off.
These systems are used in any wet area; toilets, shower rooms, kitchens and even water fountains in addition to one of our two metered Waterguard Water Leak Series 7 systems to add extra protection and also conserve water.
Q. Does the PIR have a volt free relay to control power?
A. The PIR has 2 volt free relays to control both power and lighting.
