Application

Electronic IRC for use with an urinal flushing cistern, mains and / or battery operated.

Description

The Infrared Control Valve IRC® automatically manages the supply of water to a urinal cistern. The unit employs motion-sensing infrared to control valve operation and reduce water consumption by over 80%. The PIR sensor detects movement and activates the solenoid valve, allowing water into a urinal cistern. 


Features and benefits:

  • The ideal valve for control of cistern-fed urinals.
  • Normal or Economy Mode water-saving options.
  • Ensures compliance with the Water Regulations.
  • Battery or mains powered (no external transformer required) - IRC® can use batteries as back-up to mains supply if required.
  • Pipe, wall or ceiling mounted sensor - surface mounted or recessed.
  • Can be concealed to reduce the risk of vandalism.
  • Visible LED status indicator and low battery alert.
  • Reduces water consumption and washroom odours.
  • Low installation and maintenance costs.
  • Typical pay-back of installed cost in 7—9 months.


How the product works:

  • The IRC® urinal flush control consists of a solenoid valve and the infrared sensor module.
  • When the IRC® detects movement in the washroom, a pulse from the sensor opens the normally closed solenoid valve and water flows to the cistern. The LED flashes to show the valve is open.
  • In Normal mode, the IRC® operates with a 30-minute cycle. This means that the cistern will flush a maximum of two times per hour.
  • In Economy mode, an additional delay of 15 minutes is provided before the Normal mode operating cycle is activated, to save even more water. This means that the cistern will flush a maximum of 2 times in 90 minutes.
  • IRC® is a registered trademark of Cistermiser Ltd.
