Step 5: Flush Debris from waterpipes Step 6: Hot & Cold Regulator

Step 7: Step 8: (Correct way for Hose)

1. Screw the hose into the corresponding screw-hole of the faucet body. Fix the o-ring into the bottom groove of the faucet body.
2. Insert hose, threaded pipe and data cable through the drilled hole of the countertop. Put rubber washer and metal washer onto the threaded pipe, screwing in mounting nut. Adjust the faucet body correctly and tighten the mounting nut with screws.
3. Install the control box to the faucet.
4. Then connect the battery cable to the control box.
5. Make Connections to water supplies. Turn on the water supply and flush water lines into a container for one minute.
Important: This flushes away any debris that could cause damage to internal parts.

6. Connect waterlines to angle stops. Turn on the angle stops and check for leaks (DO NOT TURN FAUCET ON).
7. Turn the faucet on for 1 minute to flush any debris.

Flexible Connecting Hose

Care must be taken when connecting the flexible connection hose from the power supply box to the spout to ensure it does not bend sharply and kink or twist.
See above for recommended ways to fit the flexible connecting hose.

Important: Failure to follow these guidelines may result in poor performance and damage to the flexible connection hose.

Control Box Installation
1. Remove the four screws from the control box. Remove the control box cover. Remove the battery box from the control box, and gently remove the screw from the battery box cover. Install AA batteries in the orientation shown. Note: Use only alkaline AA batteries. Re-install the battery box cover, matching the alignment arrows together. Set the battery box back into the control box, and re-install the control box cover using the previously removed screws.

2. Choose a location under the sink basin to mount the control box, such that the sensor cable, flexible hose, and incoming water supply all connect to the control box. Under the sink basin, drill a hole minimum 3/4” to fit the sensor cable and flexible hose from the spout. Feed the sensor cable and flexible hose through the hole.

3. Mount the control box to the wall in the orientation shown. Drill four 1/8" (3mm) holes, and push drywall anchors into each hole. Secure the control box to the wall with the drywall screws.

4. Connect the incoming water supply line to the control box, at the connection marked Inlet.

5. Thread on the swivel nut to the hose by hand. Tighten with a wrench.

6. Connect the faucet hose to the control box, at the connection marked Outlet.

7. Slide sensor cable connector over the sensor cable connector on the control box and tighten by hand.
Note: Prior to connecting the sensor cable to the control box, open the water supply stop valve and ensure the sink basin is completely clean and clear of objects, or the sensor will not correctly calibrate. Please wait approximately 60 seconds after connecting the sensor cable for sensor calibration to complete and to begin using the faucet.

Inserting Batteries
Your infrared spout is supplied with a back up battery pack (batteries not included). In the event of a power failure the batteries will override the mains power supply to ensure the spout continues to function.

Before fitting the power supply box into position on the wall/floor, batteries (not included) will need to be fitted.

1. Remove Power Supply Box Cover - Remove all four screws in each corner of the power supply box and remove the cover.
2. Remove Battery Box - Remove the battery case from the power supply box and remove the screw in the center of the case.
3. Insert Batteries - Insert 4 x AA batteries (not included) into the battery box ensuring they are inserted the correct way.
4. Replace Battery Box - Replace the battery case cover. Replace and tighten the screw. Insert the battery case back into the power supply box.
5. Replace Power Supply Cover - Replace the power supply cover and tighten all 4 screws ensuring they are all fully tightened.

Electrical Connections

1. Position Power Supply Box - Position the power supply box onto the wall surface below the sink/work surface where it is easily accessible.
Note: Ensure that the power supply box is fitted the correct way up and that the flexible hose will reach from the underside of the spout to the power supply box.
Using suitable fixings for the wall type secure the power supply box to the wall.

2. Plug-In Power Cable - Plug the power cable into the power supply box.

3. Connect The Sensor Cable - Plug the sensor cable from the spout into the power supply box to activate the infrared senor.

Water Connections

Connecting Water Supply - A blended water supply is required to the inlet of the power supply box. Before connecting the water supply to the power supply box flush through the pipework to ensure removal of debris. Once flushed through turn off the mains water supply and close any isolating valves.

Inlet Connection - The inlet connection on the power supply box is a 1/2” BSP male threaded connection. Connect a 1/2” BSP female connector to the inlet connection ensuring a suitable sealing washer is used to create a watertight connection.

Outlet Connection - The outlet connection is a standard 1/2” BSP male threaded connection. Connect the flexi hose to the outlet connection, ensuring it is tightened fully.

Set Range Adjustment

NOTE: Sensor Range can be adjusted after power is supplied to the Faucet (battery or hardwire).

1. Hold the button in until the sensor flashes (approximately 3 - 6 seconds).
2. Place your hand (or card) in front of the sensor at the distance you desire the Faucet to activate. Leave hand or card at this location while the sensor range is setting. Remove hand or card when the sensor light turns off. The sensor range is now set.
Note: The sensor range is dependent on the distance of your hand or card while the sensor is in range setting mode.
Note: If no target is placed in front of the sensor, the sensor range will set to its longest distance.

Set Water Flow Time-Out

NOTE: There are two available time-out settings; 7 seconds and 70 seconds.
Hold the button in for more than six seconds. The water flow time-out setting will change from 7 seconds to 70 seconds or from 70 seconds to 7 seconds.


1. Intelligent Detecting: Water comes out once your hands get into the detection zone. And it will stop once you leave the detection zone. Sensor Confirming Time is less than 0.7s.
2. Super mini designed PCB is controlled by computer chip, saving power intelligently. With mini chip controlling, the static power consumption will be no more than 60uA.
3. Hygienic: Self-open and close to free hands from any touching, which can prevent you from bacteria mutual infections.
4. Overtime Protection: It will shut off automatically when it flows more than 1 minute continuously to avoid water wasting caused by obstacles inside detection zone.
5. Detection Zone Adjusting Automatically: With controlling of mini-computer, it can set up the best detection zone according to the environment automatically.
6. Intelligent Power-Saving: Controlled by low-consumption chips and with power-saving working mode, the faucet is super low-consumption. (DC-type products use 4pcs of AA Alkaline batteries. Its statics current is no more than 60μA. Its lifetime can reach 2 years when it uses 300cycles per day.)
