Product Information

Vectatap is an elegant deck-mounted chrome infrared tap for commercial washrooms, with non-touch benefits of hygienic hands-free washing. This robust but stylist design makes the Vectatap ideal for high use environments. Comes complete with an external solenoid valve, which is activated when hands come in range.

Made to high standards, with options for mains or battery power, out of the box as standard. Our range of infrared sensor taps have a stylish and modern design, with highly intelligent electronics, that offer a safeguard to misuse and vandalism. They provide the optimum in hygiene for the modern-day commercial washroom and comes fitted with 3.5lpm flow regulator as standard with a 5lpm flow regulator in the box, to support environmental building schemes such as BREEAM.

To prevent the potential build-up of stagnant water, which can create legionella bacteria growth, the tap incorporates a hygiene rinse option which operates 12 hours after the last use of the tap.

Features and Benefits

  • Improved hygiene and reduce the transfer of infection
  • Easy to fit in new installations or retrofits
  • Hands-free basin outlet infrared tap, to save water, promote hygiene and reduce maintenance costs
  • Automatic shut-off (no drips or taps left running) to improve water and energy efficiency
  • Suitable for elderly or people with reduced mobility
  • 3.5 litres per minute and 5 litres per minute flow rate options
  • Mains and battery powered options included
  • Robust vandal resistant design
  • Ensures compliance with the Water Regulations, WRAS approved

To prevent the potential build-up of stagnant water, which can create legionella bacteria growth, the tap incorporates a hygiene rinse option which operates 12 hours after the last use of the tap.

Power supply: Vectatap can be powered by either mains adaptor (1A fused spur required) or batteries, with both options included as standard. Also available as an optional extra is a Multi-Product Power Supply Unit (PSUC) which can provide power for up to 30 taps (only 1 fused spur required).

Additional customised settings are obtainable via a handheld remote control Infrared Configuration Unit (ICU) which is available as an optional extra. The remote controller enables rapid automatic configuration to the specific washroom dimensions and deactivation of the hygiene rinse function.

The flow of water from the taps is turned on when the user presents their hands to the infrared sensor which is located on the lower body of the Vectatap.

No contact is required. The sensor automatically activates the externally-sited solenoid valve. When the user’s hands are moved away the flow of water stops after a 2 second delay.

Product FAQs

We’re here to Help!

Q
The installation is completed but there is no water coming out of the tap. What should I do?
A

Things to check:

  • The sensor is flashing red once a second.

Solution: This is likely due to low battery power. Change the batteries.

  • The sensor is not flashing at all when hands are in its sensing range. 

Solution: Probably due to no power. Check electrical connections and ensure power is supplying the sensor. If battery powered, replace batteries.

  • The sensor is flashing green once a second when hands are in the sensing range but there is still no water.

Solution: You need to check the water supply, make sure the supply is turned on and there is a good working pressure. The minimum dynamic pressure is 0.5 bar and the maximum dynamic or static pressure is 6 bar. Check the filter on the inlet to the solenoid valve for blockages.

  • The sensor may be covered.

Solution: The anti-vandal mode will have been triggered. The object / debris needs to be removed and the tap will resume normal functionality.

Q
The installation is completed but there is a continuous flow of water or dripping from the tap. How can I correct this?
A

Things to check:

  • The sensor is not flashing at all when hands are in its sensing range.

Solution: This is likely due to low battery power. Change the batteries – use a good brand.

  • Water is flowing even when no one is near the tap.

Solution: Check the water supply. Make sure the water pressure is not above the maximum dynamic pressure of 6 bar or below the minimum dynamic pressure of 0.5 bar. Ensure the arrow on the external solenoid valve is pointing in the direction of the water flow. Check for debris or scale in the diaphragm: isolate water supply to the valve and remove wires attached to the solenoid. Undo the 4 x screws and remove. This will give you access to the diaphragm (note orientation of diaphragm when re-installing), flush under cold water and visually inspect.  Re-install.  If the diaphragm has been damaged by debris, visually inspect and then call Cistermiser on 0118 969 1611 for further instructions.

Q
The installation is completed but the water flow has diminished from the tap. What can I do?
A

Things to check:

  • Is the sensor flashing green once a second when hands are in the sensing range?

Solution: Either the filter or aerator is blocked with scale or debris. Remove the aerator tap using the key supplied, clean and reinstall. Check all filters for debris and scale.

Q
The installation is completed but the water flow changes. It is fine to start and then diminishes immediately. Why is this happening?
A

Things to check:

  • Is the sensor flashing green once a second when hands are in the sensing range?

Solution: It’s either a TMV or water pressure issue. Check that the TMV is operating correctly and that the water pressures are suitable for TMVs installed.

Q
The installation is completed but the water is cold all the time. What should I do?
A

Things to check:

  • Is the sensor flashing green once a second when hands are in the sensing range?

Solution: It’s either a TMV or a hot water plumbing issue. Check that the TMV is setup correctly.  Hot water runs in building can sometimes be lengthy so there could be a short delay until hot water is dispensed from the tap.

Q
The installation is completed but the sensor is showing alarms. What should I do?
A

Things to check:

  • Is the sensor flashing double red flash?

Solution: This is likely to be faulty wiring or a faulty solenoid. Please check the wiring first.  If you think you have a faulty solenoid, then call Cistermiser for advice on 0118 969 1611.

  • Is the sensor flashing red once every second?

Solution: This will be due to low battery power. Change the batteries.

  • Is the sensor flashing red twice every three seconds?

Solution: This will be due to the sensor being covered or heavily scratched. Uncover the sensor or polish out the scratches.
