Sloan Valve Company's Optima Plus® ERF Series Faucet Deploys Patented RF Technology for Wireless Electronic Operation


FRANKLIN PARK, IL - Sloan Valve Company's new Optima Plus (R) ERF Series sensor-operated faucet uses patented RF technology that provides a wireless link between the spout and the battery-powered control module. The wireless connectivity of the ERF-885 faucet makes installation easy in both new and retrofit applications while eliminating vandalism to wiring.

The ERF-885 enhances sensor operation and reduces false detection by combining both Passive Infrared and Active Infrared technologies. The complete RF system effectively scans a wide area for targets and activates water flow only when a user's hands come into range. It features multiple time-out settings.

The unit ships complete with spout, sensor, control module, mounting hardware, and either a 4-inch or 8-inch trim plate. Audible signals emitted by the low-frequency, low-power RF faucet provide installation guidance and diagnostic cues such as a low-battery alert. Expected battery life is six years.

Sloan's ERF-885 faucet complements the company's growing line of water-saving, electronic plumbing fixtures.

Sloan Valve Company is the world's leading manufacturer of plumbing systems and has been in operation since 1906. Headquartered in Franklin Park, Illinois, the company manufactures plumbing products for commercial, industrial, and institutional markets worldwide.
