Vivo Sensor Basin Mixer Tap (Chrome)


Applications: Adapted bathrooms for disabled, Airports, Healthcare, Public Toilet, Wash basin

Vivo sensor basin mixer tap improves hygiene and energy efficiency at commercial washrooms yet lends a distinguished quality layout that will perfectly match any deluxe décor. The touch free system allows a reduction in cross contamination, with its mixer lever providing heat to prevent bacteria proliferation in water. The 6 litre flow per minute and the 60 second maximum operation time favours the environment in comparison with traditional pillar taps, saves costs and protects the unit against vandalism or lapses. In fact, the European field industry has certified its energy efficient performance with the "A" Water Efficiency Label, the highest level granted.

IFS130 has also been designed with features to ease maintenance and customise the experience. For instance, one can activate the 10 second hygiene flushing in case the smart tap is not operated for 24 hours. Staff can adjust several settings interacting with the built-in front sensor (by following the instructions in the documentation below) or acquiring a compatible remote control available as an accessory. For an added convenience, instead of being placed under the washbasin, the 6V lithium battery is located inside the faucet, with an outstanding IP65 rated protection.

With a wide range of benefits that will please visitors, staff and eventually nature, Vivo sensor tap with mixer lever looks a great choice for users that expect a complete touchless unit.

Technical description

This infrared tap is made of chrome plated brass, a long-lasting material with a shiny finish. Furthermore, both the sensor and the solenoid valves are manufactured to last for the whole lifetime of the product. The unit comes equipped with two water supplies whose final temperature will be controlled by the side mixer lever. To avoid scalding, during installation one can set the lever to the desired maximum temperature.

Is this sensor tap Doc M compliant?

Automatic taps should be easily operated, as Approved Document M requires. Other requirements will be up to the installer, like fixing the basin tap at the right distance from the WC and floor or setting a safe temperature for the users.

For further details about these topics, please, read our blog post about Doc M taps.

What are the pros and cons of each finish?

We have written a blogpost about it. Please, click here.

How often to clean the filters?

This sensor tap has one filter per water supply (included in the package), in order to be placed before the solenoid valve. Furthermore, the tap aerator in the spout will also act as a filter.

Filter before the solenoid valve of a sensor tap

Like in any type of tap, filters must be taken out and washed regularly with running water. In particular, the solenoid valve diaphragm should be checked every 6 months.

There are two situations when the upkeep is essential:

  • After the installation, since a lot of dust is spreaded during the process.
  • After a water cut, this liquid will have dirt.

Anything practical to know about infrared sensors?

The proximity sensors in our taps and some soap dispensers use active infrared technology: they detect the infrared radiation that a close object (in their range) reflects back. This means that hands, washroom accessories or just even dirt near them will activate them.

Furthermore, infrared sensors can misinterpret certain situations and open the solenoid valve when they are not suppose to:

  • Mirrors and very reflective finishes (like polished chrome) in front of them will send confusing signals if they are closer than 1.5 metre to the tap. One must be careful for example with the elements of the basin bowl: the spout of wall-mounted sensor taps should be at least 300mm away from the bottom of the sink and not facing a shiny basin plug. Tap sensors can also react if a person is wearing striking garments.
  • Other infrared sensors opposite them also imply unintended triggers.

Therefore, we encourage you to read the installation guidelines the manufacturer provides and accept that accidental unlocks are a (rare) fact.

Why would (not) you recommend a sensor tap?

We've compared different types of faucets and we've found a lot of advantages of sensor taps, specially for commercial bathrooms and public toilets. You can read them in this blog post, including a few less positive considerations.

    • Cut off time to prevent misuse
    • Customisation once for good
    • A cleaner washroom (no dirty handle, less splashes, no sink overflow)
    • No cross-contamination
    • No corrosion (depending on the model)
    • One remote control can adjust infinite taps
  • Neutral features
    • Users will have to learn how to use them (once)
    • Maintenance is required, like any other tap
    • Batteries must be replaced
  • Disadvantages
    • Greater initial investment
    • Remote control to change settings
    • Power cut would entail no operation
    • Infrared sensors can make mistakes
    • Animals activate them as well
    • Some internal parts may favour bacteria
    • More likeliness to replace the whole unit

We advise you to assess what points are more relevant and frequent according to your needs and the location of the tap.
