Villeroy & Boch enhances urinal flushing control – ProDetect 2 excels through extensive function extensions

Press Release   •   Jan 15, 2016 09:38 GMT

Whether in a stadium, in an office building or in a restaurant. Urinals in public or semi-public areas have a high user frequency. Villeroy & Boch has enhanced the ProDetect urinal flushing control in order to better meet functional requirements. ProDetect 2 has new features and combines them with technically proven functionality, practical user convenience and high effectiveness. In addition, ProDetect 2 is equipped with an integrated overflow protector and has an even better flushing performance.

Simple installation and maintenance

Thanks to its plug-and-play function, the ProDetect 2 urinal flushing control is immediately ready for use. All changes to the settings as well as the reading out of diagnosis and statistical data can not only be controlled manually, but also conveniently by means of an app via an optional Bluetooth interface. The urinal thus does not have to be removed for maintenance purposes. Thanks to the modular system used for ProDetect 2, the components can be combined individually and application-specific for mains or battery operation as well as for optional Bluetooth inclusion. A diagnosis function, which also checks the sensor functionality, ensures reliable operation and with the aid of a user statistics function it is also possible to view the total number of daily uses and the average value over the last 30 days.

Proven detection reliability and new effectiveness

The ProDetect 2's sensor element, which is fitted on the rear wall of the ceramic, operates with an improved usage detector, which detects urine flowing in the urinal and triggers a flushing process. The flushing volume can be set individually. ProDetect 2 has a water-saving mode, by means of which the flushing volume can be limited to 0.8 l. With more frequent use, for example, during half-time at a football stadium, the stadium mode automatically extends the flushing intervals, reduces the flushing volume and later automatically returns to normal operation. A hygiene flush that triggers 24 hours after the urinal was last used cleans the siphon and prevents deposits or odours from occurring due to a low water level.

At the present time, ProDetect 2 can be combined with seven urinals from the Villeroy & Boch series Architectura, Omina Architectura, O.novo and Subway 2.0.
