WaterControl 01.1 consists of a shut-off valve and a control unit with power supply and an EnOcean® wireless module. The shut-off valve features a drinking water-approved ball valve with an electric motor which is integrated in the water-carrying pipe. Two ball valves (G1 male / G1½ male) with corresponding screw connections for G¾ female and G1 female / G1¼ female and G1½ female are available. There several ways to open and close the shut-off valve in the water pipe:
Opening/closing the shut-off valve mechanically via the operating handle
Opening/closing the shut-off valve electrically via buttons at the control unit
Closing the shut-off valve via water sensors
Opening/closing the shut-off valve via EnOcean® switch
Opening/closing the shut-off valve via AFRISOhome gateway and smartphone
The control unit has a permanent wireless connection to the water sensors WaterSensor eco or WaterSensor con or WaterSensor BWS and/or the AFRISOhome gateway. An event message is triggered if the water sensors detect a leak, e.g. caused by a defective household appliance or a water pipe burst. WaterControl 01.1 can be used, for example, to shut off the water pipe to keep further water from escaping. The AFRISOhome gateway transmits alarm messages and state transition messages via WLAN to the person in charge (for example, to the owner, the facility manager, the janitor or other configured contacts).
