KOHLER Co. | August 30, 2013
A family comes in contact with its kitchen's faucet countless times a day, tackling tasks that often leave hands messy and full—even both. Now, Kohler simplifies and streamlines time spent in the kitchen with Sensate, its new touchless kitchen faucet. It brings a new level of convenience to the kitchen, allowing you to flow effortlessly through tasks—even the dirty ones—without pausing to turn the faucet handle on and off, without having to worry about spreading germs to the rest of the kitchen.
With Response™ technology, a state-of-the-art sensor to respond in 20 milliseconds for consistent and reliable on/off operation. But what sets Sensate apart from the rest is its truly touchless and intuitive use—no bare-skin taps or awkward waving necessary. And with an activation area strategically placed on the underside of the spout, use is precise and natural; simply wave your hand, cup, pan or kitchen utensil through the activation area to start or halt waterflow.
In addition to its pull-down design, Sensate also features DockNetik™, a magnetic docking system in the faucet's spout that securely locks the sprayhead into place. ProMotion® Technology connects the sprayhead hose to the sprayhead with a swivel ball joint, which provides effortless and smooth maneuverability. It’s AC power source eliminates the hassle of replacing batteries, and the optional manual operation offers flexibility of use and ensures the faucet will work during power outages.
