New Moen® MotionSense™ Provides a Convenient, Hands-Free Kitchen Faucet Experience to Simplify Everyday Tasks

NORTH OLMSTED, OH--(Marketwire - Apr 24, 2012) - MotionSense from Moen provides an intuitive, hands-free kitchen faucet experience that responds to users' simple hand movements to activate water flow, delighting consumers day after day.

  • MotionSense helps the user to accomplish everyday tasks, like washing hands, cleaning dishes or preparing meals, with greater convenience

  • Because users' needs are not always the same, there are three ways to turn on faucets with MotionSense:
    • The Wave Sensor at the top of the faucet starts and stops the water flow with a simple hand movement above the faucet

    • The Ready Sensor near the base of the faucet identifies when an object, like a cup or the user's hand, is placed beneath the spout, and runs water for as long as that item remains in-range of the sensor

    • The handle on the side of the faucet offers familiar, manual operation, letting users adjust flow and temperature

  • A special valve design fully supports manual and digital modes, meaning the hands-free feature works any time -- even when the handle is in the "off" position. It also means that the faucet will always function in manual mode -- even if it loses battery charge or power.

  • Moen has made the installation process as streamlined as possible, with preassembled components and simple push-fit connections

  • Hands-free technology reduces the spread of germs and diminishes the risk of cross contamination

  • Saves water when using Ready Sensor by supplying water only when the user's hands or an object are within the sensing zone

  • Powered by a battery pack that utilizes six standard AA batteries or by an optional AC power adapter

  • An LED light provides visual feedback to the user, indicating when the faucet turns on or off; or using a unique light pattern to notify if the faucet should run low on battery power

  • The Arbor® pulldown kitchen faucet is the first faucet to offer MotionSense
    • Arbor offers transitional styling

    • Available in Chrome, Oil Rubbed Bronze, and new Spot Resist Stainless finish

    • Features Moen's Reflex® system, which improves overall hose and sprayer operation for an experience that is truly user-friendly

    • Multi-function pulldown wand includes aerated spray, stream and a pause feature, which allows users to interrupt the water flow while moving the spout outside of the sink

    • Features a five-year warranty for all electronics, plus a Limited Lifetime Warranty for all finishes and mechanical components
