Patent
LIXIL Corporation | Date: 2017-04-06

A rotary handle is attached to a hot water single faucet and is a handle for controlling water discharge by rotational operation by an operator. A coefficient of friction of a grip member is set large in order to guide fingers of the operator to the grip member (operation surface) installed at a part of an outer surface of the rotary handle when the operator grasps the rotary handle. The grip member forms a line-shaped operation surface extending to a position not reaching a joint position of the rotary handle and the hot water single faucet along the outer surface in a direction of an axis of rotation.

A detachment sensor 174 detects attachment and detachment of a water discharger 170 to and from a retainer 172. An object sensor 1 detects presence of an object. A controller 3 causes water discharge triggered by detection of an object by the object sensor while the water discharger 170 is attached to the retainer 172 and suppresses water discharge triggered by detection of an object by the object sensor 1 while the water discharger 170 is detached from the retainer 172. The controller 3 suppresses water discharge triggered by detection of an object by the object sensor 1 after attachment of the water discharger 170 to the retainer 172 until a non-detection state of an object by the object sensor 1 continues for a predetermined period of time.

A detachment sensor detects attachment and detachment of a water discharger to and from a retainer. An object sensor detects presence of an object. A controller causes water discharge triggered by detection of an object by the object sensor while the water discharger is attached to the retainer and suppresses water discharge triggered by detection of an object by the object sensor while the water discharger is detached from the retainer. The controller suppresses water discharge triggered by detection of an object by the object sensor after attachment of the water discharger to the retainer until a non-detection state of an object by the object sensor continues for a predetermined period of time.

A rotary handle 122 is attached to a hot water single faucet 100 and is a handle for controlling water discharge by rotational operation by an operator. A coefficient of friction of a grip member 132 is set large in order to guide fingers of the operator to the grip member 132 (operation surface) installed at a part of an outer surface 134 of the rotary handle 122 when the operator grasps the rotary handle 122. The grip member 132 forms a line-shaped operation surface extending to a position not reaching a joint position of the rotary handle 122 and the hot water single faucet 100 along the outer surface 134 in a direction of an axis of rotation.
