Title (EN) VALVE ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE VALVE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A valve assembly (10) comprises a valve (14) for controlling a flow of fluid from a fluid supply. The valve has a first configuration and a second configuration, the first configuration is arranged to allow a greater mass flow rate to flow from a supply than the second configuration. The valve assembly comprises a sensor (18) arranged to sense liquid, such as water on a surface. The valve is arranged to be switchable by wireless control means fro the first configuration to the second configuration or vice versa when liquid is sensed.
(FR)L'invention concerne un ensemble de valve (10) comprenant une valve (14) destinée à commander un flux de fluide provenant d'une source d'alimentation fluidique. Cette valve présente une première configuration et une seconde configuration, la première configuration étant conçue de sorte qu'elle permette d'obtenir un débit massique de fluide provenant d'une source d'alimentation fluidique qui soit supérieur au débit de la seconde configuration. Cet ensemble de valve comprend un capteur (18) agencé pour détecter un liquide, notamment de l'eau sur une surface. La valve de l'invention est conçue pour pouvoir être commutée par un moyen de commande sans fil, de la première configuration à la seconde configuration ou vice versa, lorsque le liquide est détecté.
