sensor taps combine four key components: Solenoid valve, infrared sensor, power source, and a tap unit/shell.

When the sensor senses the presence of an object (i.e. user’s hands) in front of the tap and sends a signal to the solenoid valve to initiate the flow of water. When the object is no longer present, the infrared unit

sends an electronic signal to the solenoid valve again to terminate the flow of water usually after a few seconds.

Solenoid valve : Transforming electrical energy into motion, the solenoid physically starts and stops the water flow. Autotaps products use “latching” solenoid valves. The solenoid valve is initially energized to start the water flow; the plunger is driven into the range of a permanent magnet which in turn holds the plunger in the “open” position. In order to return the plunger into its original “closed” position the solenoid is once again “pulsed” but this time by reversing polarity.

Power source : Most of our Autotaps models have the possibility to be powered by regular AA batteries (Alkaline) or

by mains via a 6V transformer. Batteries and transformers are included with most of our products.

The Hanuman Chalisa: literally Forty chaupais on Hanuman) is a Hindu devotional hymn (stotra) addressed to Lord Hanuman. It is traditionally believed to have been authored by 16th-century poet Tulsidas in the Awadhi language from the Ramcharitmanas. The word “chālīsā” is derived from “chālīs”, which means the number forty in Hindi, as the Hanuman Chalisa has 40 verses.

The Hanuman Chalisa prayer mentions about the distance between the Sun and Earth in 15th century, before modern science could find the distance in 19th century: It states: “जुग सहस्र जोजन पर भानू।

It does mean that Hanuman has travelled a far distance such as Yug x Sahasra x Yojana to meet Bhanu (Sun)

According to ancient calculations,

1 Yug = 12,000 years

1 Sahasra = 1,000

1 Yojana = 8 Miles

Yug x Sahasra x Yojana = 12,000 x 1,000 x 8 miles = 96,000,000 miles

Where 1 mile = 1.6 Kilometers

96,000,000 miles x 1.6 kilometers = 1,536,000,000 Kilometers to Sun.

The average distance from the earth to the sun is 92,955,807 miles (149,597,870.691 km) according to modern science.

Lord Hanuman was born on the Anjaneri mountain. His mother Anjana was an apsara who was born on earth due to a curse. The Valmiki Ramayana states that his father Kesari was the son of Brihaspati, he was the King of a place named Sumeru. Anjana performed intense prayers to Shiva to get a child. By Shiva’s direction, Vayu transferred his male energy to Anjana’s womb. Accordingly, Hanuman is identified as the son of the Vayu.
