Oras Remote dishwasher valve – operation and useful service tips 20.02.2019 — For installation

The Oras electronic remote valve consists of a Smart Press Pad, control unit and electronic valve. The valve is remote controlled which means that it doesn´t need to be placed directly next to the control unit. The remote valve is easy to install, no need to drill holes to the countertop!

The benefits of Oras remote valve:

  • For all kitchen and washbasin faucets with inlet pipes.
  • Can be connected to cold or hot water.
  • The remote valve is available in two models, battery operated (3V) 272100 or mains operated (230 / 5V) 272101 .
  • Components are connected already in the factory. Reconnecting the components is needed only when changing the press pad or control unit.
  • No drilled holes needed in the countertop since the valve is wireless.
  • Valve’s open duration is preset to 4h. Extended opening hours period, 12 hours, is available through a longer (5s)  press on the Press pad (see image 2).
    • Please note that there still might be some wrong information about 3 hours opening period in old manuals.
