Rada Outlook is a six outlet digital thermostatic mixing valve, with programmable timed flow for hand washing and showering applications, operated by a choice of touch sensors, non-touch sensors, or non-touch spout.

Features and benefits:

  • Cost effective and flexible, whilst complying with legislative requirements.
  • Automatically performs duty flush at intervals.
  • Integrate auxiliary products such as a fan, pump or Passive Infra Red (PIR) occupancy sensor to the Outlook system and program specifically to application.
  • Records automatic duty flush and supervised thermal disinfection data for legislation compliance.
  • Easily programmable using Windows-based menus from a desktop computer, laptop or equivalent for easy access, download and interrogation of data.
  • Connect multiple units to anIT Network or Building Management System, by making Mobus data available for systems integrators to link into. Up to 31 Rada Outlook units on each Mobus network.
  • Incorporating T-Logic™ Digital Intelligence used in Rada Sense allowing the user to operate, communicate and exchange information with the mixing valve to deliver the ultimate in safety, hygiene and control.

  • Integral components: DZR brass, stainless steel, engineering plastic.

Temperature range:

  • Factory pre-set: Default 38°C.
  • Programmable range: Minimum 30°C

Programmable temperature range:

  • Factory pre-set: Default 38°C.
  • Programmable range: Minimum 38°C–47°C, maximum 33°C–50°C and default 30°C–50°C at start up, or full cold only can be selected.
  • Minimum blend temperature differential from hot supply: 2°C.
  • Optimum thermostatic control range: 30°C–50°C.
