The water yield of an ordinary inductive tap is usually fixed, and users are not able to adjust the water yield according to what they need. This inductive tap design senses the distance between the hands and the water outlet of the tap to determine and adjust the water yield accordingly. When the hands are positioned close to outlet, water yield will be small; when the hands are positioned further away from it, there is more water yield. This design is an intelligent one that can be controlled based on user’s needs. In this way, it also plays a small part in protecting the world’s water resources.

The tap comprises a display screen that enables people to see the amount of water that this relationship between the hands and the water outlet yields. Watching the outlet flow indicator, the lighter the colour of the bar, the slower the flow rate. A red indicator on the same bar tells the current position of the hand. And lastly, the ruled numbers on the bar indicate the distance between the hands and the outlet.
