Opto Gravity Choose orange for the best shower flow rate on gravity systems. Opto Digital gravity comes complete with an integral pump to achieve this. Opto Thermo gravity is engineered to deliver twice the flow of other conventional thermostatic shower valves. Opto Combi Both Opto Digital and Opto Thermo combi showers have been specifically designed to work in partnership with combi systems; whether you go for Digital or Thermo, you can be sure of a dedicated shower that delivers a perfect shower all year round. Opto High Pressure Designed especially with high pressure systems in mind, both showers ensure better flow control, without compromising thermostatic performance. Aqualisa Opto technologies Opto Digital standard processor Opto Digital is based on our award winning processor technology tailored to the needs of the professional installer. It now offers the consumer elegantly simple controls and an economical shower solution what ever the water system. Optimising performance from the water system, Opto Thermo uses our tried and trusted thermostatic technology. Opto Thermo cartridgges How Digital works The Digital processor A typical Opto exposed installation Central to Digital showering is the separation of the valve from the controls The water is blended and controlled in a processor box that is sited remotely from the showering area, for example in the loft, the airing cupboard or under the bath. The processor can be located... In the loft In the airing cupboard Under the bath (exposed variant shown) (concealed variant shown) (concealed variant shown) Hot and cold water flows to the processor and is perfectly blended before flowing out of the processor and into the showerhead. A low voltage data cable connects the controller and is cleverly concealed within the exposed shower riser rail or wall, leaving a simple easy to install shower control Pumped processor 445m 90mm m m 0m 27 Standard processor 350m 70mm m m 5m 26 Opto Digital Great Performance Opto Digital will deliver 12 litres per minute on gravity and high pressure systems (caveat about combis here) Three invigorating spray patterns Whether it’s an early morning wake up call or a relaxing after work wind-down you’ll be sure to find one to suit. Rub clean nozzles The unique handset has easy rub clean nozzles to enable simple cleaning and the removal of scale to optimise flow rates Simple one touch control A simple push of the button is all it takes to get Opto Digital up and running. See when it is time to step in Keep an eye on the flashing light – when it holds steady it’s time to start showering 140mm Easy temperature control An easy glide temperature selector eases operation for both young and old Eco setting A swift turn of the screw driver at the processor box will reduce the flow rate from 12 litres to an economical 8 litres per minute.

Connect the copper pipe to the blended water outlet on the Digital processor, connect the low voltage data cable and connect the power lead to a double pole 3 amp fuse switch. Optimised with a twist Optimising the performance of Opto Digital with your water system Inside Aqualisa’s processor box are a number of controls that, with a simple turn of a screwdriver, lets you adjust the maximum temperature of the water (factory set at 45 degrees C) and change the mode control setting to suit the water system it operates on. Optimised performance what ever the plumbing characteristics. Opto Gravity Opto Combi Opto High Pressure The gravity variant comes complete with an integrated pump to boost flow rates up to an impressive 12 litres per minute. We all strive to be careful with our water consumption. There is an option to switch to an “Eco” setting that will reduce maximum flow rates and help minimise water usage. Aqualisa have developed the first Digital shower designed specifically with the nuances of combination boilers in mind. Twist the screw driver to Combi on the processor box and all the settings are then automatically optimised to deliver fantastic performance on a Combi The processor box on normal High Pressure setting will deliver a great performing shower. It also features an Eco setting guaranteed to please those end users that have an eye to the environment. Turn the arrow to Eco during installation to reduce the maximum flow rate Switch position on standard processor Switch position on standard processor Switch position on pumped processor How Thermo works Based upon Aqualisa’s renowned, bi-metallic thermostatic showering technology, each Opto Thermo shower cartridge – whether gravity, combi or high pressure – has been especially designed to ensure maximum optimisation of the water system is achieved. Easy to install and helpfully colour coded, Opto Thermo cartridges feature refined, system specific flow control mechanisms that, amongst other benefits, are capable of delivering up to twice the flow on gravity systems, overcome flow and temperature fluctuations when teamed with combi systems and that avoid exhausting hot water supplies on high pressure systems. The heart of the valve Opto Thermo cartridges have been redesigned at their core to ensure the best possible results from different water systems Opto Thermo gravity Delivers unbelievable flow rates at over 10 litres a minute from a 1 metre head, typically twice the flow of many other manufacturers’ shower systems. Opto Thermo combi Offers true thermostatic performance, optimising boiler efficiency and giving optimum performance even in winter. Opto Thermo high pressure Controls the flow at the heart of the valve, giving both thermostatic control and a great performance at the handset. Opto Thermo Optimised performance Opto Thermo delivers up to a staggering 10.2 litres per minute on gravity, and gives optimised flow rates on combi and high pressure water systems Rub clean nozzles The unique handset has easy rub clean nozzles to enable simple cleaning and the removal of scale to optimise flow rates Three invigorating spray patterns Aqualisa’s optimum handset offers multiple spray patterns to suit your mood. System specific cartridge inside By choosing the cartridge that best suits the water system you can be sure that the thermostatic performance is never compromised.
