Sloan BASYS® Sensor Activated Faucets are centered on a robust system of shared features and components. This fundamentally different approach aims to revolutionize the commercial plumbing industry by streamlining service and advancing the user experience.

BASYS® Any Application. Any Environment.

Backed by a century of experience and proven Sloan technologies, BASYS® delivers a revolutionary approach to sensor faucets that meets the demands of the commercial plumbing industry. Fueled by two years of field research and in-depth interviews with architects, engineers and plumbers, BASYS® has the strength and versatility to meet the needs of any application or environment.

Redefining Efficiency + User Experience

BASYS® is centered on a robust system of shared features and components. This fundamentally different approach aims to revolutionize the commercial plumbing industry by streamlining service and advancing the user experience.

One Tool Service
A single allen wrench provides access to all key components. No additional tools are required.
Automatic Shut-off
One twist of the solenoid caddy shuts off water supply to facilitate replacing or cleaning the filter.
Visible Diagnostics
Individual external diagnostic LEDs indicate the health and status of key components.
Shared Parts
Interchangeability of components simplifies orders, upgrades, repairs and maintenance.
Power Options
Multiple power harvesting options are available to suit the unique needs of each environment.
Line Purge
All models include a line purge function to eliminate the stagnant water that can lead to bacterial growth.
Flow Rates
Three spray modules – full stream aerated, laminar and low flow multi-laminar – provide options to adjust flow rate and feel of water.
Active Infrared is the standard on all models. Capacitance (offered on some models) provides extra protection against vandalism.
Sleep Mode
With a touch, staff can temporarily turn off the water supply in order to clean the sink area without activating water flow.


Body Types

Multiple body types offer a variety of functional and aesthetic options.


The modest profile minimizes the potential for vandalism, making this body type ideal for high-use, low-security environments. For extra assurance against damage, opt for the capacitance model.

Low Base

Ideal for the most demanding high-use environments. The integrated base offers added durability via two attachment points. The capacitance model is especially robust.


This model provides optimal height and proportions for effective hand washing, making it well suited for most restroom environments.


The tall profile offers a distinct aesthetic as well as an optimized delivery angle that permits a greater wash area. Users can scrub past their forearms if desired.



Interchangeable crowns help tailor a product to fit the unique needs of a particular installation. Crowns are interchangeable with models that utilize the same method of sensing.

A clean, bowed crown is the standard for all models. It provides an uninterrupted appearance. (IR/C)

Solar panels embedded in the crown draw power from artificial and natural light sources. (IR)

Solar + Display
Both solar panels and LCD display are embedded into a single crown. (IR)



A variety of power choices help make the most of available resources. All power supply options have battery-powered back-up for reliable service and operation.


A good option for retrofit environments or installations where hardwiring is not an option. (IR/C)


Ideal for new construction, because it eliminates regular use of disposable batteries. However, all hardwired faucets have back-up battery power. (IR/C)


An excellent choice to passively harvest power without adding parts to the water stream. Our solar panels are able to harvest power from both artificial and natural sources. (IR)


Investments and advances in our turbine technology allow for optimized performance, even at a flow rate of 0.5 gpm. (IR/C)


Spray Insert Options

0.50 gpm

1.50 gpm

1.50 gpm



There are two different kinds of sensing technologies available.

Active Infrared (IR)
Infrared sensing is the standard on all BASYS models. When a user’s hands reflect the invisible light beam, the faucet knows to begin the flow of water. Infrared models are designed to provide easy, above-deck access to key components, and offer additional user enhancements.


  • Individual external diagnostic LEDs
  • All key components — battery, valve caddy and solenoid — are easily accessible for above-deck service
  • Can accommodate or upgrade to solar and / or LCD
  • Adjustable time-out settings
  • Available with mechanical mixer, integral to spout
  • Available on all models
Capacitance (C)
Capacitance sensing utilizes the human body’s own natural conductivity. When the faucet senses a hand, it starts the flow of water. There is no sensor window and critical components are protected in a watertight, below- deck box. An excellent choice for high-use environments, or when vandalism is a concern.


  • Individual external diagnostic LEDs
  • Below-deck components protected in a watertight box
  • Only two keyed wire connections located between the spout and control module
  • Self-adapting sensing
  • Automatic time-out based on flow rate
  • Available on Low and Low Integrated Base models

Tailor it to Fit

BASYS® has a robust range of features, options and user enhancements that can be customized to fit the needs of any application. Configurability, combined with interchangeable componentry, delivers a truly modular approach that also streamlines the time and costs associated with service and maintenance throughout the life of the product.
