A continuous invisible light beam is emitted from the sensor, as the user enters the beams range (22" to 42") the beam is reflected into the scanner window and transformed into a low voltage electrical circuit which activates a "hold" mode as long as the user remains in the range of the sensor, as the user steps out of the beam range the circuit waits 3 seconds then initiates an electrical "one-time" signal that activates the solenoid beginning the flush cycle, it then automatically resets the light beam. Battery life 3 years at 4,000 flushes per month.
