Show­ers of bril­liance

CON­SUMERS are of­ten un­aware of the func­tions of var­i­ous knobs or lights. So Rin­nai has de­signed its first LED il­lu­mi­nated wa­ter heater to help peo­ple avoid con­fu­sion. In Au­gust, the com­pany launched its Ore Se­ries elec­tric wa­ter heater with the con­cept of trans­form­ing raw stones to re­veal its true worth.

Rin­nai mar­ket­ing man­ager, Jean Se said, “We de­signed our heater to please the eye with­out com­pro­mis­ing on func­tion­al­ity. It’s safe and easy to use, saves en­ergy and durable.”

The min­i­mal­is­tic de­sign of the elec­tric wa­ter heater in­te­grates an LED back­light, which also serves as a safety func­tion, onto the front panel.

Apart from the LED back­light, the heater fea­tures only one knob at its front and does away with sec­ondary con­trols. The other but­tons, such as the con­trols for pump speed and the Resid­ual Cur­rent De­vice (RCD) Test but­ton, are tucked con­ve­niently at the side. All that is re­quired to con­trol the wa­ter heater is to turn that sin­gle knob.

To pro­vide con­sumers with con­stant re­as­sur­ance that the RCD is work­ing, Rin­nai has com­bined this LED light with the standby light. When­ever the main switch for the wa­ter heater is turned on out­side the bath­room, the LED light at the top not only shows this, it also in­di­cates safety from light­ning strikes and cur­rent leak­age. The sec­ond LED light in­di­cates that the heater is turned on or work­ing.

Any cur­rent leak­age in the heater will prompt the RCD to cut the flow of elec­tric­ity. It also con­tains a Dual Over Tem­per­a­ture Safety Cut-Off that acts as an anti-scald­ing ther­mal safety de­vice with a wa­ter tem­per­a­ture ac­cu­racy set­ting – once the tem­per­a­ture ex­ceeds 55°C, the ther­mo­stat will re­set au­to­mat­i­cally.

If the tem­per­a­ture ex­ceeds 85°C, the ther­mo­stat will be com­pletely cut off and can only be re­set man­u­ally by elec­tri­cal tech­ni­cians.

The elec­tric wa­ter heater also comes with the choice of an AC or DC pump. For a higher flow rate, Rin­nai sug­gests the model with the AC booster pump. On the other hand, for a heater that’s pow­er­ful, silent and saves en­ergy, choose the DC In­verter silent pump. The three phase brush­less DC mo­tor tech­nol­ogy con­sumes only 55 watts – less than half of what an AC mo­tor uses, sav­ing up to 50% en­ergy.

The heater is en­closed with an ABS plas­tic wa­ter­proof cas­ing that com­plies with the IP25 Safety Stan­dard to pro­tect it from wa­ter jet spray. Its built-in surge pro­tec­tor will shield it from dam­age if struck by light­ning and the auto-flow sen­sor will shut the heater off when the wa­ter flow is too low to avoid “dry burn”, which re­sults in an over­heat­ing of the sys­tem.

“To­day we’ve made our first step in elec­tric wa­ter heat­ing with our first elec­tric in­stant wa­ter heater,” Jean says. “Our prod­ucts are al­ways catered to your needs, be it in the kitchen or in the bath­room.”

The elec­tric in­stant wa­ter heaters can be found in elec­tri­cal stores and shops that sell kitchen and bath­room equip­ment.
