ThermaSol's MicroTouch Control

Technology is changing at the speed of light,” said Mitch Altman, CEO of ThermaSol. “It’s our business to stay ahead of the technology curve, and we’re committed to having a steam shower experience beyond compare.

MicroTouch channels capacitive touch technology (CCT), used on mobile devices, and adds Infrared Temperature Sensing abilities into their new control, offering users ease of operation and the refinement of world-class electronics.

The sleek control works in the same manner as a smartphone or tablet: with just the touch of your finger, you control the screen. Using capacitive touch technology (CTT), users can easily control their steam shower experience, including; on/off, temperature, PowerFlush system, or recall their last steam setting. Along with its technical capabilities, MicroTouch was designed with a low profile, crisp and clear screen display to enhance its high-end visual appeal. It is offered in Modern, Modern Recessed, Regency, Contemporary and Traditional styles in 14 finishes to match nearly any faucet or plumbing fixture on the market today.

“Technology is changing at the speed of light,” said Mitch Altman, CEO of ThermaSol. “It’s our business to stay ahead of the technology curve, and we’re committed to having a steam shower experience beyond compare – any time we utilize technology to benefit our systems it benefits our patrons as well. MicroTouch is just one of a many innovations we will be unveiling over the next few weeks.”

  • Precise Infrared Temperature Sensing* (patent pending), reads temperature more accurately and much faster than standard contact temperature sensors – in milliseconds!
  • CAN-bus digital cable connection, the most up-to-date technology.
  • Preset 45 minute time setting with enhanced diagnostics.
  • Compatible with ThermaSol’s innovative Solitude Wireless Module and Solitude App from the App Store and Google Play.
