LUXURY'S AT YOUR FINGERTIPS WITH THE INNOVATIVE AND INDULGENT ioDIGITAL® SYSTEM FROM MOEN®

North Olmsted, Ohio... From U2 to Frank Sinatra... your iPod has your favorite songs personalized the way you choose, to meet your every musical desire. Your laptop? Calls up your preferred websites with the touch of a button. And your Google page? Pulls up your calendar - by day, month, year... however you choose. There's no doubt we're living in a digital world - but one that we can easily customize to fit our every desire.

So, why not personalize your shower or bathing experience with a touch of technology?

Leave it to the minds at Moen®, the number one faucet brand in North America, to do just that. Moen is bringing the benefits of technology to the bathroom with ioDIGITAL®, the revolutionary, innovative and easy-to-use interface that gives consumers the ability to set and maintain water temperature and flow with electronic precision. The ioDIGITAL interface is extremely versatile and is available for three applications: vertical spa, shower and Roman tub.

"With ioDIGITAL, it's like having your own personal digital 'butler' - that will set your vertical spa with the perfect temperature and flow; turn on your shower from across the room or while still in bed; or even top off your bath with hot water," said Brian Mocny, senior product manager, Moen. "And the best part is that you can do all of this as easily as if you were programming a car radio. It's that simple."

The foundation of ioDIGITAL is its intelligent interface. Providing quick, visual feedback, LED indicators flash until the requested settings are achieved - no more guessing if your shower or bath is ready. Each LED on the temperature indicator represents a precise temperature range, which allows the consumer to adjust the exact temperature to their liking. Even if water is turned on in other parts of the home, ioDIGITAL will virtually eliminate any noticeable fluctuation in water temperature. The LEDs will even alert the consumer if the hot water supply happens to run low.

One of the greatest advantages of ioDIGITAL technology is the ability to program preferred settings into memory. Up to four different presets can easily be programmed within seconds, allowing every member of the family their own unique setting - from an invigorating morning shower to a relaxing evening escape.

ioDIGITAL technology is powered by an electronic valve that manages the hot and cold water supply to precisely maintain the perfect temperature. This ground-breaking valve can be located up to 30 feet from the tub or shower -- in a linen closet, vanity, basement, attic or under the tub -- for easy installation and retrofit flexibility.

"With ioDIGITAL, Moen has established a new benchmark for showering sophistication and intelligence in the bathroom industry," explained Mocny. "We've had such a tremendous response to ioDIGITAL and we're proud to be leading the development of the digital showering genre. As the leading faucet brand in North America, we feel it's our responsibility to bring ground-breaking products to market and help position digital as one of the hottest product sectors in the bathroom market."

ioDIGITAL Vertical Spa
For the ultimate blend of technology and indulgence, the ioDIGITAL vertical spa offers command of precise temperature and flow, four custom presets and one-touch activation of multiple water spray outlets. The consumer can choose custom settings with a showerhead, body spray, handshower or rainshower... or choose them all.

Specific features include:

  • Four programmable presets
  • LCD screen which displays the current temperature, active spray outlets and preset activation
  • Pause feature, which briefly interrupts the shower while the user shampoos or shaves, then returns to the previous settings
  • The wall-mounted interface is available in Chrome, LifeShine® Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze finishes
  • Optional remote control (available in Chrome or Black) offers the ability to turn the shower on from across the room or while still in bed

The ioDIGITAL vertical spa trim components are built on Moen's M•PACT® common valve system, which allows a homeowner to change the spa style or finish without having to change the valve or a builder to install the valve before trim is chosen. The ioDIGITAL vertical spa trim is available in a neutral design which beautifully complements any home décor.

ioDIGITAL Shower
Similar to the vertical spa functionality, the ioDIGITAL shower interface will recall a preferred temperature and flow at the push of a button, and the easy-to-read LED indicators will alert the user when the preferred shower matches the settings. No longer will homeowners have to guess if their shower has reached the right temperature - ioDIGITAL will alert them when it is ready.

Specific features include:

  • Four programmable presets
  • Simple dials (one for temperature/one for flow) which allow consumers to quickly and accurately set the preferred combination of temperature and flow
  • Pause feature, which briefly interrupts the shower while the user shampoos or shaves, then returns to the previous setting
  • The wall-mounted interface is available in Chrome, LifeShine Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze
  • Optional remote control (available in Chrome or Black) offers the ability to turn on the shower from across the room or while still in bed

ioDIGITAL Roman Tub
One of the most unique applications in the ioDIGITAL suite is the Roman tub. This revolutionary product will not only fill the tub to the perfect temperature, but even fill it to the desired level.

Specific features include:

  • Three programmable presets
  • Child Lock feature disables all controls and remote operation for added safety
  • Interface is waterproof, allowing the user to safely install in or near the bath area
  • Available with or without handshower
  • The wall-mounted interface is available in Chrome, LifeShine Brushed Nickel and Oil Rubbed Bronze finishes
  • Optional remote control (available in Chrome or Black) offers the ability to turn on the tub from across the room - up to 30 feet away; or press the Hot Top Off feature to easily warm your bath by filling the tub at the lowest flow setting with the hottest water temperature

The ioDIGITAL Roman tub is compatible with a wide range of Moen's Roman tub styles, including the 90°™, Voss™, Kingsley™, Rothbury™ and Icon™ bath suites, to coordinate with any decorating style.

"For decades, homeowners have trusted Moen to deliver the most reliable, durable, high-quality products," added Mocny. "That's the icing on the cake with ioDIGITAL - builders can offer homeowners the benefits of innovative technology in the bath, backed by a name they can trust... Moen."
