Title: Electromatic pop up drain

Abstract: An "Electromatic Pop Up Drain" for electronically raising and lowering the pop up drain plug in lavatory sinks. The "Electromatic Pop Up Drain" has infrared sensors as a triggering device, ac-dc electric motor as the actuating device, positioning and connective linkage. The user actuates the drain plug by passive hand motion detected by the infrared sensors. This detection device triggers a sequence of events that leads to the closing of the drain plug. A second detection of hand movement by the infrared sensors cause the drain plug to open allowing for the water or liquid to drain freely from the sink.
