Early Warning Water Leak Detection Equipment and Devices

Water Sensor

Water Leak Detection Equipment

Water leaks can cause great damage to your property especially when it comes to electronics. A water detection sensor detects the presence of water before it contacts electronics or other valuables in the room. Use a leak detection sensor having a water sensor alarm to protect your property. When the leak detection equipment senses a leakage, the property manager is notified immediately so that action to remedy the cause can be taken as soon as possible.

Water Alert® Water Leak Detector

A Unique Accessory Expands the Capability of Water Alert

For large areas or perimeter monitoring, the Water Alert Water Detection Sensor / Sensor Cable system is your best defence against downtime due to water leaks and floods! Extended-range performance is possible for some environments.

Water Sensor Alarm

Water Alert Sensor Cable and Water Detection Cable Sensor are the latest addition to Dorlen Products’ line of early warning leakage detection devices. By using a water sensing alarm combination with Sensor Cable, the user can purchase a system specific to their needs, from a simple local audible water sensor alarm to a large water leak detection system.

SS Series

  • Model SS: Standard Water Alert detector provides audible alarm when activated. Used in applications where tie-in to an existing alarm panel is desired (Building Management System, etc.) and no audible alarm is necessary. Also ideal for extremely harsh environments and can control valves, pumps and other electrical equipment.
  • Model SS-1: Water Alert detector provides local and remote alarms when activated.
  • Model SS-2: Water Alert detector provides audible alarm when activated.
  • Model SS-4: Water Alert detector - No audible alarm...Provides isolated dry relay contacts (DPDT) which transfer and hold when activated. Self-resets.
  • Model SS-5: Water Alert detector provides audible alarm and isolated dry relay contacts (DPDT) which transfer and hold when activated. Self-resets. Used in applications where tie-in to an existing alarm panel is desired (Building Management System, etc.). Can also be used to control valves, pumps and other electrical equipment. (Model XSS-5 when using optional Sensor Cable)
  • Model SS-2100: Water Alert detector used to tie-into all Dorlen' Series 2100 Monitors. Used in applications where a Dorlen Series 2100 Monitor / Power Supply is desired.

VR Series

There are two models designed as vandal resistant with "wash down" mode. The VR Series is specifically designed for use in public and employee restrooms.(or any other areas such as laboratories and clean rooms that require frequent cleaning)

  • Model VR-4: Water Alert detector provides isolated dry relay contacts (DPDT) which transfer and hold when activated. Self-resets.
  • Model VR-2100: Water Alert detector used to tie-into all Dorlen Series 2100 Monitors

Water Sensor Leak Detection Cables Equipment

The water leak sensor cable is a multi-conductor wire with embedded gold plated sensors every 3 feet. These sensors act as extensions of the sensing probes contained within the detector. Should any of the sensors come in contact with liquid moisture the Water Alert will activate. Only 1/16" of water is necessary for detection. The sensor cable comes in three standard lengths 12, 24 and 36 feet. One or Two sensor cables can be connected to any Water Alert. These connections are made with a non-gender, locking connector for a fast and durable installation. If desired, the cable may be kept in place along the floor with adhesive clips (included). Figure 1 above shows the construction of WATER ALERT SENSOR CABLE.

Electronic Water Detector Alarms

Water Alert Sensor Cable does not absorb, trap or wick moisture into the cable for detection unlike coaxial or helical type detection cables. This leads to excessive dry out periods, contamination by dissolved particles and mold and mildew forming, requiring the cable to be uninstalled and cleaned or replaced. This is why Water Alert Sensor Cable has the lowest maintenance and longest warranty available.
