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.
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 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.
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)
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.
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.
Each Water Alert product is designed specifically to work for a particular setup and purpose. Reviewing the specifications will help in selecting the right product. For example, the SC-12 Water Alert Sensor Cable is ultra flexible and contains an end of the line test push button.
