“Water – in the right place – is our most important commodity but water leaks, in the wrong place at the wrong time can damage a business in a big way. What seems like an insignificant problem can cost millions when it comes to lost computer data, downed telecommunications switches, damaged files, ruined works of art, or water-soaked rare books. Personnel safety can be threatened by roof leaks in buildings, or by fire from water-caused electrical short circuits.”
Water leak detection has become high up on the list of priorities for many companies and industries.
The water leak detector cable. The cable itself is the sensor. Every centimet re of rugged, fire rated cable is sensitive to water and when water comes into contact with the cable, even a few millilitres, the system is able to detect the leak and report the location. The detection cable can be installed in any length from a few metres in a drip tray to hundreds of metres around the perimeter of an office area. Typical applications in office buildings include the monitoring of fan-coil units around the edge of the building office floors, detectors surrounding the central utility core on each floor of the building and dedicated monitoring of leaks in electrical switch gear rooms, server rooms, network communications, etc.
Each section of sensor cable is monitored by an inexpensive Sensor Interface Module. Various models are available with and without relay contacts and digital displays, but all modules are easily networked back to a central alarm panel or interfaced directly to the LAN as easy to design and install as a simple water leak detection system for one or two rooms. for remote alarm and monitoring via cell phones and web browsers or as a major installation in industrial complexes and high rise building.
Amazon Automation ensures that even the smallest leaks are detected and located before a catastrophe ensues.
