Water Leak Detection System
Protect a room or a data cabinet with this Water Leak Detection System.
Use this water-sensing kit to detect leaks
- Connects to an EMS via Analog Input or Analog to Digital Converter
- Get alerts by email or SNMP if water is detected
Water leaks through walls, ceilings, floors and air conditioning evaporator trays - it can kill your gear fast. Detect moisture over a wide area with this detection system.
This leak detection cable can sense the presence of water or other conductive liquid over its entire
length. Typically used to protect computer server rooms from water damage, the Water Leak Detection System attaches to a Geist EMS. When water is detected, the EMS sends alerts by e-mail or SNMP trap.
The sensing tape (orange wire) attaches to the floor using small nylon J-clips.
The sensing tape connects to the leader cable which attaches to the wall mounted interface box. An LED on the system provides a visual indication of a system status.
Connecting to the Geist Climate Monitor
Four signal wires connect to terminals on the interface box. One pair of wires tells if water was detected, while the other tells if the cable is damaged (cable fault). These wires connect the interface box to the climate monitor. There are two ways to connect the signal wires to the environmental monitoring system.
One option is to attach the wire to Analog Input terminals.
The other option is to use two Analog to Digital Converters. Each Analog to Digital Converter converts the analog signal from a pair of wires into digital. This allows you to use digital sensor ports when Analog Inputs aren't available.
The environmental monitoring system continuously monitors the Water Leak Detection System to see if water is detected. If so, the Geist Climate Monitor follows the actions indicated by user-defined alarms.
Options include sending alerts through email or SNMP and depending on the Geist Climate Monitor, trigger an alarm buzzer or energize an output relay. Alarm thresholds are configured through the web interface provided by the Geist Climate Monitor.
