locateWater Detector

The AKCP locateWater sensor is a rope type water sensor designed for specific location water detection.

AKCP intelligent sensors

The locateWater sensor can be connected to any one of the sensorProbe or securityProbes RJ-45 Intelligent Sensor ports enabling the unit to detect the specific location of water ingress. This water sensor is a switch type that will be on or off and will detect the presence of water if a specific location on the rope becomes wet.

This is ideal when monitoring for water leaks under raised floor, or false ceiling areas for example. This sensor comes fully assembled and includes the rope portion that is the water sensing cable, the non-sensing area cable (from the rope to the sensing module) and the main sensing module.

Working of the locateWater sensor

The sensing module is then connected to any of the RJ-45 Intelligent sensor ports on the AKCP base units using standard CAT5/6 LAN cable. The specific location of water along the rope can be used to trigger alerts like e-mail, SMS, phone calls and SNMP traps.

The sensor has its own SNMP OID so that it can be monitored over the network using any Network Management System. Each locateWater sensor comes complete with a 5 foot sensor cable that connects the main sensing module to the securityProbes RJ-45 sensor ports, or you can use your own CAT5/6 LAN cable. This cable can be extened up to 100 feet or 30 meters.

Immediate alerting / notification of the precise location of the leak

Once the water reporting chain detects moisture or water, the responsible security personnel are notified via email or SMS.

The high-end monitoring appliances securityProbe Series also dominate the alert types such as phone alarm. Ideal for large infrastructures such as airport halls or hotel facilities is integrated in the security test series control card.


SNMP OIDs for the sensorProbe units are as follows:

  • sensorProbeSwitchWaterRopeLeakLocation .
  • sensorProbeSwitchWaterRopeLength .
  • sensorProbeSwitchWaterRopeUnit .
  • sensorProbeSwitchWaterRopeOhmPerUnit .
  • sensorProbeSwitchWaterRopeRaw .

X where X is port-1

SNMP OIDs for the securityProbe units are as follows:

  • sensorWaterRopeDescription .
  • sensorWaterRopeStatus .
  • sensorWaterRopeGoOffline .
  • sensorWaterRopeLeakLocation .
  • sensorWaterRopeLength .
  • sensorWaterRopeUnit .
  • sensorWaterRopeRaw .

where Y is sensor ID, the dynamically number is generated when the sensor plugged in.
