ropeWater Detector

The ropeWater Sensor features a customizable length rope that detects any water contact along its entire length.

AKCP intelligent sensors

Ideal for lying in large areas like basements, under raised floors in data centers, roof space (raised ceilings) or anywhere where any ingress of water would be catastrophic. This sensor unit will be vital to your customers operations and disaster prevention plans.    

This sensor is a switch type sensor that will be either on or off: The ropeWater Sensor can be plugged into the AKCP sensorProbe or the AKCP securityProbe 5E RJ-45 intelligent sensor ports enabling the unit to measure water ingress in the location the sensor rope has been placed.

Detection of water leakage / spills

With the securityProbe 5E unique mapping feature you can place the ropeWater sensor on a map so you can quickly identify where you may have water ingression. The sensor has its own SNMP OID so that the data can be collected over the network using any Network Management System. 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. The sensing rope cable can be pre-ordered from a 10 foot minimum to any custom run length of up to 165 feet or 50 meters . The non-sensing cable comes in a standard 20 foot run length.

Compatibility of AKCP water detector / sensor water detection chain

The sensor water detection chain is compatible with all sensor and securityProbe IT monitoring systems from the home AKCP.

Connect this water detector at one of the intelligent RJ-45 sensor ports on the AKCP monitoring device.

Construction of the water detector

The sensor water detection chain consists of 2 parts: water reporting chain for the detection of water / moisture and the sensor module. The sensor water detection chain, which can detect the presence of water over its entire length, is ordered in lengths from 3 to 50 meters at Didactum.

The length of the non-sensing sensor module is always 6 meters. Is connected to the Water Sensor detection chain via CAT5 / CAT6 cable to the sensorProbe or securityProbe IT monitoring system.
