Detect water and acid leaks over large area!

With the ropeWater sensor you can protect your essential equipment from potentially harmful water damage.

This water/battery acid sensor is a switch type that will be on or off and will detect the presence of water or battery acid if any portion of the rope becomes wet. This sensor comes fully assembled including the Water/Acid sensing rope, the non-sensing cable that connects the rope to the sensing module and the main sensing module that connects via CAT5 LAN cable to the sensorProbe\securityProbe 5E.

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. 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 presence, or non-presence of water/battery acid 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 your network using any Network Management System.

Each ropeWater/Acid sensor comes complete with a 5 foot CAT5 cable that connects the main sensing module to either the sensorProbe or the securityProbe’s RJ-45 sensor ports, or you can use your own CAT5e/6 LAN cable (up to 100 feet or 30 meters).

Ideal for use in basements and under false floors and roof spaces, the ropeWater sensor can cover a large area. Combined with any of the sensorProbe series or securityProbe series units it will give you advance notice of any water leaks or flooding. The sensor will retain it’s error condition until it is read via an SNMP get. Therefore if the sensor encounters a critical condition at anytime it will report that condition before it returns to a normal state.

In power monitoring situations where backup battery and UPS are used to ensure constant power supply there is a risk of battery’s leaking harmful battery acid. Use this rope sensor underneath backup battery banks to give advanced warning of battery acid leaks.

Note: This product is designed for short term exposure to battery acid only. Tested with 40% concentrate Sulphuric acid (H2SO4)
