Product Information

Product Description

Authorized North America Distributor Stamp

Detect water leaks over a large area! With the ropeWater sensor you can protect your essential equipment from potentially harmful water damage. It is ideal for use:

  • in basements
  • under false floors
  • roof spaces.

This water sensor is a switch type that will be on or off and will detect the presence of water if any portion of the rope becomes wet. This sensor comes fully assembled with

  • Water sensing rope,
  • non-sensing cable that connects the rope to the sensing module, and
  • main sensing module that connects via CAT5 LAN cable to the AKCP sensorProbe or securityProbe controller.

The sensing rope cable can be 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 controllers using standard CAT5 LAN cable.

The presence, or non-presence of water 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 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 CAT5 LAN cable (up to 100 feet or 30 meters).

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.
