The water sensor is an advanced microprocessor based design capable of detecting distilled water. The sensor plugs into any of our intelligent SensorProbes, such as the SensorProbe2, the SensorProbe8, or any SecurityProbe.
This AKCP water sensor is an exclusive design capable of detecting the presence of even distilled water. The water sensor contains microprocessor controlled capacitance measuring circuitry. This is far more precise than standard commercially available water sensors which measure the resistance of water. The resistance of water can vary depending upon the impurities in the water. Normal resistance type monitors are unable to detect the presence of distilled water due to its high resistance.
The entire circuit is encased in epoxy allowing the water sensor to function while submerged in water.
The sensorProbe will retain any error condition until it is read via an snmp get. Therefore if a water sensor encounters a critical condition at any time it will report that condition before it returns to a normal state
The water sensor detects water leaks and flooding with a WET/DRY indication in software. SNMP polling via snmp get available. Web browser interface available. When an alarm condition is activated the description and location of the fault can be sent via email, page.
