The ropeWater Sensor features a customizable length rope that detects any water contact along its entire length. 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. This can be used to trigger alerts like e-mail, SMS, phone calls and SNMP traps. 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. See
the detailed diagram of the sensor assemply on page number 2 showing the cable.
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 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 ropeWater sensor comes complete with a 5 foot sensor cable that connects the main sensing
module to either the sensorProbe or 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.
