The STF Solutions Ltd Water Detection System installed in vulnerable areas like server rooms, electrical distribution areas and archive storage facilities etc will continuously monitor the potential hazard of water ingress to these critical areas around the clock, year in year out.
How Water Leak Detection Systems Work
The water leak system has two methods of leak or moisture detection, Linear (cable) or Point (probe) detection.
Linear detection is provided by moisture sensitive cables which are connected to the control panel, Point detection is provided by Floor or Drip Tray Probes also connected to the control panel.
Both methods are continuously monitored. Any disconnection or fault is immediately indicated on the control panel. All monitoring indicators can be repeated to remote repeater panels or via volt free contacts to a BMS.
Floor and Drip Tray Mounting Probes
The Floor Probe is simply fixed to the floor and adjusted to give the required detection level and connected to the control panel.
The Drip Tray Probe has exactly the same facilities as the floor mounting probe but has a bracket for mounting onto the side of equipment like the air conditioning unit drip tray.
Moisture Sensitive Cables
Available as standard 5 and 10 metre lengths pre-terminated it is a flexible cable which will continuously monitor large areas. When even a small amount of water or moisture comes into contact with the cable it will trigger an alarm. The cable will dry out in around 20 minutes for use again.
