Hydrosense Water Detection

The Hydrosense Water Leakage Detection System is designed to protect areas where water ingress could seriously damage electrical, communication and computer networks. When installed in vulnerable areas it continuously monitors for water leaks.

Hydrosense can be installed in a wide range of applications including HVAC, sprinkler systems and water-cooled plant.

Water Detection

A Hydrosense System has two methods of leak detection, or .detection is provided by Hydrowire water sensitive cables connected to the control panel via a special Connection Box using simple two core leader cable. Available as standard 5 and 10 metre lengths, pre-terminated with DIN plugs, Hydrowire is a flexible cable which will continuously monitor large areas. When even a small amount of water comes into contact with Hydrowire it will trigger an alarm. Hydrowire will dry out in around 20 minutes for use again. Each zone requires a junction box and an end of line plug. For areas where continuous detection is not required zone breaker

cables are available. detection is provided by Floor, Drip Tray Probes and Float Switches – all connected to the control panel by simple two core leader cable. The Floor Probe is fixed to the floor and adjusted to give the required detection level and connected to the control panel via a junction box. The Drip Tray Probe has exactly the same facilities as the Floor Probe but has a bracket for mounting onto the side of an ACU drip tray.

The Hydrowire and Probes 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 building management system. When an alarm is raised, Fire-Cryer voice sounders can be used to broadcast an unambiguous message thus avoiding confusion with other sounders on site.
