Each AVTECH Flood Sensor with attached sensor cable is activated by liquid (i.e. water, fluid, etc.) making contact with the attached Flood Sensor Cable of any length. The Flood Sensor Cable can detect as little water as a single drop. Once liquid is detected the Flood Sensor triggers an alarm condition allowing the Room Alert hardware, Device ManageR software and/or other monitoring application to send out alerts and/or take automatic corrective action.
This is an instant ‘Plug & Play’ sensor via one of the switch sensor channels on the back of any compatible Room Alert ID box. The Flood Sensor Cable can be extended by adding one or more 8′ Flood Sensor Cable Extensions (sold separately). Cable distance can be extended from the standard 25′ to approximately 900′ by using standard speaker wire, twisted pair or any reliable low voltage 2-wire cable in order to place Flood Sensor and attached sensor cable away from Room Alert unit, on a different floor, above a drop ceiling or under a raised flood.
