Single zone water leak detection system
The LeakStopper 1 detects the presence of water in environments where it is not supposed to be. Should water be detected the alarm panel will trigger an internal buzzer and an LED will start to flash. There are also a number of volt free relays that will switch when water has been detected.
Water (unless purified) contains contaminants such as ions and salts and it’s these within the water that are conductive. The sensors (conductors) used for leak detection are separated by a carrier and the water acts as a path for very low electrical signal to pass from one to the other. It is this action that triggers the alarm.
