Water Detection System

  • A HydroSense Water Detection System installed in vulnerable areas will continuously monitor the potential hazards around the clock, year in year out.
  • The HydroSense system has a range of attractive and unobtrusive control panels containing the alarm circuitry, power supply and has the facility for 24 hour battery standby.
  • A HydroSense System has two methods of leak or moisture detection, Linear or Point detection.
  • Linear detection is provided by Hydrowire moisture sensitive cables which are connected to the control panel via a special Connection Box, by simple two core leader cable making installation quick and inexpensive.
  • Point detection is provided by Floor or Drip Tray Probes also connected to the control panel by simple two core leader cable.
  • 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 BMS.

HydroSense 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 via a simple junction box.
  • The Drip Tray Probe has exactly the same facilities as the floor mounting probe but has a bracket for mounting onto the side of an ACU drip tray.


  • 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 or moisture 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.
