Designed to monitor a large number of areas for water leaks using a 4 core data cable to between 1 and 16 remote outstations. When water or a fault is detected by one of the outstations, the controller displays the type of alarm (“Water detected” or “Zone fault”) and location (“Floor 4 male toilets”) along with an audible warning.

The LD64 water leak detection system has been designed to continuously monitor a large number of areas for water leaking from pipe work, air conditioning units, shower rooms, tea points, kitchens overflow systems damaged water tanks, overflowing sump tanks or ingress of water from outside the building.

The system consist of a control units containing a alphanumeric display, a Mute, Report, and back light push button, and a common alarm relay, new alarm relay and fault relay. The controller communicates using a 4 core data cable to between one and 16 remote outstations.

Each outstation will be factory configured as a one to four zone unit depending on the number of detection zones in an area, looking for water leaks or fault across the detection sensors. When water or a fault is detected by one of the outstation, the controller will display the type of alarm (“Water detected” or “Zone fault”) and location (“Floor 4 male toilets”), the audible warning device will start and the appropriate alarm relay will close.

The control unit will remain locked in this condition even if the water is removed from the sensor. Only Muting the alarm will unlock the display and stop the sounder. If the alarm is still active after muting, the display will continue to show the alarms location. If the alarm was cleared before the Mute button was operated, the display will revert back to its normal mode.

When the controller is detecting a number of alarms or faults, the “Report” push button can be used to view each one, one at a time. The system can also contains a 10 hour battery backup, water shut off valves, Text and or Email messaging and remote repeat alarm units.

Water Detection Alarm Type LD64

Size 180 x 180 x 80mm

The system consist of a control units containing a alphanumeric display, Mute button, Report button, Back light button, common alarm and fault relays. The controller communicates to between one and 16 remote outstations that are designed to look for water leaks across the detection sensors, and report back to the controller if water has been detected or the zone has become faulty or disconnected. Each of the remote outstations can be factory configured as a 1, 2, 3 or 4 zone unit. When water or a fault is detected by one of the outstation zones, the controller will display the type of alarm (“Water detected” or “Zone fault”) and location (“4 floor male toilets”), the audible warning device will start and the common zone alarm or fault relay will close. The control unit will remain locked in this condition even if the water is removed from the sensor. Only Muting the alarm will unlock the display and stop the sounder. If the alarm is still active after muting, the display will continue to show the alarms location. If the alarm was cleared before the Mute button was operated, the display will revert back to its normal mode.

When the controller is detecting a number of alarms or faults and is not active with a new alarm, the display will show the number of current alarm and faults on the system. To find the location of all the current alarm or faults, pressing the “Report” button invites you to view them one at a time. The system can also contains a 10 hour battery backup in the event of a mains power failure.

Outstation type OS4V

Water leak detection with Valve shut off valve control

OS4

Size 120 x 120 x 60mm

Outstation type OS4

Standard 1 to 4 zone water leak detection

OS4V

Size 180 x 130 x 80mm

Two types of outstations are available, the standard 1 to 4 zone type OS4 or the 1 to 4 zone with water valve control type OS4V. The OS4 unit only reports back to the main control unit if a leak or fault is found on any of its zones. The OS4V type will also control water valves to stop the flow of water when a leak is detected. Any or all of the OS4V zones can operate a water valve allowing, for example, zones 1 and 3 operated a 25mm water valve whilst zones 2 and 4 only reporting the presents of water. Inside the OS4V outstation a lamp for each zone has been provided for local indication of a water leak.

Unlike some other water detection units on the market, our system uses an AC signal within the sensors. Using alternating current stops electrolyses which causes the sensors to disintegrate leaving the system unable to detect water. The use of alternating current also allows the sensors to be continually monitored even when submersed in water. This allows the system to self reset after water has been removed from the sensor. Also unlike other systems, only one zone is activated at any one time i.e. the system poles through each of the zones one at a time. This eliminated cross talk between zones leading to false alarms being generated.

Beacon for remote indication of an alarm

This 12VDC Flashing beacon can be used to advise of an alarm were noise is an issue such as hospital corridors or noisy environments.

Beacon

SMS Text Messaging alert unit

For unmanned areas or to advise maintenance staff of a problem. With the addition of our SMS Text Messaging alert unit, an alarm will also be sent in text form to one or two phones. This unit is usually added where the alarm unit is mounted remote from maintenance staff, or in unmanned areas.
