Complete Comms Room Water Leak Detection Package
Monitoring the environmental conditions in a computer room has always been critical because of the risk of lost data. Even smaller Comms Rooms using wall mounted AHUs (Air handling Units) run the risk of water ingress coming into contact with sensitive electronic equipment.
By fitting a water leak detection system in the Comms Room, the risk of costly water damage can be significantly reduced as any water present will be immediately detected and an alarm raised.
The comms room water leak detection kit from Envirotech Alarms Ltd, is specifically designed to protect smaller Computer Rooms up to around 5m x 5m. (other systems are available for larger areas and bigger data centres). The package contains everything required ensuring that installation and the continued operation is as easy as possible. In the pack there is a LeakStop+ alarm panel, a connection cable, 20m of sensor tape, floor clips, mains connection lead and an external beacon.
The LeakStop panel is mounted either inside the Comms Room or just outside. The connection cable is routed down to the floor (or under the floor if the floor is raised). Sensor tape can be positioned either around the periphery of the room or in a zigzag formation allowing maximum coverage. The beacon can be fitted outside the Comms Room usually above the entrance and will flash a bright amber light should a leak be detected. There is also a volt free relay within the LeakStop+ Panel that can be used to connect to the BMS (Building Management System) if required.
It works in the following way: Water (unless purified) contains contaminants such as ions and salts and it’s these within the water that are conductive. The water 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.
In addition to having the ability to detect water leaks the LeakStop+ can also signal an alarm should anything happen to the integrity of the connection cable or sensor tape. Should the connection be accidentally pulled apart or any of the cables damaged some reason, the LeakStop+ Panel will sound a buzzer and switch on a warning light.
