With the ropeWater sensor you can protect your essential equipment from potentially harmful water damage. Designed and manufactured by AKCP it forms an integral part of your solution for data center monitoring.

Ideal for use in basements and under false floors and roof spaces, the Rope Water sensor can cover a large area. Combined with any of our remote monitoring base units, or wireless tunnel sensors, it will give you advance notice of any water leaks or flooding.

The sensor will retain it’s error condition until it is read via an SNMP get. Therefore if the sensor encounters a critical condition at anytime it will report that condition before it returns to a normal state.
