The Spot Water Sensor is an advanced microprocessor based design capable of detecting distilled water. Standard water detectors are unable to detect distilled water and water with other impurities due to them using a resistance type circuit. These resistance types rely on electrolytes present in the water, therefore being unable to detect distilled water due to it’s high resistance.
The entire circuit is encased in epoxy giving it a waterproof finish and able to withstand being submerged in water for prolonged periods. It has an SNMP OID for monitoring across a network, and will therefore report it’s critical condition at anytime before returning to it’s normal state.
Notifications can be sent to you via SNMP traps, or E-mail (sensorProbe base units) or using any of the wide range of alerts available on AKCP base units.
