Water Leakage / Liquid Detection sensor (Line)
With the LeakSense ASC2100-5M sensor you can detect the presence of water or other conductive liquids in a continuous line with no blind spots. Thanks to the cord/string shape of the sensor, you can ensure that any drop of water will be detected as soon as it enters in contact with the sensor. A string of these can detect water leakages in real time at a range of up to of 100m.
This water leakages sensor is specially designed for installation close to pipes and other water transportation tubes in in roofs, kitchens, basements, machine rooms, laundries, etc.
