Specialist provider of a complete range of practical and affordable instrumentation, Dwyer Instruments announces the release of its new Series WD3 water leak detectors.
Designed to prevent water damage to equipment, Series WD3 water leak detectors detect the presence of water in drip pans in air handler units, under raised floors in data centres, or on floors around sump pumps and drains.
Water is detected once it reaches a level that bridges the two conductive strips on the bottom of the detector’s housing. Audible and/or visual alerts depending on the detector model will provide local indication of the alarm condition with an internal switch giving remote indication or control to prevent further build-up of water.
Series WD3 water leak detectors are also available in a battery powered version, the Model WD3-BP-D1-A, for applications where power is not available. The battery is powered using a coin cell 3V lithium battery. Either AC or DC supply voltages can be used to power the water detector in general conditions. The sensing height can be adjusted to as low as 1/32” using the adjustable mounting bracket.
