Leak Detection

Fire sprinkler leak detection technology operates similar to radar. Thousands of times each minute, safe energy pulses are sent out on sensor cables. As these energy pulses travel down the cable, reflections are returned to the monitoring unit and a “map” of the reflected energy from the cable is stored in memory. The presence of liquids on the sensor cable, in sufficient quantities to “wet” the cable, will alter its electrical properties. This alteration will cause a change of the reflection at that location. When the panel recognizes a change, it enters into alarm mode and displays the location of the liquid.
