Series WD3 Water Leak Detector

Battery or External Powered, SPST or DPDT Relays

The SERIES WD3 Water Leak Detectors protect equipment from water damage by detecting the presence of water in drip pans in air handler units, under raised floors in data centers, 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 housing. Depending on the model ordered, audible and visual alerts provide local indication of the alarm condition and an internal switch will give remote indication or control to prevent further build up of water.

For applications where power is not available, the Model WD3-BP-D1-A is battery powered. Otherwise, either AC or DC supply voltages can be used to power the water detector. The sensing height can be adjusted to as low as 1/32" using the included adjustable mounting bracket. The mounting bracket can attach to any flat surface by either using the attached adhesive strips or mounting screws.
