GEESYS water leakage detection system, Building automation system — Home automation system
GEESYS Water Leakage Detection System:
Water leak detection equipment is designed to maximize protection by having continuous monitoring 24/7. GEESYS water leak detection equipment is
easy to install. Detect small leaks such as condensate water overflow, chiller water leaks, plumbing line cracks, heating/cooling piping leaks, outside
seepage and more before damage and downtime occur!
Water Leak Detection is an expression more commonly used for larger, integrated systems installed in "high-tech" buildings or those containing valuable
artifacts, materials or other assets where early notification of a potentially damaging leak would be beneficial.
The Water Leak Detection industry is small and specialized with only a few manufacturers operating world-wide. The original application was in the void
created by "computer room" floors in the days of large main-frame computer systems. These use a modular, raised floor based around a structural "floor tile"
usually 600mm square and supported at the corners by pedestals. The void created gave easy access and routing for the mass of power, networking and other
interconnecting cables associated with larger computer systems - processors, drives, routers etc. mainframe computers also generated large amounts of heat so
a void under the floor could also used as a plenum to distribute and diffuse chilled air around the computer room. The void therefore was like to have chilled
water pipes running through it along with the drains for condensates associated with refrigeration plant. In addition designers also found the floor void a very
convenient place to route other wet services feeding bathrooms, radiators and other facilities.
Al leak occurring within a floor void would therefore go unnoticed until the hydrostatic head of pressure meant that the water found its way through to floors below
where its dripping through the ceiling would be noted or, and more disconcerting, the water would penetrate the joints and connectors of the power or network cabling
and cause system failure from short circuit
"Water – in the right place – is our most important commodity but water leaks,
in the wrong place at the wrong time can damage a business in a big way. What seems like an insignificant problem can cost millions when it comes to lost computer data, downed
telecommunications switches, damaged files, ruined works of art, or water-soaked rare books. Personnel safety can be threatened by roof leaks in buildings, or by fire from
water-caused electrical short circuits."
Water leak detection has become high up on the list of priorities for many companies and industries.
The water leak detector cable, the cable itself is the sensor. Every centimet re of rugged, fire rated cable is sensitive to water and when water comes into contact with the cable,
even a few milliliters, the system is able to detect the leak AND report the location. The detection cable can be installed in any length from a few meters in a drip tray to hundreds
of meters around the perimeter of an office area. Typical applications in office buildings include the monitoring of fan-coil units around the edge of the building office floors, detectors
surrounding the central utility core on each floor of the building and dedicated monitoring of leaks in electrical switch gear rooms, server rooms, network communications, etc.
Each section of sensor cable is monitored by an inexpensive Sensor Interface Module. Various models are available with and without relay contacts and digital displays, but all modules are
easily networked back to a central alarm panel or interfaced directly to the LAN as easy to design and install as a simple water leak detection system for one or two rooms. For remote alarm
and monitoring via cell phones and web browsers or as a major installation in industrial complexes and high rise buildings.
The developed water sensing cable has passed the most rigorous of examinations and has been at the cutting edge of distributed sensing detection for decades, protecting tens of thousands of
locations around the globe with their water leak detection technology.
GEESYS's technology to ensure that even the smallest leaks are detected and located before a catastrophe ensues.

GEESYS Water Leakage Detection System
The mainframe computer room has largely disappeared but the application has remained with almost universal use of “computer-room” style raised floors in
nearly all new commercial and office construction. To warrant the installation of leak detection the operator has to perceive the risk in addition to the
circumstances but most Mechanical and Electrical Design Engineers will take a view of the risk of damage from a leak in terms of affect on the client’s own operations,
services and assets and, often as important, those of their adjoining neighbors and the those on floors below.
The installation of leak detection systems is therefore becoming more commonplace in most new commercial office construction schemes along with the more obvious targets
of museums, galleries and archives.
Leak detection systems must be unobtrusive, effective and robust enough to withstand getting dirty and the moderate physical abuse of other works being carried out under the same floor.
Zoned systems have a reputation for being safe, reliable and not prone to the same types of false alarms which those systems which use cumulative resistance techniques.
The leak detection industry is very small and it can be expected that manufacturers will also offer an installation and after sales service.
The liquids leak detection system shall identify any abnormal presence of liquid on any point of its connected sense cables, to the nearest meter. In the event of leakage, an audible alarm is triggered,
the indicator light changes to red and the display shows details of the fault, and its location to the nearest meter. Sense cable length
The system shall be capable of monitoring up to 1800 meter of cable from a single monitoring unit. This length shall not include the jumper cable. Multiple leaks
The system shall be capable of managing information of all leaks related to the number of sense cables installed. (E.g. 120 sense cables installed=120 possible detected and displayed leaks). Cable break fault
Besides leak, the system shall be capable to detect circuit interruption (cable break) on any of its connected sense cables. In the event of a "cable break", an audible alarm is triggered, the indicator light
changes to red and the display shows "cable break" and its location. Liquid types
The system shall be capable of detecting conductive and non-conductive liquids, as water, bases, acid, hydrocarbon and solvents using different types of sense cables. These sense cables shall be able to be connected
simultaneously on one digital monitoring unit. Security
To enter the configuration menu, the system shall require a password
Product Sense Cable Performance
The sense cable shall continuously perform three functions: to detect the presence of liquid at any point along its length, to detect a cut or break at any point along its length and to communicate digitally the nature and
location of the fault to the nearest meter. Construction
The sense cable shall consist of a helically-winded central core (data bus), on which PEHD (Polyethylene high-density) conductor wires are spiraled. This shall ensure a prompt detection as well as a short drying time after
the risk is eliminated. The insulation and signal wires shall be of flame-retardant polymer. The jacket of sense wires shall be of conductive polymer on the ground wire. The active sense wire shall have special dust-proof construction
and shall not be affected if in contact with any solid particles.
The sense cables shall be connected via the male and female connectors. A microcontroller shall be embedded in the sense cable to ensure digital and independent communication between each sense cable and the digital monitoring unit.
