Water Detection System Protects Datacenter
Real-world conditions, even in "clean" datacenters require rugged sensor cables, built from 100% non-corroding materials, and equipped with low profile connectors for ease of maintenance. Leak detection systems are often operating for years before a leak occurs. There is only one chance for early detection and location. After 20 years of development and improvements, the Patented Tracetek system is still the most accurate and reliable leak detecting and locating system.
This typical under raised floor sensor cable installation illustrates why only the most durable sensor cable (orange wire by stanchion running below datacom wiring) should be used. Conduits, copper grounding wires, and telecom wiring bundles cross over the sensor cables in many locations. The Tracetek sensor cable is insensitive to pressure and kinking, and can be provided with low profile connectors for ease of future removal for cleaning.
This example of the contamination present in a "clean" datacenter illustrates why only non-metallic, non-corroding materials must be utilized in the sensor cable. Only Tracetek uses conductive polymeric construction and insulation, exposing no metal to the environment to corrode.
