Facing downward the leakage sensor is fixed on a mounting plate which is designed with spacers that keep the sensor appr. 5 mm above ground. The goldplated surface and the supply with alternating current prevent electrolysis effects and ensure a reliable switching characteristic even in contaminated media.
The sensor is rear-heated to ensure a reliable function above wet surfaces. The leakage probe is designed to be connected to the B+B universal sensor switching module (SHOP 0557 000-02 / SHOP 0557 0002) or leakage detector (SHOP LEME-24V) which performs the evaluation and provides a switch output with potential-free relay. Suitable liquids are all watery, conductive liquids, such as tap water. The device is not suitable for flammable, aggressive, caustic or electrically insulating liquids.
Areas of application:
leakage detection especially in difficult areas to access due to limited height
detection or monitoring of collection trays for leaking fluids
leakage detection in areas of machine engineering or other industrial applications
