Available as standard 5 and 10 metre lengths, Hydrowire is a flexible cable which will continuously monitor large areas. When even a small amount of water comes into contact with Hydrowire it is absorbed by capillary action thereby triggering an alarm. After the source of the leak has been removed, Hydrowire will dry out in around 20 minutes for use again. Unplugging or cutting the Hydrowire will be immediately indicated on the control panel by the line fault indicator. Longer runs can be made by simply plugging lengths of Hydrowire together. Special lengths can be made to order. Each zone requires a junction box and an end of line DIN plug.
