Conductive leakage detectors
Conductive plate electrodes are designed to signal via a connected electrode relay the presence of a conductive liquid caused, for example, by burst pipes.
Conductive plate electrodes should only be used in normally dry environments. They must be installed on the floor in such a way that the sensor side faces downwards and the label side (PE…) / cable entry (WDX…) upwards.
The conductive plate electrodes are fitted with two electrode plates as sensitive elements:
1 control electrode and 1 earth electrode. If the two electrode plates of a plate electrode come into contact with an electrically conductive liquid (e.g. water, acid etc.), an electrical contact is made and an alarm signal given.
