GuardSen GS-LDC-1 sensing cables detect the presence of water at any point along their length. Installed with a GuardSen alarm module (GS-LDA-1), the cable senses water intrusion and triggers an alarm. It provides distributed leak detection and location over a wide range of areas.
The GS-LDC-1 sensing cables are available in a variety of lengths to provide as much coverage as needed.
