Product Launch: A brand new leak detection unit without need of conventional power supply to detect any liquid leaks in data centres
TTK is a European manufacturer of liquid leak detection systems that has become a market leader in three decades. The company is participating in the Data Centre World Frankfurt exhibition 2023 with its latest innovation: a satellite water and hydrocarbon detection unit without 230VAC power supply.
TTK unveils the new FG-BB-PoE digital leak detection unit for the first time in Germany. This so-called "satellite" unit is connected to a digital leak monitoring unit (for ex: FG-NET) and allows the capabilities of the latter to be extended. Powered by a PoE switch, it offers great simplicity and flexibility for system deployment.
FG-BB-POE expands the capabilities of a leak monitoring unit by controlling an additional circuit of sense cables over 5 cable lengths, i.e. up to 225 meters. One FG-NET can control up to 16 FG-BB-PoE units.
FG-BB-PoE is equipped with advanced functionalities, such as the possibility of locating several leaks simultaneously, with a location accuracy of one metre. The commands and functions of the device are all centralized on the leak monitoring unit. In addition, FG-BB-PoE does not have a screen, a single indicator light (green or red LED) allows immediate identification of the real state of the unit. If a leak is detected by a sensing cable connected to FG-BB-PoE, the relevant relay is triggered by activating connected equipment and the LED turns red.
The FG-BB-PoE digital unit communicates information to the leak monitoring unit connected to the local area network (BMS) via the TCP/IP and JBUS/MODBUS communication protocols.
FG-BB-PoE is compatible with all TTK digital sense cables: water, acid and hydrocarbon sense cables.
The advantages of the FG-BB-PoE detection unit:
• Flexibility: By eliminating the need for 230VAC power supplies and outlets, the FG-BB-PoE offers great flexibility for system deployment. The installation of the FG-BB-PoE control unit is not limited to positioning near fixed power outlets.
• Simplicity: Simplified installation without the deployment of power cables or additional electrical outlets.
• Reliability: The FG-BB-PoE eliminates the need for a dedicated backup power supply for each piece of equipment. If your PoE switch is connected to an uninterruptible power supply (e.g. UPS), your FG-BB-PoE leak detection panel is always operational even in the event of a power failure, which is important for critical sites such as data centres.
• Profitability: Fewer cables to deploy. Reduce installation costs.
