This sensor is suited to locations that contain fuel storage tanks or fuel transfer stations and is especially ideal for remote locations that use diesel fuel generators. The AKCP ropeFuel sensor is a rope-type leak detector that connects to any AKCP sensorProbe or securityProbe RJ-45 Intelligent Sensor Ports and facilitates the detection of fuel and other liquids.
The ropeFuel sensor detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels at any point along its length. Installed with the AKCP sensor module, the sensor detects the liquid, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location of a leak within a meter, or a foot. Typically this sensor can detect:
- Diesel #1
- Jet AB58
As this sensor is a rope type it is perfect for lying beneath fuel tanks, usually found being used with diesel generators in remote locations where early warning of fuel leakage or theft is vital to maintaining the power supply, either of a UPS or as the main power source.
The AKCP ropeFuel sensor in most cases is for single usage only and must be replaced after exposure to hydrocarbon liquids.
