General Description

The ProTAACS Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) Water Rope Sensor detects conductive liquids anywhere along the length of the detection rope by using two wires covered with conducting polymer. When water or conductive liquid contacts the rope, the sensor will immediately transmit data to iProTAACS. The sensor rope dries quickly allowing the sensor to reset for next use. The detection rope can be expanded up to 100 feet by simply clicking additional 10 foot sections of detection rope together. Additional sections of water detection rope are available at

Commercial Grade Sensors

ProTAACS commercial-grade sensors are designed for applications in ordinary environments (normal room temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure). Do not subject these sensors to the following, as these environmental aggressors could degrade the device and its performance, leading to failures and burn-out:

  • Corrosive or deoxidizing gas, e.g., chlorine gas, hydrogen sulfide gas, ammonia gas, sulfuric acid gas, andnitric oxides
  • Volatile or flammable gas
  • Dusty conditions
  • Extremely low or high pressures
  • Wet or excessively humid locations
  • Places where saltwater, oils, chemical liquids, or organic solvents are routinely present
  • Applications/locations prone to excessive or strong vibration
  • Other sites where similar hazardous conditions exist

Use these products within the ProTAACS-specified temperature range. Higher temperatures could deteriorate both the product and its functionality.
