Leak Detection System

Our Leak Detection System

Prevention is better than cure.


A reliable leak detection system is crucial in critical infrastructure. Data facilities and server rooms function as nerve centres for most modern businesses, where thousands of optical and electrical connections are concentrated in a densely packed space.

Water or coolant piping is often integrated into data equipment to keep equipment cool. These precision cooling systems, however, pose a possible threat of accidental leaks that may interrupt server operations.

Raised floor facilities are more vulnerable due to a risk of concealed leakage underneath. In unprepared scenarios, an alarm may only go off after water has risen to critical levels.

A dependable leak detection system allows for early intervention of such incidences. Through swift identification, our various leak detection options enable prompt intervention, minimizing downtime and safeguarding the integrity of data center operations.

Moreover, the proactive nature of leak detection systems ensures that data center managers can implement preventive measures, such as sealing vulnerable areas or repairing faulty equipment, before leaks pose a threat to the facility’s infrastructure. Stay ahead of leaks and protect your facilities or equipment with our reliable solution.

Suitable Applications :

  • Raised floor computer facility
  • ISP/co-location facilities
  • Fiber optic switch sites
  • Racked equipment
  • Control / Trading rooms
  • Achival storage
  • PBX rooms, room server equipment rooms
  • Executive offices
  • Museums, historic buildings

Leak Detection Modules

With point sensing approach to leak detection, liquid must reach the location of a probe to trigger an alarm. Depending on the circumstances, a leak may grow and spread considerably before reaching an individual probe. With distributed sensing, liquid is detected if it makes contact anywhere along the length of sensing cable that monitors an entire area. TraceTek water detection system is able to detect the leak at its source, signals the alarm and displays the exact distance to the leak which allow users to quickly locate the leak source.

Water Detection System TTSIM-PLUS

The TTSIM-PLUS is an integrated water detection system implemented with the TTSIM-2 as its sensor interface module which has the capacity to monitor up to 150m (500ft) of sensor cable, it also has a built-in LCD display with LED and leak alarm signaling. This integrated solution acts as a stand-alone system which is specially designed to cater to server rooms of all sizes.

The external lockable panel enclosure enhanced with reinforced alloy offers dust and mechanical damage resistance to the module, as well as an additional security feature for our clients. The front face of the panel consist of 4 user-friendly LED buttons which indicates power status, leak status, to mute buzzer alarm & system reset. The panel also has a see-through window for engineers to view the leak distance indicated on the TTSIM-2 LCD display should a leak occur. The TTSIM-PLUS is definitely a must have in all server rooms to provide your clients with highest level of water detection and its simplistic design offers ease of operation to both our clients and engineers.

Trace Tek TTSIM-1

The TTSIM-1 Sensor Interface Module monitors up to 5000 feet (1500 m) of TraceTek sensing cable. When liquid is detected, the TTSIM-1 unit communicates either with a TTDM-128 Master Module or directly to a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), building management system, or other host system using standard MODBUS, Opto-22, or Johnson Controls Metasys protocol. TTSIM-1’s low cost makes it economical to build very robust systems with many small independent sensing cable segments. No field calibration is required other than a map to show where the sensor cable has been installed.

Trace Tek TTSIM-1A

The TTSIM-1A Sensor Interface Module monitors up to 150 meters (500 feet) of TraceTek sensing cable. When liquid is detected, the TTSIM-1A unit indicates the leak with an LED, and switches a relay to provide local voltage-free contact closure. The TTSIM-1A can also communicate to a host monitoring system such as a TraceTek TTDM-128 or directly to a PLC or other host system using standard protocols.

Trace Tek TTSIM-2

The TraceTek TTSIM-2 is a sensor interface module with capacity to monitor up to 150m (500ft) of sensor cable. Leak alarm signaling is via 3-digit leak location on built-in LCD display, LED, dry contact relay, and serial data to a PLC or host system using standard protocols. It can be used as a stand-alone leak detection alarm unit, or in networks with other TTSIM, TT-NRM, TTDM-128, or TT-TS12 modules. Available in 24, 120 or 230 Vac 50/60 Hz or 12 or 24 Vdc.

Trace Tek TS-12

The TraceTek TT-TS12 Touch Screen Panel provides a graphic user interface to manage and display information from a network of up to 250 external leak detection circuits. With interactive and dynamic leak location maps and displays, the leak location can be displayed on the floor plan, piping layout or photo of a single piece of equipment. Provides a quick status overview of all leak detection cables. Works with TTSIM or wireless mesh transmitters.

Trace Tek TTDM-128

The TTDM-128 module directly monitors up to 1500 m (5000 ft) of sensor cable and a network of up to 128 remote TraceTek modules. The remote modules may be a combination of sensor interface modules (TTSIM), relay modules (TT-NRM) or additional TTDM-128 modules. With its networking capability, the TTDM-128 provides tremendous fl exibility in terms of system layout options and monitoring capability.

Trace Tek TTC-1

The TraceTek TTC-1 module offers a low cost option for liquid leak detection. It is designed for use with any TraceTek sensing cable, and can be integrated into a variety of monitoring systems. The TTC-1 module includes three sets of relay contacts which can be used for remote annunciation and equipment control. An optional remote annunciation device is available.


The TT-FLAT PROBE is a special purpose probe designed to detect water leaks in specific locations. It is intended to be floor or tray mounted, using either screw or adhesive attachment. The unit has an orange color to promote visibility in the installed location.

Trace Tek TT-FFS

The TraceTek Fast Fuel Sensor (FFS) is a fast acting probe designed to detect hydrocarbon fuel floating on water, spreading on a flat surface or collecting in a sump. The probe ignores water, but detects a thin film of fuel floating on the surface. Reaction time for the probe is typically a few seconds for light or middle weight fuels such as gasoline, jet fuel, and diesel. It is also responsive to crude oil and some heavier weight fuels and heating oils but becomes progressively slower as the fuel volatility decreases.

Meeting the FM 7745 Approval Standard for Diesel Leak Detectors for detecting Diesel Fuel leaks in commercial buildings, the implementation of TT-FFS improve the safety of diesel generators used for back-up electrical power and reduce the risk of fire if a leak were to occur.


Sensing Cables

TraceTek unique sensing cable makes it possible to detect leaks at their source. Extremely resistant to corrosion and abrasion, the 4-wire small and rugged cable dries and clears quickly and the cable construction leaves virtually no place to trap moisture. TraceTek developed water sensing cable with the ability to detect and precisely locate any water leakage.

Sensing Cables TT1000

TraceTek TT1000 sensing cables detect the presence of water at any point along their length. Installed with a TraceTek alarm and locating module, the cable senses water intrusion, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location.

Sensing Cables TT1100-OHP

The TraceTek TT1100-OHP water sensing cable is intended for use on least accessible areas such as bottom side of suspended or rack mounted pipe to detect presence of water at any point along their length together with TraceTek alarm and locating module. With additional layer of braided fiber jacket, the TT1100-OHP is also very useful in dirty areas where contamination can cause problems.

Sensing Cables TT3000

TraceTek TT3000 sensing cable detects the presence of conductive liquids at any point along its length. Most acids and bases and even deionized water can be sensed and located. Installed with a TraceTek alarm and locating module, the cable senses the presence of fluid, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location.

Sensing Cables TT5000

TraceTek TT5000 sensing cable detects the presence of liquid hydrocarbon fuels at any point along its length, yet does not react to the presence of water. Installed with a TraceTek alarm and locating module, the cable senses the liquid, triggers an alarm, and pinpoints the location of the leak within one meter.
