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.
