“Nuisance alarms” could be avoided with TTK water leak sensing cables




Are you experiencing repetitive nuisance alarms on your sensing cables after a few years even a few months of use, without the presence of water?

The “nuisance alarms” disrupt normal site monitoring, a real headache for many facility managers. But did you know these alarms could be avoided with TTK water leak sensing cables whose unique solution prevents dust-caused false alarms?

In a few words, the TTK FG-EC sensing cable can prevent nuisance alarms caused by dust thanks to two features:

  • Its patented and ingenious cable structure allows it to sense only ingress water, not to be disturbed by the presence of dust and all kinds of conductive residue from the environment.
  • Its embedded microcontroller provides supplementary protection by tolerating a level of pollution accumulated on the cable surface.



Typical Applications

FG-EC water sensing cable from TTK is suitable for any indoor applications where leak may occur, such as:

  • Data hall,
  • trading floor,
  • UPS,
  • battery,
  • plant room,
  • tea point,
  • technical area,
  • high value and mission-critical infrastructure.


Thanks to its ability to tolerate dust and metal particle contaminations, the FG-EC cable is suitable to be installed in:

  • lift pits,
  • drip trays,
  • around CRAC units,
  • raised ceilings and raised floors.



Technical Advantages

As the most installed TTK sensing cable in the world, FG-EC incorporates several patented design features besides its “dust resistance”.


  • Rapidly detects and pinpoints the location of a water leak to the nearest metre along the length of the cable.
  • Detects and localizes cable break on the cable.
  • Short drying time.
  • Non-absorbent design that can be reused after leaks, reducing maintenance costs.
  • Easy installation with pre-finished male and female connectors.
  • Flexible design: in both liner and sector mode (via FG-DTC box).
  • Made in Low Smoke Zero Halogen Material
