Press release date: August 20, 2013
Cable engineering company Northwire, Inc., (NWI) and RLE Technologies collaborate to protect critical systems and equipment with the next generation of field-proven, environmental monitoring solutions. Ranging from Major League Baseball to national security interests, the breadth of applications for RLE’s solutions are as extensive as their market penetration. With over 7 million feet of Northwire manufactured leak detection sensing cable installed in a wide variety of systems around the globe, RLE’s technically advanced, scalable solutions feature the unique combination of easy installation and customer service supported by highly experienced, custom cable product experts.
Guided by their company Vision, ‘RLE Technologies exists to prevent disasters, preserve our clients’ reputations, and provide peace of mind’, RLE and NWI collaborate to design, engineer, manufacture, and support cutting edge products to protect their customers’ people and assets. “RLE is laser focused on developing exceedingly configurable, ultra-reliable solutions for our customers’ highly sensitive critical environments,” explains Chris Pullen, President of RLE Technologies. “With nearly 30 years of experience providing field-proven disaster mitigation technologies globally, we don’t just have engineers that know how to design and build great products - we have a deep understanding of the industries we support. This enables us to be proactive and prevent real-world problems before they happen.”
While RLE manufactures all of the major monitoring controller solutions for wired and wireless monitoring of critical environments - including leak detection, facility monitoring & managements systems, and system integration, NWI provides the manufacturing support for a key input for the system: the sensing cable systems. The fluid sensing cable acts as a communications lifeline that alerts central command to the presence of water or other conductive fluids that could otherwise wreak havoc on sensitive assets. Manufactured by Northwire for RLE, the conductive fluid sensing cable is scalable, durable, flexible, resistant to false alarms, quick to install, easy to clean and fast drying. When connected to a RLE SeaHawk single or multi-zone controller, the sensing cable assemblies detect the presence of fluid in each zone, and the controller indicates which zone is in alarm status. When connected into a SeaHawk distance read controller, the sensing cable not only determines the presence of a conductive fluid, but also pinpoints the exact location of the fluid along the cable route.
Available in standard and custom cable lengths, each end of the water leak sensor cable features mating connectors for quick and easy installation and expansion of existing leak detection systems. “Collaborating with RLE and other esteemed customers on research, test and new product development enables a more intimate appreciation of our customers’ critical-to-quality requirements and their customers as well,” expresses Kevin DePratter, Director of R&D for Northwire. “Our goal is to enhance your competitive advantage so you can win more business with your customer. For over a dozen years, our partnership with RLE has helped their customers achieve peace of mind, avoid disasters, safety issues, equipment damage, productivity downtime and loss of revenue,” elaborates DePratter.
