Compact FCS PermaNet F Leak Noise Sensors for Tight Underground Spaces
Press release date: February 24, 2017
Sensors install in minutes and detect leaks overnight
Milford, OH (February 24, 2017) – PermaNet F leak noise sensors from FCS provide water network managers with a fixed base cellular network to monitor leakage. The compact sensors were designed to quickly install into small underground spaces, providing readings with dramatically reduced noise interference compared to those taken with above ground sensors.
PermaNet F sensors work by recording noise levels and tracking consistent noise to build a sound profile, which is the only reliable methodology to find existing leaks. Units can then detect a leak after only one night. The sensors communicate with host software using 3G cellular communication, allowing large amounts of data to be transferred with no radio mesh infrastructure to maintain. Once received, host software correlates the sound files for leak noise and helps users determine the location of any leaks. All data belongs solely to the customer, and can be accessed on any web enabled device.
PermaNet F sensors feature a long battery life, and are fully sealed and submersible with an IP68 waterproof rating.
FCS, a division of Halma Water Management, is the North American industry leader in water leak detection technology. FCS was the first organization to patent leak correlation technology, and today its products are installed with over 1000 utilities throughout the United States.
