A solid state control designed to help prevent flooding, damage to carpets, walls, furniture, ceilings, etc. Now has a built-in test and reset button for easier installation. Turns system off when detecting moisture due to condensate or drain leaks. One or two drops will cause Wet Switch to turn off a unit, alerting a serviceman to a moisture problem. A lit LED indicates the Wet Switch is activated and has turned the unit off. Reset simply by drying the absorbent pad with a paper towel and pressing the reset switch. Connects to 24 VAC. More than one unit may be connected to a system. 2 amp contact rating. Simple 5 wire installation. Sales displays available. ETL Listed File Number 3146992
Integral feet raise the hydrophilic pad and sensor array off the drain pan slightly to prevent nuisance tripping and pan corrosion (metal pans only) from interfering with the sensor array.
A high tech polymeric fiber quickly draws water into the sensor array using proven capillary technology.
Multiple Unit Connectivity
Multiple unit connectivity allows for multiple Wet Switches to be connected in series to adequately cover large drain pan areas.
Standard 24AC Control
Power supply to the Wet Switch® is 24VAC, the standard power available on most air handler units. This makes hookup quick and easy. There is no need to run different power to the switch.
Double Throw Relay
The double throw relay allows for wiring to interrupt the system and to sound an alarm (by others) when moisture is detected.
Stainless Steel Sensor Array
A high tech array of multiple stainless steel sensors detects even a minimal amount of water drawn into the hydrophilic pad.
Solid State Electronics
Proven electronics prevent mechanical failure in an aggressive operating environment.
Push to Reset
When the Wet Switch® activates, it locks out the call for cool circuit on the air conditioner until the switch is manually reset. This prevents continuing damage in cases where the overflow water drains out of the pan, onto the surrounding ceiling.
Push to Test
The push to test button on Wet Switch® gives the installer a quick, easy way to test the wiring on their installation. Giving you the confidence the switch will work as designed, when needed.
This technology is packed into a hockey puck sized 3-5/8" diameter by 1-1/4" high cylinder. Furnished complete with 5-conductor 22AWG stranded cable, 6' long.
