Knitronix sensors for the presence of liquids are fabrics that react to the presence of liquids by changing their electrical status. An extremely small quantity of liquid changes their status from not conductive to conductive. Water contained in a bottle cap (4ml) is enough to trigger this sensor almost immediately (1 sec). It is possible to produce this sensor so that it can cover large surfaces to monitor water leakages from roofs or tanks.
Extremely flexible and low weight.
Can monitor very large surfaces at competitive costs
Very short delay
Quantity of water needed to trigger the sensor: less than 5 ml
Transparent to light
Needs only two wires to connect, even for large surfaces
Roof leak monitoring
Leak monitoring in walls, tanks and water distribution networks
