A new technology called FG-SYS Digital Technology is able to instantly detect and pinpoint -- within a radius of 1 m or less -- liquid leaks linked to faulty air-conditioning systems.

In response to this problem, TTK has developed its sophisticated digital liquid leak detection system, which is based on intelligent detector cables and can reportedly identify the irregular presence of liquids accurately.

The technology consists of a system of intelligent detector cables linked to a central detection unit.

Each length of cable is fitted with an electronic chip at the connector level, which can register information about faults and communicate independently with the central unit.

When a cable detects the presence of a liquid, a warning light and alarm are immediately set off in the central unit.

The location of the leak is given by a display that shows the name of the cable, as well as the time and the date that the problem occurred.

Digital technology enables the monitoring of up to 180 independent detector cables.

If a leak is detected by one cable, the others remain in surveillance mode. The range of cables is said to detect all types of liquid, from water to acids and alkalis, as well as hydrocarbons and solvents, among others. (French Technology Press Bureau)
