How to install
Small HT sensors are used for measuring humidity and temperature of their surroundings and for monitoring conditions in the interior and exterior of the house. Thanks to their miniature dimensions, they are suitable for measuring conditions inside of wooden structures.
Unique combined MHT sensors measure air humidity and temperature in their surroundings and, at the same time, weight moisture of the wood. They are installed as low to the wall foundation threshold as possible, ideally from the side of the base sill or of the plank of a wooden frame structure into the area of the future floor.
FHT are flood sensors for a fast detection of water leaks in the interior or directly in the house structure. The sensors are equipped with a flood cable, which initiates an alarm immediately upon coming into contact with water. FHT sensors are installed indoor near various appliances, such as a washing machine or dishwasher, or at locations with a high risk of a water leak into the interior.
IAQ sensors for monitoring the interior air quality are installed at locations where we spend the most time in the house or where more people gather. It can be a living room, but also a bedroom. The installation location should be about 1.2-1.5 m from the floor in a vertical position.
BHT sensors are used for measuring the moisture of walls, bricks, concrete, porous concrete and other porous materials. You can put them almost anywhere where you want to monitor moisture in the brick or masonry walls and when you want to know if the given masonry is properly drying or if the moisture is undesirably increasing.
The first step is drawing of the layout of individual sensors in the ground plan of the building. All sensors are marked with numbers, which we write on the walls, thus making sure they cannot be mixed up.
An experienced Senzomatic specialist will help you with the initial placement of the sensors in the ground plan, based on which the sensors will be subsequently installed.
Select a suitable sensor installation spot. You need to initially prepare the given sensor installation location. Expose the installation spot until you directly see the massive timber. Cut out the foils and remove all material residues or metal cramps. You need to make sure that both measuring electrodes are installed in a single piece of the timber and that they are not separated by a cleft. Moreover, they must not be installed near any metal objects. Drill a hole and place the sensor in it. Connect the sensor to the cable, place it in the opening and screw it in. You can close MHT sensors by snapping their top part in. The top part is then secured by additional two short screws at the top. Fasten the cable protector.
Central unit connection
The last step involves connecting the central unit to the given switchboard, marked on the ground plan with zero.
Connect the central unit to the switchboard in the house and connect the appropriate cables from the sensors to it. Using tester sensors, you now need to make sure that all sensors are properly connected and that they operate correctly.
