The Wet Switch® is a solid state device designed to detect the presence of condensate water overflow. The Wet Switch® is placed into the secondary drain pan -- a normally dry pan. If the primary drain pan fails, condensate water will overflow into the secondary drain pan. Upon sensing moisture, the Wet Switch® will turn the system off (typically the cause of the condensing water) to help prevent damage to carpets, walls, woodwork, ceilings, and other property.

  • Integral Feet - 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.
  • Hydrophilic Pad - 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 - Allows for wiring to interrupt 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.
  • Compact Package - This technology is packed into a 3-5/8" diameter by 1-1/4" high cylinder. Furnished complete with 5-conductor 22AWG stranded cable, 6' long.
