The GE Interlogix TX-E611 is a wireless flood and freeze detector that is compatible for use with GE Interlogix control panels and wireless receivers. The TX-E611 sensor is a small, non-obtrusive device that alerts users when water is detected or if the surrounding area's temperature drops below a set point. Due to its small size, the sensor can be placed under sinks, toilets or near hot water tanks making it ideal for high risk areas and reducing the potential of environmental risks.
Within two seconds of detecting water, the TX-E Series Flood/Freeze Sensor transmits an alarm notifying the user of a water leak or possible flood. The freeze detection feature also reduces the possibility of pipes freezing by transmitting an alarm notification if the temperature in the surrounding area drops below 42 degrees Fahrenheit.
Field proven wireless technology
Gold plated water sensing contacts
Two sensors in one - independent serial numbers for simultaneous use as a flood and a freeze sensor
Mounting bracket included
Replaceable battery with up to 10 years of battery life (based on usage)
Place the sensor anywhere that you wish to detect water and/or freezing temperatures, such as under a sink, near a hot water heater, in a basement or behind a washing machine. Determine this location is suitable for the sensor by following the procedure in the section "Testing the Sensor" ensuring desired signal strength is achieved. If you would like to make sure the sensor does not move from its' intended location, use the provided sensor bracket and secure it either to the floor or wall.
Where possible, install sensors within 100 ft. (30 m) of the panel. While a transmitter may have an open-air range of 500 ft. (150 m) or more, the environment at the installation site may have a significant effect on operational range. Changing a sensor location may improve wirelesscommunication.
The sensor test verifies proper communication between the sensor and the panel/receiver. To test the sensor, refer to the specific panel/receiver documentation and do the following:
Put the panel/receiver into sensor test mode.
By using a magnet you can send a Flood OR Freeze transmission. Place the magnet on the line located on the side of the case and remove it within 1 second to send a flood transmission. If you hold the magnet for 2 seconds, it will send a freeze transmission. Placing wet fingers on any two probes will also trigger a flood transmission.
Listen for siren beeps to determine the appropriate response.
