The 2GIG-FT6-345 is a fully supervised, one-way 345 MHz detector. It will detect wet
or dry floor conditions as well as the ambient temperature. The detector reports wet/
dry conditions and when specific temperature thresholds are exceeded.
Once the detector probe detects the presence of water, the integral transmitter will
immediately send a loop 3 wet alarm transmission to the panel. The detector will also
send a restore (dry) report when the presence of water is no longer detected. The
detector is capable of detecting clean or dirty fresh water, salt water and tap water.
The 2GIG-FT6-345 utilizes a unique design that can detect leaks dripping onto its
top or if there is water under the device. This dual sensing technology is perfect for
placement under P Traps or hoses that may leak, giving a warning just as the leak
starts. If a leak occurs at a different location, it will also be detected when the water
is sensed under the device.
If the temperature is more than 95° F (35°C) for three (3) minutes, the detector
will send a loop 2 transmission.
If the temperature is less than 95°F (35°C) for three (3) minutes, the detector
will send a loop 2 clear.
If the temperature is less than 41°F (5°C) for three (3) minutes, the detector will
send a loop 1 transmission.
In the temperature is more than 41°F (5°C) three (3) minutes, the detector will
send a loop 1 clear.
Verify that the package includes the following:
1 — 2GIG Flood/Temperature Detector
1 — 3V CR123A Lithium Battery (Installed)
1 — Double sided adhesive tape
Grip the base of the detector case. Turn the top cover counter-clockwise to align the
dots, then separate the detector case.
