LD310

The SeaHawk LD310 single zone leak detection controller monitors up to 300 feet (91 meters) of sensing cable.  It is compatible with all of RLE’s leak detection sensing cables, as well as SD-Z and SD-Z1 spot detectors.

When your system is in alarm, the LD310 will notify you via:

  • Audible alarm
  • Visible LED
  • Leak and fault relay outputs

Where should you use the LD310?

Ideal for smaller areas and facilities, the LD310 can act as a stand-alone controller or integrate into existing monitoring systems.  The LD310 is most commonly installed in facilities with pumps, chillers, boilers, water control valves, and around air conditioner condensation pans.

Technical Notes

Use the Right Power Supply
The LD310 requires an isolated 5VDC power supply.  A power supply is not included with the LD310.  Purchase RLE power supply WA-DC-5-ST with the LD310.

Supervised vs. Non-supervised Relays
Wondering about the relay on the LD310?  It’s the question we hear most often.  Here’s what you’ll need to know:

  • If the relay is supervised:
    The relay remains ON until either power is disabled or an alarm is detected – at which time the relay turns OFF.
  • If the relay is non-supervised:
    The relay remains OFF until an alarm is detected – at which time the relay turns ON.

Adjust the jumpers at JP2 to make the relay output supervised or non-supervised.  You’ll notice that, by default, the relay is configured as non-supervised.  (Wondering where J2 is located?  Here’s a labelled diagram of the internal components of the LD310.)

** If you change the jumpers, you must cycle power to the unit in order for it to recognize the change. **
