ACCESSORIES: MOISTURE AND VACUUM SENSOR SYSTEM

The SURVEYOR vacuum & moisture sensor from AQUATICA offers an added level of protection to the underwater photographer. As thoroughly built, inspected and tested as are the AQUATICA housings, their sealing integrity can be challenged by sand, debris or damage to their O-ring over time. With its constant monitoring of the sealing condition of your housing, the AQUATICA SURVEYOR gives you peace of mind; you can now enter the water, knowing that your expensive camera equipment is fully protected.

The SURVEYOR circuitry integrates a water detection function that remains on constant duty when a battery is inserted. Should the slightest amount of water make contact with the sensor probes, it will trigger an alarm using both an audible signal and a rapidly flashing red LED to visually attract your attention. Adding the vacuum pump and pressure valve to your housing, will make it possible, by creating a vacuum inside the housing, to fully test its sealing integrity. Once the easy to follow procedure is completed, a green coloured LED, blinking every 5 seconds, will inform you that your SURVEYOR system is monitoring your camera housing and that this one is totally safe and ready to be immersed.

In the event that some sand, hair or foreign object would compromise the housing sealing integrity, the SURVEYOR warns you with both an audible signal and a rapidly flashing red LED signal.

AQUATICA has designed the SURVEYOR to the same physical dimensions as our earlier AQUATICA # 20023 moisture alarm. Retrofitting an earlier housing is as simple as removing the older moisture alarm and replacing it with the # 19229 SURVEYOR version.

The SURVEYOR circuit board is slightly different in appearance. A switch has now been added, its purpose being to activate the vacuum pressure sensor function. To see the difference between the earlier (# 20023) moisture alarm and the newer SURVEYOR (# 19229), please click here.

Description of Kits

19927
SURVEYOR moisture and vacuum sensor complete system: Provides vacuum monitoring and moisture detection for an AQUATICA and other underwater camera housing. The housing requires a bulkhead entry point hole of ½” diameter, for installation of the pressure valve.

When ordering, always specify the housing model it is intended for.

Included with this kit are the following items:

  • Surveyor moisture and vacuum sensor circuit
  • CR 2032, 3 volt battery
  • Mounting screws and spacers (2x of each)
  • Pressure valve with retaining nut (1/2’’ diameter)
  • Vacuum pump
  • Container of O-ring lubricant
  • Instruction sheet

19228
SURVEYOR pressure valve and vacuum pump (Ø 0.50”):

For converting a current Aquatica housing with an access hole diameter of Ø 0.50” which is already equipped with a (# 19229) SURVEYOR moisture and vacuum sensor circuit board. The addition of this pressure valve and vacuum pump will add vacuum monitoring capability to the Aquatica housing.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
For installation of this pressure valve, the housing will requires a bulkhead entry point hole with a diameter of Ø 0.50”. Prior to ordering, the dimension of the access hole of your Aquatica housing model should be confirmed.

Included with this kit are the following items:

  • Pressure valve with retaining nut (Ø 0.50”)
  • Vacuum pump
  • Container of O-ring lubricant
  • Instruction sheet

19233
SURVEYOR pressure valve and vacuum pump (Ø 14mm):

For converting a current Aquatica housing with an access hole diameter of Ø 16mm which is already equipped with a (# 19229) SURVEYOR moisture and vacuum sensor circuit board. The addition of this pressure valve and vacuum pump will add vacuum monitoring capability to the Aquatica housing.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
For installation of this pressure valve, the housing will requires a bulkhead entry point hole with a diameter of Ø 16mm. Prior to ordering, the dimension of the access hole of your Aquatica housing model should be confirmed.

Included with this kit are the following items:

  • Pressure valve with retaining nut (Ø 16mm diameter)
  • Vacuum pump
  • Container of O-ring lubricant
  • Instruction sheet

19929
SURVEYOR moisture and vacuum sensor circuit board: Ads moisture detection to an underwater housing if used alone or with the addition of a vacuum pump and pressure valve kit # 19228, monitoring the vacuum sealing integrity of the housing becomes possible. This moisture and vacuum sensor is also be used to replace the discontinued moisture alarm (# 20023) found in earlier housings.

When ordering, always specify the housing model it is intended for.

Included with this kit are the following items:

  • Surveyor moisture and vacuum sensor circuit
  • CR 2032, 3-volt battery
  • Mounting screws and spacers (2x of each)
  • Instruction sheet

The SURVEYOR kit (# 19227), which contains, the circuitry, valve and pump is available for our current line of housings as well as for our earlier housings. Please click here for the list of models that are supported.
