UK-based security alarm specialist Texecom has just launched its latest Impaq S Series shock sensor which is designed to take perimeter protection to the next level with Viber Accelerometer technology which provides more effective performance in detecting intruders.
Shock sensors will ensure the safety of people and property by their ability to detect and analyze forced shocks and provide early warnings about intrusion attempts before a burglary occurs.
According to Texecom, their vibration detectors can work on a variety of surfaces and have been certified EN50131-2-8 European Standards and the Impaq S Series shows exceeding these European standards by being independently certified for Grade 2 by Kiwa Telefication.
The Impaq S Series itself consists of Impaq S (shock sensor), Impaq SC (shock and contact sensor) and Impaq SC-W (shock sensor and wireless contact with Ricochet mesh technology). Available in white, brown and anthracite gray colors to suit UPVC, wood and aluminum frames.
The entire device can be installed in concrete, where the SC and SC-W models allow magnets to be mounted on both sides of the device so that placement is more flexible. The Impaq S and Impaq SC are compatible with Texecom and all leading industry-standard panels, while Impaq SC-W is compatible with Texecom Premier and Premier Elite panels that are activated through Ricochet.
Viber Accelerometer technology is designed to offer a much higher level of accuracy for vibration detection compared to piezoelectric technology, as can be found in non-conforming products. It is very sensitive in transmitting subsurface shocks resulting from forced entry attempts and is fully immune to high-frequency airborne-based noise.
With all these capabilities, Texecom claims this sensor is a sensing technology with unmatched performance and can distinguish sources of false alarms. Unlike piezo-based shock sensors, Viber Accelerometer Technology detects in three dimensions, increasing installation flexibility because the device can be mounted in any orientation.
