Texecom creates impact with new shock sensor

Haslingden, Lancashire (UK)

The new Impaq S Series shock sensors from Texecom are designed to take perimeter protection to the next level by providing a step-change in shock detection performance, utilising the company's Viber Accelerometer Technology engineered to offer highly effective intruder detection.

Shock sensors are designed to detect and analyse a forcible shock and provide early warning of an attempted intrusion before a break-in occurs, ensuring the safety of people and property inside.

The new EN50131-2-8 European Standard for vibration detectors mandates stringent performance criteria across a wide range of surface materials. According to Texecom, the Impaq S Series exceeds these requirements and has been independently certified to Grade 2 by Kiwa Telefication.

The new range includes the Impaq S (shock sensor), the Impaq SC (shock and contact sensor) and the Impaq SC-W (wireless shock and contact sensor with Ricochet mesh technology).

With five digital sensitivity settings, the Impaq S Series is available in white, brown and anthracite grey, to match the most popular UPVC, wooden and aluminium frames. They can also be mounted on concrete. Impaq SC and SC-W also allow the magnet to be installed on either side of the device, increasing location flexibility. Impaq S and Impaq SC are compatible with Texecom and all popular industry standard panels, while the Impaq SC-W is compatible with Ricochet enabled Texecom Premier Elite and Premier panels.

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 highly sensitive to sub-surface shock transmissions resulting from attempted forced entry, and completely immune to airborne-based high frequency noise. The result is a shock sensing technology with, says Texecom, unparalleled catch performance, while actively discriminating against false alarm sources. Unlike piezo-based shock sensors, Viber Accelerometer Technology detects in all three dimensions, increasing installation flexibility as the device can be mounted in any orientation.
