Setting the standard  for shock sensor performance

Setting the standard for shock sensor performance

The new Impaq S Series shock sensors from Texecom take perimeter protection to the next level. They provide a step-change in shock detection performance, utilising VIBER Accelerometer Technology for class-leading and standards-exceeding 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. The Impaq S Series exceeds these requirements and has been independently certified to Grade 2 by Kiwa Telefication.

The new range features:
• Impaq S (shock sensor)
• Impaq SC (shock and contact sensor)
• 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
VIBER Accelerometer Technology provides a much higher level of accuracy for vibration detection compared to piezoelectric technology, as 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 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.
