Impaq S shock sensors from Texecom “take perimeter protection to the next level”

The Impaq S Series of shock sensors developed and manufactured by Texecom “take perimeter protection to the next level”. They provide a step-change in shock detection performance, using 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 alike.

The new EN 50131-2-8 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 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 allow the magnet to be installed on either side of the device, increasing location flexibility.

Impaq S and Impaq SC are compatible with Texecom’s as well as all popular industry standard panels, while the Impaq SC-W is compatible with Ricochet-enabled Texecom Premier Elite and Premier panels.

VIBER Accelerometer Technology provides a much higher level of accuracy for vibration detection compared to piezoelectric technology, as found in non-conforming products. It’s 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” that actively discriminates 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.
