The Impaq S Series shock sensors from Texecom utilise VIBER accelerometer technology for standards-exceeding intruder detection.
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.
With five sensitivity settings, the Impaq S Series is available in white, brown and anthracite grey, to match the most popular frames. They can be mounted on concrete.
The Impaq S is a standalone shock sensor, while the Impaq SC combines a shock sensor and contact. The Impaq SC-W is a wireless shock sensor and contact compatible with Ricochet mesh technology.
The Impaq SC and SC-W allow the magnet to be installed on either side of the device, increasing location flexibility.
VIBER accelerometer technology provides a higher level of accuracy for vibration detection compared to piezoelectric technology. 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 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.
