Grade 3 ShockTec™ Plus added to RISCO digital range

Risco Shock Tech PlusGlobal integrated security solutions provider, RISCO Group, has introduced a new Grade 3 digital shock detector, ShockTec Plus to their popular ShockTec range.

Well known for providing exceptional false alarm immunity, the ShockTec range uses two separate channels of simultaneous digital sampling of the shock signal, with each channel amplified at different gain levels. This technology provides a wide dynamic range of the sampled signal, enabling extremely precise signal measurement and analysis.

If an intruder attempts to force, smash drill or even saw through a ShockTec detector protected window, door, wall or roof, the break-in is detected via a digital microprocessor which analyses the vibration signal received from a piezo electric sensor, and an alarm trigger is activated. For increased accuracy, on-board digital signal processing differentiates between naturally caused vibrations, filtering out frequencies that cannot be caused by an illegal entry attempt.

Two detectors in one, ShockTec Plus models include two reed switches, one door/window magnet and the second for detecting magnet tampers. ShockTec Plus detects the vibrations caused from intrusion attempts by force and activates an alarm while the intruder is still outside – providing unparalleled and uninterrupted perimeter protection. ShockTec™ Plus can be connected to two separate zones in a control panel and any attempt to defeat the detector by using large magnets will cause a tamper alarm.

This makes the ShockTec range the perfect shock detector choice for high-security applications.”
