What is a loop alarm system?
In its simplest form, an electronic loop alarm system comprises a loop alarm controller with built in siren, connected to a continuous loop of cable which can be passed through the items to be protected.
the stand alone Loop Alarm system is ideal for protecting goods on display in shops, training rooms, at exhibitions, etc.
Once the system is armed (normally by a key-switch on the alarm controller), if the electronic loop is cut or broken anywhere along its length, the oscillating siren in the alarm controller is triggered and sounds continuously until the controller is reset with the key.
For operational convenience, the electronic cable loop (which would normally be restricted to a maximum of 50 metres in length), will be made up of short cable lengths plugged together. Standard cable length segments will normally be 1 or 2 metres in length.
In operation, the standard loop alarm cable would be fed through appropriate anchor points such as kettle handles, or any natural aperture in the item protected.
Standard 'Phono' type connectors are used on all loop alarm; 'loop section' or 'specialist sensor cables' - all cables feature male to female connection.
The Loop Alarm Controllers;
The Loop Alarm Controller is armed and disarmed via the integral key-switch. For convenience the controllers are available as battery powered (use standard PP3 type alkaline battery), or Mains / battery operation. The mains / battery operated loop alarm controller normally operates from 13amp mains power, however the integral rechargeable battery is constantly trickle charged during operation, so in the event of a power interruption such as a power cut or someone switching off the power supply!, alarm operation is maintained by the battery.
