The DSC AC-102 is a glass break detector that features Form C wiring (normally open or normally closed) and an integrated tamper switch. The device uses an omni-directional microphone and a microprocessor to detect the sound of braking glass. Buy the DSC AC-102 Sensor from Alarm Grid.
The DSC AC-102 Acuity Glass Break Detector with Tamper is a hardwired sensor designed to monitor windows and protective glass casings for breakages. This is accomplished using an omni-directional microphone and a a microprocessor. The device is great for use in a home or business.
The sensor works by using its omni-directional microphone to detect sound. The sound is then analyzed by the device's microprocessor, which can actively distinguish between the sound of breaking glass and other high-pitched frequencies. The AC-102 will work with plate, float, tempered, wired and laminated glass. The device will accurately detect breakages that occur from a maximum distance of up to 25 feet away. For best results, the sensor should be installed with a direct line of sight to the glass.
Please note that the AC-102 version of the Acuity Glass Break Detector is Form C (normally closed or normally open wiring), and it has a tamper switch. DSC also offers two Form A (normally closed wiring only) versions of the same sensor, one with a tamper switch (AC-101) and one without (AC-100).
