Gallagher launches Class 5-Compliant Intruder Alarm System
GALLAGHER today released a Class 5-compliant cabinet and power supply. Combined with the recently released Gallagher Class 5 End-of-Line Module (ELM), Gallagher now provides an AS/NZS 2201 Class 5-compliant intruder alarm system from the one manufacturer.
High value and sensitive assets are routinely protected by intruder alarm systems using 3-4 state analogue monitoring to detect sensor tampering. Gallagher has recently demonstrated that sites using this protection
can be susceptible to sophisticated attacks, rendering these assets unprotected. Gallagher’s Class 5 solution is capable of protecting high value assets and IP from such attacks.
“We have customers across a number of industries with have a strong need to protect high-value assets and IP from physical security threats” said Daniel McVeagh, senior product manager at Gallagher. “We’re thrilled to now add this high-security intruder alarms functionality into our Gallagher Command Centre product.” said McVeagh.
Gallagher’s new Class 5 Cabinet implements additional security features beyond standard security cabinet functionality. Secure bi-locking ensures tightly controlled access into the Class 5 Cabinet, with a built-in vibration sensor for early detection of attempts to penetrate the cabinet. In addition, the new Class 5 Power Supply meets stringent standards for battery recharge times, and is equipped with mains fail, low battery and battery disconnected alarm functions.
Gallagher’s Class 5 Intruder Alarm System has been verified by an independent test laboratory, ensuring a high level of confidence of compliance to the most stringent level of the AS/NZS 2201 Intruder Alarm System standard. Additional endorsement is in progress with IANZ (International Accreditation New Zealand), New Zealand’s premier accreditation body and full signatory member of ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation).
“With the vulnerabilities now evident in existing intruder alarms systems, we didn’t think twice about investing in this high security solution for our customers,” said McVeagh.♦
