FlexGuard FG-1525 Glassbreak Sensor Training FlexGuard Glassbreak Theory Basics How does an acoustic glassbreak work? FlexGuard Flex Signal FLEX SIGNAL PANE OF GLASS • Very low frequency sound • Results from glass vibrating upon impact • Similar to a drum head vibration FlexGuard Audio Signal AUDIO SIGNAL PANE OF GLASS • Mid- to High-frequency sound • Results from glass shattering FlexGuard Installation Basics • Never exceed max range (25ft) • Mount on opposite wall or ceiling • Install at least 6 ft from floor (to avoid blockage by furniture,etc.) FlexGuard Installation Basics • Always mount the sensor in direct line of site to the glass… • e.g….an imaginary string tied to the detector should reach all points of the glass without bending. • Always use the Tester for every installation Installation Basics FlexGuard Selecting the Location • • • • • Clear view of glass to be protected At least 6.5 feet above floor At least 3.5 feet from forced air ducts At least 3.5 feet from sirens or bells Between the window and any heavy protective window coverings Installation Basics FlexGuard Locations to Avoid Mounting • A corner • On the same wall as the protected glass • On free-standing pillars or posts • In rooms with noisy equipment such as air compressors, bells, power equipment if the equipment will be operating while the sensor is armed Introducing the FG-1525 FlexGuard Glassbreak Detector • • • • • FlexCore Signal Processing 25ft maximum range Adjustable sensitivity No minimum range Remote Test Mode Enable with FG-701 • Protected PCB in all models FlexGuard FlexCore Signal Processing •Parallel multiple tasking •Faster than sequential processing (micro) •Extracts over 50% more data in same time •Faster, more accurate false alarm rejection FG-1515 FlexGuard Glassbreak Detector Same as FG-1525, except range is fixed at 15 feet FGW-1525 FlexGuard Wireless Glassbreak Detector • Wireless-ready version of FG-1525 • Uses 9V lithium battery • Also, available as 5852 with complete 5800 transmitter Installation Basics Design Features FlexGuard DETECTOR PARTS: 1 - Wire Entry Hole 2 - DIP Switches 3 - Terminal Blocks 4 - Breakout Flash (for cover screw) 5 - Latch 6 - Microphone 7 - Red LED 8 - Green LED 9 - Spacer Plate (Optional) Hinged cover twists off to improve access during wiring Installation Basics FlexGuard Mounting the Detector Route the wires through the center wire entry port.
