L1-01E.15 – Outdated Sensors

L1-01E.15 – Outdated Sensors Other Sensors MSA Level 1 Passive Ultrasonic or Infrasonic A motion detection device that “listens” for ultrasonic sound energy in an area, and reacts to high frequencies associated with intrusion attempts. The sensor...

L1-01E.14 – Outdated Sensors

L1-01E.14 – Outdated Sensors Other Sensors MSA Level 1 Microwave Sensors Motion detection devices that flood a designated exterior or interior area with an electronic field. A movement in the area disturbs the field and sets off an alarm. Signals generated are within...

L1-01E.13 – Outdated Sensors

L1-01E.13 – Outdated Sensors Other Sensors MSA Level 1 Active Ultrasonic A motion detecting device that emits ultrasonic sound energy into a monitored area and reacts to a change in the reflected energy pattern Ultrasonic sound is transmitted from the device in the...

L1-01E.12 – Outdated Sensors

L1-01E.12 – Outdated Sensors Other Sensors MSA Level 1 Cord Trap An outdated means of detection consisting of a cord or wire stretched across a doorway and connected to the protective circuit Breaking or pulling the cord loose breaks the circuit and trips the alarm...

L1-01E.11 – Outdated Sensors

L1-01E.11 – Outdated Sensors Other Sensors MSA Level 1 Lacing Fine wire stretched back and forth across skylights, ducts, or other openings. An intruder breaking a wire will trip the alarm. Most modem alarm systems use motion detectors instead of...
