PACOM 8003 hybrid control panel targets false alarms
PACOM Systems, part of STANLEY Product & Technology, a leading provider of security and access control solutions, is helping users reduce false alarms with the PACOM 8003 intelligent security control panel.
A true hybrid panel, the PACOM 8003 is capable of delivering both advanced access control and robust, EN Grade 3 intrusion detection across applications of all sizes; from simple two-door installations to campuses and multi-site estates.
Built to ensure compliance with widely recognised EN 50131 and BS8243 PD6662-2017 approvals, the PACOM 8003 helps to reduce false alarms by meeting exacting standards concerning the method by which alarms are confirmed and therefore whether a police response is activated. To this end, the PACOM 8003 can confirm alarm activation by video, audio and sequential alarm verification.
As an intelligent, IP-enabled, hybrid device, the PACOM 8003 uses PACOM-Edge technology which offers advanced security capabilities across an organisation's Ethernet backbone, so reducing the need for traditional security cabling which means easy scalability plus fast and convenient deployment. The PACOM 8003 offers up to eight configurable five state inputs and eight outputs comprising two relays and six open collectors. Inputs can be expanded up to 64 and outputs can be expanded up to 32 via the addition of on-board expansion modules and/or remote I/O devices.
With high demand across the globe for intelligent control panels, STANLEY Product & Technology has recognized and responded to the need of installers for greater choice in systems. The PACOM 8003 addresses this need with features such as a network port and the option of on-board access as standard.
'Over the last few years there has been a seismic shift in the technology that is incorporated into modern intruder alarm systems, and manufacturers have to demonstrate fresh and innovative thinking and design,' commented Gavin O'Keeffe, Global Technical Director at STANLEY Product & Technology. 'The PACOM 8003 can significantly improve return on investment through a security solution that has been carefully engineered to protect people, property and assets - while reducing false alarms. The hybrid PACOM 8003 delivers more scalability, power and flexibility than any other integrated control panel in its class.'
