PC Tab Alarm System - What You Need
Not sure what you need? Answer these questions to help you determine
what components you need to complete your system. After determining
what you need, CLICK HERE to order.
- How many 'computer clusters' do you have?
A computer cluster is a row or group of computers close enough to
each other to facilitate a neat, smooth installation. The diagram
below shows 5 clusters of computers between two rooms.
- What components do I need to secure my computers?
- For each piece of equipment to be secured, you will
need one Security Sensor (i.e. to secure a CPU and monitor, you will
need 2 Security Sensors)
- You will need a connecting wire to go between each piece
of equipment to be secured.
- You will need one RJ-45 or RJ-11 Adapter (depending on
the type of jack used) for the beginning of each cluster to be plugged
into the dedicated jack.
- You will need one End-of-Line terminator to be plugged
into the last security sensor per cluster.
Using the diagram above of 5 computer clusters between two rooms,
you would need the following equipment (for information on the central
alarm panel, see #4)
- 80 security sensors for the 40 computer workstations
(this assumes you are securing one CPU and one monitor per workstation)
- 80 connecting wires (Make sure to determine the appropriate
length of connecting wire to ensure there is adequate slack to prevent
undue tension on the PC Tab sensor)
- 5 RJ-45 (or RJ-11) Adapters for the beginning of each
- 5 End-of-Line terminators for the last sensor in each
cluster. If using an alarm panel other than our DSC panel, you need
to use the Universal Contact Module to ensure proper operation.
You should also order extra replacement tape or base plates to have
on hand in case of tampering or maintenance. The standard ratio is
replacement tape or base plate for every 10 sensors on hand.
The configuration below shows how the installation would look on a
particular computer cluster.
Do you have spare network wires to use to connect the system
to the Central Alarm Panel or can you run extras?
Use of spare, unused network wiring eliminates having to run additional
wires, saving in overall cost per computer! The RJ-45 or
RJ-11 adapter is plugged into the spare network jack located at each
computer cluster. Then simply unplug the other end of the network
wire (in the network closet) from your hub and plug it into our Central
Alarm Panel or your existing alarm system.
I want to secure 15 clusters of computers. I have
calculated the number of components to secure the actual computers,
Now you need the Central Alarm Panel if you are not hooking into
an existing alarm system or using your own alarm panel. When
using spare network wiring, the basic alarm panel protects up to
8 zones or clusters of computers. For 15 clusters you will
need one Central Alarm Panel and one 8-zone Expander Module. Each
Alarm Panel can accept three additional 8-zone Expander Modules for
a total of 32 zones or clusters on one alarm panel. For future
expansion beyond 32 clusters, an additional Central Alarm Panel will
