Goodbye wired

In the unrelenting fight against crime, the winner is invariably the one with the best security system. So says Ingo Mutinelli, national sales manager of Elvey Security Technologies, announcing the arrival of Visonic’s new wireless alarm system, the PowerMaster-30.

Similar to its forerunner, the PowerMaster-10, the new system integrates Visonic’s PowerG wireless technology and excels in range, robustness and performance. The PowerMaster-30 allows security professionals and central stations to up the ante when it comes to service, cost-cutting and performance.

Zane Greeff, technical director of Elvey Security Technologies, says the product’s high-end technology has narrowed the gap between wired and wireless systems so that strength and reliability are almost on a par. “Using two-way low-power Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, the PowerMaster-30 delivers robustness and uninterrupted message transmission. This, along with its TDMA technology, which prevents interference, jamming and collisions, delivers a powerful, reliable wireless network that is impervious to dense radio energy.”

Superior transmission range

Another value-add is its extended transmission range, which enables reliable communication with remote devices, even in difficult conditions or complicated infrastructures, says Greeff. This performance derives from its advanced radio and antenna technologies that combine with FHSS and synchronised TDMA communication, obviating the need for repeaters on even the largest sites. Supporting up to 127 devices/peripherals with 64 zones and 48 users, the PowerMaster-30 makes good value-for-money sense for medium size operations.

The system comes standard with a powerful tool set that reduce and simplify installation time. This in turn speeds up system configuration and allows for remote maintenance and diagnostics. It also offers an RF diagnostic tool and remote walk testing, all of which save time and money.”

In line with growing international environmental awareness, the PowerMaster-30 supports energy saving via an adaptive transmission power mechanism. As a result, says Greeff, all network devices are programmed to reduce transmission power to the minimum required for reliable communication with the panel. The system also continuously assesses communication quality. Not only does this green technology extend battery life, sometimes to beyond eight years, but it also ensures cleaner air as a result of reduced transmissions.

The new PowerMaster-30 supports high bandwidth, which enables the network to transmit large amounts of data in a short time. As a result, it can support up to 127 devices as well as audio and video alarm verification applications.

Peripherals

The PowerMaster-30 comes with built-in voice prompts and also supports a variety of PowerG-enabled devices and peripherals. These include NEXT PIR motion detectors, door and window contacts, the NEXT CAM (a PIR motion detector with built-in camera), keypads, keyfobs, sirens and more. Combined with a NEXT CAM device, the system can also be used as a RealAlarm visual alarm verification solution.
