Aim: - To teach participants how to install and service Intruder Alarm Systems.
Qualification: - On completion of the Course, having been successful in TWO examinations (one written, one practical) the participant will receive a Hi-Tech Training Certificate.
Durati on: - 30 hours (10 x 3 hour training sessions). Classes will be held in comfortable surroundings.
Learning Objectives: -
• Understand basic electrical theory including OHM’s Law and associated series and parallel circuits.
• Select battery to comply with EN50131 standards requirements.
• Wire the alarm control panel to an assortment of detection and signalling devices.
• Wire remote keypads to the alarm control panel.
• Programme and setup Hardwired, Wireless and Hybrid systems.
• Know different zone types and their uses.
• Trouble shooting and testing a system.
Course Content: -
• Introduction to electrical circuits, current, resistance, insulation and conduction.
• Ohm’s law. Basic circuits analysis. Fuses and trip Switches. Wiring techniques.
• Batteries: - Testing and choosing battery to comply with standard’s requirements.
• Control panels: - Standard, Wireless and Hybrid systems. General operation. Local and remote keypads. Programming
techniques and use of engineer event log.
• Zones: - Alarm, tamper, exit/entry, access, personal attack, exit/entry delay, etc.
• Detection devices: - Magnetic reed contacts, pressure mats, personal attack buttons, inertia shock sensors, analysing devices,
infrared detectors, microwave detectors, hybrid detectors.
• Signalling devices: - Siren, bell, strobe light, exit/entry buzzer & Self-activating bell (S.A.B.)
• Introduction to Security lighting, Digital, Text and Voice Communicators and CCTV.
• European EN50131 recommended standard for Installation of security alarm equipment.
• Trouble shooting: - use of digital multimeter, how to “walk-test” and “soak-test” zones.
• Marketing and selling your product – hints and tips.
In order to simulate a practical installation in a building, each participant will wire up a number of different Alarm Control Panels to typical auxiliary equipment such as strobe lights, sirens, reed contacts, inertia sensors, infra-red detectors, Self Activating Bell units, etc. This practical work largely contributes to the course’s high credibility.
