Security Surveillance

A typical security surveillance system comprises a camera, DVR/NVR storage products, various transmission products and other components. The system transmits video signals within a closed loop by means of fiber-optic or coaxial cable, or by microwave wireless, forming a complete and independent system, from camera to image display and to the recording unit. Because security monitoring is typically implemented in harsh environments, you need to protect against damage from adverse events, such as surges and short-circuit faults in the power supply.

Fire Alarms

Security and fire alarm systems have a need for circuit protection, due to fault conditions experienced by these applications as well as safety requirements. Possible faults include short circuits in the sensor lines or overheating of the battery. The devices below are recommended for helping to protect these systems. When choosing protection devices, it is also important to consider the different currents and what is needed to meet the requirements of UL864.

Access Control

An access system comprises an access controller, card reader, electric control lock, transmission components and other parts. The access system you design is meant to secure the safety of personnel and property and should, therefore, be highly reliable and able to withstand electromagnetic interference (EMI), lightning, and other events that can harm the system. Our products for security surveillance and access systems include PolyZen devices, gas discharge tubes (GDTs), fuses, PolySwitch PPTC devices for telecom and ESD protection devices.
