Versatile New SC100 Series Delivers Robust Protection for ATMs, Safes and Vaults; Offers Easy Installation and Reduced Costs

MELVILLE, N.Y. – Honeywell (NYSE: HON) today announced the release of the SC100 Series Seismic Vibration Sensors designed for the protection of high-value assets in financial, retail and other applications.  The series includes two compact, high security sensors: the SC100 and the SC105.  The SC100 detects heat and vibrations resulting from attempts to disturb solid structures including fixed ATMs, bank vaults, safes, ATMs and doors. The SC105 is equipped to safeguard freestanding objects like mini ATMs, gun cases, vending and ticket machines or to secure file cabinets in noisy environments.  Both models can be installed in new or existing security systems and offer a higher level of protection over traditional shock sensors, which often lack the ability to discriminate between ambient vibration and real attacks. 

Advanced sensing technology reduces the potential for false alarms while detecting heavy strokes from sledgehammers, repeated knocks from hammer and chisel attacks, drilling, mechanical cutting, acetylene torches, diamond drills, hydraulic jacks and more.  The compact size enables placement inside small hardware—letting security dealers safeguard items that were previously difficult to protect.

Installation is simple, with built-in end-of-line (EOL) resistors that improve connectivity to the control panel—boosting reliability and reducing service calls and associated costs.  In addition, the products contain an integrated temperature alert feature—eliminating the need for additional sensors and, in turn, reducing dealer inventories and related costs.
