Grade 2 wireless shock sensor

Pyronix has released its compact Grade 2 wireless shock sensor, the NanoShock (Product code: NANO/SHOCK-WE). The product fits out of sight within uPVC window or door frames, or can be surface mounted with its low profile.

Pyronix Marketing Director, Laurence Kenny, said: “We’re really pleased to introduce the NanoShock, as it brings with it a wealth of benefits; not only its optimised installation and calibration features, but also how it’s been developed to provide resolute performance in changeable environments alongside its high-end and attractive finish.”

It’s an accelerometer device that detects impacts caused by potential intruders when they try to break into a residential or small-commercial property. You can install it, the manufacturer says, without having to worry about the positioning of any detection chamber or requiring further adjustments, as the product is positioned where required and as soon as the sensitivity is set, it auto-orientates.

Once placed, calibration is by the pinhole button on the front with LED indication. Using the included pin needle calibration tool, all the installer has to do is hold the button and cycle through five increments to the required sensitivity using the LEDs to guide them; one is the least sensitive and five the most. Hence the developers say there’s no need to open the device to configure the PCB, which is encased in the front of the sensor with the batteries. This setup means you can replace its batteries without having to unscrew anything.

As the device may be fitted in places that can be humid and generate moisture, the product’s PCB has been conformally coated to avoid deterioration of the electronic components.

“With the NanoShock we’ve delivered a wireless shock sensor that any professional installer would want on their systems; it’s small, easy to install, configure and maintain and it’s been conformally coated to ensure longevity and reliability in the field,” Laurence added.

As for a walk test, the NanoShock can be learnt onto any v3.5 or above wireless hub that supports dual frequency, so can be wirelessly connected to the manufacturer’s qualifying Enforcer panels. Or a Pyronix wireless zone expansion module (ZEM) can be used for hybrid expansion to compatible EURO systems. The device comes in white; brown and anthracite casings are available. Visit
