Laboratory 24/Alarm cabling
The original control unit has been removed, but the frame in which is sat is still present and affixed to the wall above the electrical distribution. All cable runs end up, somehow, at this location. The cable runs are all 8 core, though not all cores need be used on a given run.
The section names in this article match the legends written on the cables themselves.
Front Door + PTS
- Door switches
- NC circuit, impedance increases with one or both doors open
|Impedance||Door state (viewed when inside, facing out)|
|open circuit||Wire cut/tamper|
|14k1||Both doors open|
|9k4|| Indeterminate; either of
|4k7||Both doors closed, i.e. the normal state|
- Push to secure (the switch on the outside of the front door. Originally this would have been used to signal that the last occupant had left and the building was properly secure)
