OVERVIEW

LightLOC WatchTower monitoring system is a cost-effective fiber-optic instruction detection device in the LightLOC product family. It is designed for use with sizeable systems of LightLOC fiber optic Universal SmartSwitches. It handles eight independent monitored fiber circuits in 3U of rack space. Each fiber circuit can have up to 50 sensors per line if the recommended fiber is pulled directly and no splices are required.

The system combines the optimum features of both our Express processor and our new OTDR-based monitoring technology. The WatchTower operates by constantly monitoring each of the 8 fiber loops for a change in light flow. Once an issue is detected, the system isolates and automatically scans the particular fiber loop to identify the exact location of the detected intrusion. During an intrusion event, an alarm signal is triggered in less than one second, followed by a report of the specific intrusion location within 30 seconds or less.

The built-in display screen will indicate which of the 8 zones are in alarm along with the specific sensor location within the zone. The color-coded output will provide the clear information needed for the security response to deploy if required or for a log to record date and time of anyone accessing the protected area via a manhole or portal.
