HARDCASE is a 24 hour, fully supervised security system for protection of computers, fax machines, and other valuable equipment.
The system utilises 6 main components:
Equipment to be protected is connected to HARDCASE via small anti-tamper
contacts that are secured to the outer casings of the equipment. Effective
protection from "RAM Removal" on computers is acheived by securing the
small anti-tamper contacts to the seams on the outer casings.
The contacts are scanned constantly by the control panel for any change of status. Attempts at removal of the contact, or the connected equipment from the immediate area, culminates in HARDCASE generating audible alert tones.
Identification of the equipment and location are displayed on the system keypad(s).
30 Addresssable contacts come as standard within the system.
Multiway sockets are positioned strategically within the protected areas to provide direct connection of the anti-tamper contacts to the perimeter cable. These multiway sockets also enable the contacts to be unplugged and moved with protected equipment to another area. As the contact is plugged into another multiway socket, HARDCASE immediately registers (a) the contact is "on-line" and (b), the equipment description.
Operation of the HARDCASE system is via English Text Keypads. (Up to 4 keypads can be fitted to the system.)
Events such as Setting the system, removal of or tampering with contacts, are recorded in a 200 roling event memory within the system. These can be displayed at the system keypads.
16 manager, security, and user codes are available to provide positive identification of personnel that are using the system.
