The Honeywell FlexGuard® FG730 incorporates the most reliable, field-proven technology available setting the industry standard in hardwired glassbreak detectors.
The FG730 is a dual technology glassbreak detector that uses flex detection and audio discrimination to detect breaking glass. The flex and audio technologies are sensitive to different frequencies. The flex technology is sensitive to ultra low frequencies, the type generated by a blow to a glass window. The audio technology detects the frequency of breaking glass.
The audio technology remains off until the flex technology detects a blow to the glass. For an alarm condition to occur, the audio must detect the frequency of breaking glass within a defined time-window after the flex detects a blow to the glass. Because both technologies must detect and verify glass breakage, false alarms are virtually eliminated.
The FG730 can be mounted on walls, in corners, even on false or suspended ceilings. Refer to the guidelines below when selecting a mounting location. The unit must have a direct line of sight to, and a clear view of, the protected glass. Locate the FG730 within 30' (9 m) of the glass to be protected. Curtains, blinds, and other window coverings will absorb energy from breaking glass. Heavy curtains, for example, will effectively block the sound signal. In these cases, mount the unit on the window frame behind the window covering, or above the window. Make sure to test the unit thoroughly for proper detection. Do not mount the unit in front of air ducts or forced air fans, or close to bells measuring 2" (5 cm) or larger in diameter.
The FG730 should be used accordingly (Minimum to Maximum); Plate - 2.4mm (3-32") - 6.4mm (1/4") Tempered - 3mm (1-8") - 6.4mm (1/4") Laminated - 3mm (1-8") - 14.3mm (9/16") Wired - 6.4mm (1-4") - 6.4mm (1/4") Coated - 3.2mm (1-8") - 6.4mm (1/4") Sealed - 3.2mm (1-8") - 6.4mm (1/4") Insulating - Maximum overall 7/16"
The FG-730 is specifically designed to allow a fast, easy installation, while the adjustable sensitivity settings can compensate for the acoustics of any room. Optimum operation can be quickly verified using the FG701 Glassbreak Simulator.
Field Proven Design - The world's best selling glassbreak detector.
Dual Technology Flex-Audio Principle - Positively detects and confirms breaking glass by analyzing both "flex" (impact) and "audio" (shattering) frequencies. For an alarm to occur the flex signal must be followed by an audio signal within a prescribed time frame.
Signal Verification - Both flex and audio signals must register valid amplitude, duration and frequency for an alarm to occur.
Signal Filtering - Thorough filtering and processing of all signals provides greater immunity to false alarms.
Broad Range - Detects glass breakage from distances up to 30' (9 m). The FlexGuard FG-730 detector sets the industry standard in glassbreak detectors.
