This system works like a chain: the fiber plastic is attached to the solar panels to link them together and is connected to the analyser LiteSUN Plus, which detects both the cut and the bend of the fiber. When an attempt of theft results in a deformation or interruption of the fiber, the optical analyser LiteSUN Plus detects the variation of the light signal and triggers an alarm. After that, if the fiber has remained intact, the system resets automatically, adapting to the (new) position.
This anti-theft system is composed of 3 elements:
– LiteSUN Plus analyser, which sends a light signal and analyzes the flow of light
received, generating an alarm both when the cable is cut and when the cable is
bent or stretched out.
– Plastic fiber cable LiteWIRE (with anti-UV filters for installation in the direct sunlight) which transmits the light signal
– Affixing elements which secure the fiber to the solar panels:
— drilled bolts: the rectangular nut cannot be unscrewed if the fiber is inserted in the head.
— drilled pins: quick to position, only for rooftop installations
— fast bolts: quick to install, they make any maintenance easy, because the fiber can be fastened and removed quickly. Of course, it must be used only in combination with LiteSUN Plus, sensitive both to bend and cut of fiber.
— special glue (NEW!) fixes the fiber to the panel with little effort and cost-effectively. It is used in combination with LiteSUN Plus, sensitive both to bend and cut of fiber.
If only the cut of the fiber needs be detected a simpler analyser, LiteSUN, can be used.
Every analyser manages up to 300m of fiber, either in a loop connection or in a point-to-point connection. According to the connection scheme, LiteSUN Plus can be used as a single transmitter, receiver, repeater or single loop transceiver.
In order to check that the fiber is installed correctly throughout the installation process, the LiteSUN Plus can have a user-friendly, built-in Power Meter.
