This unit has been designed with user friendliness in mind, including ease of installation,reliability and simple operation of the controls. An integrated perimeter protection system with multiple units, fully computer controlled, is easy to assemble. The unit has the following features:
* A novel alarm monitoring system (SA Patent No. 99/5728)capable of protecting up to 20 zones. An alarm condition will occur if the fence live wire is either cut or short circuited during 3 consecutive pulses in the same zone.
* The HV monitor system ensures stable zone information with no drift due to temperature variations.
* Zone programming is very simple.
* Fence Voltage can be switched to "Low Voltage" (800V) or "High Voltage" (8500V)
* A warning will be given if the fence voltage drops below a level of 3000V due to a system fault.
* All controls are located on the remote control unit. Communication between this unit and the energiser is via a RS485 data link (4 core comms cable), via an RF link or via fibre optic cable.
* Multiple Remote Control Units can be connected to one BS120 unit, in which case any control unit can be programmed to be the "Master" control unit or a "Slave" control unit.
* A VHF- and a license free UHF transceiver with anti-collision facility can be supplied for bi-directional data communication over distances up to 3 Km and up to 20 Km.
* Windows 95/98/2000/NT/XP software is available to interface up to 125 Energisers to a PC via a RS485 data cable, RF data transceivers, or fibre optic cable.
* Up to 125 Site maps can be stored, to enable communication with different sites from one computer.
* The output voltage of each energizer will be indicated at the computer screen and will also be logged.
* The software allows for pulse synchronisation of multiple BS120 units.
* The zones can be series- or parallel wired .
* The start and end points of the fence and the fence ground are the only connections
to the energiser. An additional feature is that the fence is powered from both ends.
* An auto-reset facility is available and can be enabled or disabled. The machine will automatically try to reset an alarm after 3 minutes. If successful, the alarm was apparently a nuisance alarm and no further action is required.

will be reported.
WINDOWS SOFTWARE PACKAGE
This package has been specifically designed for the "Stinger" BS120 system, used on large sites with a number of "Stinger" units.
The software is extremely versatile and is yet user friendly to the average operator.
The program has the following general features
Can be loaded onto all modern machines and is Windows95/98/2000/NT/XP compatible.
Communicates via the computer comm. port and an RS485 to RS232 converter with up to
125 BS120 units via a two wire cable, RF data link or fibre optic cable.
Full control of all units is possible via simple configure and setting-up windows.
Up to 125 site maps can be imported, indicating on the screen the physical positions of
the "Stinger" units and the Electric fence zones at the perimeter.
The location and the type of alarm condition will be shown at the site map for quick
reaction by the security personnel.
An alarm will be raised to alert the operator.
Feedback systems are built into the software to monitor the reactions of the operating
A log file keeps record of all events and fence conditions and is available for later
retrieval. A printout can be made anytime of any part of this file.
