Product details

Pressure Mat

• Detect covertly when someone over the weight of 25kg walks over this pressure mat
• Four wire connection already attached for easy installation
• IP 64 dustproof rated which ensures that the mat is not damaged and doesn’t lose effectiveness due to dust

What can I use this pressure mat for?
This pressure mat is great for use with a security system or used as a sensor for other purposes. The pressure mat is three millimetres thick and detects when someone over the weight of 25kg walks over it (activating an external alarm at the same time), providing you with a sensor that would discreetly detect when an intruder has entered your home.

The pressure mat can be placed under carpet or a rug and still work, due to the mat having a detection pressure of 25kg. In addition the pressure mat has an IP64 dustproof rating, which means that you will not have to worry about dust getting into the mat and reducing the effectiveness of it.

What would I need to connect this up to a security system?
This pressure mat will work in conjunction with hard wired security systems and the best way to connect this up to your security system would be to run a four core alarm cable from the control panel (e.g. Order Code: XR89W) to the pressure mat. Then to adjoin the four core cable from the control panel to the cables from the mat with a junction box.

What is the activation pressure?
An alarm will be generated by any force applied to the surface of the pressure mat if it is no less than 200 N. The mat will not be activated by a force than 20 N applied by the same means. If a person walks over the pressure mat sensor when it is concealed under carpet or rubberised matting will be detected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Care Home Use Bought these for our care home to trial, thought they would be too good to be true for the price, the current one's we use were approx £100. Bought 2 of these to try initially, we got our maintenance man to fit the stereo jack plugs (which were bought from Maplins separately) he fitted them and hey presto they work just as well as the £100 one's. Just ordered another 2 and more orders will follow. Cant beat these for price and they do the job. Highly recommended.

What is the activation pressure?

Asked by: itsmadken
An alarm condition shall be generated by any force of not less than 200 N applied normal to the surface of the pressure mat by means of solid test disc of diameter 50 +- 5 mm, and shall not be generated by force less than 20 N applied by the same means. In reality this means a person walking over the pressure mat sensor when it is concealed under conventional carpet or rubberized matting will be detected.

Any data sheet for this? I need to know what force will activate the switch. Is it resistance based? I'd like to place it under light flooring, not carpet.

Asked by: hazymat
Yes this can be found under the downloads tab.
