Blowing the door off an ATM machine is not a new phenomenon. The practice of criminal gangs using explosive devices has been reported across the world for many years with spectacular video footage circulated through various news channels.
The sudden increase in this specific type of gas attack is a worrying development for retail stores, banks and independent ATM deployers.
The act of destroying the ATM for criminal reward is not the main concern for many organizations. The potential harm to staff, customers and any innocent bystanders, partnered with the huge cost of reconstruction work to make the buildings and surrounding areas safe, highlights the dangers these attacks can afflict.
THE AGN PRO
Protection and detection against ATM gas attacks.
HOW DOES THE AGN GAS DETECTION SYSTEM WORK?
The Gas Detection System includes an advanced monitoring and alarm mechanism, all totally hidden from view. The key elements of the product are:
DETECT: THE DETECTION UNIT
A multi-sensor unit is included to detect the presence of gas, these two independent sensors work in unison but independently. A microprocessor built within the device, interprets and measures the change in environment and takes the appropriate decision as when it should discharge the contents of the neutralizing gas, these are based on the pre-set parameters. The system is programmable to meet the variety of applications and needs.
RESPOND: THE VALVE UNIT
This is the control unit that opens and closes the valves in response to the threat. This is positioned on the bottle(s) and will open and close dependent on the instructions coming from the sensors.
PROTECT: THE BOTTLES OF NEUTRALIZING FLUID
The contents of each bottle is a neutralizing liquid, this immediately turns to gas the moment it is released and reacts chemically with the hydro-carbon gasses. After the numerous tests conducted on the product, the results of when a continuous gas mixture (acetylene / oxygen) is pumped into an ATM safe at a flow rate of 30 liters per minute, the response of the neutralizing gas meets and masks the potency for a sustained period.
