AC Touch

For the highest security standards

With the AC Touch, Big Dutchman introduces a new generation of alarm systems. Instead of a key, AC Touch is accessed by means of a fingerprint sensor. This ensures that changes to settings and acknowledged alarms can be tracked back to the responsible person with absolute certainty; a great advantage on farms with multiple employees. Furthermore, the alarm device is easy to use thanks to a large color display. All alarm inputs and functions are displayed clearly and can be easily adjusted. Another important feature of the AC Touch is the “black box”, which cannot be deleted and saves all alarms and activities.

Important Advantages

  • Temperature is monitored by means of temperature profiles which can be pre-configured or set up individually

  • Fingerprint sensor allows for secure identification of up to 20 users, each with different rights
  • Progress curves of all alarms for the past 30 days can be displayed

Alarm Notifications & Acknowledgement

Up to five telephone numbers can be called and/or notified via SMS. Managers can determine in which order these numbers are contacted and rearrange the order easily. Specific languages can be set for each number and test calls can be performed. AC Touch gives you the option to acknowledge these alerts via mobile phone or fixed line. Alarms are indicated via:

  • Alarm horn
  • Warning light
  • Voice output (loud speaker)
  • Autodialer
  • Call to mobile phone
  • Text message
