DriveGuard Basic™ (CT-2B System)

DriveGuard Basic™ (CT-2B System)

The DriveGuard Basic™ (product code: CT-2B system) is a basic stand-alone system that will trigger sounders and/or cameras when vehicles enter the driveway. No longer will you be surprised by drive-up visitors!

The DriveGuard Basic™ (product code: CT-2B system)

Its sensor is buried beside and near the end of the driveway, hidden and vandal-proof. It only detects moving steel, eliminating false alarms caused by animals or blowing objects. Its control unit is installed in a basement or closet and its sounders fit in a light switch box.

With two adjustments and a choice of sounders, this is one of the most versatile and reliable basic vehicle detection systems in the market today. It is also a dependable system with a long field life and a five year warranty. It has a proven track record since 1975.

This system is recommended for driveways longer than 75 feet.

American made and supported.

DriveGuard Basic™ Components

Three components make up the DriveGuard Basic™ system:

1. CT-2B control unit (includes 12 volt transformer)

2. CT-6 sensor probe

3. Sounder(s)

Component description:

CT-2B unit• CT-2B control unit

The CT-2B control unit has a single timed output with simplified features. Field adjustments include relay time and sensor probe sensitivity.

It comes in a high quality, white metal enclosure and is usually installed in a closet, basement, garage, utility room, etc.

The CT-2B supports up to four sensor probes and twelve sounders.

CT-6 probe• CT-6 sensor probe

Based on magnetometer technology, the CT-6 detects movement in the earth’s magnetic field caused by moving steel. It will not detect animals, people or blowing objects. Wind and weather do not affect it. This makes it virtually false-alarm proof. It does not require power.

The CT-6 sensor probe should be buried 6-10 inches underground, toward the end, beside, and parallel to, the driveway. It covers a 12′ wide driveway from the side. Wider driveways will require more than one sensor probe. It has direct burial cable attached, making conduit unnecessary. The cable is buried 3-6 inches underground, up to and into the house. It is connected to the control unit.

The CT-6 comes with a custom length of direct burial cable attached in increments of 50′ from 100′ to 500′; comes in increments of 100′ from 500′ to 3000′. The cable is polyurethane coated, making repair-splicing in the field possible.

Sounder: CT-A1 , CT-11, AA-1• Sounder(s)

Sounder(s) connected to the control unit alert the home occupants when vehicles are detected. These are flush mounted in a single gang electric box. They are connected to the control unit with CAT-5 wire. Each home will determine how many sounders should be used for best effect.

Three sounders are available:

A. CT-A1 is an electronic membrane sounder that blends in with any decor. Volume may be adjusted and muted.

B. CT-11 is an outdoor sounder with manual volume control. Includes metal face plate and gasket for weatherproof installation in single gang electric box.

C. AA-1 is a simplified sounder with a volume control knob. May be muted.

Using Other Sensing Devices

Using Other Sensing Devices

Are you tired of having to jerry-rig sensors in order to give clients a full-featured detection system? Now you can enjoy a fully-functioning, professional detection system, using many sensing devices of your choice.

Cartell’s control units are engineered to accept other sensing devices in conjunction with— or exclusive of—the CT-6 sensor probe. You may use a combination of sensors and sensor types on one system.*

Here’s how…

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

1. A Cartell CT-2B or CF-2C control unit.
2. A sensing device with a normally open, floating, dry relay contact
3. A 500 – 1000 Ω, 1/4 watt resistor

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Install the Cartell control unit as outlined in the manual that came with your system.

2. See Figure 1.
Sensing DevicesConnect one side of the sensing device contact to terminal #10 on the CT-2B or terminal #17 on the CF-2C.

3. Connect the other side of the sensing device contact to terminal #12 on the CT-2B or terminal #19 on the CF-2C.

4. In the place of the Cartell sensor probe, place a 500 -1000 ohm 1/4 watt resistor across terminals #10 & #12 on the CT-2B or across terminals #17 & #19 on the CF-2C.

Now when your sensing devices are tripped, Cartell will trigger all the functions supported by the control unit.

* Sensors may include inductive loop, motion, microwave, passive infrared, photoelectric eye, reflective beam, and our own CT-6 sensor probe, etc.
