14 Signaling Circuits

DVACS: Short for DIGITAL VOICE ACCESS CONTROL SYSTEMS.  A means by which a number of ALARM SYSTEMS can communicate with a CENTRAL STATION over a network type of connection. Similar to DIRECT WIRE.  It utilizes _______________  connected to the CONTROL PANEL that are continuously interrogated by special receivers in the CENTRAL STATION.  

16 Intrusion Detection

Silent Alarm: An alarm that makes _________ audible noise. The control panel notifies central station operators of an alarm without setting off the security system sirens. Silent alarms are used when apprehension of an intruder is the main goal of the security system.

17 CCTV System

28 Basic Estimating and Blueprint Reading A revision (marker) is shown on the completed set of working drawings by _______________.
29 Mathematics, Calculations and Formulas

When the 5 k potentiometer in this circuit is set to its 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% positions, the following output voltages are obtained (measured with respect to ground, of course): 


At 0% setting, Vout = 0 V
At 25% setting, Vout = 2.5 V
At 50% setting, Vout = 5 V
At 75% setting, Vout = 7.5 V
At 100% setting, Vout = 10 V

Calculate what the output voltages will be if a 1 k? load resistor is connected between the "Vout" terminal and ground: 


At 0% setting, Vout =
At 25% setting, Vout =
At 50% setting, Vout =
At 75% setting, Vout =
At 100% setting, Vout =
