Abstract (en)

The present invention provides an acoustic glass-break detector having anti-masking functionality comprising:i) a first and a second microphone for capturing acoustic energy and converting it into a first electrical signal, the second microphone is an omnidirectional microphone for capturing acoustic energy and converting it into a second electrical signal; the detector further comprising;ii) conditioning circuitry to convert the first and second electrical signals into a form suitable to be captured by an analog to digital converter; andii) a digital signal processor for capturing and analyzing the first and second conditioned electrical signals;wherein the digital signal processor is configured to:a) capture the first and second conditioned electrical signals characterized in that the apparatus is configured to perform the capture and analysis periodically and compare the signals and if:A) the signals have a differential greater than a threshold to trigger a masking alarm;B) the signals have a differential less than or equal to a threshold to continue operation.The present invention is best illustrated by figure 3.
