MAGNASPHERE Announces New UL 634 Level 2 Approval

A new UL 634 Level 2 High Security Standard (for connectors and switches used with security systems) has been created by Underwriters Laboratories, the U.S. product safety testing organization.

This new standard will help Secure Compartmented Information Facilities (SCIF’s) and other high security installations to identify the magnetic contacts and sensors that provide the absolute highest level of physical perimeter intrusion detection. Virtually unbeatable and unbreakable, the Magnasphere HSS meets the new UL 634 Level 2 high security standard and ensures high security areas remain secured.
