Security cable, also known as alarm wire, typically comes in a sheath, which covers two or four wires. The number of conductors is dependent upon the type of sensor being connected to the alarm system. Simple devices such as window and door contacts are passive make or break elements and do not need an external supply of power. As a result, they only require a 22/2 conductor wire for installation.
The 22/4 wire for devices such as Keypads, motion detectors, glass break detectors are active and require 4 conductor wire. (Red Wire is + Voltage and Black Wire is – Voltage) for powering the device. Two wires for the detection circuit is Yellow and Green wires.The 22/4 solid alarm wire is most commonly used in residential and commercial alarm system installations. 22/4 solid alarm wire can also be used in a wide range of low voltage power, signal, and communications applications.
