Effective Copper Theft Deterrence
Cop™ is an efficient, dependable and reliable
security protection solution designed to combat
theft of commercial air conditioning (HVAC) units.
Copper Cop can be installed and activated in minutes
by a security professional and, unlike other HVAC
alarm products, does not require an HVAC, Plumber’s
or Electrical Contractor’s License.
Thousands of commercial HVAC units are destroyed
each year by thieves seeking to gain quick cash by
stealing copper condenser lines and selling them at
scrap yards. The cost of business disruption can be
high, including replacement of the HVAC system, and
inability to use the facility while the HVAC service
is being restored.
Additionally, repeated thefts increase a company’s
insurance premiums, making copper theft one of the
most vexing challenges businesses face today.
Linear, a leader in innovative and cost-effective
security products and theft prevention systems, has
developed Copper Cop for Security dealers and
integrators whose customers want a quick, secure,
and active deterrence solution.
The Solution Is Here
Linear’s Copper Cop consists of a unique 30-foot
cable harness with eight self-tapping screw-in clip
assemblies, connected to a weatherproof alarm
interconnect box. The system is ready to accept a
wireless alarm transmitter or hard-wired connection
to a security alarm panel. Once Copper Cop is
installed on the exterior of the HVAC unit and
activated, removal of the HVAC unit cover or
tampering with the cable triggers an alarm.
