Latest News - Metal Theft

With the price of copper rising and economic times being tough, the threat of copper cable theft has become a major source of disruption for many utilities. Metal theft is costing the UK around £770m a year!

CCL Sentry With thieves being prepared to put themselves at serious risk of injury or death through electrocution to cut through metal cables for a few pounds of wiring, the full extent of this behaviour is wreaking havoc on Britain's railways and economy. Network Rail have announced recently that they have spent £16.5m replacing stolen cable sections, having seen an increase of 52% of metal theft in the last year causing subsequent delays amounting to over 6,000 hours.

LS Telematics, a Nottingham-based electronic design company has a range of cleverly targeted intruder detection systems for different situations. Electricity companies, telecoms companies and railways can now protect all their cables quickly and easily with the CCL SENTRY, an all-in-one Closed Circuit Loop detection device, a simple-to-use alarm and monitoring solution with GSM signalling.

LS Telematics Director, Nick Stevens comments: "Rail companies simply cannot afford the costs and delays associated with this vandalism, but we have a simple, easily installed solution to the problem already widely available and we hope LS Telematics products can eliminate this crime from being committed altogether and contribute towards a more reliable, cost-effective rail system."
