concentrators.  These units can also be used for local (area) reporting
within the distributed IDS network.  Communication wiring for these units
requires sensor wiring usually two pair (or less) of unshielded direct
current low-voltage cable or of shielded data communication pairs.  The
gauge and length of wiring specification is dependent upon system specific
needs, often a limitation of wire resistance.  Table 17 lists possible gauge
and line lengths to maintain 30 ohms or less of resistance, normal parameter
for an IDS line.  The data communications line length and gauge is likely to
be specified by the manufacturer for performance at a site specific
installation.  Care
