University of Zilina (SLOVAKIA)
The main objective of this paper is to point to the collaboration of teachers and students and to the result of this collaboration which is their common development of the educational equipment. The development of educational equipment has been initialized as part of the educational process in section protection of persons and property. The paper also describes this very development of educational equipment suitable for testing of selected components of intruder alarm systems. The starting phase of this above-mentioned development resulting in the linking of teaching and ongoing research at the faculty. The data collection was the first stage of the development of educational equipment. The data were obtained by testing selected components of intruder alarm systems. Students realized large number of tests as a part of subject and results of these tests are their final thesis in which students processed all measured data. The second phase of the development of educational equipment began as a direct link of teaching and ongoing research. All obtained data, findings and results of student’s work created a base for formulating and submitting projects especially aimed at the development of educational equipment for the improvement of the educational process. The first project is focused on the concept, development and assembly of testing device designed to test the specifications provided by manufacturer of the magnetic contacts and passive infrared motion detectors. Testing device is a great benefit in terms of teaching subjects, because students have the opportunity to test greater number of different magnetic contacts and in a shorter period. Another significant benefit is the possibility of cyclic testing of magnetic contacts and simulation of depreciation of reed relays, which are the core of magnetic contacts. Testing device for testing motion detectors is developed to replace the assistant when testing specifications provided by manufacturer and to test breakthrough resistance. This equipment will be possible to modify for different kinds of tests that will be realized not only for obtaining data, but also for the further development of this test equipment within the framework of final thesis and research. The second project is focused on the concept, development and assembly of a new generation of magnetic contact. This new generation of magnetic contact detects changes in the magnetic field of the magnet using a Hall-effect sensor and a microprocessor unit. The use of more advanced technology allows, for example, changing parameters in real time and precise detection of sabotage as well. Development of a new generation of magnetic contact will be part of the educational process and it will be incorporated into the final thesis, thereby intensive linking of education and research at the department. Article points to the possibility of linking educational process and research, engaging students into solving research projects through the final thesis and points to the results of the cooperation of students and teachers. The result of the paper explains not only the development of the new educational equipment but also linkage between research and education which is very important for both sides – motivational for students and supportive for teachers. The content of the paper can be used for even deeper research, collaboration with other universities, institutions and companies as well.
