Securing taxidermy specimens
A large number of taxidermy specimens are displayed in natural history museums. A taxidermized elephant is just as imaginable as a small fly. Since the surface is often organic and natural material (fur, scale-studded skin, etc.) touching the animal exhibits is always critical. Modern security technology helps to detect attacks on these exhibits at an early stage.
The number of possible exhibits and materials is huge. Taxidermy specimens of larger mammals are usually located on pedestals. Here, pedestal laser scanners
perform very well. For smaller exhibits, the use of a capacitive alarm module
is recommended. The HDF-TOUCH
alarm sensor detects the approach of people before they touch the animal exhibit. To enhance this effect, appropriate sensor foils and wires can be incorporated under the fur or skin during taxidermy of the animal.
The following systems are used for securing taxidermy specimens:
