OPTEX Europe has launched REDFIBER, a new fibre optic fence perimeter detection ‘kit’ that has been designed to meet the needs of smaller perimeters and smaller budgets but without sacrificing quality and performance.
The REDFIBER kits have been tailored to protect a fenced perimeter made of two zones, measuring up to 100m each (RFB-100) or 200m each (RFB-200), each zone with its own alarm output.
The kits provide the essentials needed for fence security at a very affordable price and include the fibre optic detection cable in conduit, stainless steel wire ties to attach it to the fence, and the two zone alarm processing unit (APU).
For each REDFIBER package, there is the option to have the standard APU or the POE compliant version which uses the REDWALL event code for the alarm that is integrated with the two leading VMS providers in the world – Milestone and Genetec.
REDFIBER is also designed to provide all the key elements of the fibre optic fence protection and includes the tuning software to be able to complete the installation process. Weather proof housing, additional wire ties and installation and repair kits can be purchased separately.
REDFIBER uses proven fiber-optic technology and sophisticated algorithms to detect intruders that attempt to penetrate into a site by climbing over, or cutting through the perimeter fence. The technology used can be easily tuned to rule out nuisance alarms caused by animals, vibrations or weather conditions including wind and rain.
Unlike metallic sensors, the advanced fibre-optic sensing cable is not affected by harsh environments including UV radiation, moisture, salt or even chemical environments, EMI and lightning strikes.
Takuya Okamoto, Managing Director of OPTEX Europe, says by providing REDFIBER fence protection systems we are not only providing a great technology at a very affordable price, but are also helping the security industry to deliver a quick response to end-users by having kits ready to ship and easy to install: “Perimeter security systems based on fibre optic technology are no more solely deployed for big critical infrastructure projects they address the needs of a wider number of business and commercial sites.” he adds.
