OPTEX Updates REDSCAN RLS-3060 Laser Sensor Firmware

Company News, Front-of-House/Security, EMEA
OPTEX, the leading manufacturer of detection solutions, has released new versions of its product firmware and configuration software for its award-winning laser sensor, REDSCAN RLS-3060 series which add new functionality to existing models.

 

Version 8.0 of the RLS-3060 series firmware and REDSCAN Manager feature a number of upgrades for the long-range, 190 degrees 2D LiDAR series. Both models, the RLS-3060L and RLS 3060SH will offer more flexibility in managing dry contacts with the option to switch from normally open (N.O) to normally closed (N.C).

 

The new version brings features to the standard model 30m radius RLS-3060L that were only available in the high-end model previously. Four detection areas can now be independently adjusted on an analogue connection; and up to eight areas can be adjusted on an IP connection. The shape of the detection area can also be customised to the layout of the site. An Area Allocation or Masking function will enable users to precisely define a number of independent detection zones.

 

Another feature now available for the standard laser scanner model with these upgrades is the Indoor/Outdoor Loitering Detection Mode. This function detects any suspicious behaviour by monitoring if a person or object is staying longer than the preset duration of time in the selected detection area.

 

For the advanced RLS-3060-SH model, which is designed to operate in harsher environment, the upgrades enable a Detection Range Expansion mode extending the detection area to 50m radius. Used in horizontal mode this setting allows the creation of a pre-warning zone from 30m (100ft) to 50m (165ft) radius in which larger objects such as vehicles can be detected. When the LiDAR is set up in a vertical detection mode and mounted at 3.6m(12ft), the laser scanner can detect a standing or squatting person over 100m making a compelling sensor for perimeter protection.

 

Ryosuke Miwa, Senior General Manager of Global Security Division from OPTEX Japan, says the new firmware and configuration software version increases the feature set for our long-range Laser scanner and brings more value to our customers: “With its new features and its integration with a number of VMS and PSIM platforms, our REDSCAN RLS-3060 series is ideal to protect perimeter, roof tops, ceilings for commercial sites and critical infrastructure. We are delighted that the new version has now been rolled out.”
