OPTEX at IFSEC 2017
OPTEX, the leading global sensor manufacturer, will be exhibiting a range of different products and solutions at IFSEC centred around five key security scenarios from perimeter protection and tailgating detection to Internet of Things (IOT) based alarm systems.
Within its high security perimeter protection zone, OPTEX will showcase its CPNI approved fibre optic fence detection system, Fiber Sensys FD-322 series that detects intruders climbing above or cutting through a fence. OPTEX’s REDSCAN RLS-3060 can create another layer of security around the perimeter fence to warn if anyone or any vehicle is approaching the fence. The perimeter intrusion detection systems have been fully integrated with the GEMOS PSIM platform and can trigger video surveillance drones to fly to the point of intrusion and send a live video stream to the control centre.
In a second zone, OPTEX will be showing its time of flight technology, to allow visitors to gain a better understanding of its capabilities. The technology allows a scene to be mapped in 3D and give an accurate representation of the objects present. It is used in Accurance 3D, OPTEX’s tailgating detection system for interlocks and could also be used for other applications such as object protection.
The award-winning laser scan detector, REDSCAN RLS-2020 will be on the stand, showing its ability to protect assets and detect people jumping over turnstiles or climbing through skylights. It is already proven in identifying small objects or thrown objects being smuggled into restricted areas.
For commercial and residential security, OPTEX will be demonstrating its new wireless infrared beam, the SL-TNR that works with universal batteries (CR123) and can be partly hardwired; as well as its new range of pre-built beam towers.
The last zone will include live demonstrations of how OPTEX’s wireless outdoor sensors, including its new VX Shield series, are ideally suited to IOT applications, sending alarms and other data via the cloud to a smartphone, or to a remote monitoring station.
Jacques Vaarre, Managing Director of OPTEX, EMEA Headquarters, says key live demonstrations have been planned for IFSEC this year: “We feel that is the best way to show the range of applications that can be achieved with our sensors. In addition to exhibiting, we will also be speaking at the Borders and Infrastructure and Security Management theatres to discuss innovations to access control systems and case studies to protect critical infrastructure against intrusion.”
