Optex presents its latest innovations


Optex UK has showcased the company’s latest innovations in advanced intrusion detection technology, including its multi award-winning Redscan Lidar series. Designed for extreme reliability, the sensors can be mounted horizontally to create high-resolution virtual laser planes to protect roofs and skylights, or vertically to create virtual laser walls to protect narrow spaces and high-value assets.

Various models, providing short and long-range detection, will be showcased live, including the latest addition to the series, Redscan mini-Pro, which provides an extra layer of security intelligence by including a built-in IR camera for ultra-fast visual verification.

For large perimeters such as airports, logistic centres, solar farms and critical infrastructure sites, Optex will demonstrate its latest evolution in fibre optic sensing solutions, Echopoint distributed acoustic sensors (DAS). The sensors utilise intelligent detection algorithms to provide point detection of +/- 6m in a range of up to 100km, with the ability to be operated across multiple applications – installed on fences above ground, buried or in a hybrid layout.

Flip X effectively gives installers ‘two sensors in one’ to satisfy multiple customer demands. By simply rotating the lens through 180°, the sensor can be used to protect narrow or long areas such as a hallway or warehouse aisle up to 18m, or a wide, open area like a living room or retail store up to 12m at 85°.
