Senstar Announces New Ranging Fence-Mounted Sensor: FlexZone(TM)
Press release date: April 2, 2014
OTTAWA, Ontario -- Senstar, the world's largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is pleased to announce FlexZone(TM), a new state-of-the-art ranging fence-mounted sensor. With three meter location accuracy, FlexZone enables flexible zoning through software.
Compared to non-ranging systems, FlexZone reports remarkably fewer nuisance alarms while maintaining a high probability of detection. It can detect and localize multiple simultaneous intrusions and provides many features that speed installation time.
Stewart Dewar, Product Manager at Senstar, commented: "When designing FlexZone we considered the needs of both end users and installers."
- end users demand better performance when securing their critical sites, but want to reduce their total installed cost. To achieve this objective FlexZone supports 600m (1,968 feet) of sensor cable per processor, creates zones through software, and carries power and data on the sensor cable - dramatically reducing the costs of supporting infrastructure for large sites. In addition for small sites FlexZone can provide a "one box" solution with up to 4 zones reported by local relays
- installers want a speedy risk-free installation process and FlexZone delivers this with numerous ease-of-use features such as pre-installed openings with cable glands, convenient USB connection for setup, and a single software setup tool for all phases of the installation
"I am confident that the market will soon recognize the benefits of FlexZone, and see the result of our 33 years of experience fully manifested in this new product," said Dewar.
Senstar is showcasing FlexZone at Booth 25117, ISC West in Las Vegas from April 2 to 4, 2014.
