Security starts at the perimeter. To meet perimeter intrusion and surveillance system requirements, many high-security locations are deploying Optex’s Redscan laser detectors.
Redscan is an innovative laser scan detector. It can detect a moving object’s size, speed, and distance from the detector and process that information with a unique algorithm, which results in high-reliability detection of people and objects. The detector can also be mounted vertically or horizontally according to the application and site conditions.
When vertical detection area is selected, Redscan creates a 200-foot detection area that functions like an invisible wall. With four outputs for remote video applications and up to 8 fully programmable detection areas linked with these outputs, Redscan is the ideal detector for controlling PTZ cameras.
When horizontal detection area is selected, Redscan creates a detection area with a radius 100 feet and an arc of 190°. The detection area can be set manually or automatically. If the automatic setting is used, the detector will set the proper detection area even for complicated area shapes.
The goal of Redscan is to provide a solution that can deliver reliable and effective protection. To achieve this, Redscan detectors leverage five cutting-edge sensor technologies:
- High-reliability PIR sensor with double conductive shielding
- Thermo-sensor for detecting environmental ambient temperature
- Light intensity sensor for detecting ambient brightness
- Photo-beam sensor for anti-masking
- Accelerometer for anti-rotation
