Fiber SenSys launches fiber-optic perimeter detection system

Hillsboro, OR (October 5, 2011) - Fiber SenSys, Inc. (FSI), an Optex Group company, proudly announces the new FD322 Fiber-Optic Perimeter Detection System.

Fiber-optic sensors are the ultimate in perimeter protection, but their price has been prohibitive for many applications – until now. The Fiber Defender Model FD322 addresses industrial, commercial and retail applications with a cost-competitive solution that has the same high performance and reliability the industry has come to expect from Fiber SenSys products.
The FD322 incorporates Fiber SenSys’ proprietary and patent-pending technology that has been successfully deployed in thousands of sensors throughout the world. This easy-to-use value-priced sensor features two zones capable of handling up to 500m of sensing cable per zone, is resistant to EMI and corrosion and comes standard with TCP/IP communications. The FD322 detects intruders who are attempting to climb over, crawl under, or cut through a perimeter fence. Sophisticated algorithms distinguish between intruders and “nuisance alarms” that might be caused by wind or small animals. Unlike metallic (coaxial) sensors, the FD322 uses advanced fiber-optic sensing that is unaffected by harsh environments, including UV radiation, moisture, salt, or even lightning strikes.

With the addition of the FD322, the Fiber Defender family can now provide intrusion detection solutions ranging from industrial, retail and commercial sites up to key military facilities. The Fiber Defender series is not limited to chain link fence applications; protective, flexible conduit allows the sensor cable to be attached to multiple barrier types while giving it the durability required for nearly all permanent outdoor installations.

“As a leader in our industry in fiber-optic security systems, we are pleased to introduce the FD322,” says Duane Thompson, Fiber SenSys CEO. “This product provides a cost-effective, yet high-performance solution for customers who didn’t think fiber-optic security was an affordable option for their facility.”

The FD322 is now shipping. For more information about FD322 and the rest of the Fiber Defender product family, contact the Fiber SenSys sales team at or call 1-888-736-7971.
