Senstar launches ultraWave at ISC West

Senstar's µltraWave microwave sensor features superior networking, ease-of-use & ultra reliability


Las Vegas, Nevada - April 6, 2011  - Senstar Corporation, a world leader in outdoor perimeter security technology and products, today launched its newest generation microwave - µltraWave™, an all-digital volumetric sensor that provides advanced warning to security forces of unwanted intrusions.

µltraWave combines advanced electronics with Senstar's decades of experience in outdoor perimeter security sensors to deliver superior performance in perimeter protection.  Key benefits of this new sensor include ease of use, powerful networking capabilities and long-term reliability.

"As we celebrate our 30th anniversary in 2011, Senstar is proud of the fact that we are investing to enhance our technologies and products for the demands of today," said Brian Rich, President, Senstar Corporation.

"As the market leader in outdoor perimeter intrusion detection products, we bring increased value to our customers with µltraWave™ - easier installation and set up, remote monitoring and calibration, long term support of the electronics, the reliability of digital circuitry and a clear migration patch from our current microwave products into the next generation," Rich added.

µltraWave's sophisticated detection algorithms look for specific responses that discriminate real intrusions from environmental effects.  It comes with a Windows®-based software configuration tool with intuitive screens.  Calibration is streamlined with minimal settings and sensor response data can be viewed and recorded in real-time to evaluate sensor Probability of detection (Pd) and Nuisance Alarm Rates (NAR).

Highly stable RF sources allow for 10 operating channels, allowing even the densest concentration of microwaves.

µltraWave works with Senstar's Silver Network™ that unleashes the benefits of reliable alarm communication, remote setup and diagnostics using the same Windows® screens as used at the processor, and a flexible IP / Ethernet interface to the Security Management System (SMS).  µltraWave now adds microwave sensor compatibility to the same network as Senstar's other new generation sensors: the OmniTrax® buried cable sensor, the FlexPS™ fence sensor and the XField® electrostatic sensor.  While the MPS-4100 and other previous generation microwave products will continue to be supported, µltraWave will become the choice for new sites as well as expansions, upgrades and replacement of existing systems.

Comparable priced with Senstar's analog volumetric microwave sensors, µltraWave is an ideal solution for commercial and industrial sites, the petrochemical industry, correctional facilities, military bases, critical infrastructure sites, airports and VIP installations.
