Future Fiber Technologies launches new perimeter protection system

FFT's Secure Zone uses fiber optics to detect perimeter intrusions

“The newly launched 16-ch Secure Zone system has a total power consumption of only 120W -- or roughly 7.5 W per channel,” says Dr. Jim Katsifolis, Chief Technology Officer at FFT.

In addition, FFT products contain components that comply with RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) Directives, which is the European Union (EU) Directive 2002/95/EC for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). The purpose of these directives is the prevention, recovery and safe disposal of waste and the promotion of equipment design that facilitates the repair, dismantling, reuse and recycling of equipment.

Since 1994, FFT has successfully positioned itself to be the technology of choice for intrusion detection applications, including perimeters, walls, fences, networks and buried pipelines.

Bill Evenson says his company is committed to an extensive and on-going R&D program to continue to respond to customers needs.

“We are focused on not only enhancing the performance of our existing intrusion detection products but on developing new products with the usability, versatility and capabilities to match evolving market demands,” Mr Evenson says. “The launch of Secure Zone is testament to our commitment to developing systems that continue to meet real-world customer needs.”

The company has experienced significant growth over recent years as the market has begun to understand the truly unique capabilities of FFT’s next generation fiber optic sensing technologies.

The company’s products are seen globally as the technology of choice for perimeter applications, pipeline monitoring and communications/data network security, with hundreds of systems and millions of yards of intrusion detection being deployed globally.
