TORONTO -- With outdoor perimeter detection an integral part of many security strategies, STR International, Inc. is introducing the R-300, an affordable, high quality microwave perimeter protection detector, to the North American market. Designed to continuously learn and adjust to changes in weather and terrain height, the R-300 virtually eliminates false alarms and is about one third less the cost of similar microwave perimeter products.
â€œThe false alarms that other systems generate make them not only inconvenient, but very impractical,â€ explained Eugene Gerstein, managing director of STR International. â€œFor example, many competitive outdoor perimeter systems cannot differentiate between significant snowfall and an intruder, which causes false alarms and costs end users both time and money.â€
The R-300 provides a large area of coverage, while operating under extreme conditions. Acting as an early warning system, the R-300 can protect a zone with a length of up to 1,000 feet and detect a walking or crawling human at 1 to 30 feet per second. The system can also be tested remotely, eliminating the need to travel to remote locations where it may be set up. The R-300 is also durable, built to withstand temperatures of -58 to 149 degrees Fahrenheit and up to 100 percent relative humidity with a 77 degrees Fahrenheit air temperature.
Based on high-quality Russian technology, the R-300 provides true microwave perimeter protection in a small (160mm x 115mm x 45mm), lightweight (about two pounds for a set of two), attractive shatter and weather proof plastic package.
Currently used in prisons, parking lots, factories, hospitals and other high-security areas, the R-300 is affordable enough to be used in residential applications as well.
STR International offers several other microwave perimeter protection detectors, including multi-range and mobile versions. As is the case with all of the companyâ€™s products, the R-300 is easy to learn and to install. The company, which recently became a PSA Security Network-approved vendor, also offers training and technical support to ensure that dealers and installers have everything they require. STR International also stands behind the R-300â€™s durability with a three-year warranty.
