Newtown, PA – [January 13, 2014] – The FiberPatrol FP1100-X system features the most advanced fiber-optic sensor technology available for fence-line perimeter monitoring. The FP1100-X can pinpoint the location of an intrusion attempt to within one or two fence panels. Multiple simultaneous events, such as coordinated intrusions, can be effectively detected and located. The system reports the coordinates of an attempted breach, which can be used for activating corresponding PTZ camera presets and for personnel dispatch. The location-sensing ability also enables the system to ignore non-localized disturbances, such as those produced by wind and rain.
Based on the FiberPatrol X technology, the FP1100-X is the first and only fence perimeter security system to offer cut immunity. When a fence sensor is cut, either in an attempt to defeat security or through accidental damage, the FP1100-X system immediately reports the incident, including its exact location. Moreover, the system retains the ability to detect and pinpoint intrusion attempts up to the cut point. A self-healing sensor ring can be implemented by installing an FP1100-X sensor in a closed loop configuration. Having a self-healing FP1100-X system gives site owner an option to delay cable repairs without compromising site security.
FiberPatrol’s passive, all-optical fiber sensor can monitor up to 10 miles of perimeter fence without using repeaters, processors, or any other powered field components. The sensing cable is mounted directly on existing fence, requires no electrical grounding, and is unaffected by lightning storms. The per-foot cost of an installed system drops significantly with perimeter length. Using the same sensor cable for fiber-optic video and data transmission further reduces the cost of site infrastructure development.
As many as 50 virtual detection zones can be defined for each mile of a perimeter fence with the FP1100-X. Each zone can be linked to camera presets and can have its own sensitivity settings. Configured in this way, a typical installed system replaces an equivalent of 100s of legacy fence sensors, while providing higher performance at a fraction of the cost.
