Senstar Announces FiberPatrol® for Buried Perimeter Detection Applications

Covert and undetectable fiber optic sensor ideal for protecting long perimeters and borders

Ottawa, Canada – June 2, 2017 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), today announced FiberPatrol for buried perimeter detection applications. Using a buried fiber optic cable and a centrally-located sensor unit, FiberPatrol provides covert detection of intruders, vehicles, and tunneling for up to 72 km (45 mi) per processor.

“The advanced technology behind FiberPatrol has been protecting critical infrastructure around the world for many years as a fence-mounted intrusion detection solution,” said Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “Engineered for buried applications, including pipeline protection, we can now provide the same reliable and accurate detecting and locating abilities, with intruders not even aware they are being monitored. These buried detection capabilities further broaden Senstar’s market-leading portfolio of perimeter intrusion detection products.”

FiberPatrol detects and locates a wide range of above and below ground threats associated with long perimeters including borders. From someone walking, running or crawling above the sensor, to heavy vehicle engine vibrations, to digging and tunneling activities, FiberPatrol pinpoints intrusion attempts to within ±10 m (±33 ft) accuracy.

FiberPatrol requires no powered or conductive items in the field, making the sensor completely immune to EMI and lightning and intrinsically safe in the presence of explosive atmospheres. It can accurately detect and locate intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of spatially-distributed environmental noise that would mask the detection capability of other long-range fiber optic sensors. As well, the system’s resilient design allows detection to continue right up to the point of a cut in the sensor cable.

FiberPatrol for buried applications is ideal as a standalone protection option or as an additional layer of protection for a fence line. For buried pipeline applications, check out FiberPatrol®-PL.

Senstar Announces Extended Range Detection for FiberPatrol®-PR

Enhanced system more than doubles previous detection range capabilities and allows for more accurate intrusion locating

Ottawa, Canada – May 9, 2017 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), today announced that FiberPatrol-PR, its fiber optic fence-mounted sensor for perimeter applications, now provides up to 50 km (31 mi) of protection per processor, more than doubling the system’s previous detection range capability of 24 km (14.9 mi). The intrusion locating accuracy of the system has also improved to within 4 m (13 ft) from the previous 8 m (26 ft).

“This is the second time in just over a year we have implemented extended range capabilities for FiberPatrol-PR,” said Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “By enhancing the system, we are able to provide customers greater protection and more accurate locating with less infrastructure. This results in more economical deployments for long perimeter sites, including borders.”

FiberPatrol-PR uses proven fiber optic technology to detect and locate intrusions. The system has a reduced nuisance alarm rate because it can differentiate between disturbances caused by real intrusions and environmental disturbances such as wind and rain. FiberPatrol-PR can detect and accurately locate intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of spatially-distributed environmental noise that would mask the detection capability of other long-range fiber optic sensors. As well, the system’s resilient design allows detection to continue right up to the point of a cut in the sensor cable. The system can also be deployed in a cut-immune configuration.

FiberPatrol-PR requires no powered or conductive items in the field, making the sensor completely immune to EMI and lightning and intrinsically safe in the presence of explosive atmospheres.

Senstar Introduces the UltraLink Rugged Controller

Remote management device for Senstar sensors with automated alarm response

Las Vegas, Nevada – April 6, 2016 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS), is pleased to announce the UltraLink Rugged Controller, a ruggedized, embedded controller for unmanned sites that enables remote management of Senstar security sensors and allows local control of security functions.

Stewart Dewar, Senstar’s product manager, said: “The UltraLink Rugged Controller provides organizations with multiple unmanned sites a simplified means for alarm reporting and remote maintenance in a single device that does not need to be installed in an environmentally-controlled location.”

The UltraLink Rugged Controller connects to a site’s Senstar sensors and I/O devices and provides a standard Ethernet/IP-based interface for communication with the Security Management System (SMS) using the facility’s own WAN/SCADA network. This provides a common network access point from which all configuration and calibration can be done, and event log data can be viewed. Maintenance visits to sites are reduced, as is the need to access individual sensors when site visits are required.

The Controller can be programmed to activate video recording and deterrence devices (lights, sirens, etc.) in response to sensor alarms or diagnostic events. Alarm response actions will occur even if network connection to the central SMS is temporarily lost.

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada – January 26, 2016 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is pleased to announce FiberPatrol-PL, an advanced security system for buried pipelines, optimized to detect third-party interference (TPI). FiberPatrol-PL is the latest addition to Senstar’s renowned FiberPatrol intrusion detection systems, which have been protecting critical infrastructure around the world since 2009.

FiberPatrol-PL uses fiber optic cable buried along the pipeline to detect and locate ground vibrations and acoustic signatures associated with TPI activity. A single FiberPatrol-PL processor can detect and locate TPI over a distance of up to 72 km (45 mi) and within 10 m (33 ft) accuracy.

“FiberPatrol-PL provides the longest protection per single processor currently on the market, addressing one of the biggest issues to effectively securing pipelines – covering long distances between above-ground infrastructure locations where electronic equipment can be installed,” said Senstar’s Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “No electronics, power, communications infrastructure or grounding points are required for spans of up to 72 km (fiber distance), making FiberPatrol-PL a cost-effective solution for long pipelines.”

FiberPatrol-PL detects TPI activity that threatens pipeline integrity: machine or manual digging, heavy machinery operating nearby, and even people walking in the vicinity of the pipeline. The system’s advanced detection algorithms optimize the detection of TPI activity while rejecting nuisance alarms. It can also reject vibrations caused by traffic on roads and railways running parallel or perpendicular to the pipeline.
