SENSTAR ANNOUNCES ENHANCEMENTS TO FLEXZONE™ – More Power and Performance for the State-of-the-Art, Ranging Fence-Mounted Sensor
Singapore (Global Security Asia 2015) – March 3, 2015 – Senstar, the world’s largest manufacturer of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) is pleased to announce exciting enhancements to FlexZone, its state-of-the-art ranging fence-mounted sensor that enables flexible zoning through software.
Tripling zone support, extending power around the perimeter, and boasting even better performance, FlexZone now features:
- 60-Zone Support: Each FlexZone processor supports up to 600 m of sensor cable and can now be configured in software to support up to 60 distinct, individually-sized detection zones (it previously supported 20). FlexZone’s fine-grained zoning enables accurate camera pointing which reduces operator response time and allows zones for gates and entranceways to be defined without auxiliary equipment.
- Power Supply Sharing: FlexZone now supports up to five processors per power supply (it previously supported three). This allows FlexZone to be installed at large sites while requiring access to only one or two power points, making installation easier and reducing material and labor costs.
- EDAPT: Environmentally Derived Adaptive Processing Technology (EDAPT) mitigates the effects of wind and heavy rain. Using its precision ranging capability, FlexZone accounts for the background environmental noise level in the vicinity of a disturbance before declaring an alarm.
Stewart Dewar, Senstar’s Product Manager, said: “When Senstar first launched FlexZone in April 2014, we introduced a top quality, cost-effective, and easy-to-install perimeter intrusion detection product. To date, installations of FlexZone in North America and Europe have gone smoothly and our customers have been happy with the ease of implementation and its operation.
“Since its launch, and as part of Senstar’s commitment to innovation, we have continued to look for ways to make FlexZone even better. The enhancements we have made help to reinforce FlexZone as an excellent choice for protecting both large and small sites.”
Other enhancements to FlexZone include audio output of fence response and internal alarm queuing in case of network interruption.
Visit Senstar at booth 1913 at Global Security Asia (GSA) from March 3-5 to check out FlexZone and to learn about Senstar’s other exciting products: FiberPatrol, our ranging fiber system which provides pin-point detection for perimeters up to 10 miles; Tungsten, our new cyber security Ethernet switch; Rubidium, our centralized cyber monitoring system; and OmniTrax, our award-winning ranging buried cable detection sensor.
Also at GSA, don’t miss Senstar’s two exhibitor workshop sessions: VP Product Sales Gord Loney will discuss Protecting Perimeters with Ranging Sensors on March 4 at 1430 hrs in workshop room A; and Sales Manager Jonathan Johnson will discuss The Merging of Cyber Security with Physical Security on March 5 at 1600 hrs in workshop room A.
FlexZone detects and locates any attempt to cut, climb or otherwise break through the fence. It accurately locates intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions and in the presence of background environmental noise. FlexZone can detect and locate perimeter intrusions over a distance of up to 600 metres (1,968 feet) per sensor processor, and within three meters (or 10 feet) of accuracy. Both power and data can run over the sensor cables, minimizing infrastructure requirements. Advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) enables FlexZone to adapt to a wide variety of fence types. FlexZone builds upon Senstar’s 30 plus years of perimeter security experience to deliver a sensor that is simple to install, provides networking capability for remote configuration and alarm reporting, and works reliably in the harshest environments.
