About FlexPS™ and Impasse II:
What makes Impasse II superior to any other fence on the market is its bracketless design, heavier posts and redesigned rail which allows even easier integration of Senstar’s FlexPS product. FlexPS™ is Senstar’s newest fully digital fence sensor.
The synergy of this combined solution provides assured detection of any attempt to cut, climb or otherwise break through the fence while serving as a deterrent, critical delay and true site breach denial. Combining these technologies and integrating them with closed circuit video and other surveillance and monitoring devices makes the Senstar/Ameristar “‘smart fence” the preferred practical solution for both private and public operations. The market for this product includes critical infrastructure sites, airports, ports, utilities, oil and gas sites, VIP residences, government sites, agencies, correctional facilities, commercial operations, military sites and more.
