Senstar Introduces New Version of FiberPatrol-ZR


Longer detection capability provides customers with more protection options

senstarimgSenstar has announced a new version of FiberPatrol-ZR, its zone-reporting fiber optic fence-mounted intrusion detection system. The new version doubles the detection capabilities of the original system to 5 km (3.1 mi) per processor.

“This new version of FiberPatrol-ZR provides additional perimeter length options for customers looking to secure their sites with proven fiber optic sensor technology,” said Product Manager Stewart Dewar. “It combines the cost-effectiveness of a zone-reporting system with most of the performance capabilities and features of a more expensive long-range fiber optic system.”

FiberPatrol-ZR shares many features with Senstar’s FiberPatrol-PR system optimized for long perimeters, including dual sensing channels enabling a cut immune configuration. 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-ZR can detect and accurately locate intrusions to the zone 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.

Compared to hardware-zone systems that require zone start/end modules and/or breakout boxes to define zone boundaries, FiberPatrol-ZR uses optical time-domain reflectometry to accurately determine the location of intrusions and then creates virtual zones in software. The result is a centralized sensor unit with only a continuous run of fiber optic cable on the fence, dramatically reducing installation cost and time.
