Optex’ new Redscan Pro laser detection sensor features its longest range yet. According to the manufacturer, Redscan Pro can accurately detect intruders to a range of 50mx100m, without any ‘gaps’ or the detection reliability ‘fading’ with range. The company states that by creating rectangular as opposed to circular (fan-shaped) detection patterns, there are no unnecessary overlaps, providing coverage for virtual wall applications such as façade and fence protection, and for virtual planes to cover open areas, ceilings and roofs.
Redscan Pro features intelligent multiple zones logic. This means that for each detection zone, the sensitivity, target size and output can be configured independently, allowing the zone’s risk and location to be adapted and provide maximum capture rate with minimum nuisance alarms.
The sensor’s camera module brings visual assistance for configuration and post-alarm analysis. When an alarm is created, a file is saved with alarm log and video image. It helps security teams reviewing the alarms and checks if any action needs to be taken or if the settings need to be adjusted.
“For a decade we’ve been gathering feedback from our customers on what applications they want to use our LiDAR for,” said Mac Kokobo, Officer & Senior General Manager at Optex. “Featuring our longest detection range yet without any deterioration on performance, in combination with the ability to operate in harsh outdoor environments and to customise precisely the detection area and target size, our new Redscan Pro series is the ideal solution for major infrastructure, critical facilities, high-end residential properties and other high security sites. With enhanced configuration flexibility and functionality, Redscan Pro allows you to do more with less, one device that can deliver and achieve what used to be done by multiple devices.”
The Redscan Pro series includes two models – the RLS-3060V with a range up to 30x60m and the RLS-50100V up to 50x100m. The sensor features a flexible mounting option (+5˚ to -95˚tilt) and are also ONVIF Profile S compliant. Both models will become available from April 2021.
