Optex Releases Redscan Pro Long-Range LiDAR Sensor
OPTEX, distributed locally by Hills, has launched its new REDSCAN PRO laser detection sensor, featuring its longest range yet.
The latest evolution in its award-winning REDSCAN LiDAR series, REDSCAN PRO can very accurately detect intruders to a range of 50mx100m, without any gaps or the detection reliability fading with range. By creating rectangular as opposed to circular (fan-shaped) detection patterns, there are no unnecessary overlaps, providing great coverage for virtual wall applications such as façade and fence protection, and for virtual planes to cover open areas, ceilings and roofs.
To meet the individual needs of every site, 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 of 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.”
REDSCAN PRO features a new design, with flexible mounting option (+5 to -95 degree tilt), simple set up and easy to use web configuration. These sensors are also ONVIF (Open Network Video Interface Forum) Profile S compliant. REDSCAN Pro series includes 2 models – the RLS-3060V with a range up to 30 x 60m and the RLS-50100V up to 50 x 100m.
According to Hills’ Jeff Corr, both models will become available soon and installers and integrators should contact their local branch for more information.
