Fiber Sensys, part of the OPTEX Group, has confirmed the release of its EchoPoint Distributed Acoustic Sensors (DAS).

Advanced intrusion detection is now available for the most secure sites through the newly introduced solutions.

A solution to secure critical environments

According to the company, the new EchoPoint series utilises intelligent detection algorithms to provide point detection of +/- 6m in a range of up to 100km.

The sensors’ high accuracy and reliability make them suitable for large perimeters and sites such as airports, logistics centres, railways, critical infrastructure and data conduits and pipelines.

Precisely locating and identifying the point of intrusion is critical in these environments.

By utilising an advanced pattern-recognition classification algorithm, the sensors are able to distinguish between common causes of false and nuisance alarms, such as wildlife and environmental conditions and genuine intrusion attempts.

The system is also immune to electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI) and lightning – providing a reliable and safe solution.

Masaya Kida, Managing Director, OPTEX EMEA, commented: “By utilising the latest fibre optic sensing technology and highly intelligent classification algorithms, the new EchoPoint series is ideally suited to protect large sites where pinpoint intrusion location and detection is required to protect people, assets and infrastructure and maintain business operations.”
