OPTEX showcases high security intrusion detection solutions at Security Essen

Next month, the OPTEX EMEA team will be showcasing its range of intrusion detection and perimeter protection sensors on Stand 5B48 in Hall 5 at Security Essen 2018.

The global sensor manufacturer’s stand will include a broad range of applications for its intelligent intrusion sensors and demonstrate how they can further enhance the overall effectiveness and reliability of CCTV and integrated security systems.

OPTEX will be showcasing its multi-layered intrusion detection capabilities for commercial premises and critical infrastructure sites. The company will demonstrate, for example, how a fenced perimeter can be protected using fibre optic sensors from a group company, FiberSensys. Alternatively, ‘virtual’ perimeter walls can be generated by using its REDSCAN laser-scan detectors. The newly-launched RLS-3060SH Version 8 enables detection up to 100 metres in vertical mode.

OPTEXSecurityEssen2018

To protect the approaches to a building, OPTEX will be demonstrating both its long-range motion sensors. The SIP Series sensors are capable of detecting objects within an area of 100×4 metres or 50×30 metres and provide three independent zones to drive cameras positions. The new version of the RLS-3060 LiDAR has more application-specific modes. There’s now an extended range for a pre-warning zone beyond a 30-metre radius up to 50 metres.

For asset protection, and particularly to protect high-value or potentially hazardous items, the high resolution REDSCAN RLS-2020 can create a virtual shield that will detect something as small as a child’s hand.

“Since the opening of our German office last September, opportunities within the region have been increasing and we look forward to exhibiting at Essen and meeting our customers to discuss potential projects,” observed Masaya Kida, managing director of OPTEX EMEA. “The wider European team will be on the stand, including the sales teams from the Benelux region and Eastern Europe as well as the Nordics. Our EMEA product, technical and marketing managers will also be there.”

Kida added: “Our sensors are part of an overall security solution. We hope to show visitors how our different sensing technologies can be used for a variety of applications. Some sensors, such as our LiDAR products – the REDSCAN series, are highly versatile and reliable, even in the most challenging of outdoor conditions.”

As a business, OPTEX continues to go from strength to strength in Europe as its sensors become integrated with an increasing number of VMS platforms, including Genetec. OPTEX will also be exhibiting on Genetec’s Stand (5G30 in Hall 5).

New distribution deal agreed between Norbain and Satel UK

Satel UK – the national distributor for high-quality security systems manufacturer Satel – is delighted to announce a new partnership with Norbain, one of the UK’s largest distributors of IP, CCTV, access control and intruder detection solutions. The agreement will see Norbain stock and distribute Satel’s range of graded PIR detectors, intruder alarm boards and sirens in the UK.

Satel’s PIR sensor range has been configured to be both tamper-resistant and reliable, while devices are able to compensate for a wide ambient temperature range and adjust their performance to the requirements of the user and the protected premises (for example, adjustments can be made to ensure pet immunity).

Additionally, certain Satel PIR sensors can be used to implement building automation functions when the house alarm system is unarmed.

“We’re exceptionally pleased with this partnership and believe that Norbain is the perfect company to represent Satel in this market,” stated Bert McGaughey, supply chain manager at Satel UK. “Our products offer incredible quality and serious reliability coupled with flexible features that make them perfect for commercial and retail premises. We’re excited to see more and more UK installers using Satel systems in their projects in the coming months and years.”

Steve Marshall, divisional director for new business initiatives at Norbain, responded: “We believe that Satel’s range is an incredibly good fit within our product line-up, and bolsters the options available for installers when it comes to graded alarm systems. We’re delighted to be working with Satel and very much look forward to a fruitful and rewarding relationship.”

Videx launches IP Intercom range for end users

Videx has launched IP intercoms that are ideal for a wide range of installations including office blocks, apartment complexes, hospitals and commercial buildings enabling the door entry system to use existing networks and save both cost and installation time.

The Videx IP system is available as a convenient kit and as an expandable system which can be customised to suit the needs of any building. 12 gauge, 316 grade stainless steel vandal-resistant entrance panels are available along with the popular 4000 Series modular style, all with a wide angle colour camera and with one call button up to a maximum of 42 and an input for an optional second camera.

Neil Thomas, national sales manager at Videx, said: “The beauty of IP systems over conventional systems is that they don’t need dedicated wiring infrastructure and can be used on new or existing networks. These networks can be shared with other technologies such as CCTV, access control, building management and many others.”

VidexIP

The kits includes a wall mount 6200 Series videophone and the entrance panel which is available in standard or vandal-resistant form with surface or flush mounting options. The videophone includes a touch screen 3.5” colour display enabling the end user to customise a range of settings as well as initiate calls to entrance points, neighbours and internally to other extensions with the facility to have up to 16 videophones in each apartment or office.

An event log can also be viewed on the videophone with a video capture feature to see missed callers. The kit includes a 1.25 A 12 V DC power supply which can be used to power the entrance panel, a lock release and the videophone if required. The videophone can also be powered via Power over Ethernet (POE) from a POE switch.

Thomas added: “IP systems are generally very flexible and can allow for connections over an unlimited distance while using existing LAN, WAN, Wi-Fi and 3G/4G infrastructures and the Videx iOS and Android Apps. Installers are now very familiar with IP technologies allowing them to use existing knowledge and experience gained while installing other security systems such as access control and CCTV. IP systems offer greater flexibility to the installer, making it very simple to expand and alter a system as the need arises.”

Bespoke panel sizes are available upon request. Entrance panels and videophones all have two relay outputs, two inputs and RS485 connectivity which can be used for a variety of functions such as door/gate release and the activation of auxiliary functions.
