Sicurit: Avantgarde, the IP IR Beam Barrier
Avantgarde by Sicurit Perimeter Protection Systems is a high security fully digital modular IR beam barrier designed for long range outdoor surveillance (up to 200m coverage between transmitter and receiver unit).
It is characterized by the implementation of Sicurit’s unique new bi-directional with optical synchronization IR beams stacked in discrete rugged extruded aluminum columns. At the heart of the barrier is the intelligence built into each IR beam in turn interfaced towards an internal Analysis unit which is able to manage up to 18 IR beams stacked into up to 6m columns.
Avantgard is virtually available in any size in terms of column height and number of IR beams which are directly related to the security degree required.Thanks to the internal integrated web-server, Avantgarde can be easily configured, controlled and diagnosed remotely via LAN connection. Avantgarde is also available for wall-mounting applications to detect climbing over concrete/brick walls intrusion attempts.
Without any additional interface, Avantgarde IR Beam barriers can be easily integrated into existent or new IP backbone networks virtually in any locations. Advantages of IP network solutions include remote accessibility for system maintenance and diagnostic, easy connection, better scalability, flexibility and installation cost-effectiveness.
TARGET DIRECTION ANALYSIS
Avantgarde provides not only simple alarm information but even target direction (Left/right – Right/Left) information which makes even target tracking with perimeter CCTV cameras easier and more accurate.
IR BEAM REMOTE MANAGEMENT
Avantgarde can adapt itself to any drastic environmental changing such as big snow falls, growing grass or sand storms by simply disabling without additional wire connections from the control room those IR beams temporally covered by high layer of snow or sand preserving its high capability of detection. Other circumstances may require remote IR beams disabling such as temporary obstructions.
PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE TOOL
An other key innovation is the introduction of the Signal Efficiency Analysis (SEA) which continuously monitor the optical communication stability and efficiency of each IR beam which could decrease as for istance due to powder on lenses, dirty plexiglass, or any other factor that can cause optical communication reduction including IR beams end of life. An alert is sent once the signal decrease under a warning level.
5 DETECTION SCENARIOS + 5 ALARM FILTERS
Being each infrared beam equipped with a microprocessor, individual crossing parameters can be set and up to 5 multiple intrusion detection scenarios can be configured for better filtering nuisance alarms caused by random animal activities such as flying birds and small/medium wilde animals keeping a high capability of real intrusions detection.
Thanks to the already patented bi-directional IR beam technology, Avantgarde is completely immune to direct solar rays or e.g. car’s headlights often main cause of nuisance alarms in conventional IR Beam barriers.
OPTICAL DATA CHECK
Data communication between MasterTX and SlaveRX columns are optical and do not require any SYNC cable which makes installation procedures longer and costly. The safety of the optical data transmission is guaranteed by a continuous regeneration of specific codes protected with checksums.
