The Optex EMEA team will be displaying its range of intrusion detection and perimeter protection sensors at Security Essen, supported by its German office staff.
The stand will include a range of applications for its intrusion sensors, as well as demonstrating how they can enhance the overall effectiveness and reliability of CCTV and integrated security systems.
From its residential portfolio, Optex will exhibit its recently launched Shield series of outdoor PIRs. With a new design, outdoor Shield motion sensors are quick and easy to install, and a choice of face covers designed to blend with a building’s aesthetics. The Shield range includes the VX Shield, a volumetric 12m 90° series and the BX Shield, a 12m each side curtain PIR series. While the first series will detect people approaching the premises, the other will detect people being right against the premises – looking through window or patio doors.
Optex will also be showcasing its multi-layered intrusion detection capabilities for commercial premises and critical infrastructure sites. It will illustrate, 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 100m in vertical mode.
To protect the approaches to a building, Optex will display its long-range motion sensors, the SIP series, capable of detecting objects within an area of 100mx4m or 50mx30m. 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,” said Masaya Kida, Managing Director of Optex EMEA. “The wider European team will be on the stand, including the sales team from Benelux and Eastern Europe, Nordics, and our EMEA product, technical and marketing managers.”
