FENCE DETECTION SYSTEMS

INTREPID™ fence sensors reliably detect cut or climb attempts while ignoring harmless disturbances caused by wind, rain or vehicle traffic, maximizing detection probability and preventing nuisance alarms.

With more than 9 million meters (29.5 million feet) of cable now protecting security sensitive sites worldwide, Southwest Microwave’s INTREPID™ fence detection systems are today’s perimeter security solutions of choice due to their unique ability to pinpoint perimeter disturbances to within 1.1 meters (3.6 feet) and minimize environmental nuisance alarms common to other fence sensors.

To initiate detection, the system processor sends a continual pulse down the detection cable. When the system registers a disturbance to the fence, the pulse is reflected back to the processor, providing a system operator with the precise location of the event , enabling real-time assessment and response.

INTREPID MicroPoint-POE-S

INTREPID™ MicroPoint™-POE-S is an IP-based perimeter fence detection system ideal for applications with cut-or-climb intrusion risks. This solution easily integrates with existing third-party IP / POE security devices and cameras. Proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms precisely locate intrusion attempts to within 1.1 m (3.6 ft) while ignoring harmless disturbances, producing superior probability of detection (PD) and a low nuisance alarm rate (NAR). This solution couples the field-proven performance of MicroPoint II with TCP/IP network integration via a single Ethernet cable, providing installation and maintenance convenience, system design flexibility and lower infrastructure costs.

An embedded, browser-based Installation Service Tool enables local or remote configuration and management of the system, eliminating the need for software downloads. Reporting features include enhanced visual scatter graphs showcasing events and alarms for at-a-glance decision-making and trend analysis.

KEY FEATURES

  • Intrusion Location to 1.1 m (3.6 ft)
  • Advanced Digital Signal Processing for High PD / Low NAR
  • Uniform Detection Sensitivity along the Fenceline
  • Free Format Zoning via Embedded, Browser-Based Software
  • Integration with IP / POE Security Devices and Cameras
  • Economical Plug-and-Deploy Installation
  • User-Friendly Configuration via PC or Mobile Device
  • IP-based controller with relays

INTREPID MicroPoint II

MicroPoint™ II is the industry’s highest performing fence sensor, using proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms to precisely locate intrusion attempts to within 1.1 m (3.6 ft) while ignoring harmless disturbances caused by wind, rain or vehicle traffic. The system leverages a unique calibration process, Sensitivity Leveling, to account for variations in fence fabric or tension to provide uniform detection along the fenceline.

With a coverage area of 400 m (1312 ft) per processor, the MicroPoint™ II system consists of a Processor Module and two sensor cables that are tie-wrapped to a perimeter fence or topper wire. The Processor Module provides the system intelligence to perform powerful alarm signal processing, DC power distribution and data communications networking (via FSK), eliminating the need for extra wiring. Zones are controlled via system software – independent of processor location – keeping hardware costs low and offering maximum flexibility. The number and location of zones can be easily altered to meet changing site conditions.

KEY FEATURES

  • Advanced Digital Signal Processing
  • Solves Environmental Nuisance Alarm Problems
  • Site-Adaptive Sensitivity Leveling™
  • Software-Controlled Zoning
  • Uniform Detection Along Fenceline
  • Scalable System Controller Options Plus Available SDK

INTREPID MicroNet II

For use at United States correctional facilities, INTREPID™ MicroNet™ II has been the industry’s highest performing fence detection technology for more than 25 years, using proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms to precisely locate escape attempts to within 1.1 m (3.6 ft) while ignoring harmless distributed events such as wind, rain or vehicle traffic. The system provides the superior signal-to-noise ratio, bandwidth and dynamic range to deliver high probability of detection (Pd) and low nuisance alarm rate (NAR). 

With a coverage area of 400 m (1312 ft) per processor, the MicroNet™ II system consists of a MicroNet™ Processor Module housed in a NEMA 4 steel enclosure and two MicroPoint™ sensor cables that are tie-wrapped to a perimeter fence or topper wire. MicroNet II detection zones are set in software to cost-effectively tailor zoning to suit a correctional facility’s unique requirements.

INTREPID UniZone

Offering unprecedented ease of use, INTREPID™ UniZone™ is a high-performance, standalone perimeter fence detection sensor designed to reliably and cost-effectively protect smaller critical infrastructure sites vulnerable to terror attack, sabotage, asset theft or liability risk.

UniZone™ protects up to 200 linear m (656 linear ft) of fenceline, and consists of a sensor mounted to the fence or in a nearby control room, and a single MicroPoint™ sensor cable tie-wrapped to the fence or topper to detect cut / climb attempts. UniZone™ employs advanced Point Impact Discrimination™ to monitor activity along the cable in 1.1 m (3.6 ft) increments, analyze the characteristics of each disturbance and reliably detect cut or climb intrusion attempts while ignoring harmless environmental disturbances. Superior system intelligence and powerful Digital Signal Processing successfully mitigate risk of site compromise while delivering the lowest nuisance alarm rate in the industry. The sensor is outfitted with a heavy-duty industrial enclosure to maximize resistance to rain, snow, UV radiation and mechanical abuse.

KEY FEATURES

  • Intrusion Location To 1.1 m (3.6 ft)
  • Quick, Easy Set-Up & Deployment
  • Cost Effective Solution for Smaller Sites
  • Point Impact Discrimination™ Prevents Environmental Nuisance Alarms
  • Uniform Detection Sensitivity Along Fenceline
  • EMI / RFI Shielding & Surge Protection
