Langhorne, PA, March 26, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Optellios, Inc., announced today that it will be launching a new family of FiberPatrol® intrusion detection systems featuring modular, environmentally hardened 4-zone alarm processors. The new processing units will work with the company’s proven fiber optic multi-zone sensors that require no field power and can include unlimited spare communication fibers. An innovative system design will feature unprecedented four intrusion zones per standalone processor, enabling intelligent on-board cross-sensor correlation for superior nuisance alarm rejection.
“We are addressing a need which we have found in the industry for a low-cost solution that can also provide competent nuisance alarm rejection. We are glad to offer an alternative to older technologies, one that is truly immune to weather-induced disturbances,” said Dr. Jay Patel, CEO of Optellios.
Processor units will be available as stand-alone boxes or plug-in cards. Up to five plug-in processor modules, supporting up to 20 zones, can be housed in a standard rack-mountable chassis, which is also compatible with FiberPatrol communication equipment. Each processor will come with a set of relay contacts, an RS232 port, and a built-in IP interface, with XML broadcasting for easy integration into existing alarm management systems. Multiple units can be combined together through the FiberPatrol Remote Alarm Management platform.
New systems will be available for all perimeter security and infrastructure monitoring applications, including fences, walls, buried perimeters, pipelines, and data cables. Multi-zone intrusion detection systems are designed to complement high-end FiberPatrol location sensing systems by providing protection to smaller facilities and individual assets.
Optellios will be unveiling its new generation of intrusion detection systems at the ISC West trade show in Las Vegas, NV on April 2-4th. A live demonstration will be available to showcase the new product offering.
