OPTEX RLS-2020S compact outdoor and high resolution indoor laser sensor

Product Profile

OPTEX’s latest product innovation, the REDSCAN RLS-2020S, is being launched in the Americas in December while Dubai’s INTERSEC (22nd – 24th January 2017) is the chosen platform for its launch in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). 

The S-model features an enhanced microprocessor that provides more powerful sensing capabilities. In indoor environments, it can be set up to identify fast-moving objects up to 16.2kph on straight vertical walls or 45kph using a 30 degree detection angle; and it can identify objects as small as 2.5cm in diameter. This level of detection ensures high security environments such as airports, government buildings and data centres can achieve better sensing results. 

Video Management Software integrations

Once a detection is identified, the information can be relayed to a Video Management Software (VMS) to provide a quicker, more accurate response. The sensor is PoE compliant, and can send alarms via traditional relay outputs or by using its IP based Redwall event code that is integrated with all major VMS platforms. 

The more powerful processor also enables the RLS-2020S to be deployed in outdoor environments, and it has a number of environmental resistance features to further minimise false alarms in all kinds of testing weather conditions. 

Installation and set-up

In terms of installation and set-up, installers can now set four independent zones of detection within each sensor’s range (as opposed to the one-zone detection of OPTEX’s indoor RLS-2020I sensor that was launched in early 2016). 

For both the RLS-2020I and the RLS-2020S, OPTEX’s REDSCAN MANAGER software gives users the ability to configure their sensors so that specific environments are taken into consideration; and it allows users to select precise detection areas that can be set for different times of the day, and with the option to set a specific size or speed of object to be detected. 

Alongside the global roll-out, OPTEX is also launching its global certification programme, and will invite specifiers, distributors, system integrators and installers to take specific technical and sales training to become authorised to sell and install the product.
