OPTEX Europe Limited and Fiber SenSys Inc are joining forces in the Middle East to operate under a single entity to further strengthen their combined presence in the region and offer an even broader range of product solutions, with local representation in Saudi Arabia and in UAE. Both part of the OPTEX Group, a sensor manufacturer for 40 years, OPTEX Europe Limited and Fiber Sensys Inc have extensive expertise in deploying perimeter protection and intrusion detection systems in the Middle East. Intrusion detection system By joining forces both companies will be able to provide their customers in the region with a stronger local presence and an enhanced product portfolio. From 1st April, the Fiber SenSys Dubai branch will be fully operational to manage customers’ needs in the region; product and staff support will remain the same. Optex and Fiber Sensys’ product offering complements each other to provide a multi-layered intrusion detection system “Optex and Fiber Sensys’ product offering complements each other to provide a multi-layered intrusion detection system,” says Masaya Kida, Managing Director for Optex Europe. “In Europe and Africa, our sales and technical teams operate as one and it was a logical step to create the same synergy in the Middle East.” Reliable level of security “Most security projects in the region require a combination of detection technologies to achieve the most secure and reliable level of security,” adds Gaurav Mahajan, Divisional Manager for OPTEX in the Middle East. “It is great news that we can now provide our customers with fibre optic fence intrusion detection, surveillance RADAR, long-range LiDARs, PIRs and beam towers.” The combined team will be exhibiting at Intersec Saudi Arabia at the Jeddah Center between 14th and 16th April on stand A25.
OPTEX, renowned global sensor manufacturer, will demonstrate the recently enhanced long-range RLS-3060 LiDAR series live on its stand, as well as showcase its new 180-degree outdoor sensor ideal for boundary protection. OPTEX LiDAR and REDSCAN series sensors “OPTEX’s LiDARs have been successfully deployed in the Middle East region for years, for a number of applications ranging from perimeter security to roof and asset protection. At this year’s Intersec we are looking forward to showing the new functionalities of our long-range REDSCAN series which will make it more flexible and compelling for perimeter security,” says Gaurav Mahajan, Divisional Manager for OPTEX in Middle East. The advanced RLS-3060-SH model has been designed for harsher environments and extends the detection area to 50m radius in horizontal mode The long-range RLS-3060L has a detection range of up to 30 metres, and now features four detection areas that can be independently adjusted via an analogue connection, and up to eight areas that can be adjusted via an IP connection. The inclusion of area allocation and masking functions enable these detection zones to be precisely defined. The advanced RLS-3060-SH model has been designed for harsher environments and extends the detection area to 50m radius in horizontal mode. When in vertical detection mode, it can detect a standing or squatting person over 100m away. WXI 180-degree outdoor PIR sensors The event is also the opportunity for OPTEX to showcase its new 180-degree outdoor sensor, ideal to protect the boundary of residential and commercial premises. The new WXI 12m 180-degree outdoor PIR has left and right alarm outputs that trigger alarm signals from both sides individually, making it ideal for PTZ activation, direction, recognition and changing detection pattern by day and night. The WX Infinity series features advanced Super Multidimensional Analysis (SMDA) logic to differentiate between human beings and animals, advanced temperature compensation, an area masking shutter, and a single or dual pulse count. The new series is available as both hard wired and battery-operated models. With the launch of our new 180-degree PIR, we are complementing our boundary protection range" “With the launch of our new 180-degree PIR, we are complementing our boundary protection range,” says Masaya Kida, Managing Director of OPTEX EMEA. “We are now able to offer single sided and double-sided curtain PIRs, 90-degree volumetric and 180-degree volumetric sensors, covering all areas around the building.” Fibre optic perimeter fence detection system Also, on the stand, OPTEX’s sister company Fiber Sensys will be showcasing its compact radar range which offers object tracking and object categorising that differentiates between vehicles, people and drones. It complements its fibre optic perimeter fence detection system by offering protection for wide open areas. Masaya says the company is looking forward to exhibiting again at Intersec and having the opportunity to present its range of perimeter protection sensors: “A delegation from OPTEX EMEA will be attending the show including technical engineers, marketing specialists, Middle East and Africa sales managers, and our Strategic Alliance Manager. This gives visitors to Intersec a great opportunity to connect with the OPTEX team and discuss their projects.”
