Southwest Microwave Fence Detection Systems

Fence Detection Systems

With more than 7 million meters (23 million ft) of cable now protecting security sensitive sites worldwide, Southwest Microwave’s INTREPID™ and MICRONET™ fence detection systems are today’s perimeter security solutions of choice due to their unique ability to pinpoint perimeter disturbances to within 3 meters (10 ft) and eliminate nuisance alarms common to other fence sensors.

INTREPID™ and MICRONET™ intelligent sensors reliably detect attempts to climb or cut a fence, while ignoring distributed noise from wind, rain or vehicle traffic. By successfully distinguishing legitimate attacks from harmless environmental disturbances, nuisance alarms are prevented.

Software-controlled Free-format Zoning lets users assign alarm zones anywhere along the cable, reducing hardware requirements, lowering installed cost and assuring superior detection. Sensitivity Leveling™ calibrates the sensor to uniquely compensate for variations in fence fabric, resulting in uniform detection along the fence line.
