Southwest Microwave Fence Detection Systems

Fence Detection Systems

With more than 9 million meters (29.5 million ft) 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 ft) and eliminate nuisance alarms common to other fence sensors.

INTREPID™ 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.
