MicroPoint Cable performs as advertised. We protect an 8,000 ft. fenced wooded area with deer. MicroPoint’s precise zoning tied into CCTV presets lets us immediately ID all alarm sources, and wildlife alarms can be dismissed. -Frederick E. Pierce III, EasTec


INTREPID™ MicroPoint™ II is the new-generation version of Southwest Microwave’s field-proven perimeter fence detection system for applications where the detection of cut or climb attempts is required. A newly enhanced FSK communications system increases the range for system communication across the sensor cables.

MicroPoint™ II is the industry’s highest performing fence sensor, using proprietary Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms to precisely locate intrusion attempts to within 1.1 meters (3.6 ft) while ignoring harmless disturbances caused by wind, rain or vehicle traffic. The system’s superior signal-to-noise ratio, bandwidth and dynamic range produce superior probability of detection and a very low false / nuisance alarm rate (FAR/NAR).

With a coverage area of 400 meters (1312 ft) per processor, the MicroPoint™ II system consists of a Processor Module and two sensor cables that are tie-wrapped to a perimeter fence or topper wire. The Processor Module provides the system intelligence to perform powerful alarm signal processing, DC power distribution and data communications networking (via FSK), eliminating the need for extra wiring. The MicroPoint™ cable detects fence vibrations, permits easy connection of the perimeter system and supports DC power, data communications and intrusion detection capabilities. Detection zones are set in software to cost-effectively tailor zoning to a site’s unique requirements.

As part of the new-generation INTREPID™ family, MicroPoint™ II may also be networked with the MicroTrack™ II Buried Cable Sensor and MicroWave 330 digital microwave link using a common, open-architecture communications protocol. An IP-based model is available for sites with TCP/IP networking infrastructure (MicroPoint-POE-S).
