Perimeter Security Solutions - Fence Detection System
Backed by Southwest Microwave's 40 years of perimeter security
experience, the MICRONET fence detection system is the perimeter
security solution of choice for correctional applications due to its
heavy-duty construction, unique ability to pinpoint perimeter
disturbances to within 3 m (10 ft) and high nuisance alarm resistance.
MICRONET is based on patented MicroPoint Cable technology which
detects any fence disturbance and locates it to within 3 m (10 ft).
Precise location allows digital signal processing (DSP) algorithms to
detect attempts to climb or cut a fence, while ignoring distributed
fence disturbances caused by rain, wind or vehicle traffic and
preventing the nuisance alarms that plague traditional fence sensors.
MICRONET transmits operating power and alarm signals to system
modules and auxiliary sensors along the perimeter using a single,
patented MicroPoint cable, eliminating the need for extensive wiring.
For simplified administration, user-friendly Windows-based MICRONET software transforms your PC into an installation test set, graphic map
and alarm monitoring display in one.
With MICRONET, detection zones are assigned in software anywhere
along the cable, reducing hardware requirements and lowering installed
cost versus traditional fence sensors. Zones may be tied into camera
presets for precise, immediate assessment of alarms. MICRONET also
uniquely compensates for variations in fence fabric using a patented
calibration process which achieves uniform detection sensitivity along
the fence without upgrades or replacement prior to sensor installation.
