Perimeter Security Solutions - Fence Detection System
MicroPoint Tape integrates the detection capabilities of Southwest
Microwave's MICRONET fence detection system with a barrier of steel
barbed tape security coil. This combination of products produces two of
the most important components of security, delay and detection.
MicroPoint Tape secures a rugged barrier that will not only delay an
escape, but also specify the location of the attempted breakout to
within 3 m (10 ft).
Based on revolutionary MicroPoint Cable technology, MicroPoint Tape
transmits alarm signals and operating power to MICRONET processors and
auxiliary sensors along the perimeter, eliminating the need for
MicroPoint Tape has the unique advantage of software-based zoning.
This allows for a less expensive upgrade when existing fence detection
zones must be integrated with the new technology being installed on
overhead security coil.
MicroPoint Tape was designed to minimize the nuisance alarms common
to other outdoor perimeter security products. Through proprietary Point
Impact Discrimination, the system is sensitive only to localized
disturbances, such as climb or cut attempts, and not the distributed
noise on the fence or steel barbed tape generated by environmental
disturbances such as wind, rain or vehicle traffic.
