With more than 3 million meters of cable now protecting security sensitive sites worldwide, the INTREPID MicroPoint Cable fence detection system has become the perimeter security solution of choice across government, military, correctional and industrial applications due to its ability to pinpoint perimeter disturbances to within 3 meters and eliminate nuisance alarms common to most fence sensors.
Using revolutionary Point Impact Discrimination technology, MicroPoint Cable reliably detects attempts to climb or cut a fence, while ignoring distributed fence disturbances caused by rain, wind or vehicle traffic. By successfully identifying the source of each disturbance, the system prevents the nuisance alarms that plague traditional fence sensors.
With MicroPoint Cable, operating power, system communications and alarm signals are all transmitted using a single, patented MicroPoint cable, eliminating the need for extensive wiring. Patented MicroPoint technology allows the assignment of detection zones anywhere along the cable, reducing hardware requirements and lowering installed cost versus traditional fence sensors.
MicroPoint Cable compensates for variations in fence fabric using a patented calibration process known as Sensitivity Leveling, achieves uniform sensitivity across the entire protected area without any fence upgrades or replacement prior to sensor installation.
