OPTEX launches new LiDAR sensor

Issue 2 2021 Products

OPTEX is rolling out its new REDSCAN PRO laser detection sensor, featuring its longest range yet. The latest evolution in its REDSCAN LiDAR series, REDSCAN PRO can very accurately detect intruders to a range of 50 m x 100 m, without any gaps or the detection reliability fading with range.

By creating rectangular as opposed to circular (fan-shaped) detection patterns, there are no unnecessary overlaps, providing great coverage for virtual wall applications such as façade and fence protection, and for virtual planes to cover open areas, ceilings and roofs.

To meet the individual needs of every site, REDSCAN PRO features intelligent multiple-zones logic. This means that for each detection zone, the sensitivity, target size and output can be configured independently, allowing the zone’s risk and location to be adapted and provide maximum capture rate with minimum nuisance alarms.

The sensor’s camera module brings visual assistance for configuration and post-alarm analysis. When an alarm is created, a file is saved with an alarm log and video image. It helps security teams reviewing the alarms to check if any action needs to be taken or if the settings need to be adjusted.

Mac Kokobo, officer and senior general manager at OPTEX, says the new REDSCAN PRO series provides the ultimate detection solution: “For a decade we’ve been gathering feedback from our customers on what applications they want to use our LiDAR for. Featuring our longest detection range yet without any deterioration in performance, in combination with the ability to operate in harsh outdoor environments and to customise precisely the detection area and target size, our new REDSCAN PRO series is the ideal solution for major infrastructure, critical facilities, high-end residential properties and other high-security sites.”

REDSCAN PRO features a sleek new design, with a flexible mounting option (+5 to -95 degree tilt), simple setup and easy-to-use web configuration. The sensors are also ONVIF Profile S compliant.

The REDSCAN Pro series includes two models: the RLS-3060V with a range of up to 30 m x 60 m, and the RLS-50100V up to 50 m x  100 m.
