OPTEX has announced the launch of its new REDSCAN mini-Pro sensor series, which incorporates an infrared camera for both indoor and outdoor high-security applications.
The latest addition to the award-winning REDSCAN LiDAR series, the new REDSCAN mini-Pro analyses the size, location and distance of moving or loitering objects to accurately and precisely detect intruders to a range of 20mx20m. Designed to work in both indoor and outdoor short-range applications, the sensors can be mounted horizontally to create invisible laser planes to protect roofs, skylights and ceilings or vertically to create virtual laser walls to protect high-value assets, perimeter gates or facades.
The REDSCAN mini-Pro features an integrated camera that allows the cause of the alarm to be verified and records and stores video footage and detailed logs for post-event analysis. The sensor provides 24/7 surveillance under any lighting conditions thanks to its IR LED, which can be adjusted for light sensitivity. Regardless of the weather, temperature, or light changes, the detection is consistent and accurate all year long and in many high-security settings.
The REDSCAN mini-Pro features eight independent detection zones to adapt to every site’s needs. Within each zone, the sensitivity, target size and output can be configured independently to optimise an individual zone’s risk and location settings for maximum capture rates with minimum nuisance alarms.
Masaya Kida, Managing Director of OPTEX EMEA, says the new REDSCAN mini-Pro provides unsurpassed detection and was developed to meet the changing needs of customers: “OPTEX was the first company to use laser technology for security, launching the first REDSCAN models in 2009. Today, REDSCAN sensors successfully secure thousands of locations from underground to national infrastructure. We have been listening to feedback from our customers and used our expertise as leaders in the field to develop the REDSCAN mini–Pro to meet their need for greater flexibility and enhanced network security.
“This is a small yet highly adaptable sensor, suitable for use in a wide variety of scenarios. The REDSCAN mini-Pro delivers highly precise detection, with an intelligent dynamic event filtering function which helps security teams prioritise alerts and identify real threats, making it the ideal solution to protect high-value assets and high-security sites.“
The sensors are also ONVIF Profile S compliant, allowing seamless integration into any security infrastructure.
The REDSCAN mini-Pro series includes two models – the RLS-2020V, with an integrated camera with built-in IR LED, and the RLS-2020A, which comes without a camera for customers who only require collecting anonymized 2D data. Both models will be available in the EMEA region from September 2023.
