Protection Technologies, Inc. (PROTECH), a US-based manufacturer and Winner in the 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program, is pleased to announce the company’s G-FENCE 3000 has been nominated in the 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Awards Program.
G-FENCE 3000 –Accelerometer technology for fence-mounted perimeter intrusion detection
A fence detection cable uses accelerometers to detect fence vibrations generated by intrusion attempts made by cutting, climbing or lifting the fence.
Upon an intrusion, the system transmits alarm information via the MAXIBUS 3000 Hub for verification in the control room.

G-FENCE 3000 FEATURES INCLUDE:
EASY INSTALLATION: Standalone solution, minimal civil engineering, virtually infrastructure-free
RELIABILITY: Distributed intelligence – each sensor has its own signal processing so if one sensor fails, the rest of system continues to work; event filtering eliminates environmental alarms caused by wind, rain and allows for more reliable alarm information; redundancy of alarm information (open loop)
ACCURACY: Zoning feature (up to 4×128 zones) gives precise location capability of cuts, climbs, lifts of fence for verification
EFFICIENCY: Reduced time for installation and maintenance – sensing is in accelerometer, not the cable; detection zones easily set-up
The control unit is solar powered with batteries resulting in minimal infrastructure at the site.
Unique to the market, G-FENCE guarantees a 1 second alarm response time.
Set-up, maintenance and detection sensitivity adjustments are easily facilitated.
Each G-FENCE system/loop can secure up to 2 miles (3200m) of a perimeter with pinpoint intrusion location to within 10 feet (3m).
Up to 4 loops (8 miles) can be connected to PROTECH’s Maxibus and running (4) RS485 lines on the perimeter.
A mapping software application allows the system to locate by zone by superimposing it over a site plan or picture.
G-FENCE is compatible with leading Video Management Systems such as Milestone and Genetec. Genetec is also a 2017 ‘ASTORS’ Award Winner.
G-FENCE 3000 APPLICATIONS
G-FENCE is ideal for securing long perimeters (2 miles/3200m per system x 4) at sites where there is no access to an electrical power supply at the perimeter fence.
Compatible with all “mesh” fences, the detection cable and its equipment are easy to install and maintain and can be easily replaced if the cable is cut during an event.
This is because sensing occurs in the accelerometer, not the cable itself.
Thanks to the system’s autonomy, civil engineering is minimal.
G-Fence can be used on any sensitive site configurations such as: utilities and sub-stations, oil refineries, nuclear power plants, airports, corrections, etc.
PROTECH at a Glance
Since 1980, Protection Technologies Inc. (PROTECH) has been designing and manufacturing perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) to secure sensitive sites.
Today, through a merger with SORHEA Technology of France, PROTECH now offers a full range of security products and technologies that give advance warning of threats and breaches on the perimeter, before an event occurs.
Consider PROTECH for the most innovative, cost-effective perimeter intrusion detection systems on the market today.
PROTECH G-FENCE 3000 Competes in 2018 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Program
AST focuses on Homeland Security and Public Safety Breaking News, the Newest Initiatives and Hottest Technologies in Physical & IT Security, essential to meeting today’s growing security challenges.
