“It combines the cost-effectiveness of a zone-reporting system with most of the performance capabilities and features of a more expensive long-range fiber optic system.”

FiberPatrol-ZR shares many features with Senstar’s FiberPatrol-PR system optimized for long perimeters, including dual sensing channels enabling a cut immune configuration.
The system has a reduced nuisance alarm rate because it can differentiate between disturbances caused by real intrusions and environmental disturbances such as wind and rain.
FiberPatrol-ZR can detect and accurately locate intrusions to the zone even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of spatially-distributed environmental noise that would mask the detection capability of other long-range fiber optic sensors.
Compared to hardware-zone systems that require zone start/end modules and/or breakout boxes to define zone boundaries, FiberPatrol-ZR uses optical time-domain reflectometry to accurately determine the location of intrusions and then creates virtual zones in software.
The result is a centralized sensor unit with only a continuous run of fiber optic cable on the fence, dramatically reducing installation cost and time.
Senstar has been manufacturing, selling and supporting the world’s largest portfolio of perimeter intrusion detection sensor technologies for 35 years.
Senstar is also a leading provider of personal duress solutions.
Senstar products can be found around the world in more than 80 countries, in tens of thousands of sites including borders, ports, military and government, oil and gas, correctional, and other critical sites.
