OPTEX was a pioneer of laser-based detectors, launching its first REDSCAN unit over a decade ago. Since then, the company has refined and improved the technology, and now offers the latest security-optimised LiDAR technology detection devices with a number of features to ensure correct installation and configuration, and high levels of accuracy.

The REDSCAN Pro range offers both high catch performance and stability, along with flexibility when it comes to mounting the units. Large areas can be protected with a single sensor: models include ranges of 100 x 50 (RLS-50100V) metres and 60 x 30 metres (RLS-3060V). The field of coverage can include multiple independent detection areas, and zones can be created to allow for varying levels of risk. Detection can be configured for horizontal or vertical planes, allowing flexibility when designing a system.

The sensors can detect an object’s size and speed, which allows more accurate filtering of potential alarm sources. This improves performance and allows users to have confidence in the detection solution.
