Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems

Remsdaq perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) are designed for outdoor environments at the perimeter fence limits or around sensitive, high-risk and secure areas. The range includes an advanced Sabre system monitoring and alarm board, SabreFonic sensor cable and SabreLine buried sensors. The Sabre PIDS range relies on fibre optic technology to monitor for vibration and compression caused by attempts to climb, crawl under or cut through the fence.

Should an intrusion occur or an attempt at intrusion be detected, the Sabre system will detect this event and generate an alarm for pick-up via a remote monitoring station. This can be a third party system or a Remsdaq access control monitoring software package.

PIDS Installations

Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems are usually installed in an outdoor environment at the perimeter limits or around sensitive, high-risk areas. The sensors detect, deter, and delay intruders.  A PIDS installation provides critical time for security teams to respond to any intrusion. Triggered alarms can be located to zoned areas and CCTV used to access the overall risk from the intrusion.

Remsdaq manufactures fibre optic perimeter intrusion detectors that are easy to install, sensitive to intrusion in difficult environments, immune to radio or electrical interference and safe in operation. The Sabre product range caters for fence and wall mounted applications, buried systems and flexible mesh which is suitable for the protection of sensitive storage areas.

The Sabre PIDS Series

The Remsdaq Sabre series is a range of industry leading fibre optic-based perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) for applications ranging from fence protection to watercourse security.

At the heart of each product is an advanced technology Sabre II processor connected to an application suitable fibre optic cable. The processor can be supplied in an enclosure with a power supply and battery backup.

Sabre continuously monitors for vibration, flexing and compression by analysing laser light returned to a sensor. Pattern changes are analysed with alarms triggered against pre-set conditions for cut and climb events.

Automatic environmental compensation algorithms ensure the highest probability of detection whilst ensuring a minimum of nuisance alarms from natural causes.

The Sabre communications interface is based on BACnet/IP technology and integrates with EntroWatch access control software. Sabre alarms can be displayed in real time in the EntroWatch software, alongside video images from an integrated security surveillance package.

Sabre Technology

Sabre utilises laser light transmitted along a fibre optic cable and analysis of the return pattern. Unlike infrared, copper or coaxial based detection systems, Sabre products are not susceptible to electrical or weather-related interference and are able to provide uninterrupted monitoring. The system is suitable for hazardous industrial locations where there may be a fire or explosion risk as well as harsh environments with extreme temperature ranges.

Sabre Fonic

A fence mounted perimeter intrusion detection system that is highly cost-effective for fences up to 1km in length. Two or more Sabre II processors can be installed to monitor specific zones along the fence installation. The Sabre units can be supplied in an IP65 enclosure for external installation or an IP20 rack mount tray for use in a server rack.

Sabre Line

A buried pressor sensor suitable for covert applications under grass, gravel. Sabre Line is undetectable (using metal detectors) and can be buried in a wide range of ground and humidity conditions. The system can be easily installed in zones with various lengths, widths and shapes.

Sabre Cable

Provides a reliable, covert and highly effective early warning of potential cable theft from troughs, hangers or overhead gantries. Installed as part of a new installation or as a retrofit.

Sabre Tape

Consists of a specially prepared mild-steel tape, which is pre-galvanised and polyester coated. The fibre optic cable is laid into the tape, which is then sealed. SabreTape is available with an aggressive (barbed) or non-aggressive finish and can be installed as a complete fence or as a collapsible, anti-climb outrigger on an existing installation.

Sabre AquaMesh

A rigid steel grating with an interlaced fibre-optic sensor cable which is fully encased in solid resin. Designed for semi or fully-submerged water course security applications.

Sabre OptiMesh

Forms a physically flexible, waterproof and tamperproof fibre optic detection mesh suitable for wall-mounting within a wall cavity or covered with a suitable building fabric, moving flexible structures, docks and jetties, commercial and military projects.

Sabre provides ideal protection for buried applications in sterile areas or over open ground where effective intrusion detection is essential.
