Taut Wire is an ideal solution for long perimeters with minimal infrastructure (such as borders or remote sites), as well as for harsh climate installations.
Sensor cables can be direct-buried in a variety of mediums including most normal
soil types, asphalt and concrete. In soil the cables are buried approximately 23 cm
(9 in.) below the surface. In asphalt and concrete slots are cut approximately 6 cm
(2.25 in.) deep The terrain-following, volumetric detection field is typically 1 m (3.28
ft.) high by 3 m (9.84 ft.) wide by up to 800 m (2625 ft. or 1/2 mile) long per sensor
processor. Systems can be standalone or networked for long perimeters whereby
sensor cables are connected together to create a continuous perimeter.
OmniTrax uses ported (“leaky”) coaxial sensor cables to create an
invisible elecromagnetic detection field. The cables are designed
with apertures in the transmit cable’s outer conductor which allow
energy to escape and be retrieved by the corresponding parallel
receive cable. OmniTrax uses a patented coded pulse signal
technique to determine the exact intrusion location, which can
identify multiple intruders simultaneously.
Detection is based on the intruder’s electrical conductivity, size
and speed. The Probablity of detection (Pd) for an upright 35
kg (77 lbs.) intruder, penetrating through the detection field and
moving between 50 mm (2 in.) per second to 8 m (26 ft.) per
second is greater than 99%, with 95% confidence. Objects
weighing less than 10 kg (22 lbs.) are rejected with a statistical
confidence level of 95%. Any attempt to tamper with the cables,
the processor or its enclosure, causes an alarm.
OmniTrax sensor calibration is simple. Walking down the
sensor cables while in calibration mode allows the system to
automatically adjust to the sensitivity of each meter (3.3 ft.) and
thus compensates for site variations. Buried cable installation has
never been so easy with calibrated thresholding.
Each OmniTrax processor can divide the perimeter protected by
its two cable sets into as many as 50 alarm zones. Zones can
be changed at any time by technical personnel using the UCM
Knowing exactly where an intruder enters the perimeter is vital
to assessing the situation and initiating a response. Senstar
pioneered the development of buried coaxial cable technology,
starting with Guidar in 1976 and then with successive product
generations including Sentrax and Perimitrax®. With OmniTrax,
Senstar extends the technology to include the location of intruders
with pinpoint accuracy.
