Optellios’s FiberPatrol 1400 rejects nuisance and false alarms, supports 8 to 28 zones and features cut immunity.

Optellios recently announced the FP1400 system—the newest addition to its FiberPatrol family of perimeter intrusion-detection products. “The FP1400 operates with superior performance and features unsurpassed in this technology-driven segment of the security industry,” the company boasted when announcing the system. “The FP1400 uses state-of-the-art, algorithm-based distributed sensing, coupled with frequency filtering, to reject environmental sources of nuisance and false alarms, while providing superior intrusion detection. The FP1400 will support from 8 to 28 zones that are software-configurable, cut-immune, and simple to install—with no field infrastructure required other than commercial off-the-shelf fiber-optic cable.”

Kevin Bradley, Optellios’s senior vice president for sales, marketing and operations, commented, “The FP1400 has been designed with the medium-sized, critical infrastructure perimeter market in mind. From an integrator standpoint, the cost-effective and simple installation will allow their business to secure additional opportunities while reducing their labor costs and the infrastructure investment necessary with other systems.”
The company lists the following features and characteristics of the FP1400.
