Southwest Microwave has expanded its suite of intelligent microwave sensor technologies with the introduction of the IP-based INTREPID Model 336-POE Long Range Digital Microwave Link. This all-weather, Power over Ethernet (POE) sensor couples field-proven RF detection performance with secure network connectivity. With a range of 457 meters, operating at K-band frequency, Model 336-POE is suited for the protection of fence lines, open areas, gates, entryways, walls or rooftops. The sensor employs advanced digital signal processing algorithms to optimize discrimination between intrusion attempts and environmental disturbances, mitigating risk of site compromise while preventing nuisance alarms. The system recognizes unique profiles of intruders walking, running or jumping through the detection field, offers enhanced crawl and vehicle detection, and optimizes performance in narrow corridors. Along with instantly triggering an alarm when an intrusion attempt is detected, the sensor alerts on unexpected changes in microwave alignment signal. A configuration security feature also provides notification when changes to device settings are attempted, ensuring that only approved modifications are implemented.
