Senstar’s FiberPatrol ranging fiber optic intrusion detection system is now securing the perimeter of the U.S. headquarters campus of a major international oil and gas company.

FiberPtarol has been up and running along the site’s 40,000 ft. perimeter, consisting of three fence types and 40 gates, for several months.
“Going into the project the customer was no stranger to perimeter security with various sites around the world using fence-mounted intrusion detection systems. However, the performance of the previously-installed systems was not always up to the customer’s expectations, particularly in regard to the nuisance alarm rate (NAR),” said Nancy Marshall, executive director of business development, Senstar. “With FiberPatrol, we were able to address the issue of NAR, as well as meet a number of other strict requirements. The system is working extremely well and the customer is very happy with the results.”
FiberPatrol’s fiber optic technology detects and locates intrusion attempts along fences, offering the lowest NAR and highest Probability of detection (Pd) on the market, says Senstar. It also offers accurate location of intrusions even when there are multiple simultaneous intrusions or in the presence of non-localized environmental noise. FiberPatrol also features built-in cut immunity, meaning when set up in cut immunity configuration, it continues to provide detection on the full perimeter after a cable cut.
In implementing this project, Senstar worked with integrator Kratos Public Safety and Security Solutions Inc. (PSS) and installer W-Industries Inc.
