firmware and configuration upgrade

OPTEX adds range of functionality to REDSCAN RLS-3060 laser series

Users of the award-winning REDSCAN RLS-3060 laser series can now deploy additional features after intruder detection specialist OPTEX upgraded the series’ firmware and configuration software.

Version 8.0 of the RLS-3060 firmware and REDSCAN Manager introduce functionality to various models that enhances performance and gives operators more flexibility.

Both models in the long-range, 190 degrees 2D LiDAR series – RLS-3060L and RLS 3060SH – can more flexibly manage dry contacts, now offering the option to switch from normally open (N.O) to normally closed (N.C).

Features hitherto restricted to the high-end model have now been added to the standard, 30m-radius RLS-3060L model. First, four detection areas can now be independently adjusted on an analogue connection, or up to eight areas on an IP connection. And second, the shape of the detection area can be customised to site layout. An area allocation or masking function equips users to precisely define several independent detection zones.

The LiDAR laser scanner can now detect a standing or squatting person over 100m – making it a more effective solution for perimeter detection

The upgrades introduce an indoor/outdoor loitering detection mode to the standard laser scanner model. This detects suspicious behaviour by identifying when a person or object is staying longer in a selected detection area than the preset duration.

The advanced RLS-3060-SH model, which is designed to operate in harsher environments, has its detection area extended to 50m radius courtesy of a new Detection Range Expansion.

Used in horizontal mode this setting allows the creation of a pre-warning zone from 30m (100ft) to 50m (165ft) radius in which larger objects, like vehicles, can be detected. Set up in a vertical detection mode and mounted at 3.6m (12ft), the LiDAR laser scanner can detect a standing or squatting person over 100m – making it a more effective solution for perimeter detection.

“With its new features and its integration with a number of VMS and PSIM platforms, our REDSCAN RLS-3060 series is ideal to protect perimeter, roof tops, ceilings for commercial sites and critical infrastructure,” said Ryosuke Miwa, Senior General Manager of Global Security Division from OPTEX Japan. “We are delighted that the new version has now been rolled out.”
