AgilFence PIDS (Perimeter Intrusion Detection System)
The AgilFence PIDS is a designed and developed solution for fence security offering highly accurate and instantaneous intrusion detection. This enables a facility’s security force to respond quickly and effectively.
The AgilFence PIDS uses advanced optical fiber sensors, known as Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG). These are embedded in the optical fiber cable to form an array of sensors for perimeter fence intrusion detection. These extremely sensitive FBG sensors are used to sense incidents in various scenarios where very slight disturbance to the physical parameters will trigger a response in the optical fiber sensor that translates into an intrusion alert.
The FBG sensors work like a colour-selective mirror (see illustration A). Each sensor reflects a specific colour back to the system under normal conditions. Optical fiber cables embedded with a series of such FBG sensors, each with a unique colour, is then mounted on the fence (see illustration B). Intrusions which include climbs, cutting of the fence etc. will affect this steady state and change the colour that is reflected by the sensor back to the system. When a change in colour is detected, an alert will be triggered.
AgilFence PIDS can be deployed speedily, as it needs only a single run of optical fiber cable around the perimeter fence line, compared to double or triple runs for other solutions. The system is UV-resistant and protected by armoured cable, allowing it to be fence-mounted without any difficulty. At the heart of the AgilFence PIDS is ST Electronics proprietary intelligent signal processing system that has the ability to adapt and adjust automatically to different physical environmental factors and weather elements. Its precise discrimination and analysis of events enable the AgilFence PIDS to achieve a high probability of detection with an extremely low false alarm rate at all times. AgilFence PIDS allows the sensors to be customised to any desired effective length spacing, which result in a more localised pinpointing accuracy of any intrusion attempt. This unmatched high performance level significantly reduces the number of CCTVs required to be deployed around the perimeter compared to alternative systems, thus significantly reducing deployment costs. The made-in-Singapore AgilFence PIDS is the first-of-its-kind perimeter intrusion detection and security system in the world. With simple and fast installation, low deployment cost and ease of maintenance, the AgilFence PIDS gives users a world-class security system installed at their premises.
