What is Perimbar?
Perimbar is specified throughout the world as the first choice for perimeter protection in a variety of commercial, governmental and domestic applications. It is an external infra-red beam detection system available in virtually any size with a range of up to 150 metres.
The securing of attractively landscaped or environmentally sensitive areas calls for an intruder detection system which is discreet, highly effective and free from false alarms. What’s more, when it isn’t aesthetically desirable or cost-effective to secure large expanses of open ground with either fencing or walls, Perimbar’s advanced electronics can be tailored to provide the ideal solution.
Perimbar uses attractive and robust towers containing transmitters whose energy is collected by receivers up to 150 metres away. When an intruder breaks these beams an alarm is set off. Where a physical barrier already exists, Perimbar may be effectively deployed either on top or just inside the perimeter and has many features which make it a secure choice for these situations.
Unlike passive detectors it cannot be covered, masked or inadvertently blocked without setting off the alarm. Any attempt to scale the unit will immediately be detected either by the sensitive internal beams being breached or by the cleverly designed anti-climb-over top cap being activated.
All infra-red external beam systems have the advantage of being immune to masking and offer cost-effective external detection. Perimbar goes much further in its protection, with its unique Synclink and optional sync line monitor.
Synclink means that individual receivers will only respond to their own transmitters. This avoids interference between units allowing for closer beam spacing. It also provides an ideal solution for irregularly shaped perimeters.
For greater security it prevents an additional transmitter being inserted to overcome the system. It also has a unique feature in allowing a transmitter at the bottom of a tower to be directed at a receiver at the top of another tower to overcome the effects of undulating ground.
In other words, Perimbar offers significantly higher security and is the only system capable of working effectively with uneven ground and unusually shaped compounds. Sync line monitoring adds another level of security by generating an alarm condition if the Synclink signals are interrupted.
Perimbar is also unique in that it is available in virtually any size from one metre upwards. In fact, columns as tall as ten metres have been successfully installed. This feature coupled with a special anti-climb-over top cap makes Perimbar many times more secure than its competitors.
Perimbar’s other main advantage over its competitors is its modular construction which allows beams and their associated heaters and other modules to be fitted in virtually any configuration, allowing you to space the units for maximum security. Indeed, Geoquip has installed Perimbars with beams every 150mm – a configuration unmatched by any competitive system.
In common with all other Geoquip infra-red beams, Perimbar has exceptional immunity to false alarms caused by sunlight, air turbulence, objects moving adjacent to it and the effects of RFI.
