FiberPatrol FP1400

The FiberPatrol FP1400 is a scalable, easily configurable, multi-zone fiber-optic intrusion system providing high performance and cost-effective monitoring for medium-sized fenced perimeters. The FP1400 delivers industry leading state-of-the art features including: software configurable virtual zones, cut immunity, and simple, convenient installation.

FP1400 follows in the highly acclaimed FiberPatrol family of Optellios products – now engineered for the Zone market – offering superior detection sensitivity and environmental compensation in an easily integrated, multi-zone architecture.

Installation requirements for the FP1400 provide the easiest and simplest methods for a cost effective solution. Unlike typical zone-based intrusion detection systems, the cable installation for FP1400 is straightforward; cable is installed in the middle of the fence, in a straight line, without junction boxes or connections, along the entire perimeter. Zones are defined in the unit’s software and may be revised without changes to the physical sensor layout along the perimeter. This greatly simplifies the design architecture, installation, configuration and maintenance, and significantly reduces deployment cost.

The FP1400 is available in scalable zone configurations supporting as few as 8 and as many as 28 zones, with a single centrally located system controller. Like all FiberPatrol systems, the controller may be remotely located, as the system requires no electric power or alarm communications along the perimeter.

Using the same standard single-mode cable as other FiberPatrol systems, the sensor is available with extra fibers; usable for video or other communications infrastructure, eliminating the need for additional cabling around the perimeter.

The passive, all-optical sensor deployed along the perimeter fence monitors the complete perimeter with no supporting infrastructure: Simple, Convenient, Secure. The inert cable system is immune to all forms of electromagnetic energy “up to and including lightning” and fully complies with intrinsic safety requirements for oil and gas facilities. The cable, a rugged outdoor COTS (commercial, off-the-shelf) sensor cable, is impervious to the elements and will provide decades of maintenance-free operation.

Like all products in the FiberPatrol family, the FP1400 comes with a selection of convenient integration options: TCP/IP for network-based integration, RS-232 for local hardware integration, and zone relay contacts for a basic alarm interface. No proprietary elements are necessary for communicating with the system controller. The FP1400 is natively supported by the FiberPatrol Remote Alarm Management System (FPRAMS) and can also report to a variety of 3rd-party alarm management, video management, and physical security information management (PSIM) systems.
