Southwest Microwave Expands Capabilities of Model 316 Microwave Sensor

Southwest Microwave are promoting enhancements to its INTREPIDâ„¢ Model 316 Digital Microwave Link highlighting the sensor's expanded intrusion detection capabilities, nuisance alarm resistance and ability to withstand physical and cyber-tampering or environmental extremes.

First introduced over a decade ago and successfully protecting critical infrastructure and assets at many of Europe's most security-sensitive sites, Model 316 now couples Southwest Microwave's field-proven RF detection technology with its leading-edge INTREPID embedded digital signal processing (DSP), maximizing the sensor's ability to discriminate between legitimate intrusion attempts and environmental disturbances or other false targets.

Designed for the protection of fence lines, open areas, gates, entryways and rooftop applications, this advanced, all-weather, CE-rated volumetric sensor has a 122-metre detection range and operates at K-band frequency, enabling detection of slow-moving intruders and limiting susceptibility to interference from external radar or other microwave systems. Unique parabolic dish and antenna design assures superior beam control and predictable Fresnel zones, further enhancing probability of detection (PD) and low nuisance alarm rates (NAR).

Offering maximum protection against sabotage, Model 316 is an ideal detection solution for security-sensitive sites such as critical utilities, correctional facilities or government / military installations. Heavy duty components and packaging, integrated radome tamper switches and optional steel enclosures for external wiring and connections prevent physical abuse. Integrated EMI/RFI shielding protects sensor electronics against external electromagnetic or RF interference.
