Product of the Day - 11/20/2018

RLS-3060 Redscan Laser Detector Product Series Logo

RLS-3060 Redscan Laser Detector Product Series
Optex Inc.

Redscan is an innovative laser scan detector that can detect a moving object's size, speed, and distance (Time of Flight Detection) from the detector and process that information with a unique algorithm. This results in a high-reliability detection of people with minimal false alarms. The detector can also be mounted vertically or horizontally according to the application and site conditions. When vertical detection area is selected, the Redscan creates a 200ft. detection area that functions like an invisible wall. With four outputs for remote video applications and 8 independently adjustable detection areas and REDWALL event codes, the Redscan is the ideal detector for controlling PTZ cameras and is integrated with leading VMS platforms. When horizontal detection area is selected, the Redscan creates a detection area with a radius of 100ft. and an arc of 190 deg. The detection area can be set manually or automatically. If the automatic setting is used, the detector will set the proper detection area; even for complicated area shapes. Redscan is a sophisticated next-generation outdoor detector that streamlines video monitoring and reduces installation costs.
