OPTEX, the global sensor manufacturer, has launched a new firmware update for its REDSCAN PRO LiDAR Series, featuring a number of additional features that further enhance the sensors’ functionality.
The ONVIF compliant REDSCAN Pro series – which includes two models, the RLS-3060V with a range up to 30x60m and the RLS-50100V up to 50x100m – provides highly accurate detection outdoor and indoor, without any ‘gaps’ or the detection reliability ‘fading’ with range.
The upgraded firmware features dynamic event filtering, which allows for alerts to be configured to meet specific detection criteria or logic. Alarms can be raised based on the sequence of zone detection, such as a target entering a specific zone first then a second one. It allows to filter events and focus on what really matters to the security team.
In another scenario, for instance in a logistics or warehouse environment, an intelligent logic can be created based on the height of vehicles positioned by the loading bays. Delivery lorries or trucks entering the detection zones would not trigger any alarms, but smaller vehicles such as vans or cars would trigger the system.
A series of new modes have been added to the REDSCAN PRO panoramic assistance camera module. To help adapt to further applications and to varying privacy restrictions, the camera can be set in image mode, mosaic mode, which pixelates the image to make persons non-identifiable, and all black mode, to render a black screen for both viewing and recording footage.
In addition, as well as upgrades to the user interface, the new firmware update includes enhancements to the Event Log feature, enabling the import/export of video footage from one REDSCAN PRO sensor and replaying these detection events on another unit, further enhancing the visual verification process.
Masaya Kida, Managing Director of OPTEX EMEA, says OPTEX remains totally committed to further enhancing its suite of detection solutions for its customers: “We are always striving to improve and enhance our solutions to meet the needs of our customers.
“The new and updated firmware for our REDSCAN PRO LiDAR Series enhances its flexibility and functionality, making it the ideal solution for a wider range of applications.”
