IP Infrared Barrier


Avantgarde-IR is a high security active Infrared Barrier (Virtual Fence) enclosed in two tamper protected extruded aluminum columns equipped with Sicurit last generation of digital patented bi-directional Infrared Technology with range up to 200m designed, but not limited, for the protection of Critical Infrastructures (Avantgarde™ meets Environmental Class IV, Grade 4 – Risk HIGH according to EN 50131). 

Unique Bi-Directional Infrared Technology

Avantgarde-IR is equipped with SICURIT last generation of Digital Bi-directional IR Technology. Thanks to the patented 3TX+3RX Optics Beam heads, in case of any false exposure to direct light sources (e.g., sunlight/car headlights) the inflicted receiver raises a pre-alarm, but as the corresponding receiver on the other side is getting a correct signal, Avantgarde-IR will not set an alarm condition thus drastically reducing nuisance alarm rates.  

Avantgarde-IR results therefore to be the only active infrared barrier completely immune to direct light exposure.

End-To-End Integration
AVANTGARDE is the only high security active barrier that can be integrated end-to-end in any security platform by means of bi-directional API or Modbus TCP protocols.
Additionally, it is already integrated in Milestone, Genetec, Geutebrueck and IndigoVision thanks to the specially designed A-Bridge Gateway that allows to seamlessly connect up to 128 set without the need of any additional security management platform which would result, at this level, just useless.

Reduced cabling Infrastructure (PoE+)
Thanks to the optional built-in PoE+ splitter, AVANTGARDE easily integrates in new or existing IP Networks via a single Ethernet cable for data and power transmission. This reduces installation costs and allow grater system design flexibility.

Easy to Maintain – Predictive Maintenance Tools

AVANTGARDE requires very low maintenance, time to time an external front-cover cleaning to remove dust or sand. Using the built In Signal efficiency analysis function (SEA), periodic maintenance activities are not required as AVANTGARDE will promptly notify, with prior advance notice, the needs of such intervention.
