Alpha cable

Proven and reliable detection

The Alpha sensor cable is the core of Heras’ Microphonic PIDS systems, designed for enhanced perimeter security.

Its magnetic construction has a number of key components/ techniques to ensure very accurate intruder detection:

  • Lubritube – specially lubricated tubes that enable accurate detection
  • Overlapping aluminium shielding tape and twisted pair cabling provides an effective resistance to EMI
  • Linear detection along the entire perimeter to eliminate security blind spots
  • Detects virtually all malicious attacks up to 1.5 m above and below sensor the installation on fence, wall or across a roof

Alpha cable types are available with:

  • UV-resistant polyethylene sheath for fixing to fence lines
  • Flexible stainless steel conduits for high security sites and installation in razor wire

The optimum product for CNI and high security locations when used with Heras’ superior quality GeoMic analysers.

  1. Proven and reliable detection
  2. Superior audio clarity to other detection methods • Robust and weather resistant
  3. EMI immunity
  4. Simple and fast installation and repair

Experts in perimeter protection

Physical perimeter protection is best explained as systems and technologies designed to protect people and assets within a defined area by preventing unauthorised physical intrusions.

The primary defense is the perimeter boundary for which we designed the Heras Security Model. This model serves 5 goals: to demarcate the boundary of the premises, to deter, delay and detect unwanted intrusion and to deny access for unauthorised parties.
