TORSUS - Fence protection system - ATLINE SP.J.
TORSUS is a line of perimeter intrusion detection systems for the protection of rigid metal fences (palisades). Being installed along the boundary fence, TORSUS systems can be left in operation 24/7, letting people move freely inside the protected area. TORSUS consists of special torsion sensors which perceive the flexions and the torsions the bearing posts are subject during an intrusion attempt.The particular shape of the sensor and the presence of a piezoceramic transducer provide TORSUS systems a very high sensitivity which can even detect climbing actions performed without causing vibrations and noise. The sensors are installed to the bottom of each bearing post on the internal side of the fence and in some cases they can be also embedded inside the posts, to make them completely invisible. TORSUS systems can be installed on different types of rigid metal fences, both industrial and craftmade. In most cases they are compatible with the preexisting rigid structure, with no neet to install a new fence. TORSUS systems are immune to adverse climatic events (wind, rain, snow and extreme temperatures) and man-made environmental factors such as nearby roads, highways and railways. The sensors highly tolerate the presence of vegetation, such as high grass and small bushes and they can be also installed on fences completely covered with evergreen climbing plants. All TORSUS systems are factory pre-wired, to simplify the installation and reduce the electrical junctions to be made in the field.
