Microwave Defender

The MD5xxx Microwave Defender volumetric sensors with X-band or K-band radio waves offer the best solution for protecting gates or sites with no perimeter fenceline. The Microwave Defender family of alarm processors employs leading-edge high-performance digital technology or low-cost analog microwave technology combined with digital signal processing (DSP). Digital models provide enhanced reliability through the DSP analysis of transmitted microwave signals using “fuzzy” logic.
The digital models employ microprocessor controlled logic and DSP technology to create advanced behavior models to profile and analyze received signals, looking for intruder-generated signal events. The MD5xxx detects intruders walking, running, crawling, or rolling, at distances ranging from 50m up to 500m and records all alarm events on the unit. The microwave intrusion detection products are immune to rapid temperature gradation and provide continuous environmental monitoring.
Deployed in transmit (Tx) and receive (Rx) unit pairs, the Microwave Defender is ideal for protecting high-risk sites, such as nuclear power plants, military bases, petrochemical sites, and correctional facilities. Additionally, the 16 selectable, tuned crystal, modulation channels are controlled by the microprocessor and resist masking and other tamper attempts while providing reliable intrusion detection.

Applications: Sliding gates and perimeters where fencing is not practical

  • Digital or analog
  • Distances up to 500 meters
  • Meets most specifications for volumetric sensors
  • Stand-alone or as a secondary sensor for high-security sites
