Optex is supporting Pointer Ltd, a leading provider of training and qualifications for young people in the security and fire sector in the United Kingdom, and its Apprenticeship scheme through a donation of sensors and detection solutions.

A range of reconditioned Optex sensors will be used to support Pointer’s Apprenticeship training programme to give students practical hands-on security design and installation experience as part of its training and development portfolio.

Among the systems provided, Optex has donated a Redscan RLS-3060 Lidar sensor, a range of outdoor curtain PIR sensors, long-range intrusion detection sensors, and Flip X Standard indoor detection sensors.

Rick Wakeham, Senior Technology Manager at Optex, says: “the mission of Optex is as a leading developer and innovator of sensing and detection solutions, we are passionate about the continued development and advancement of the industry and its people.

“We are pleased to be supporting Pointers and its Apprenticeship scheme with this donation of sensors. It is particularly satisfying to see them being used to train a new generation of security installers.”
