Optex to debut Flip X in South Africa next month

Maidenhead, Berkshire (UK)

Optex plans to debut the company's latest Flip X series of indoor sensors at the Securex show in South Africa in June 2023.

Optex, a leading sensor manufacturer for more than 40 years, will be demonstrating its new Flip X indoor series for the first time in South Africa at Securex next month.

The new sensor range – which comprises the Flip X Standard and Advanced models - provides highly accurate and reliable detection thanks to a bespoke pyroelectric sensor and a unique lens that can be ‘flipped’ to provide both a narrow and wide detection in a single device.

The sleek and compact Grade 2 Flip X Standard sensor is ideal for securing indoor environments such as residential areas or small commercial sites. The Grade 3 Flip X Advanced sensor is designed for environments with a heightened level of risk, and guards against attempts to mask or tamper with the product. It is suited to larger commercial buildings, datacentres, and banks.

Securex will also be the first occasion in South Africa for Optex to present its recently launched Fiber Sensys Echopoint Distributed Acoustic Sensors (DAS), its latest innovation in fibre optic sensing technology. The Echopoint series utilises an intelligent detection algorithm, that provides precise detection of +/- 6m in a range of up to 100km – designed for protecting large perimeters and high security sites.

During the event, the team will also be demonstrating its Chekt solution, a cloud-based software that integrates third-party alarms, cameras, video and sensor technologies, bridging all these components together. The solution runs through a highly secure protocol software in which users can monitor in real time, deterring intruders with lights or audio systems that can be controlled remotely.

Scott Wilson, Divisional Manager at Optex, says that Securex is the perfect event for Optex to showcase its latest innovations: “As South Africa’s leading platform and showcase for security technologies, Securex is the ideal opportunity to demonstrate our latest innovations and detection solutions to our customers and partners in South Africa.

“Throughout the event, we will be providing live demonstrations of our new solutions, proving the versatility of our Flip X indoor sensor range and the pinpoint accuracy of the new Echopoint DAS series.”
