XField ® Terrain Following Volumetric Sensor

Company: Fiber Guard (Pty) Ltd

Type: Sensors, Detection Equipment

The XField ® sensor is a terrain following volumetric sensor that creates an electrostatic field around a set of 4 or 8 parallel field and sense wires that causes it’s processor to sense changes when events, such as intruders penetrating the wires take place.


XField ® is used in free standing, fence mounted, roof and wall applications. The system’s tall, narrow, well contained detection zone allows the sensor to be installed in a wide variety of applications and minimizes nuisance alarms caused by nearby moving objects.            

How it works

Digital Signal Processing (DSP) analyzes the capacitance of each sense wire independently and uses the amplitude of change (size of the intruder), rate of change movement of the intruder) and the time the target spends in the detection fields to qualify the alarm.
