Bi-static Microwave Technology
EASY CONFIGURATION : Integrated audible and visual alignment tools for easy set-up
EASY INSTALLATION : Integrated power supply and unexposed wiring
LONG RANGE DETECTION : Up to 220m of detection
With a range of 220m, the PROWAVE microwave technology barrier has been designed for quick and easy installation and commissioning by a single person. Its modern and innovative design features an integrated power supply unexposed connector cables.
PROWAVE’s high-frequency antenna provides exceptional volumetric detection capability, is adaptable to many site configurations. Set-up is also quick and easy thanks to built-in sensitivity adjustment features, a switch to set selectable response times and visual and audible alignment tools for verification.

While microwave technology barriers can be installed on uneven surfaces, it is preferable not to install where dead zones (soil/ground gaps) and sensitive zones (bumps, rocks) exist.
Zone must be free from vegetation and other obstacles that can obstruct the detection zone.
If installed between two metal barriers, distortions of the lobe may be generated. In this case, ensure the width between the barriers is more than 16 feet (5 m).
Interference may be created by the barriers themselves. It is therefore advisable not to install a transmitters close to each other. If required, cross the lobes at 90 ° and move as far apart as possible.
When several barriers are aligned, provide a detection lobe overlap area of 10 m.
To avoid dead zones being created at the foot of microwave barriers, cross the lobes to avoid intrusion.
Microwave technology consists of a transmitter creating a directional electromagnetic field, and a receiver that detects and analyzes changes in this field in the event of an intrusion in the zone. Through the emitting and analysis of a very high frequency radio wave, 9.9GHz (X-band), movements and breaks in the wave cause an alarm. The wave creates an oval shape with a thickness of up to 40 feet (12m) and covering a maximum of 820 feet (250m). Microwave barriers provide surveillance over a long range in all weather conditions (undisturbed by fog, rain, snow, etc.).
