Senstar Sells More Than 200 Km of Perimeter Intrusion Detection Systems

Senstar Corporation has sold more than 200 Km of perimeter intrusion detection systems (PIDS) protecting solar power generation facilities in Germany.

“The most popular product for solar facilities protection to date has been Senstar’s FlexPS fence mounted sensor,” said Peter Goering, managingdDirector of Senstar GmbH. “FlexPS has proven its reliability and robustness in operation as well as ease of installation.”

Unlike large scale power plants, which require multi-layer security systems to protect against threats such as terrorism, smaller and more eco-friendly facilities often use more affordable PIDS solutions in order to protect against common threats of theft and vandalism.

After Germany’s decision to increase its renewable energy resources the installation of photo voltaic (PV) plants increased rapidly. In 2011 alone, a capacity of 25,000 megawatts was installed; and in May 2012 the generated power of the PV plants across the country, all together, matched the power of approximately 20 nuclear power stations (Reuters, Berlin, 05/26/2012).
