About REDSCAN mini-Pro

Our high-performance laser scan sensor is capable of identifying "size," "distance from the sensor," and "speed." In its normal mode, it constructs a detection area of 20m x 20m with a single unit, enabling the creation of robust intrusion alert systems in both indoor and outdoor environments. Additionally, we have adopted newly developed infrared LED illumination technology and a Full HD camera, enhancing the usability of Optex's laser scan sensor series' visual confirmation function and making it applicable in a broader range of surveillance environments.

This award recognizes its design for achieving extremely fast and accurate detection under various weather conditions, demonstrating its capability to address the most challenging aspects of boundary surveillance applications.
