Magal Announces Orders for More Than 20 Sites for its Fiber Optic Based Sensor Solution

YEHUD, Israel, March 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

Magal Security Systems, Ltd. (NASDAQ GM: MAGS) today announced that since the beginning of the year it has received a record number of orders for more than 20 sites for its fiber optic based sensor product, FiberPatrol.

Customer applications include fence mounted and buried protection of critical infrastructure such as chemical plants in Western Europe and North America, public utility sites, transportation depots and a military base in Southeast Asia.

New technology added to the FiberPatrol product line includes artificial intelligence (AI) techniques enabling the buried sensor to classify and differentiate between humans and animals, vehicles, excavation and even tunneling - whether manually or by machine. The buried sensor is capable of detecting manual digging up to 100 feet away, moving vehicles up to 50 feet away and footsteps up to 30 feet away. Over a typical 25 mile range, it has a typical location accuracy of less than 30 feet when buried and 12 feet for the fence mounted sensor.

Commented Saar Koursh, CEO of Magal, "This latest version of our FiberPatrol product line has introduced a truly ground-breaking technology. While simple to install, it provides highly sensitive covert protection over long distances and is particularly suited for border security. Furthermore, its ability to accurately classify the types of intrusion events using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence techniques, significantly lowers costly nuisance alarms, which is mission critical in remote border regions. The attractiveness of this newest version of our product is evident by the sharp increase in orders received since its release. The FiberPatrol product is clearly another growth engine for Magal and we look forward to further growth from this product line in 2018 and beyond."
