Optex Redwall Integration

Effective Perimeter Security

As the cost of hiring security guards continues to rise, the need for intelligent perimeter security is growing. The integration between Protege GX and Optex Redwall laser scan detectors enables you to effectively secure your assets and protect your people while reducing false alarms and the need for unnecessary guard call outs.

Redwall detectors work by constantly emitting laser beams at a target once they sense movement, to identify an objects size, speed, and distance from the device. They then process that information with a unique algorithm, resulting in a highly reliable detection system with minimal false alarms.

How it works

The detectors communicate with a Protege GX Controller via Ethernet to interface seamlessly with Protege GX.

Detectors are configured as input expanders within Protege GX. The inputs and trouble inputs associated with the detectors are mapped to specific Redwall event codes, enabling you to monitor the state of the detectors. As the states change, these inputs can also generate alarms within Protege GX.

How it works


  • Increased reliability: Advanced algorithms offer accurate detection in real time, significantly reducing false alarms.
  • Detection in difficult conditions: The detectors provide advanced accuracy in environments where there is little or no light, drastic elevation changes, fog or snow.
  • Immediate, real-time response: Immediate, real-time response: Built-in event codes can be used to trigger alarms and provide real-time alerts in Protege GX for a fast and appropriate response.
  • Flexible mounting options: Detectors can be mounted vertically or horizontally to provide precise detection capability according to the application and site conditions.
