SIOUX Mems 3D
Sioux is an innovative fence mounted perimeter intrusion detection system, the result of a research project conducted together with the Polytechnic of Milan, which has resulted in the joint filing of 3 patents.
The system comprises a multitude of MEMS type tri-axial accelerometer sensors, organized in sub-systems of seven. One master sensor and six slave sensors make up the sub-systems: each of them is individual and provides its own signal on a different channel to its master sensor.
Each master sensor contains the physical location of the six slave sensors that analyses and is, therefore, able to combine this analysis of signal distribution in relation to the adjacent sub-systems.

Thanks to the ability to process every single sensor that makes up the system, it is possible to adapt the response to any type of fence, even with mixed types within the same site. It is possible to adjust the working parameters for each zone, and, inside the zone, for each individual sensor.
The very high probability of detection (P.O.D.) and the very low nuisance alarm rate (N.A.R.) of this system are the result of processing, for each of the three-accelerometer signals produced by each transducer, according to “fuzzy logic”.
TOUCH & ZONE™
The installer can easily configure the zones in the field by walking around the perimeter and physically “touching” the sensors to select the beginning and end of each of the available zones. This capability makes it immediate, quick and easy to operate, while it is still possible to configure remotely using the Sioux test software.
It is possible to gain information about the position of the accelerometer in free space by exploiting the capabilities of the MEMS sensors with respect to the acceleration of gravity. During installation, the position of the MEMS accelerometer, whatever it may be, will be memorized. If the position alters by more than a pre-set, variable number of degrees (e.g. 5°) it will produce a tamper alarm. This allows Sioux to detect possible physical changes in the fence, which probably indicate an attempt to breach or re-position the fence protection system, either when the sensor is removed from the surface of the fence, or when the fence is bent while trying to break through.
PIN POINT LOCATION
A specific channel on its master sensor, which knows the exact location of the sensor, identifies and analyses individually each MEMSMEMS. Each intrusion event will be identified with a precision of 1m regardless
the distance between the sensors.
