Our SOLARIS autonomous active infrared barrier needs no introduction. Installed on numerous sites in Europe and throughout the world, its solar energy supply and radio communication make it a reference in the perimeter security market.
Created in 2009 by SORHEA’s engineers, the SOLARIS column was the first “low power” infrared barrier on the market. Its very low energy consumption allows it to operate in all weather conditions over a 100m range. The solar power supply is backed up by a battery that guarantees two months of operation in complete darkness.
SOLARIS has already been installed on various sites in Scandinavia and Canada, and functions just as well as a 12V or 230V powered system in these “low light” latitudes.
Alarm information is transmitted without cabling via a dynamic radio mesh network. As no cabling is required, SOLARIS is easy to install and reduces civil engineering costs.
Celebrating its 13th anniversary this year, SOLARIS is still as great as ever. SOLARIS won the GIT Security Award 2022: this prize is given every year by the international magazine GIT SECURITY to reward the most efficient perimeter security products with the most innovative functionalities.
Like all SORHEA products, SOLARIS benefits from the constant work of our R&D teams to remain as efficient and reliable as possible. To achieve the best possible infrared barrier performance, SORHEA boasts a high density of infrared beams that creates a vitrual wall that can not be breached without sending an alarm. The denser the infrared wall, the finer and more reliable the detection.
With 10 cells on 3-meter columns, SOLARIS is currently the only existing autonomous infrared barrier offering such a high infrared density, over a range of 100m.
The SOLARIS NG also benefits from SORHEA’s technological progress on the radio. Full encryption of the SOLARIS radio network ensures maximum data security, and communication via the LoRa protocol offers long range, energy savings and good resistance to interference.
With 35 years of experience with infrared, we are extending our proven expertise in wired columns to our stand-alone high columns. The train-filtering functionality, so far only available on MAXIRIS barriers, is now available on our autonomous SOLARIS NG barriers. This algorithm, developed by our Research Department, can tell the difference between a vehicle (train, metro, even plane) and an individual passing between two columns. Thus, no unwanted alarm is created, and the perimeter security system is not interrupted by a train or metro.
This new generation of SOLARIS is also available in an all-plastic version. Made of polyacetal, the housing makes the column frangible: SOLARIS NG can then be installed on very specific sites such as airport runways and high voltage transformer sites.
Finally, this new generation of SOLARIS has been developed in accordance with the highest international standards, allowing it to be installed on all sensitive sites around the world.
