APIRIS 3000 / 3100


Triple technology barrier

  • RELIABILITY : 3 technologies for a yet more reliable detection
  • AUTOMATIC ADAPATATION : Detection adapted to external conditions
  • IP TECHNOLOGY : Remote maintenance and remote configuration


The triple-technology barrier APIRIS 3100 is the only one that combines a multiplexed infrared beam barrier, a high-frequency barrier and a high-frequency sensor with Doppler effect. The alarm activation principle is based on simultaneous intrusion detection by at least two of the technologies, including infrared. This system makes detection reliable and limits unwanted alarms.

Moreover, APIRIS 3100 integrates the zoning function used to optimise the use of video domes. A maximum ofthree virtual intrusion zones can be defined and configured per barrier.

IP Technology

Thanks to the Ethernet connection of the MAXIBUS UNIVERSAL hub, each APIRIS 3100 column can be configured remotely or locally via the integrated web server.


The APIRIS 3000 – 3100 columns are designed to protect sensitive sites. Its triple technology offers a high detection and dissuasion level in the field of perimeter detection.

To use the barriers correctly, it is important to ensure that the barrier is not installed on an unstable support (e.g. badly sealed pole, etc.). Before installing an infrared barrier, check that the ground is quite level and will guarantee the stability of the columns with time. A maximum of 10° elevation may be tolerated between the columns. In case of elevation above 10°, contact SORHEA’s sales department.

Check that no vegetation can block the beams, no matter the season and weather condition (wind).

It is also important to check the cleanliness of the covers: it is important to clean them with a soft and damp cloth at least once a year.


This technology works at a wavelength above that of visible light (950nm), which makes the IR beam invisible to the naked eye.

The infrared beams are transmitted and received by infrared cells. The transmitter cellsgenerate a pulsed beam that is sent towards the receiver cellswhich capture the infrared pulses and transform them into electrical signals. In the absence or variation of the signal (loss of 95% of the transmitted signal), an intrusion alarm is triggered. To prevent the receiver cells from being interfered with by the transmitted infrared beams thecells are multiplexed.

This principle consists in transmitting an infrared pulse in a synchronised manner, via an optical or wired link between the transmitter and receiver columns. This feature is also used to optimize the alignment of the cells (“alignment feedback”). All the SORHEA IR barriers are multiplexed (except UNIRIS II & BIRIS II).
