In addition to the standard YFEL there is strong local interest in the YFEL anti-climb model, which addresses security concerns in the South African market. Visitors will be able to source all the information they need at stand H02.

PSS Distributors will be exhibiting its Vision Series Inverter, a hybrid solar inverter that comes with a built-in charger and MPPT regulator for solar panels. These units (on demo at stand C08) are easy to install and are wall mountable. They provide information on the status of the inverter, such as the voltage, frequency and load, and use maximum power point tracking charge controllers to ensure one gets optimised power from solar panels.

Sky Electronics (stand B12) will be showcasing its services and solutions including fleet management, GPS monitoring, car alarm systems, SmartHome systems and others at the show.

Using the Adaptive Power Technology (APT) pioneered by Nemtek, these energisers offer a unique technology to detect how much power a fence can accept and handle before it starts to arc and waste energy. This maximises the power on the fence and minimises false alarms. Visitors can see the Druid range in action on LN06.

Duxbury Networking will exhibit a range of interactive security solutions at the Securex 2018 exhibition. Visitors to stand D02 will be able to examine the most recent global advances in technologies poised to strengthen the overall security blanket demanded by many organisations today.

Powerful and fast, these machines are able to protect small and large areas as they cover volume spaces from 250m³ to 500m³ depending on the model. Also on show will be its Pro-Plus line, which uses cylinder technology and is able to protect volume spaces from 200m³ to 1200m³.

SCAN IN is a BN Data app which will assist security personnel with easy tracking of vehicles and pedestrians that come in and out of residential complexes and office parks, among other guarded premises. SCAN IN scans the details of all pedestrians, vehicles and drivers when they enter premises, and records the information on a system which eliminates writing down everything in a book, thus saving time for both visitors and guards. See more at the BN Data stand E42.

Over the last 35 years, SE Controls has been developing innovative control systems that harness sustainable natural elements to create a safer and healthier indoor environment.
