LiteFENCE - How it works
Luceat anti-climb protection system is composed of 3 elements:

The analyser LiteFENCE, that analyses the flow of light

The plastic fiber cable LiteWIRE (with anti-UV filters), which transmits light

An opto-mechanic accessory (like bolts or sensors), which transforms the
vibration/oscillation/ flexion of the fence into a variation of the light signal
It is important to make sure that the cable LiteWIRE is installed correctly, i.e.:

it is fastened to the fence without introducing attenuation on the light signal;

it is installed correctly to the fence by means of opto-mechanic accessories to detect
attempts of climbing-over without false alarms.
The instructions contained in this manual will enable you to satisfy the above mentioned
conditions.
It is necessary to read this manual before installing LiteFENCE, as most of the problems that
usually occur are due to installation mistakes.

General precautions
Plastic fiber is very resistant and does not break, but bends and angles may reduce, also
significantly, the maximum distance of the system.
Do not tread or walk on the cable LiteWire
Do not pull hard on the cable LiteWire
Minimum bending radius of 25mm
LiteFENCE monitors the optical power constantly, so you can detect
installation mistakes and install the system properly.
(see: “How to use the power meter function”)

LiteFENCE for chain-link fences
The plastic optical fiber is first “woven” along the fence, going in and out as shown in the figure.
It is then affixed to the poles with tension bolts (one every 10m) and on the fence with cable ties
(1every two meters or between the two poles).
THE CABLE CROSSES THE MESH
During an attempt to climb, the fence and cable bend due to the weight of the thief. This
variation is read by the analyser that triggers the alarm via a NC relay contact which can be
connected to any alarm control panel.
Wind and vibrations caused by weather conditions and moving vehicles do not cause the fence to
bend and so it does not trigger any alarm. For this reason, the installation of the perimeter
protection system is simple and does not require the learning of any software program, ensuring
a ‘stop to false alarms’.
Depending on the required level of security, you can install on the fence:
- 1 fiber to the centre (to detect climbing and breaking);
- 2 fibers (0.5m and 1.5m from the ground up) to detect climbing and lifting;
- 4 fibers (0.25m, 0.5m, 0.8m, 1.5m from the ground up) to create an impenetrable barrier even
in the event the fence is cut.
In general, for the protection of a chain-link fence, the following components are required:
-
1 LiteFENCE analyser every 200/250m of plastic fiber cable
LiteWIRE plastic fiber cable with UV protection
2 FSMA metal connectors every LiteFENCE analyser or coupler
1 tension bolt every 10m of fiber
1 cable tie every 2m of fiber

Examples of connection schemes for chain-link fences
LiteFENCE analyzers can be connected separately or in daisy chain.
Using the LiteFENCE transmitter, you can create a point-to-point link
(with no need to close the loop)
The jumper is usually inserted: this creates independent alarm zones
(No.LiteFENCE=No. Alarm zones) on the entire perimeter;
if the jumper is not inserted, the alarm will be transmitted throughout the length
creating one single alarm zone( No. LiteFENCE=1 alarm zone)

HOW TO READ THE POWER METER DATA CORRECTLY
Plastic optical fiber is made of a polymeric material realized in such a way that it can lead the light inside and
guarantee the total reflection of the input signal, to transfer all the entering light to the exit.
However, physical and technical factors occur (ties, tension bolts, eye bolts) and cause power losses along the fiber.
That power loss is called attenuation.
Attenuation = optical power loss
Every meter of the installed plastic fiber introduces an attenuation resulting in: the more fiber you install, the
more attenuation you introduce, and the less optical power you will receive at the end of the fiber.
Optical power is measured in dBm.
FIBER ENTRANCE
0 dBm = 0meters
Example
FIBER EXIT
-10dBm = 100meters
Maximum sensitivity of Luceat systems is 30dB.
The distances mentioned take into account all common source of attenuation
(9dB every SV sensor and 0.1dB every meter of fiber)
5- While you fasten the fiber to the bolts, keep the attenuation monitored with LiteFENCE

LiteFENCE for barbed wire
On each barbed wire arm (usually one every 2m), a clip is
attached using a self- drilling screw. The
clip fastens the barbed wire and the plastic fiber together.
The plastic fiber is passed through the front of the screw,
preventing it from unscrewing, and is attached to the barbed
wire with two cable ties near the barb arms (to approx. 10 cm
from the clip) and with a third cable tie between the two
barb arms.
Any attempt to cut or bend the barbed wire (such as
deformation due to the weight of a thief) is detected by the
sensor which triggers the signal via the NC alarm output relay
(connectable to any alarm control panel).
We recommend the use of two rows of fiber attached to the
lower barbed wire and to the upper barbed wire.
In general, for the protection of a perimeter wall with barbed wire, the following components
are required:
-
1 LiteFENCE analyser every 200/250m of plastic fiber cable
LiteWIRE plastic fiber cable with UV protection
2 FSMA metal connectors every LiteFENCE analyser or coupler
1 tension bolt every 10m of fiber
1 clip every barb arm
2 cable ties every barb arm and 1 cable tie every 2 barb arms

LiteFENCE Lite with SV Lite Sensor on modular fences
(type Orsogril/Keller/Betafence/Pratika)
Our SECURITY SYSTEM “SV” is patent pending
For semi-rigid grating fencing panels (type Orsogril / Keller) and electrically welded panels
(type Betafence / Pratika) with a minimum height of 145cm.
The semi-rigid modular nets do not bend
under the weight of the thief, but, rather,
move back and forth along a single axis in
response to the strain caused by the
climbing over. Such fluctuations are
detectable by attaching the SV Lite sensor to
the fence (patent pending).
In fact, in the SV Lite sensor, light passes through two fibers
facing each other and is constrained to move only on one axis,
the same as that in which the fence sways. In the event of
climbing over, swaying causes the misalignment of the fibers,
the light beam completely stops and the LiteFENCE Lite
analyser, which analyses the light signal, recognizes this
variation triggering the alarm.
Simple vibrations resulting from weather conditions or moving vehicles fail to create a swing
capable of completely stopping the light beam. Therefore the system has an excellent resistance
to false alarms and does not require adjusting, new learning phases or software.
Each SV Lite sensor detects oscillations up
to 40m per side (depending on the type of
fence) and protects up to 80m of straight
fence.
17
In the case of fence curves, these
will decrease the oscillations, so
the use of more sensors will be
required.
All LiteFENCE analyzers and SV sensors are
connected as shown in the figure.
The plastic fiber is “woven” along the
fence with an enter and exit process to
prevent an entry attempt via the dismounting
of a panel.

L ITE FENCE WITH SV SENSOR ON RIGID FENCE
Our SECURITY SYSTEM “SV” is patent pending
For rigid fences higher than 115 cm.
The fiber, normal or in a hybrid version
(to power LiteFENCE analysers), is
“woven” along the fence with
an in and out process.
In the SV sensor, light passes through
two fibers facing each other. A
vibration creates a misalignment of
the fibers and a variation of the light
intensity that the LiteFENCE analyser
detects, in turn generating an alarm.
LiteFENCE, compared to LiteFENCE Lite, is able to
detect the partial misalignment of the fiber caused by a
slight vibration and, therefore, detects vibrations up to
10/15m (for fences with a height between 110 and 145
cm) and up to 15/25m (for fences higher than 145cm
per side), protecting up to 30/50m of a straight fence.
In the case of fence curves, these will decrease
the oscillations, so the use of more sensors will be
required.
Excellent tolerance to false alarms is guaranteed by the high frequency of vibrations caused by
weather conditions and moving vehicles on this type of fence, filtered by the inertia of the SV
sensor and LiteFENCE firmware.
The parameters of LiteFENCE are pre-set in the
factory according to the type of fence to protect
(selectable from the menu); in order to conform to
the specific requirements, however, the operator
may adjust the following:
- pre-alarm time (i.e. how long should an
oscillation / vibration last before
triggering the real alarm);
- sensitivity level (high or low);
- activation filter for high frequency
vibrations
All LiteFENCE analysers and SV sensors are connected as shown in the figure.
The fiber, normal or in a hybrid version (to power LiteFENCE analysers), is “woven” along the
fence with an in and out process.

How to connectorize Litewire
FIRST insert the cables into the cable gland of the water tight box, THEN crimp the
connectors.
All the tools required to install a connector can be found in the Litewire connectorization kit.
1- Cut the fiber
with any cutting tool.
2 – Remove the jacket
Remove about 1 cm of jacket.
The jacket of the optical cable has a diameter of 2.2mm.
The fiber has a diameter of 1 mm.
ATTENTION!
Use a standard cable stripper with a hole of 1.0 mm or more, so
you will not damage the fiber.
3 – Crimp the connector
Insert the protection boot.
Insert the FSMA connector onto the cable till the jacket stops
against the connector; the fiber should come 2mm out of the
connector.
Crimp the FSMA connectors on the cable jacket.
ATTENTION!
The connector must be crimped on the cable jacket and must not
be crimped directly on the fiber.
The crimp tool for FSMA connectors must have a hexagonal
crimping diameter of 3mm.
In case you use a Luceat crimp tool (SMAT.001.M22M), use the
0.122” hole.

Level the fiber by polishing the connector on sand paper using
the metal polishing disc.
ATTENTION!
You should make some "8"-shapes with the connector on the sand
paper.
How to connect LiteFENCE
1- Connect the cable Litewire to the device
Insert the Litewire cables through the cable
glands of the water tight box, crimp the
connectors and connect them to the device
(B).
2-Connect the alarm zone
Connect the alarm zone (D) of the alarm
panel; in case the LiteFENCE devices are
placed “in bus”, only the last device will be
connected to the alarm system.
The circuit is normally closed, so the relay is closed.
In case of disconnection, cable break, no power or cable bending, the circuit opens.

3- Connect power supply (e.g.from the battery of
the alarm panel)
Connect the power supply (A)
4- Connect the alarm relay (10A to
240VAC) to the alarm system; you can
place the anti-tampering resistance in
series.
(see previous figure).
The yellow led glows for some seconds and the green
led glows.
From this moment on, the transmission port (Tx)
emits codified light signals which pass through the
plastic optical fiber and arrives at the receiving port
(Rx). The device will continually control the power of
the signal received.
When the device detects a difference in power, due
to cable cut or bendings on the fiber, an alarm will
go off.
The alarm status is shown on the display and with
the glowing red led.
5-Sensitivity adjustment
This device has 4 sensitivity settings you can
select according to your application using the
selector (F).
The intermediate levels can be used to
decrease the system sensitivity in case, for
example, of alarms due to bad weather
conditions or to increase the protection level.
After changing sensitivity, RESET the system using the reset botton(G).
6-a Installation with bolts and clips: Set the analysis interval
Menu→Configuration→
Time window
You can set the analysis interval of the light signal. Range:1s to 60s.
The analyser compares the current attenuation rate to the attenuation rate of 1 to 60 seconds
31
before, and triggers the alarm if the rates are different.
Standard interval: 20 or 60 seconds.
Set a short interval in case you want to reduce unwanted alarms.
6-b. Installation with SV sensor: Set the analysis interval
Menu→Configuration→
Time window
You can set the analysis interval of the light signal. Range: 0.1s to 10s.
If the variation of the light signal last over that interval, there will be an alarm on the NC
contact.
Standard interval: 1 second.
Menu →Configuration →Type of fence
1. Orsogril – lower sensitivity: choose this setting if the fence is type Orsogril, about 2m
high, or if the fence easily transmits the oscillations due to climbing over a long distance
2. Standard – higher sensitivity: choose this if the fence is very low, very rigid or, in general,
if the fence scarcely transmits the oscillations due to climbing over a long distance

Data Analysis
LiteFENCE continually logs the attenuation rates over the cable as well as alarms, recording them
to an SD memory card (E). Date and time are already set.
After one month of operation, you can send the SD memory card in the device to Luceat: we will
give you free support about the most appropriate level of sensitivity that should be selected on
the device. For this reason, there are 2 SD memory cards in the package.
WARNING: the files reporting the logs can only be read by a special software of Luceat. Do not
try to open the SD memory card, as all data could be cancelled.
ALERT “Link is too long”
LiteFENCE indicates when the maximum link length or the maximum attenuation rate has been
reached with the following alert on the display.
ATTENTION!
LINK IS TOO LONG
In this case, the system keeps operating correctly, but we recommend turning down sensitivity in
order to avoid false alarms.
Sensitivity can be adjusted using the selector (F), as shown on page 27.
User's interface
LiteFENCE features a text interface which you can access using the button on the right of the
display.
Functions:
 Up - menu scroll upwards
 Down - menu scroll downwards
 OK - option selection
 ESC - menu exit
The tree structure will be explained in the next section.
Sub-menus:
 Firmware: shows current firmware version
 Language: language can be selected
 Clock: shows date/time, which can also be set
 Status: reports statistical data on how the device is working
 Settings: you can set the analysis interval of the light signal attenuation. The variation of
this parameter detects attenuation variations in different intervals.
Rates range from 1s (default: lowest sensitivity) to 60s (highest sensitivity).
