LASER BIRD DEFENSE
Programmable Mounted Laser

An Innovative Solution to a Perennial Problem

Overview: Safe, Silent, Effective

For decades, bird incursions at substations have resulted in equipment damage, outages and expensive cleanups due to corrosive bird droppings. The available deterrents – coverups, noisemakers, fake predators, fog machines – only provide temporary, spotty relief. 

Now, TransGard offers a superior alternative: Laser Bird Defense, a high-tech bird deterrent for the electric power industry.

PROGRAMMABLE MOUNTED LASER SYSTEM

This Laser Bird Defense​ system is programmable with multiple patterns and time slots, making it possible for substation managers to establish a variety of repelling patterns at different times of the day, enabling you to target trouble spots selectively.

Each pattern can be assigned to a specific time slot, enabling a variety of bird-repelling patterns at different times of the day. The system also offers up to 2,400 unique waypoints, enabling you to selectively target trouble spots.

How It Works

Laser Bird Defense is a fully automated bird deterrent system that provides continuous performance after a one-time configuration. When operational, birds perceive the system’s approaching laser beam as a physical danger and disperse to seek safety.

Unlike conventional methods, birds will not become accustomed to Laser Bird Fence. They will consider the area unsafe and will not return.

Safety First

Laser Bird Defense offers unique safety features based on years of research and experience in the field.

Password Lock The password prevents unauthorized adjustments to settings.

 

Emergency Stop In an emergency, the Laser Bird Defense can be quickly deactivated by depressing an easily accessible emergency stop button.

FAQs: Answers to Common Questions

Birds perceive the system’s approaching laser beam as a physical danger and disperse to seek safety. In contrast to conventional deterrence methods, birds will not become accustomed to the laser deterrent. They will consider the area as unsafe and will not return.

Yes. It can be used safely as long as the operator complies fully with the provided safety instructions and follows local regulations.

No. The beam is always moving and birds typically disperse before the beam comes into contact.

Laser Bird Defense’s powerful laser output balances out the loss of contrast when the laser beam is spread over a larger surface area.
