FlipX: new indoor detectors

Issue 5 2022 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Products

Installers and end-users in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) can now take advantage of FlipX, a new range of flexible indoor sensors from OPTEX that features a bespoke pyroelectric sensor for increased performance that adapts to the human shape, and a unique lens that can be ‘flipped’ to provide both narrow and wide detection in a single sensor.

This flipped lens has been designed with flexibility in mind. It effectively gives installers ‘two sensors in one’ to satisfy multiple customer demands. It helps installers manage both their inventory and their cashflow, while giving them the versatility and confidence of arriving on site with the solution they need to match their customer’s needs. By simply rotating the lens through 180°, the sensor can be used to protect narrow or long areas, such as a hallway up to 18 m long or a wide, open area like a living room or retail store (up to 12 m at 85°).

FlipX Standard, the first to be released from the new series, is a Grade 2 sensor that also features digitally enhanced signal recognition logic called Super Multi-Dimensional Analysis (SMDA), which means nuisance alarms caused by changes in light or temperature can be avoided.

Masaya Kida, managing director for OPTEX EMEA, says the FlipX sensor range is born out of cutting-edge technology: “Following significant investment in research, technology and engaging with our customers to gather feedback and key insights into what they look for in indoor security solutions, we are pleased to announce the rollout of our innovative FlipX sensor series.

“With our bespoke lens design and pyro element, the new sensors provide enhanced detection performance and high flexibility. By simply flipping the lens to change the detection shape from narrow to wide, FlipX delivers the power of two sensors in one. The sensor also includes a 180° cover lock and an easily viewable LED light, making installation quick and easy.”

FlipX sensors feature a sleek and compact design, with flexible mounting height options (between 2 and 3 m) meaning they seamlessly blend into the aesthetics of residential environments, as well as buildings with higher ceilings. Thanks to an optional bracket, they can be mounted on the wall or ceiling.

FlipX Standard is available as a PIR model (FLX-S-ST) and, for more challenging indoor environments, as a dual-technology (PIR and microwave) model (FLX-S-DT). The latter is equipped with OPTEX’s robust microwave module, ensuring the durability of the sensor in challenging environments, particularly humid climates, and higher levels of capture performance by tailoring the microwave to the IR detection area.

Following the FlipX Standard launch, OPTEX plans to release other models in the FlipX series in late 2022/early 2023.
