Independently programmable BX outdoor PIR
February 2018, Products, Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection
Optex has launched the new BX Shield (BXS) series sensor in the EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) region, a range of curtain motion sensors that are aimed at protecting windows and the immediate boundaries of a building or site.
Complementing the VX Shield series launched last year, the new Shield concept combines usability with design. The BX Shield series includes four PIRs, two on each side, and the detection range and sensitivity can be adjusted independently for each side of the sensor; the detection area can be easily set up to 24 m in total.
The new BX Shield has four models: two standard, hardwired PIRs (BXS-ST) and two hardwired models with anti-masking (BXS-AM). There are also two battery-powered models, standard (BXS-R), and antimasking (BXS-RAM).
All are equipped with digitally-enhanced signal recognition logic, known as Super Multidimensional Analysis (SMDA). By analysing detection patterns and environmental information, SMDA improves immunity against changes in temperature or moving trees and vegetation, and can distinguish between the cause of nuisance false alarms and genuine intrusions.
For environments where the temperature difference between the human body and the background is very small, the extreme high detection mode increases the PIR sensitivity to prevent any missed alarms.
The BX Shield includes a tamper output that is activated when the face cover or back box is removed. And for ease of installation, the BXS has a walk test-mode to ensure the beam field is set up correctly; it indicates when someone walks through the beam and an alarm is activated. This mode returns to normal operation after three minutes.
