180° outdoor detectors

March 2019 Perimeter Security, Alarms & Intruder Detection, Products

OPTEX has launched a new series of outdoor PIRs in EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa) that offer 180° detection coverage and a 12 m radius to detect any intrusion around a residential or commercial building.

The WX Infinity series comprises two wired and two wireless models available either as the standard or anti-masking version.

“Outdoor warning technology can help prevent crimes by detecting and reporting intruders before they attempt to break into a building,” says Hiraku Shibuya, section chief at OPTEX global headquarters.

The WXI sensors can provide two, independent 90° 12 m detection areas, one for the left side and one for the right. The detection distance ranges from 2.5 m to 12 m, and the sensitivity and alarm output can be set up independently for these left and right areas. For instance, the left output can trigger for a simple awareness alarm while the right side output prompts the CCTV camera system to set an event index.

A patent-pending area-masking shutter allows a sliding mechanism to quickly mask an area and makes the detection area narrower to avoid obstructions such as swaying vegetation. The set-up procedure has been made easier by including an automatic walk test mode to ensure a quicker and more accurate installation.

The WXI motion sensors benefit from OPTEX’s sensing analytics that filter out noises that are common in outdoor environments, and also distinguishes between humans and small- to medium-sized animals thanks to its Super Multidimensional Analysis (SMDA) logic. The sensors also include temperature compensation and double conductive shielding to ensure best performance in sunny and hot outdoor environments. The selectable pulse count also has the option to enhance the sensor sensitivity.

All WX Infinity models feature a tamper-proof back panel to detect if anyone is attempting to move the sensor from the wall, and the anti-masking models (WXI-AM/ WXI-RAM) will alert when anyone tries to cover the lens to block its view.
