New Optex sensor

January 2010 Products & Solutions

Elvey Security Technologies has announced the availability of the Optex OP-08C passive infrared door sensor. The OP-08C is ideal for light commercial applications. Its advanced circuitry keeps false activations to a minimum, despite challenging conditions such as bright sunlight, wind, rain, snow and radio frequency noise, all of which are well-known false alarm triggers.

Another feature is its detection pattern, which consists of 10 individual zones. As a result, high sensitivity is guaranteed, even for large areas. To this end, installers interested in increasing the size of the standard detection area can do so simply by rotating the spherical lens on the unit, which will increase the collective footprint of the 10 individual detection zones.

In addition, through the use of area masking seals, the detection pattern’s size and shape can be further customised to trigger only the zones that will activate the door.
