Optex launches outdoor intrusion sensors in EMEA

by Andy Clutton

Optex has announced that its outdoor detector QX Infinity series is being rolled out to the EMEA region. QXI is a family of compact PIRs providing 12m detection area, up to 120° in width. The sensors are designed to be installed at heights of up to 2.7m, discreetly fitting into any residential or commercial buildings while keeping safe out of the reach from vandals.

The new QX Infinity series comprises four volumetric high-mount wide angle detectors:

Wired models:

– QXI-ST 120°, 12m, wired, standard
– QXI-DT 120°, 12m, wired, dual-technology, with an anti-blocking feature to detect intruders attempting to deliberately mask the detector

Battery-operated (wireless) models:

– QXI-R 120°, 12m, wireless, standard
– QXI-RDT 120°, 12m, wireless, dual-technology

All models are equipped with Quad technology and double layered detection so are designed to only be triggered when both layers are activated, eliminating the detection of small animals. It can also be installed as a low mount PIR detector to create a ‘pet alley’ and further reduce the likelihood of nuisance alarms generated by animals. The QXI series features improved Super Multi-Dimensional Analysis (SMDA) logic so the alarm will not be triggered by changes of weather or vegetation sways, and Double Conductive Shielding which filters out visible light and RFI disturbance.

Simplified installation has been addressed by Optex with an easy to open/close front cover. Other features include an Automatic Walk Test Mode, which automatically starts when the cover is closed and returns to normal mode after three minutes. For extra convenience, power to the wireless models can be shared through a common battery (CR123A) to the transmitter in the base of the device which can easily be swapped out/replaced when the need arises. The sensors will trigger both intruder alarms and CCTV.
