Optex AX-70TN overview

  • 1Description

The AX-70TN Indoor / Outdoor Wired Short-Range Photoelectric Detector from Optex is compact in design with an IP65-compliant, highly durable structure. Rubber packing is used for all conceivable points where water, dust, or bugs may penetrate, such as wiring holes, wire ports, and the outer chassis. Preventing these factors helps deliver performance with higher reliability in severe outdoor environmental conditions. In addition, the length between the upper and lower optics and the width of the optics are ideally engineered to produce an intelligent detection pattern, which reduces false alarms by detecting only human intruders.

IP65 Structure with High Sealing Rubber Packing
Rubber packing is used for all conceivable points where water or dust may penetrate, such as wiring holes, wire ports, and the outer chassis. Prevention from dust, bugs, and water delivers performance with higher reliability against false alarms and breakdowns.
Lightning & Surge Protection
An improved electro-magnetic interference surge absorber and high surge resistive relay have been installed to protect from lightning surges and maintain stable operation.
Anti-Frost Hood Cover
A hood is installed to prevent frost formation on the lower beams. It also makes the maintenance easy because the surface of cover is flat.
Easy Angle Adjustment
It allows the installer to finely adjust the beam with ease.
High Grade Spherical Lens
The high grade spherical lens creates sharply defined and precise infrared beams compared to ordinary Fresnel lenses.
99% Beam Blocking Stability
Enables stable operation with as much as 99% loss of beam energy caused by heavy rain, dust storms, fog, or snow.
A.G.C. (Automatic Gain Control) Circuit
A.G.C. circuit continually monitors for gradual changes in the signal's strength caused by changing weather conditions. It adjusts the sensitivity accordingly to maintain a proper signal level for the current environmental conditions.
Adjustable Beam Interruption Period
The beam interruption time can be adjusted to fit any application. For example, when protecting a wall or fence, a longer interruption time will catch intruders.
Other Features
High-performance waterproof structure
Horizontal dial alignment for user friendliness
Adjustable beam interruption period
Tamper function

    Optex AX-70TN reviews

    AX-70TN Wired Short-Range Photoelectric Detector (70 ft) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this detector I purchased the AX-70TN detector to replace an old AX-70T unit installed more than 25 years ago as part of a home security system but had stopped functioning due to age and exposure to our high desert environment. I was very pleased with the B&H free expedited shipping offer - the units actually arrived two days before the promise date. The receiver and transmitter were well-packaged and arrived in perfect condition. Instructions were clear and I had no trouble installing and calibrating the new sensors, which seem to be working perfectly. I noticed several improvements from the previous model, but they were still fully interchangeable. My driveway monitor system is now functional again, and I am very pleased with both the delivery service of B&H and the performance of the detector.
