The Optex HX-40 Series High Mount Wired Outdoor Detector with Anti-Masking is suitable for use in mid-level to high-end applications where reliability and performance is a must. The pyro-element developed by Optex provides multiple pattern detection with 94 high-density detection zones and accurate discrimination function for spot temperature changes of moving objects. These features drastically reduce false and missed alarms caused by severe outdoor environmental changes and provide a wide range of applications.
Accurate detection performance is necessary is such environments, and this wired detector meets these requirements. It is suitable for use in residential, construction, and industrial site.
The most important element in reliable outdoor detector is the accuracy to distinguish a human being from a pet. The pyro element on board enables the detector to project a suitable detection pattern, thus allowing for more accurate detection of human beings and less false alarms.
Outdoor environments are full of false alarm factors like vegetation and reflective surfaces. Pre-survey before installing enables you to find the ways to minimize possible false alarms. The detection pattern can easily be adjusted to avoid the possible false alarms by using the included masking strips.
Not all outdoor ground is flat like most indoor environments. Steep slopes can cause negative effects on the catch performance feature. The adjustable included bracket enables the detector to maintain the optimal catch performance.
Active IR Digital Anti-Masking
When an object is placed closed to the lens surface for a period of more than 180 sec, the IR Anti-Masking Circuit will activate and generate a trouble signal.
