The Optex HX-40 Series Battery Operated High Mount Ready Outdoor Detector is for mid-level to high-end applications where reliability and performance is a must. This wireless-ready, battery-powered version works with most manufacturer's wireless systems and allows installers to save valuable installation time and labor costs because no trenching, installing conduit, or pulling of wire is required.

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 wireless detector meets these requirements. It is suitable for use in residential, construction, and industrial sites.


Catch Performance
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 installation 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.
Slope Friendliness
Not all outdoor ground is flat like most indoor environments. Steep slopes can cause negative effects on the catch performance feature. The included, adjustable bracket enables the detector to maintain the optimal catch performance.
Save Installation Time & Cost
This detector is a battery operated model and therefore it requires no complicated wiring.
