The Optex KX-08 Wired Ceiling Mount Passive Infrared Indoor Detector with Pet Immunity combines the ease of installation and good looks of a ceiling-mounted sensor with the reliability of Optex Quad-Zone Logic. Using this logic, the KX-08 Detector has been designed to give high false alarm protection with tolerance to spot temperature changes from curtains or small- to medium-sized animals.
The Optical Quad Technology utilizes taller detection zones divided into upper and lower areas. It detects IR energy changes in both areas and then couples them for extremely accurate detections. The KX-08 detector provides very high reliability, ease of installation, and blends perfectly in the room with its small ceiling mount design. This detector is suitable for residential installation.
Quad Zone Logic
The Quad Zone Logic provides multi segmented detection zones over the detection area. An alarm signal is created by the cumulated total IR energy of each zone. It is designed so that a human-sized target will normally fill 4 to 8 zones, and this will cause an alarm to be generated. Any smaller temperature change (i.e., small to medium size pets, rodents, or moving curtains) only activates 1 or 2 zones at the same time creating a much weaker detection signal. Pet immunity applies to animals up to 16" (0 to 40.6cm) in height. These signals are further analyzed by the ECO Chip and signal processing circuit for accurate detection of human beings and avoidance of most small animals.
Spherical Lens Inside
Obtains an accurate focal length for each detection zone and maximizes the performance of Quad Zone Logic.
Temperature Compensation Logic
ECO Chip includes temperature compensation circuit. It controls sensitivity to improve stability against changes in environmental conditions.
