The VX-402 Wired Multi Stabilized Outdoor Detector from Optex is a 40 x 40' hardwired detector that provides the necessary stability and reliability for an outdoor PIR sensor. False alarms from animals as well as environmental nuisances are greatly reduced with its design and dual PIR detectors. The detector's dual PIR's create 2 detection areas (upper and lower) that must be simultaneously compromised in order to go into alarm. In addition, the detection length can be limited to avoid unwanted detection. By limiting the detection range, false alarms due to unwanted movement such as cars, persons, or animals outside the protected area can be eliminated.

Limited Detection Range Function
By limiting the detection range, false alarms due to unwanted movement, for instance, cars, people, or animals outside the protected area can be reduced.
Size Judging Function
The detector is designed to discriminate between large and small animals, which virtually eliminates false alarms due to them.
Bright Light Disturbance Immunity
The detector is equipped with Double Conductive Shielding. It utilizes a special conductive filter to cover the element window, allowing infrared energy to pass through, while blocking and grounding out unwanted light and RFI sources. This shielding helps to reduce false alarms caused by car headlights, reflected sunlight, and other ambient light sources.
Advanced Temperature Compensation
At high ambient temperatures, the difference between the background temperature and a human body is reduced. In such cases, an ordinary PIR might fail to accurately detect the human body. The VX-402 uses advanced temperature compensation to automatically increase the detector's sensitivity under high temperature conditions, especially where the background temperature ranges from 95 to 98.6°F (35 to 37°C), close to that of the human body.
Multiple Detectors for Improved Functionality
For advanced functionality and reliability without the need for a control panel, the VX-402 detector can be connected to another detector, for example, PIR, photobeam, or magnetic contact. Various configurations are possible.
Detection Area Extension Function
Wiring two VX-402 series sensors together and selecting the OR mode enables the detection pattern to be effectively doubled. The detection area can be easily extended to using its slave units.
Directional Detection Function
By selecting the AND mode and programming the sequence of sensor operation (using DIP switch programming), the detector can sense direction and will only be activated if motion is in a specified direction. The detector can distinguish movement direction by using slave units. This function increases the operational reliability and allows for use in new applications (Directional Security).
Improved False Alarm Protection for Stable Reliability
Utilizes Multiple Detection Pattern Technology, wherein 2 double-layered detection patterns (upper and lower) both have to be activated to generate an alarm condition. This reduces false alarms, particularly those caused by temperature changes, light reflection, and small animals.
Intruder Prevention - An alarm is activated when an intruder enters the property or prohibited area.
Warning Alert - A safety warning is activated. For example, when children go near a dangerous area such as a swimming pool.
Shop Entrance - A welcome message is given when customers enter a premises.
Additional Features
This versatile, pet tolerant outdoor PIR conforms to EMC Directive 89/336 ECC and includes a sensitivity selection switch, adjustable detection zone function (15 per notch), selectable N.C. or N.O. alarm output, and a photocell for day and night operation.
