The VX-402R Multi Stabilized Wireless Outdoor Detector from Optex is a 40 x 40' wireless-ready, outdoor detector that provides the necessary stability and reliability for an outdoor PIR sensor. This battery-powered detector includes a backbox that accepts most manufacturer's wireless transmitters and allows installers to save valuable installation time and labor costs because no trenching, installing conduit, or pulling wire is required. False alarms from animals as well as environmental nuisances are greatly reduced with its design and dual PIR detectors. The VX-402R's dual PIR's create two 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, people, or animals outside the protected area can be eliminated.
The battery-operated detector is compatible with all existing wireless technology, thereby allowing for low cost simple outdoor installations, while providing high detection capability.
Note: Battery not included
Flexible 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 differentiate between large and small animals. By utilizing this size judgment function, it virtually eliminates false alarms due to small animals.
Battery Saving Circuit
The alarm circuit is not activated until there is a 5 to 120 seconds period of inactivity in the pattern area.
Operates on a Wide Range of Power
3 to 9 V alkaline or lithium battery.
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 helps to reduce false alarms caused by car headlights and reflected sunlight in particular.
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-402R 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-402R 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-402R series sensors together and selecting the OR mode enables the detection pattern to be effectively doubled.
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.
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.
This versatile, pet tolerant outdoor PIR includes a sensitivity selection switch, selectable N.C. or N.O. alarm output, and a photocell for day and night operation. It also features Form C alarm and tamper output, a low current draw, a back box for a wireless transmitter, and compatibility with numerous wireless transmitters. It is completely weatherized for direct exposure to outdoor elements and operates on a wide range of power. It offers reliable short-range detection for external areas. It conforms to EMC Directive 89/336 ECC.
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.
