Optex SX-360Z Ceiling Mount PIR Detector with Zoom Control Techspot
Optex SX-360Z Ceiling Mount PIR Detector with Zoom Control unique “zoom” mechanism makes it the most flexible detector on the market. Its 276 dense zones provide a 60 foot (18m) circular detection area with absolutely no dead spots when installed at any height from 8 to 16 feet.
The “zoom” feature on the SX-360Z allows you to adjust the pattern angle of the detector by rotating the housing cover. The angle adjustment can provide a 360° 60 foot diameter detection area at any ceiling height up to 16 feet with high detection performance.
SX-360Z features protection from false alarms caused by both RFI and temperature. Selectable sensitivity allows further fine tuning to meet your application’s needs.
Optex SX-360Z Ceiling Mount PIR Detector Visible light disturbance protection will prevent a false alarm when a 60W halogen lamp is turned on close to the detector. No false alarm is triggered even when a car flashes its headlights at the detector at a distance of 30cm (If a car passes through the detector range, of course, the exhaust heat of the car will trigger the alarm).
Optex SX-360Z Ceiling Mount PIR Detector no false alarm will be triggered by sunlight up to an illumination of 100,000 lux. False alarms are most likely caused when early morning or evening sunlight poors into the room, and enters the field of view of the PIR either directly or by reflection. In such a case, however, the illumination reaches only about 50,000 lux. This prevents false alarm, due to double conductive shielding.
Optex has 2 different detection logics, Quad Zone Logic and Multi-Focus Optics. Each logic creates high vertical density detection zones by original optical technology to prevent false alarms. Normally, a detector uses twin elements to create two detection zones but Optex’s detectors create an extremely high vertical zone density, two or three times the size of that in conventional PIRs. These taller zones capture the entire body mass of a person and enable detection of the smallest temperature contrast between them and the background.
Optex SX-360Z Ceiling Mount PIR Detector offers RFI protection (no alarm against field strength levels exceeding 30V/m for the range of 100 MHz to 1.2 GHz. With temperature protection, this detector offers no alarms in high, low, and changing temperatures from -4 to 122 degree F (-20 to 50 degree C). In addition, it also features a noise reduction circuit, selectable pulse count (1, 2 to 4), and selectable sensitivity levels (high, medium, or low).
