The Optex DX-60 is an indoor, anti-masking PIR/microwave motion detector featuring a 60x60 ft. detection area, or curtain.
Integrating PIR and microwave technology into attractive, easy-to-install units, the DX-60 provides stable and reliable detection in the most hostile of environments, where simple PIR detectors struggle to function. The PIR element incorporates Quad Zone Logic to detect the smallest temperature contrast against the background temperature, enabling it to discriminate between humans and other sources of infra-red (IR) radiation. Additionally, the microwave detector incorporates Microwave Area Shaping technology to prevent the unwanted detection of movement outside the coverage area.
Optex has created a breakthrough in Microwave Detection. This DX series reduces one of the biggest weak points of microwave detection, that is the penetration of walls and unwanted detection of movement outside the coverage area. In addition, the detection area has uniform sensitivity which minimizes false activation's caused by spot movement in the detection area, e.g. small animals.
By utilizing Optex Advanced Optical Technology, the DX-40/60 create evenly distributed sensitivity throughout the detection area. Accurate focus creates even sensitivity and high resistance to spot temperature changes. Other detectors may have inconsistent detection creating hot spots (false alarm can occur) and dead spots (no detection). In addition, the Spherical Lens contributes to a superior aesthetic appearance which end users will appreciate.
The Microwave Area can be easily shaped to fit the desired area and have even sensitivity. In addition, Quad Zone Logic in the PIR provides high tolerance to spot temperature changes and movements caused by small animals, heating vents, moving curtains and vibrations caused by big machinery.
Passive Infra-red does not detect through walls and is never affected by movement beyond these boundaries.
Microwave Area Shaping allows for simple two step adjustment. By making minor adjustments to the Long or Short Range Selector and the Low, Medium, High Sensitivity Volume, the microwave can be shaped to match room size. This technology will not only reduce installation hassle but will reduce false alarms.
