The Optex SX-360Z is a commercial ceiling mount passive infra-red (PIR) motion detector featuring a 360 degree 60' diameter coverage area and zoom function.
The SX-360 Series ceiling-mount detector, with its unique zoom function and highly dense, triple-element detection pattern, provides unsurpassed detection performance at any ceiling height up to 16 feet. By simply twisting the units domed lens, the detection pattern can be easily adjusted at any installation height, making it one of the most versatile ceiling detectors on the market. This, combined with its compact design, makes the SX-360 suitable for a variety of applications large or small, residential or commercial.
By using Optex's patented double conductive shielding, the visible light disturbance and RFI can be blocked.
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.
The pattern angle can be variably adjusted. The special lens can be adjusted up and down by rotating the housing cover of the "Zoom" mechanism. The angle adjustment can provide a 360 degree 60 ft. (18 m) diameter detection area at any ceiling height up to 16 ft. (5 m) with high detection performance.
It 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).
