Takex launches latest PIR sensor

The new MX-12FAM: 12m x 180 Degree Dual-zone outdoor PIR sensor has been unveiled by Takex Europe, which also features anti-masking technology.Latest PIR sensor launched by Takex

Following the success of the MS and OMS series sensors, the MX-12FAM features the same dual-zone detection system which, requiring simultaneous detection across horizontal and downward zones, prevents nuisance alarms from small animals and passing vehicles. Takex has also enhanced and added several other features, designed to be ready for the next generation of intruder detection.

A new external appearance with a single colour-matched lens design allows the MX-12FAM to blend discreetly within any environment in which it’s placed. Beneath the cover the optical heads have been streamlined into fixed, but independent 90-degree left and right sides for up to 180-degrees of complete coverage. The unit continues to be fully configurable from 2 to 12m, with durable area masks now stored conveniently within the device which allow the coverage pattern to be customised to meet specific site requirements.

The product includes a sophisticated anti-masking system with near-lens awareness designed to expose any attempt to defeat the sensor by obstruction and initiate a trouble alarm if compromised. Front and back tampers will also detect interference or attempted theft of the sensor.

Also included are dual alarm signal outputs, which allow users to choose between individual outputs for each 90-degree left and right side, or a combined 180-degree output, plus an external trigger for connecting CCTV or ancillary devices.

With a selectable pulse count of one or three, and sensitivity adjustment between 60 to 120%, MX-12FAM is said to be capable of maintaining operational stability in even the most challenging conditions.
