Outdoor perimeter protection is one of the most effective ways for users to feel safe and enjoy complete peace of mind; knowing that they will be alerted to the presence of any potential intruders, before a break-in can be attempted. This would be a much more efficient and secure solution.
A straightforward idea, but one that provides challenges to maintaining accurate and reliable performance. This includes fluctuating temperatures, swaying trees and plants, pets, wildlife and even glare from UV radiation. All these can cause false alarms.
The XD range of outdoor detectors utilise technologies specifically developed by Pyronix, to overcome these challenges and deliver a robust, reliable outdoor solution; providing volumetric or curtain detection coverage between 10m to 12m, with both wireless and wired high and low-mount options. This is along with flexible fitting brackets for every installation preference.
Consisting of two independent Passive Infrared (PIR) sensors and one microwave sensor, the Tri-Technology (TT) of the XD range utilises Tri-Signal Detection Logic to identify the presence of an intruder. This provides stable outdoor detection, as all three sensors must be sequentially activated in quick succession to create an alarm. This enhances the detector’s immunity to environmental disturbances and limits the risk of false alarms.
In terms of swaying trees and plants, the range utilises Anti-Sway Analytics; an advanced digital filter that distinguishes between the movements of trees and plants from that of an intruder, to maintain optimum performance outdoors. The detectors also boast IP55 weatherproof rating, with thick polycarbonate plastics and fully sealed optics for robust and reliable performance in varying weather conditions.
The wired variants feature Anti-Interference Technology to prevent intruders from bypassing detection. This consists of anti-masking, which protects against attempts to mask any of the three sensors with various materials. This also consists of anti-blocking, which prevents the system from being armed if there is anything blocking the vision of any of the sensors.
The wireless variants benefit from Pyronix award-winning two-way wireless technology, with up to 1.6km long range signalling in open space. Where wiring would be challenging and impractical, the high-sensitivity antenna of the XD ensures that the signals being transmitted and received are as strong as possible; utilising Gaussian Frequency Modulation (GFM) to spread the signal, while reducing unwanted noise and harmonics, enables the wireless options to meet stringent European, ETSI and other worldwide standards.
The low-mount XDL12TT-AM and XDL12TT-WE both feature Dual-Vision Pet Immune, with both PIRs having a dedicated volumetric field of view. The top PIR detects outwards and up, with the bottom PIR detecting outwards and down, without either crossing the central horizontal plane between them. This non-overlapping setup alongside Tri-Signal Detection Logic, delivers highly secure sequential detection and increases its pet immune tolerance.
This is just a glimpse of the technology the XD range utilises. Whatever the requirement, the XD range of outdoor detectors deliver the optimum security solution.
