360° degree overhead detection
The brand-new Octopus DQ delivers complete overhead detection to any room. The ceiling mount infrared detector offers complete peace of mind that the security system is watching over the protected space. With 360° detection coverage, the Octopus DQ easily and effectively detects from any angle to watch over an entire room or office space.
Digital Quad Zone PIR
The Octopus DQ’s PIR constantly monitors the infrared energy levels around a room and recognises any changes that are caused by the presence of an intruder. The detector will then inform the panel to initiate an alarm.
Attractive, discreet design
The brand-new plastics of the Octopus DQ provide an attractive and discreet detector. Now smaller, slimmer and slicker, the new Octopus DQ delivers superior protection with a stylish and unobtrusive finish.
Blue Wave Technology
Utilising advanced signal processing and precision optics, this technology allows the Octopus DQ to adapt to its environment to safeguard against false alarms and improve its immunity to interference.
- Digital temperature compensation
Digitally adjusts the sensitivity of the detector to maintain its specified range when the background temperature is close to body temperature.
- Adjustable sensitivity
The sensitivity of the detector can be manually adjusted and set to suit the environment where it is installed.
- Independent Floating Thresholds (IFT)
Eliminates electrical environmental disturbances by ensuring alarm thresholds are always kept within predetermined limits.
The Octopus DQ has been developed to provide a stylish and highly secure solution, with the optimum amount of ease and convenience during installation:
- Single Screw
Requires only a single screw to fit the detector to its base, making installation simpler and faster than ever before.
- Clip in PCB
No longer screw the PCB down – instead, click it into place.
- Pulse count (1, 2 & 3)
This is the number of times the Octopus must detect an intruder within a specified time period – simply set to the sensitivity required.
- Selectable EOL resistors
The detector incorporates selectable alarm resistor values of 6K8, 5K6, 4K7 and 1K, in addition to tamper values of 5K6, 4K7, 2K2 and 1K, catering for most control panels.
- Walk test LED
Allows the installer to perform an easy and quick walk-test during the installation process – the LED indicates the presence of an intruder.
- Adjustable mounting height
Mount at varying heights, depending on the installation: 4m for optimum 12m range, with 360° coverage.
Ceiling mount technology
Ceiling mount provides ideal coverage for obscured areas and is less likely to be obscured by furniture or office partitions etc.
The brand-new Octopus DQ has been developed to fit into the same fitting as the previous Octopus EP. This means that any existing Octopus detectors can be quickly and easily swapped for the brand-new detector.
Front & rear tamper protection
This ensures that maximum security is maintained against accidental or malicious tampering of the system, providing reassurance that the system is secure.
