The KX15DT features Dual element pyro-electric sensor with X-band DRO based microwave both of which need to be triggered to set off the Alarm, this reduces the risk of false alarms.
With Blue Wave Technology (BWT) and digital temperature compensation the detector will adjust its sensitivity, further enhancing the detectors immunity to false alarms and environmental disturbance.
15m Volumetric detector
15m Volumetric detection coverage. Ideal for protection of rooms and offices in commercial environments.
Selectable EOL resistors
The detector incorporates selectable alarm resistor values of 6K8, 5K6, 4K7 &1K & tamper values of 5K6, 4K7, 2K2 and 1K catering for most control panels on the market.
‘AND’ mode operates as a standard dual technology detector, where both technologies need to active to cause the alarm. ‘OR’ mode will switch the sensors activation of the alarm input to be either the PIR ‘OR’ Microwave. This can be useful in environments where there is a risk of PIR detection being blocked.
Active self test
If there is no activation after a 5 hour period it will actually self test both the PIR and microwave.
Blue Wave Technology (BWT)
This technology further enhances the detector’s immunity to infra-red noise in the environment. BWT comprises of some key components:
The new 3D optics system enables perfect focusing of the infra-red signal onto the pyro-electric sensor. This allows BWT to clearly identify the positive and negative signal edges.
Digital temperature compensation digitally adjusts the detectors sensitivity to ensure performance is maintained
Powerful software embedded into a microprocessor is used to process the received information from the pyro-electric sensor. The result of this combination is lower infra-red signal noise amplification and therefore better immunity.
Auto Sensitivity Feature
Depending on the environment condition, the detector will automatically adjust the sensitivity.
Triple LED indication
Microwave – orange, PIR – green, alarm – blue
Microwave Frequencies Bands
3 different frequency bands to avoid interference between detectors are installed in the same room.
