All sites have various differences, this is why the HX-40 series has been designed to cater for a variety of site configurations. The bracket can rotate horizontally by 180 degree and can be tilted up or down vertically to adapt the slope of the ground. The detection area can be shortened to 9, 5.5, 4m or modified using the masking seals provided.
If the HX-40AM sensor is sprayed, covered or obstructed while it is armed or disarmed, the active infrared anti-masking will be able to sense the threat when the alarm system is turned on and will send through a notification.
The HX-40RAM can be powered by a variety of universal batteries including CR123, CR2 and 1/2 AA. Its housing can accommodate most wireless radio transmitters available in the market. Overall, a key advantage of a battery-operated model is the flexibility you have in the installation process as the sensor is easy to install in remote or temporary locations.
