WXS 165

Product Details

Part of the Shield family, the WXS series is OPTEX's latest 180° outdoor intrusion detection sensors with flexible range detection and settings, as well as a selectable low (0.8 - 1.2m) or high mount (2m) option and self-learning IR digital anti-masking. Ideal as approach or flat roof protection for residential and commercial premises, the sensor is equipped with the Shield advanced features including double conductive shielding to avoid false alarms triggered by bright sunlight or RFI, and automatic walk test. WXS-DAM is the hard-wired model with dual-technology (PIR/Microwave).

Dual-technology and triple layer detection
The WXS series' integrated PIR and Microwave algorithm provides the ultimate stability in detection performance. Ideal for applications where strong sunlight hits the land or car headlights shine directly into the sensor. The panoramic triple layer detection provides greater reliability as alarm is only triggered when the three layers of detection detect motion.

Flexible mounting height
The WXS outdoor intrusion sensors can be installed at a low mount providing a flexible detection area from 2.5 to 12m. It can also be mounted at 2.0m high, creating a volumetric detection area with 9m detection range. This option can be effective to avoid vandalism or masking of lens.

Two independent left / right detection areas
In low mount configuration, the WXS intrusion detection sensors feature two completely independent 90 degrees detection areas (left and right), that can be set at different detection distance, sensitivity and trigger independent alarm outputs which is very useful for PTZ activation.

Detection analysis and pet tolerance
The WX Shield outdoor intruder sensors are designed to be pet and animal tolerant which means it will not trigger if cats, dogs, birds are in the detection area making it very stable. Additionally they feature OPTEX Super Multi-dimensional Analyis (SMDA) which can rule out environmental changes such as vegetation sway, shadow etc making the sensor very reliable.

Please note the WXS-DAM sensor is only available with the following Microwave frequency 10.525GHz (X5 version)

Suitable for Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland
