OPTEX confirms release of New FlipX Advanced sensors

Following the successful EMEA roll out of its FlipX Standard indoor sensors in September, OPTEX has announced the launch of its new Grade 3 FlipX Advanced series.

OPTEX FlipX sensors feature a bespoke pyroelectric sensor for increased performance that adapts to the human shape and a unique lens that can be ‘flipped’ to provide both wide and narrow detection in a single sensor.

By rotating the lens through 180°, the sensor can be used to protect narrow or long areas such as a corridor or warehouse aisles up to 24m, or a wide, open area like a lobby or a high value retail store to 15m at 85°.

In addition, to provide a higher level of security, the Advanced models feature intelligent IR-Antimasking, which protects both the PIR and microwave sensors, generating an alert if they are covered.

It’s also equipped with additional algorithms to ensure stable detection and to reduce ‘false’ alarms.

Double conductive shielding means nuisance alarms caused by changes of light, temperature or Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) can be avoided. FlipX Advanced sensors also feature a ‘super high PIR sensitivity’ mode, which when set, enables the sensors to maintain stable and highly reliable detection even when the temperature difference between the human and the environment is very small; this ensures greater catch performance for high-security, high-risk sites where missed alarms are unacceptable.

Following the launch, OPTEX plans to release further models in the FlipX series in early 2023.
