TAKEX EUROPE LTD, a Japanese manufacturer of active and passive infrared perimeter intruder detection sensors, has announced the launch of a new 12m x 180 degree dual-zone outdoor PIR sensor with anti-masking technology.

Following the success of the MS and OMS series sensors, the newly developed MX-12FAM features the same dual-zone detection system which, requiring simultaneous detection across horizontal and downward zones, prevents nuisance alarms from small animals and passing vehicles. Beyond this core detection principle, TAKEX has added and tuned a host of features and technologies ready for the next generation of intruder detection.

A new external appearance with a single colour-matched lens design allows MX-12FAM to blend discreetly within any environment in which it’s placed. Beneath the cover the optical heads have been streamlined into fixed, but independent 90-degree left and right sides for up to 180-degrees of complete coverage; still fully configurable from 2m to 12m, with durable area masks now stored conveniently within the device which allow the coverage pattern to be customised to meet specific site requirements.

MX-12FAM includes a sophisticated anti-masking system with near-lens awareness designed to expose any attempt to defeat the sensor by obstruction and initiate a trouble alarm if compromised. Front and back tampers can detect interference or attempted theft of the sensor any time of the night or day for true peace of mind protection, all the time.

Also included are dual alarm signal outputs, which allow you to choose between individual outputs for each 90-degree left and right side, or a combined 180-degree output plus an external trigger for connecting CCTV or ancillary devices.

With a selectable pulse count of one or three and sensitivity adjustment between 60 to 120%, MX-12FAM is capable of maintaining operational stability in even the most challenging conditions.

Additional details including pricing will be announced in local markets at the time of availability.
