Introducing The Most Innovative Idea In Outdoor Detection. Optex's Advanced "MDP" (Multiple Detection Pattern) Technology

Optex's advanced PIR technology takes a giant leap into the future of outdoor detection. Our patented design allows this sensor to adapt to many different applications and offer reliable detection and unique deterrent capability.

The VX-402 Series has unique technology which makes it absolutely the most stable outdoor sensor which utilizes Passive Infrared Technology. Designed to provide Reliable Performance, Ease of Installation and Multiple Applications for the Dealer and End User, the VX-402 allows your customer the ability to utilize perimeter awareness in their home or business.

Features

The Highest Reliability Available in Outdoor Detection
The patent pending "MDP" Technology eliminates the chance of false alarm caused by moving objects or small animals within the detection area. The VX-402 includes the first Layered Detection Pattern which provides logic for discrimination of objects in the detection area. The upper zone stays parallel to the ground at all times and the lower zone is adjustable from 6.7ft. (2.0m) to 40ft. (12m). Only when both upper and lower zones are activated will the VX-402 generate an alarm.

Limited Detection Range Function
The detection range of the VX-402 can be limited to avoid detecting unwanted objects. By eliminating detection range, false alarms due to unwanted movement (i.e. cars, persons or animals outside the detection area) can be reduced.

Size Judging Function
The VX-402 is designed to discriminate between large and small objects. By utilizing this ability, false alarms due to small animals can be virtually eliminated.

Bright Light Disturbance Immunity with Double Conductive Shielding
The VX-402 is equipped with Patented Double Conductive Shielding Technology. A special conductive filter covers the element window allowing infrared energy to pass through while blocking and grounding out light and RFI sources.

High Durable Housing & Lens

Weather Proof Structure (IP54)

Easy Installation
Installation of the VX-402 has been simplified by the addition of a conduit access in the bottom of the unit. You can conveniently install the VX-402 anywhere since it can be wired either through a conduit access in the bottom of the unit or through a wiring access on the back of the unit. In addition, rubberized grommets increase the resistance of the sensor to the attack of natural elements.

Wiring Convenience
Wiring can enter the sensor from the top or bottom, making installation quick and easy.

Built-In Conduit Entry
A conduit can be installed directly into the bottom of the unit by removing the knockout on the cover.

Area Masking Plate
Unwanted detection area(s) can be easily eliminated by attaching supplied masking plates.

I have 4 units outside for the last 2 years with absolutely no problems and no battery replacement during that time. Very adjustable for distance and and also for eliminating false alarms. Units are somewhat large so location is important so they are not noticeable. (Posted on 9/20/11)
