Bosch adds long range motion detector to professional series line
Bosch Security Systems Inc. has extended its Professional Series of motion detectors with a new long range TriTech model that combines passive infrared (PIR) with adjustable microwave sensing technologies. The narrow field of view detector features a 100 x 10 feet coverage area and is suited for a range of applications in warehouses, loading docks, retail stores, government facilities, and large offices. Like all Professional Series detectors, the new long range model has been designed for excellent catch performance and immunity from false alarms.
The detector’s custom Fresnel lenses and microwave Doppler radar have been designed and tuned by Bosch to precisely match the defined coverage area. Using Bosch’s proven TriFocus technology, the new detector combines three precision lenses for long, medium and short-range monitoring with two separate passive infrared detector elements. The microwave transceiver automatically adjusts its detection thresholds based on input from the PIR sensors to reduce false alarms. In addition, white light suppression eliminates alarms caused by stray lights, such as passing headlights. These enhanced features ensure that the new curtain detector will meet the demanding needs of long range applications.
The new detector also comes with Bosch’s unique Sensor Data Fusion (SDF) technology that further reduces false alarm rates by enabling intelligent simultaneous processing of signals from up to eight sensors. The algorithm evaluates all data simultaneously to determine whether or not an alarm should be triggered.
The introduction of this long range model augments the portfolio of existing detectors, which includes standard PIR and TriTech detectors, as well as PIR+ and TriTech+ models with anti-mask. All models within the Professional Series implement a variety of innovative technologies to guarantee a cost-effective, failsafe installation. The anti-mask technology in the PIR+ and TriTech+ detectors ensures they cannot be rendered inoperative by covering the lens with paper, card, adhesive tape, or spray without this being detected.
