CX-502AM Features

  • Anti-Masking (Patent Pending) - By providing two photoelectric detection beams, operating in different directions, the CX-502AM unlike other Anti-masking PIRs detects masking both directly to the lens surface and also shielding in front of the PIR. Either of these actions will generate a trouble signal.

  • Self-Checking - Activates a trouble signal if CX-502AM's sensing ability is not circuits. The Sensor and Signal Processing Circuit are automatically checked once every 5 hours and also when the alarm system is armed (a compatible control panel is necessary to send an arming signal to the CX-502AM's alarm memory input).

  • Initial Alarm Memory - This function is indicated by a red LED and memorizes which detector was first triggered when several detectors are connected in one alarm loop.

    Standard Features CX-502 Series

  • Selectable Sensitivity (H,M,L) - Offers sensitivity selection to give detection coverage of up to 60 x 60ft. (18 x 18m) Wide Angle or 90 x 7ft. (27 x 2.1m) Long Range.

  • Double Conductive Shielding of Pyro Electric Element (Patent Pending) - Double filtering and conductive metal shielding of the Pyro blocks out visible light and RFI allowing only infrared energy to reach the pyroelectric elements.

  • False Alarm Protection RFI Protection - No alarm from a field strength of 30V/m within the range of 100 to 1,200 MHz.

  • EMI Protection - Can endure 50,000V of electrical interference from lightning or power surges through the signal or power lines.

  • Visible Light Protection - Stable against halogen light at 8ft. (2.4m) or 50,000lx of reflected sun light within the detection area. Exceptionally high level of protection against morning sun reflection or car headlights.

  • Temperature Protection - No alarm in high, low and changing temperatures from -4F to +122F (-20C to +50C)

  • Temperature Compensation - The CX-502 Series employs Temperature Compensation to provide accurate detection by automatically adjusting its sensitivity according to the environmental temperature. It prevents non detection under high temperature conditions where the background temperature is very similar to the human body, while maintaining a high level of false alarm protection.

  • Selectable Pulse Count (1, 2, 3 or 4) (2 pulse count on long range detection) .

  • Multifocused Optics (Patent Listed) - Maintains stable detection even in adverse temperature conditions because tall, vertical zones are created through the multifocused optics. These zones capture an entire human body and detect the smallest temperature contrast against the background.

  • Spherical Lens Design - Conventional interchangeable lenses inevitable meet sensitivity distortion problems when flat long range detection lenses are bent to fit a curbed housing cover. Optex's spherically designed lens obtains sharp detection for both Wide Angle and Long Range using the same lens surface, and is designed to collect IR energy from the detection area, and focus it onto the pyro. By simply rotating the spherical lens, Wide Angle or Long Range patterns can be selected.
