The MegaRed is the world's first dual output external long range passive infrared detector for external operation at ranges of up to 180 metres. Simple cabling and exceptional range make Megared the ideal choice for the protection of large sites.
MegaRed is designed for use with CCTV systems to alert an operator's attention to a specific area or, with the zoned outputs, to activate positioning of a dome or pan and tilt camera system. It activates recording equipment on alarm and can be used to initiate alarms from an external site connected to a central station via video transmission equipment. It is also ideal for the activation of video transmission systems.
Detection is achieved by monitoring changes of far infrared levels between an intruder and the background in the detector's twenty four fields of view
Installation and set-up is made easy with the LRP1020 Walktester, which allows the MegaRed to be aimed accurately and provides the installer with information regarding the stability of the sensor.
MegaRed can operate in total darkness and can therefore be used to simultaneously control lighting in the protected area when used with an LRP 101 Interswitch controller. This allows lighting loads of up to 1200 watts to be operated on alarm and contains an on-board photocell, lights 'on' timer and 220/240 V AC or 110 V AC to 12 V DC power supply to power the detector.
