expands on its industry leading outdoor wireless intrusion line by
adding the SL-350QFR, a 350 ft. battery-powered photoelectric detector
requiring no trenching or wiring. Because of this, Integrators
and Dealers can offer a significant cost saving alternative to
traditional hardwired systems, while End Users will benifit from less
downtime to business operations during install. The
SL-350QFR also includes a Quad beam detection pattern and a
multifunctional back box that works with most manufacturers wireless
systems. For power, the SL-350QFR comes with four batteries per set,
with the option of expanding to eight for up to 10 years of battery
and missed alarms caused by fog and other factors can be reduced if
optimal alignment is achieved during installation. The SL-350QFR‘s new
Sniper Viewfinder telescope lens allows a high level of visibility and
magnification even at the 350 ft. maximum installation distance. Because
of this, the Sniper Viewfinder increases the probability of optimal
alignment. In addition, the optional BCU-4 Automatic Beam Alignment Tool
allows one installer to both align the beams at maximum installation
distance and achieve perfect alignment by automatically aligning the
beams. This allows for substantial cost savings by reducing labor and
all but eliminates false alarms caused by misalignment.
Chino, California, July 26th, 2012— Optex
expands on its industry leading outdoor battery powered intrusion line
by adding the SL-350QFR, a 350 ft. battery-powered photoelectric
detector requiring no trenching or wiring. “Even with the success of our
100 ft. and 200 ft. battery-powered beams, there were still larger
applications where too many beams sets would be required. With the
SL-350QFR, we will be able to not only offer a more cost-effective
solution for these larger sites, but also offer additional features that
our customers asked for, such as quad beam detection and extended
battery life of up to 10 years,” says Scott Simmons, Vice President of
The SL-350QFR is available in a wireless-ready version that works
with most manufacturers wireless systems and an iSeries SL-350QFRi
version that includes an Inovonics wireless EN1941 transmitter
pre-installed. Both versions come with four batteries per set, with the
option of expanding to eight for up to 10 years of battery life.
In addition, the SL-350QFR is compatible with the AX-TW200 line of
beam towers for a clean, concealed, wireless mounting option. “Our sales
staff and technical team will work closely with the integrator and
installer to find the best mounting option and layout on their job site.
When a site plan is provided, we’ll custom build the towers and
pre-install the SL-350QFR beams in them based on the job site
specifications, all at no charge,” states Frank Chavez, Lead Technician.
“We'll even ship them directly to the job site, labeled for position
and ready to be installed.”Benefits and features of the new 350ft. SL-350QFR battery-powered Photoelectric Detectors Include:
• No trenching or wiring required allows for a quicker and less
expensive install. End user will experience less downtime to business
• SL-350QFR is compatible with the majority of wireless systems on the market.
• iSeries SL-350QFRi version includes Inovonics transmitter pre-installed allowing for a quicker set-up time on job site.
• New long distance viewfinder adds to ease of installation and
insures optimal beam performance by increasing visibility during the
• Four Selectable beam frequencies for stacking applications when a higher level of security is required
The flexibility and durability of the SL-350QFR series make it well
suited for substations, oil and gas facilities, transportation,
correctional facilities, storage and impound yards, critical
infrastructures, industrial complexes and solar fields.
