This means they are ideal for large, indoor applications such as distribution centres, warehouses and industrial units, where lighting and climatic conditions are consistent.
The PIRs used advanced, black mirror optics to maximise detection range and accuracy. The mirrors reflect an intruder’s body heat onto quad inline pyro-sensors, only raising an alarm if all the sensors activate. This quadruple detection trigger dramatically reduces false alarms and makes perimeter and boundary detection precise.
“Luminite’sGenesis 2 PIRs can accurately detect intruders at over 60m, even when facing directly into the sun and regardless of target speed,” explains Graham Creek, MD at Luminite. “However, in more controlled settings, the detection range can easily be increased to up to 100m by simple adjustment. By using our specialist mounting bracket, which allows two PIR detectors to be placed back to back, PIRs can look both ways to offer an accurate “curtain” detection span of up to a huge 200m.”
The Genesis 2 is a professional, high-quality, well-engineered, PIR detector. The black mirrors include a unique adaptive zoom focal length feature, which means the PIRs sense evenly over the entire detection range. They can distinguish between humans and animals for outdoor applications and also filter out unwanted light, such as glare from car headlights and the white light elements in reflected sun light.
The PIRs are available in wired or wireless variants, for installation flexibility. The wireless solution uses high-end radio communications to enable up to 64 PIRs within each Genesis 2 system to communicate with a Masthead transceiver. Transmission distances are up to 1km; ideal for use in large industrial and distribution applications.
The Genesis 2 has front access for easy, on-site fitting and adjustment. It can even be set up to look directly down or along a wall. The case is IP 65 rated for external use and made from tough, weather-proof ABS. Battery life is up to 2 years using standard Alkaline cells, depending on settings and location. Lithium cells extend battery life further. The Genesis 2 can also take power from a 12v PSU, instead of batteries, if preferred.
