Optex further expands active beam portfolio


Optex has extended its range of Smartline active infrared beams with the SL-TNR series, wireless and hybrid, entry-level outdoor active beam for simple point-to-point applications. The SL-TNR series includes two models: a 30-metre SL-100TNR and 60m SL-200TNR outdoor battery-powered active beam that is ideally suited to protect small perimeters, open areas and driveways. The sensor has been designed to work with both D-sized lithium batteries as well as the universal CR123 batteries, when using optional battery-holders (CRH-5), which are all included in the SL-TNR-CH package.

Four D-sized batteries fitted within the receiver and transmitter will provide up to five years’ operation; 16 universal batteries will last up to one year. The SL-TNR photobeam includes a hybrid option of a PCU-5 power converter, so the receiver can be hardwired and the transmitter battery-powered. It is ideal for situations when the receiver beam is on a building wall close to a main power source and the transmitter is too far from it.

SL-TNR beam sensors also feature a back box that can accommodate most of the available wireless radio transmitters on the market, making it extremely easy to add a wireless perimeter alarm to an existing indoor wireless system. The optional use of a BCU-5 allows for the battery power to be shared between the beams and the wireless transmitter. The SL-100 TNR utilises high-grade aspherical lenses and also has an anti-frost design with IP65 weather protection to improve its durability during tougher weather conditions
