Bosch Professional Series intrusion sensors
BOSCH Security Systems has expanded its line of
Professional Series intrusion detectors with two new models that feature the
Mantis multi-point anti-mask technology with integrated spray detection. This
new technology utilizes patented prism lenses and active infrared detection to
protect against all known forms of attack, providing superior protection
The new ISC-PPR1-WA16x and ISC-PDL1-WA18x detectors are
compliant with the latest worldwide regulatory standards for detection of
objects covering or placed in front of the detector. These units are sensitive
to various materials regardless of texture or color, including fabric, paper,
metal, plastic, tape and spray.
The new models join the ISC-PPR1-W16 and ISC-PDL1-W18
Professional Series Intrusion Detectors, which have been used in a variety of
commercial and retail applications for nearly two years. The complete line of
Professional Series Intrusion Detectors offer Bosch’s Sensor Data Fusion
technology, which interactively processes data from up to five different
sensors. By comparing sensor data, the detectors virtually eliminate false
alarms and improve catch performance over traditional motion detectors by 35
With Bosch’s Tri-Focus Optics technology, three custom
engineered lenses provide two times the signal to noise ratio, which produces
sharper and brighter images that make it easier for the Professional Series
detectors to distinguish intruders from false alarm sources.
Installation time for the detectors is also reduced up to
25 per cent over traditional detectors by a host of features, including a
built-in level, three optional mounting brackets and a flexible mounting height
that allows the detectors to be positioned from seven to 10 feet without
adjustment. A self-locking, two piece enclosure also slides easily into place,
diminishing mounting time for the detectors to mere seconds.
A sealed optic chamber provides immunity to drafts and
insects, eliminates accidental damage, and improves the durability and
reliability of the Professional Series line of detectors. A cover and wall
tamper switch provides an additional level of protection from sabotage. Solid
state relays send silent alarm output signals and are unaffected by an external
magnet for a high level of security and reliability. The solid state relay also
uses less current than a mechanical relay, providing longer standby capacity
during a power loss.
The housings are white, high impact ABS, there’s a tiny
spirit level moulded into the rear case and you also get a quick release lock
nut. The vertically aligned individual pyro sensors share 3 fresnel lenses.
The sensor’s front case engages with the terminal block
by sliding the sensor upwards and clicking it into position. The front case is
self locking and requires a terminal sized screwdriver to release the two parts
by giving the spring loaded lock nut a quarter turn anti-clockwise.
It’s possible to tune the sensor using on/off dip
switches to control target distance, mounting height, and remote LED control,
while the dual tech model with microwave sensor has a range potentiometer and
anti masking features to program.
