Risco WatchOUT eXtreme 3 distributed by CRK is an external intrusion sensor with 2 microwave and 2 PIR channels that communicates on the RISCO Group System addressable bus and offers 15 metres of coverage at 90 degrees and 23 metres of coverage at 5 degrees, a mounting height between 1 and 2.7 metres and pet immunity against animals with up to 70cm head height with no weight limitation.

The 2 PIR channel detection method delivers Risco’s Digital Correlation Technology, while the 2 microwave channels detection method delivers Risco’s Sway Recognition Technology. The sensor also features active IR anti-mask, detection beyond the hood and an anti-sabotage directional proximity alert using its 2 microwave channels.

There’s a dirty lens alert via a 70mA open collector, operating voltage is 9-16 V DC, alarm contact is NC, 100mA, 24 V DC, while tamper is NC, 100mA, 24 V DC, there’s a mask/fault contact of NC, 100mA, 24 V DC, water and dust resistance is IP65-rated (dust tight and protected against water projected from a nozzle), the operating temperature is -30 to 60C and dimensions are 230 x 121 x 123mm.

WatchOUT eXtreme’s selective event recognition is enabled by 4 detection channels – Sway Recognition Technology, is powered by 2 microwave channels. It recognizes and excludes objects that sway but don’t travel such as bushes, swaying signs, etc. The 2 microwave channels distinguish between microwave pulses of approaching and receding targets, thus measuring the target’s net travel distance. Objects that sway but don’t travel are cancelled out, and only real intrusion threats are detected.

Digital Correlation Technology is powered by the 2 PIR channels and ensures that only targets that cause similar and correlated signals in both PIR channels are potential threats. The 2 independent PIR channels have separate lenses that create a vertically interlacing detection pattern, achieving high false alarm immunity even in unstable outdoor environments. Rapid temperature changes, reflections and pets – which due to their size cannot be in both PIR detection patterns at the same time – are cancelled out.

Meanwhile, Analytic Anti-mask now detects both masking of the lens itself and bags or rags hung over the hood. Proximity Anti-Sabotage issues an alert before the detector is damaged or masked. Unique use of both microwave channels identifies approaching individuals – with directional and proximity analysis.

Installing WatchOUT on the Bus of Risco’s ProSYS system enables remote parameter setting and advanced diagnostics, from the ProSYS keypads or via the upload/ download software. Parameters such as detection sensitivity, MW range, LEDs on/off, etc, can be set remotely.

Remote interrogation of WatchOUT includes power supply voltage input level, PIR and microwave signal and noise levels. Up to 128 WatchOUT detectors can be installed on the Bus of ProSYS Version 7 and above. This advantage simplifies installation and saves on wiring costs, as only 4 wires enable full functionality and serial connection.

WatchOUT eXtreme is now also much easier to install with the hood attached to the cover for easier access to terminal block wiring, snap on swivel and more. With the Anti-Collision feature that helps achieve optimal and cost-effective coverage, WatchOUT can be installed face-to-face or back-to-back. WatchOUT’s eXtreme’s flexible installation is also due to the detector’s variable mounting height – from 1.0m to 2.7m – and to the wide range of available swivels: wall swivel, barrier swivel, conduit bracket and pole adaptor bracket.
