What type of detectors do TAKEX make?
We specialise in Passive Infrared (PIR), Active Infrared (AIR), Microwave (MW), Ultraviolet (UV) and Acoustic (Glass Break) detectors.
Which should I choose?
If it’s for internal use, in domestic or office environments the most popular choice would be PIR’s which offer a multitude of coverage options and are relatively cost effective. If it’s for much larger internal coverage such as warehouses, car parks and shopping centres, more specialist PIR’s or Active Beams are usually used.
For external use there are specialised PIR’s designed to cope with more difficult environments and situations which are usually used in closer proximity of the buildings being protected, and then beams are more commonly used for the perimeter due to their longer range and more definitive coverage.
If you aren’t sure, either read our guides of the different technologies or contact us for more specific advice.
Where can I buy them?
We sell through trusted distribution partners around the world, partners that have trained technical departments and should be able to offer local advice, if you contact us here we can point you in the right direction.
