PB-50FA PB-100FA PB-200FA
up to 165ft outdoor up to 330ft outdoor up to 660ft outdoor

The professional choice in outdoor protection, our Quad beam detectors synchronise 16 beam paths for maximum stability in severe weather conditions, perfect for long range perimeter protection.


  • 4 x synchronised high power beams
  • double modulation for unsurpassed light immunity
  • dynamic auto-gain lock (AGL)
  • ±90° horizontal ± 10° vertical adjustable sensor heads
  • 50,000 lux sunlight immunity
  • IP55 housing
