Security Sensors / PB-IN-50HFA / 100HFA / 200HFA SERIES



up to 165ft outdoor up to 330ft outdoor up to 660ft outdoor

The PB-IN-HFA series is the flagship of the TAKEX range of infrared photoelectric beams. By synchronizing 16 beam paths between Transmitter and Receiver, the PB-IN-HFA series offer unrivaled stability in perimeter security. Coupled with channel separation and environmental (anti-fog) circuitry, the PB-IN-HFA series has earned worldwide recognition as the standard our rivals aspire to.


  • 4 x synchronised high power beams
  • 4 selectable beam channels to prevent crosstalk
  • environmental monitoring circuit
  • dynamic auto-gain lock (AGL)
  • vivid internal body stickers aid beam alignment procedure
  • double modulation for unsurpassed light immunity
  • auto-gain control (AGC)
  • 50,000 lux sunlight immunity
  • IP55 housing
