Solar Systems / PB-IN-75SW



The PB-IN-75SW is an active infra-red photoelectric beam designed specifically for low-current, low-voltage use. This makes them particularly suitable for wireless applications, or difficult-to-cable-to sites without (or unstable) power. An optional Solar panel and Battery Pack (BA-6SL) is available.

They can be used with any make of wireless transmitter (or GSM diallers) to create temporary or permanent secure wireless systems, and can easily be integrated into conventional wired systems at a later date, should mains power become available.

For distances up to 75m (250ft) outdoor / 150m (500ft) indoor.

note: due to UK sunlight levels, the solar-powered (BA-6SL) option may not be suitable for UK use - please contact Takex for advice.


  • Low Current Beam for Solar / Battery powered operation
  • ideal for temporary systems, difficult-to-cable-to areas, or areas without (or unstable) mains power
  • Use with external 6V or 12VDC batteries and any-make wireless transmitters or GSM diallers (not supplied)
  • Capable of running for months on battery-power alone
  • Optional Solar Panel and Battery Pack (BA-6SL) available
