Perimeter Security Solutions - Dual Technology Sensor
MS15 / MS16 Dual Technology Motion Sensor
MS15 and MS16 outdoor, dual technology motion sensors offer the unique
combination of Doppler Microwave and Passive Infrared technology to
provide volumetric protection for a variety of exterior applications.
With a 15 m x 12 m (50 ft x 40 ft) detection pattern, MS15 and MS16
sensors are designed for reliable detection of upright / walking and
running targets. The MS16 High Security Motion Sensor offers enhanced
detection capability for prone (crawling) targets.
MS15 and MS16 Motion Sensors are configured for And Gate operation; both technology elements must activate simultaneously for
the sensor to alarm. The microwave portion must detect motion of an
intruder, while the passive infrared portion must detect infrared
radiation emitted by an intruder. When both technologies activate at
once, the sensor initiates an alarm condition.
feature two microwave receiving channels with the ability to eliminate
vibration and periodically moving objects as sources of false alarms. A
dual element infrared detector ignores normal temperature variations,
yet is highly responsive to rapid infrared changes created by an
intruder. Proprietary integrated circuit design provides enhanced
digital signal processing (DSP) for both microwave and passive infrared
For optimum performance, it is recommended to use
the MS15 and MS16 motion sensors to protect specific assets or strategic
areas, or as a gap filler in conjunction with an outdoor perimeter
detection system, such as Southwest Microwave's INTREPID fence or buried cable detection systems, microwave links or
transceivers. In general, these sensors are not used as the primary
detection tool along a perimeter fence line other than as part of a
proprietary system with on-site response or video verification.
