Vanderbilt Industries

Vanderbilt, a global leader in providing state-of-the-art security systems, has announced that its innovative range of MAGIC dual motion detectors has been awarded four prestigious European approvals. The popular range has gained approval in line with the latest editions of the relevant French NF standards, as well as the TO-14 (INCERT) standards that are applicable in Belgium and the Netherlands, the Italian IMQ and the German VdS accreditation.

Considered one of the most important approvals in France, the NF standard confirms that products are suitable for use in applications where compliance is required by end users of security systems and by their insurers. Similarly, INCERT is recognised all over Belgium and the Netherlands, where these markets demand high end products and systems. IMQ is Italy’s most important certification body and a European leader in conformity assessments and laboratory testing for a diverse range of industries. In addition, the MAGIC E-Bus device has also been approved in line with the EN50131 European standards and has received German VdS approval.

Comply with more demanding CE regulations

These approvals come just one year after the MAGIC PDM-IXx12/T and PDM-IXx18/T dual motion detectors were launched in order to offer reliable detection of intruders and high false alarm immunity. Their performance is based on an improved version of Vanderbilt’s pioneering Matchtec algorithm, which combines passive infrared (PIR) and microwave (MW) channels to make incredibly accurate decisions on motion within a detection zone. The detectors are suitable for both home and commercial environments and perform well even under harsh conditions, such as in rooms with rapid and extreme temperature fluctuations that can create false alarms.

Within their future proof design, the intelligent processing routines used in the MAGIC dual motion detectors provide unrivalled reliability. This is because the Matchtec algorithm analyses the relative strength of the PIR and MW signals received from a moving object to make sound decisions. It is even possible to use multiple detectors in close proximity to each other, since the algorithm reduces interference between the MW modules. As a result, they also comply with the new, significantly more demanding CE regulations that came into force in 2014.

Highest standards of design and manufacture

“The response to the MAGIC PDM-IXx12/T and PDM-IXx18/T dual motion detectors since they were launched last year has been phenomenal,” commented Alistair Enser, Global Sales Director at Vanderbilt. “We are therefore delighted that they have now been awarded NF, INCERT, IMQ and VdS approvals. This is clearly testament to the quality of the range, as these designations are only presented to products that have the highest standards of design and manufacture, and which offer best in class levels of performance.”
