Bosch enhances top-selling Blue Line detectors

Blue Line Gen 2 Motion detectors include the passive infrared (PIR), the Quad PIR detectors and the TriTech detectors that combine PIR and microwave technologies for more advanced analysis. All models use an interchangeable mounting base, enabling easy upgrades to more advanced detection technology in areas prone to false alarms. In addition, pet-friendly models can be set to “No Pet” to allow customers to use the same product in multiple applications, reducing inventory for security dealers. For easy installation, the self-locking, two piece enclosure, integrated biaxial bubble level and removable terminal strip in the base reduce mounting time to mere seconds. The commercial grade terminal strip is designed to prevent incorrect wiring and eliminate future service calls. A flexible mounting height allows the detectors to be positioned from2.3 to 2.7 meters (seven to nine feet) without adjustment, assuring no coverage gaps up to twelve meters (40 feet) away from the detector. Pet-friendly Selectable model available – optimize installation for pet (20 kg [45 lb]) and non-pet applications Dynamic Temperature Compensation – superior catch performance in any environment Wall to Wall Coverage – superior catch performance Flexible Mounting Height, No Adjustments – reduce installation time and false alarms, improve catch performance Self-locking Enclosure with Integrated Bubble Level – reduce installation time See album with captions

New detector range provides performance and flexibility to put installers in control
New detector range provides performance and flexibility to put installers in control

A new generation of aesthetically-designed, high technology intrusion detectors – Blue Line – has been launched by Bosch Security Systems to provide the optimum performance and maximum flexibility for installers working in virtually any residential/light commercial environment.The range – designed with a distinctive horizontal blue crescent from which it derives its name – comprises just four models and a choice of camera modules to drastically reduce an installer’s inventory whilst still giving him the technology he needs to provide a complete solution.  The detectors cover all ranges up to 11m (35ft) without adjustments and provide user-selectable, lock-down zones.Particularly innovative is an Advanced First Step Processing (FSP) feature common to all four models that provides almost instantaneous response to human targets, whilst eliminating false alarms created by other sources.  With FSP, sensitivity is automatically adjusted rather than an installer having to select the sensitivity level for each application.“When an installer encounters the unexpected on site, the speciality detector he needs is often back at the warehouse,” says Jeremy Hockham, UK Managing Director of Bosch Security Systems.  “With Blue Line, however, we have greatly simplified and rationalised our product range to just four detectors and two camera modules to cover almost every eventuality an installer may face.  This means specification is easier, time is maximised, and money not wasted on product sitting in the warehouse, gathering dust.”The Blue Line detectors feature an innovative, easy-to-mount, two-piece design.  All electronics and a sealed optical chamber (providing draft and insect immunity) are incorporated into the front cover that attaches to the blank base.   No adjustment is required for mounting heights of 2.25m to 2.74m (7.5ft to 9ft).  A convenient plug-in terminal strip makes for easier access to the wire terminals, whilst a clever screw-less cover lock also further simplifies installation.The four models in the range include: the standard Blue Line P1 Passive Infrared Detector (PIR); the Blue Line P1-P Pet Friendly PIR with a bespoke technology that distinguishes signals caused by humans from those by family pets; the Blue Line Q1 Quad PIR that incorporates two individual detectors, both of which must trigger to cause an alarm; and the Blue Line D1-P TriTech PIR/Microwave detector that combines PIR and microwave detection technology with proprietary signal processing algorithms to differentiate disturbances in the detector field.The two camera modules comprise the Blue Line A1-CM Monochrome Camera Module, a CCD camera device that can continuously operate or be set for either 15 seconds or 90 seconds after an alarm, and the Blue Line A1-CC Colour Camera Module that features 330 TV lines of horizontal resolution and 3.4-lx light sensitivity.  Either module can be attached to any of the four Blue Line detectors.The launch of Blue Line follows the release last month of the Abacus Evolution Alarm Panel range that was similarly designed to reduce inventory, ease specification and installation, and provide maximum flexibility for the installer.

Bosch presents its Professional Series Intruder Detectors

While other motion detectors merely react to input from one or two sensors with a simple yes or no decision, Bosch Professional Series Detectors actually integrate and process data from up to 5 different sensors to make intelligent alarm decisions. This exclusive Sensor Data Fusion technology uses a sophisticated microcontroller within the detector to constantly adjust and balance the sensitivities of each sensor, resulting in the most accurate alarm decisions ever.Long- and short-to-mid-range PIRsTwo PIR sensors (one for long-range; one for mid- and short-range) provide twice the resolution to more effectively monitor the entire coverage area.Active white light suppressionBy processing both infrared and white light, the Professional Series Detectors eliminate false alarms caused by stray lights, such as passing headlights.Dynamic temperature compensationDetects subtle temperature differences while avoiding false alarms at higher temperatures.Range adaptive doppler radar(available on PIR/microwave versions only) The microwave transceiver automatically adjusts its detection thresholds based on input from the PIR sensors. By integrating the target distance information from the PIR, false alarms from the microwave Doppler radar are significantly reduced.Tri-focus opticsThree lenses cover short-, mid- and long-range areas to eliminate gaps in coverage. Professional Series Detectors monitor 86 zones and combine to form 11 solid curtains of detection within the coverage area.Multi-point anti-mask technologyThe Professional Series ISC-PPR1-WA16 and ISC-PDL1-WA18 detectors offer anti-mask technology that is compliant with all of the latest international regulatory standards for detection of objects covering or placed in front of the detector. Using patented prism lenses and active infrared detection, the detector offers protection from all known forms of attack, including fabric, paper, metal, plastic, tape and spray.
