Vanderbilt has announced that its 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 the end users of security systems and by their insurers.
Similarly, INCERT is recognised all over Belgium and the Netherlands where the 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 also received German VdS approval.
These approvals come just 12 months 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 Matchtec algorithm which combines passive infrared (PIR) and microwave (MW) channels to make “incredibly accurate” decisions on motion within a detection zone. The detectors 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 are said to 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’s 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 and significantly more demanding CE Regulations that came into force last year.
“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’re 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 offer Best in Class levels of operational performance.”
