The Newton is an active infra-red detection system suited to the protection of objects with a medium risk profile. It works by sending a light beam to a receiver. This beam is invisible to the naked eye and will trigger an alarm if disrupted. Transmitter and receiver are housed in a special outdoor casing and can be placed up to 50 metres apart.
|How it works:||Disruption of the infra-red beam between transmitter and receiver.|
|Location:||Works best on a flat, clean, open terrain with no obstacles blocking the line of sight between transmitter and receiver.|
|Weather influence:||Does not work well in thick fog, frost, rain or snow.|
|Alarm zone:||Per set (transmitter and receiver).|
|Advantages:||Mono-optic active system that works preventively. Familiar, easy to understand technology, takes up little space.|
|Drawbacks:||Sensitive to bad weather, and triggered by larger animals such as cats and dogs.|
|Application:||Projects with a low to medium risk profile.|
