press release

Munich – Bosch Security Systems continues its tradition of innovation in intrusion detection with the introduction of the Commercial Series family of motion detectors. The new family expands the Bosch portfolio of wall-mount motion detectors, which already includes Blue Line Gen2 for residential and small commercial applications and the Professional Series for midsized to large commercial environments. With the new Commercial Series, Bosch again raises the bar in intrusion detection, delivering the perfect blend of price and performance for small to midsized commercial applications. Like the rest of the portfolio, the new detectors provide excellent catch performance, minimize false alarms and offer unique features to ensure accurate and reliable performance while significantly reducing installation time and complexity.

Excellent catch performance
Commercial Series detects intruders from wall to wall with a broad coverage range of 15 x 15 meters (50 x 50 feet). Unique technology features include sophisticated First Step Processing to deliver an instant response to the first step of an intruder. Dynamic temperature compensation also ensures detection at virtually any temperature, providing optimal performance regardless of room conditions. Active Infrared Anti-mask detects materials being placed in front of or sprayed onto the detector. Sensitivity is adjustable with the flip of a switch to provide the flexibility to fit a range of commercial environments while reducing the number of models integrators need to keep in inventory. Stringent testing ensures catch performance exceeds the regulations of any single country to comply with standards throughout the world.

Immunity from false alarms
When tested against common false alarm triggers under regulatory protocols, the Commercial Series reduces false alarms by more than 35 percent over detectors from other manufacturers. The superior optics and electronics design of the Commercial Series motion detectors ensures the best possible signal quality. This allows for the use of the advanced First Step Processing algorithm for more accurate alarm determinations compared to traditional pulse-count motion detectors. In addition, Microwave Noise Adaptive Processing adjusts to background disturbances, such as a ceiling fan or hanging sign, to easily differentiate humans from false alarm sources. The sealed optical chamber prevents drafts and insects from affecting the detector. These detectors also feature small animal immunity up to 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds).

Faster install
With an installation time that is 43 percent faster on average than traditional detectors from other manufacturers, the Commercial Series motion detectors improve the efficiency of technicians while minimizing installation errors to ensure reliable performance. Designed to eliminate service calls and reduce false alarms, the new integrated end-of-line resistors simplify wiring requirements while the angled lift-gate terminal strip prevents incorrect wiring. The self-locking two-piece enclosure with integrated bi-axial bubble level ensures mounting is fast and easy. In addition, Flexible Mounting Height allows the detectors to be positioned at 2.3 to 2.75 meters (7.5 to 9 feet) with no adjustment needed.

Multiple models
Two models of detectors are available for a range of applications. The TriTech motion detector certified to EN50131–2–4 Grade 2 meets the needs of a wide range of commercial applications. It uses a combination of passive infrared (PIR) and microwave Doppler radar detection technology along with First Step Processing. For high-security applications, the TriTech+ motion detector certified to EN50131–2–4 Grade 3 with Anti-mask features higher sensitivity and anti-mask capabilities to detect materials being placed in front of or sprayed onto the detector. Both models offer selectable sensitivity and LED visibility as well as an adjustable microwave Doppler radar range to reduce false alarms.

Commercial Series detectors are now available for France and the UK – operating at 10.588 GHz (model EN Grade 2 “ISC–CDL1–W15H” and EN Grade 3 “ISC–CDL1–WA15H”) and for Europe, Middle East and Africa operating at 10.525 GHz (model EN Grade 2 “ISC–CDL1–W15G” and EN Grade 3 “ISC–CDL1–WA15G”) – except Germany and Austria.
