Coverage:
NOTE:
360° by 60 ft. (18.3 m) diameter coverage when
mounted on eight to 18 ft. (2.4 to 5.5 m) high ceilings.
Pattern consists of 64 zones grouped into 16 barriers,
with one additional zone looking straight down from
the unit (sabotage). Each barrier is 30 ft. (9.2 m) long
and 4.4 ft. (1.3 m) wide at 30 ft. (9.2 m). Choice of two
optical modules depending on ceiling height.
For U. L. Listed Requirements, the coverage is 360° by 54 ft.
(16.5 m) when mounted from 10 to 13 ft. (3.1 to 4.0 m) using
the AR8-13 Array and when mounted from 15 to 18 ft. (4.6 to
5.5 m) using the AR13-18 Array.
Input Power:
6.0 to 15.0 VDC; 18 mA.
Standby Power:
There is no internal standby battery. Connect to DC
power sources capable of supplying standby power if
primary power fails. Eighteen mA-H required for each
hour of standby time needed. Four hours (72 mA-H
minimum) are required for U. L. Listed Requirements.
Sensitivity:
Field selectable for Standard, Intermediate, or High.
Alarm Relay:
Silent operating Form “C” relay. Contacts rated 125
mA, 28 VDC maximum for DC resistive loads. Do not
use with capacitive or inductive loads.
Tamper:
Normally Closed (with cover in place) tamper switch.
Contacts rated at 28 VDC, 125 mA maximum.
Trouble Output:
A solid state open collector conducts to terminal 1 (-)
when the detector is in a trouble condition. Maximum
current load is 25 mA.
Temperature:
The storage and operating range is -20° to +120°F
(-29° to +50°C). For U. L. Listed Requirements, the
range is +32° to +120°F (0° to +50°C).
Sonalert™
Connector:
The mounting surface should be solid and vibration free (e.g.,
drop tiles should be secured if the area above the tiles is used
as an air return for HVAC systems).
•
Do not mount near air handling system outlets, or in areas of extreme
drafts.
•
Remove the cover by turning it counterclockwise.
•
Remove the base from the enclosure by pressing the two enclosure
release tabs inward while lifting the enclosure away from the base.
HINT:
•
Route wiring as necessary to the rear of the base and through the
center hole.
NOTE:
•
Slightly rock the enclosure side-to-side during removal to
overcome the friction caused by the base-to-enclosure terminal
pins.
Be sure all wiring is unpowered (de-energized) before routing.
Firmly mount the base. Depending on local regulations, the base may
be directly surface mounted using anchors, mollies, or wing-nuts, or
may be mounted to standard four-inch octagonal or square electrical
boxes.
NOTE:
The RX360 base will not completely cover a four-inch square
box. Where aesthetics are important, a four-inch octagonal box
is recommended.
HINT:
Mounting to removable ceiling tiles is not recommended unless
a sandwich is made of the base, ceiling tile, and a back plate
behind the tile. Covers used for four-inch octagonal and square
boxes make a suitable back plate (when used with bolts and
wing nuts, as an example).
Using a Sonalert™ type sounder (low voltage) will provide an audible tone when the unit is in alarm. Use of
the sounder is intended only as an aid for walk testing
during installation.

Selecting the Optical Module (AR8-13 or AR13-18)
•
Replace the enclosure onto the base.
•
For ceilings between 8 and 13 ft. (2.4 and 4.0 m) from the floor, use the
optical module marked AR8-13. This marking can be found next to the
two optical module tabs.
•
Intermediate Sensitivity: The recommended setting for most installations. Use in locations where an intruder is expected to cover only a
small portion of the protected area. Tolerates normal environments on
this setting. The detector is shipped in Intermediate Sensitivity
mode.
•
High Sensitivity: The setting for fast response to intruder signals. For
use only in extremely quiet environments where ceiling drafts, and thermal and illumination transients are not anticipated.
For ceilings between 13 and 18 ft. (4.0 and 5.5 m) high, use the optical
module marked AR13-18.
To replace an optical module, push the optical module tabs towards the
center until the module snaps free of the circuit board. Holding the new
module by the tabs, snap the new module into place.
If both switches are in the OFF position, the unit will default to the
Intermediate setting.
NOTE:
Avoid fingerprints on the mirrored surfaces. Should the mirrored surfaces become soiled or otherwise marked, they can be cleaned using a
soft, clean cloth and any commonly available, mild window cleaner.
Although the sensitivity modes provide different degrees of
tolerance to environmentally caused alarms, the installer should
assure peak background noise voltage readings do not exceed
±0.15 VDC.
Anti-Blocking Timer (S4 and S5)
Wiring
Set switches S4 and S5 for the desired anti-blocking timer time. The
detector is shipped with the anti-blocking timer feature disabled.
ONLY APPLY POWER AFTER ALL CONNECTIONS
HAVE BEEN MADE AND INSPECTED.
NOTE:
Signal Gain
The RX360 permits selection of the signal gain depending upon the environment to be protected. The gain
select jumper is located under the optical module.
Do not coil excess wiring inside unit.
•
High Gain: Recommended for large coverage applications up to 60 ft.
(18.3 m) in diameter. The RX360 is shipped in this setting. If the gain
select jumper is missing, the unit will default to High Gain.
•
Low Gain: Recommended for applications where the area to be covered is 40 ft. (12.2 m) or less in diameter and for applications where
High Gain may be too sensitive for environmental extremes.
NOTE:
•
Terminals 1 (-) & 2 (+): Power limits are 6 to 15 VDC. Use no smaller
than #22 AWG (0.8 mm) wire pair between the unit and the power
source.
•
Terminals 3, 4, & 5: Alarm relay contacts rated 125 mA, 28 VDC
maximum for DC resistive loads. Use terminals 4 & 5 for Normally
Closed circuits. Do not use with capacitive or inductive loads.
•
Terminals 6 & 7: Normally Closed tamper contacts rated at 28 VDC,
125 mA.
•
Terminal 8: Trouble Output.
Setup and Walk Testing
•
Attach test leads to the Noise Voltage terminals. The outside terminals
are common, and the center terminal is positive (+).
•
Attach a Sonalert™ to the sounder pins at this time if one will be used
during walk testing.
NOTE:
Configuration Switch Settings
•
Place the cover on the unit, and twist-lock it clockwise into place.
NOTE:
LED Operation (S1)
•
ON: Allows the Alarm/Test LED to operate when activated by motion.
•
OFF: The LED will not operate on alarm activation, but will indicate a
supervision trouble condition.
Be sure the test leads and Sonalert™ leads are dressed
through the cutout.
•
Apply power to the unit.
•
Wait at least two minutes, after applying power, to start walk tests.
NOTE:
Walk testing should be done across the
coverage pattern as shown.
•
The edge of the coverage pattern is determined when
the Alarm/Test LED indicator (and Sonalert™, if installed) first turns on.
•
Walk test the unit from all directions to determine the
boundaries.
•
After completion of the walk tests, remove the
Sonalert™ (if installed).
Sensitivity Mode (S2 and S3)
Sensitivity modes depend on the type of coverage desired and the
installation environment.
Standard Sensitivity: Tolerates environment extremes on this setting,
but requires the largest amount of intruder motion to achieve an alarm.
www.PDF-Zoo.com
The use of a Sonalert™ type device (sounder) will provide an
audible tone during the time the unit is in alarm. Of the three
available connector pins, the center pin is positive (+) with
respect to either outside pin (outside pins are common (-)).
Sonalert™ is a trademark of Mallory.
The RX360 has several features that are controlled using the configuration switches.
•
Setting the RX360 for Low Gain reduces the coverage area to
40 ft. (12.2 m) in diameter.

Setting the anti-blocking timer to shorter periods can be used to force a
protection walk test of remotely located zones.
Final Tests
Noise Measurement
NOTE:
•
•
It is recommended that the 30 day timer be selected. This verifies that
the unit is operational and avoids nuisance trouble conditions caused
by holidays, vacations, etc.
Meter readings are very important in determining background
disturbance levels and catch margin sensitivity.
Connect a 20,000 ohm/volt (or greater) DC VOM to the Noise Voltage
connector using test leads as shown. Set meter scale for about 3.0
VDC.
The base reference level for reading background
noise or target voltages is approximately 2.0 VDC.
Installations in quiet environments, therefore, will
result in a steady meter reading between 1.9 and
2.1 VDC. Look for areas and sources of thermal disturbances if the meter fluctuates greatly.
•
Turn on all heating and cooling sources that would normally be in operation during times of protection. Stand away from the unit and outside the coverage pattern, then monitor the background noise for at
least three minutes.
Peel-off masks are provided with the unit for each segment of the optical module to allow for customized coverage, or to block out areas of
objects that may cause thermal disturbances. The mask is self-adhesive and pre-cut in the shape of the optical module.
•
Readings should not deviate from the reference level more than ±0.15
VDC. For readings outside these limits; eliminate the cause, rotate the
unit slightly, or mask out the mirror segment(s) looking down at the
thermal disturbance.
To block out a particular zone or group of zones, peel off a section of
the mask that corresponds to the appropriate zone, and stick it on the
mirror segment. See Mirror Module to Pattern Reference to identify
mirror segments and zones.
Maintenance
•
At least once a year, the range and coverage should be checked according to Setup and Walk Testing and Final Tests above.
•
To ensure continued daily operation, the end user should be instructed
to daily walk through the far end of the coverage pattern. This assures
an alarm output prior to arming the system.
Again walk across the farthest edge of required coverage.
A minimum voltage change of 1.0 VDC from the reference level is
required in the wintertime when the background temperature is cool.
This will make up for summertime, when the background is warmer. If
testing the unit in the summertime, the minimum recommended voltage change is 0.75 VDC.
•
After the cover has been installed and twisted into place, the entire
assembly can be secured together using the supplied anti-vandal
screws. There are two of them; one for each side (see drawings on
page 1 for the location of the screw holes).

#5,083,106, and #5,670,943.
Typical Placements to Achieve Coverage
Supervision Features
The RX360 performs several supervision features that, combined with
the advanced motion detection capabilities of the detector, provide an
extremely high level of security. A supervision trouble condition is
indicated at the detector by the Alarm/Test LED (see the Supervision
Display Chart).
•
The LED indicates the cause of the supervision trouble using coded
pulses. The supervision trouble signal activates the Trouble Output
available at terminal 8, which should be connected to a 24-hour zone.
Mirror Module to Pattern Reference
The supervision features function as follows:
•
PIR: The operation of the PIR is electronically checked approximately
every 12 hours. If the PIR fails, the Alarm/Test LED will flash four times
and the Trouble Output will activate.
•
Anti-Blocking Timer: This feature verifies that the detector has a
clear view of the detection area and has not been blocked. When selected using switches S4 and S5, a supervision timer is activated. A
trouble condition will be indicated if the detector has not alarmed at
least once during the selected time period (this feature can be disabled by placing both switches in the Off position). The time period
selected should be long enough to allow adequate time for holiday
weekends.
Refer to Configuration Switch Settings for proper switch settings.
If the time period selected has elapsed from the last alarm, the LED
will flash two times and the Trouble Output will activate.

TO THE INSTALLER
Regular maintenance and inspection (at least annually) by the installer
and frequent testing by the user are vital to the continuous satisfactory
operation of any alarm system.
The installer should assume the responsibility of developing and offering
a repair maintenance program to the user, as well as acquainting the
user with the proper operation and limitations of the alarm system and
its component parts. Recommendations must be included for a specific
program of frequent testing (at least weekly) to insure the systems
operation at all times.
WARNING!
THE LIMITATIONS OF YOUR
PASSIVE MOTION DETECTOR
While this Intrusion Detector is a highly reliable intrusion device, it does
not offer guaranteed protection against burglary. Any Intrusion Detection
device is subject to compromise or failure to warn for a variety of
reasons. For example:
•
These Motion Detectors can only detect intrusion within the designated
ranges as diagrammed in this installation manual.
•
The passive infrared sensor in this Motion Detector does not provide
volumetric area protection. It does create multiple beams of protection,
and intrusion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by
those beams.
•
Passive Infrared Detectors cannot detect motion or intrusion that takes
place behind walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass
doors, or windows.
•
Metal objects (or other reflectors, such as foil faced insulation or water
in bottles) can alter the microwave sensor’s protection pattern.
•
Mechanical tampering, masking, painting or spraying of any material
on the lenses, windows or any part of the optical system can reduce
the detection ability of the Passive Infrared Motion Detector.
•
Passive Infrared Detectors sense changes in temperature; however,
as the ambient temperature of the protected area approaches the temperature range of 90° to 105°F (32° to 40°C), the detection performance
can decrease.
•
The detector will not operate without appropriate DC power connected
to it, or if the DC power is improperly connected (i.e., reversed polarity
connections).
•
These Detectors, like other electrical devices, are subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed to last as long as
10 years, the electronic components could fail at any time.
We have cited some of the most common reasons that this Motion
Detector can fail to catch intrusion. However, this does not imply that
these are the only reasons, and therefore it is recommended that weekly
testing of this type of unit, in conjunction with weekly testing of the entire
alarm system, be performed to ensure that the detectors are working
properly.
Installing an alarm system may make the owner eligible for a lower
insurance rate, but an alarm system is not a substitute for insurance.
Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act
prudently in protecting themselves and continue to insure their lives and
property.
We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of
alarm systems owe it to themselves and their loved ones to learn about
these developments.
