Pyronix MEQ Blue 12m PIR Detector


Pyronix MEQ Blue 12m PIR Detector

A Passive Infrared Receiver (PIR) that constantly monitors the infrared levels of a room, recognising changes caused by the entry of an intruder and informing the panel to go into alarm. Pyronix patented IFT (Independent Floating Thresholds) means it automatically adjusts its levels of immunity to match background disturbances and maintain its suitability for its environment, it even boasts an adjustable sensitivity setting to adapt to temperature and is therefore suitable for any environment.

Product Features

  • Dual element pyro-electric sensor

  • 12m PIR Detector

  • Patented Independent Floating Thresholds (IFT)

  • Adjustable sensitivity settings

  • Automatic temperature compensation

  • Sealed optics

  • ABS plastics

  • Contemporary Blue LED

Panel Type: Domestic


The ME Q blue is a Passive Infrared Receiver, which works by constantly monitoring the infrared energy levels around a room and recognising a change caused by the entry of an intruder. The detector will then inform the panel which will initiate the alarm condition.

The ME Q blue offers superb false alarm immunity and is ideal for most applications be it commercial or domestic, with proven excellence in terms or reliability and value for money. The revolutionary Blue LED looks stylish and modern and is a great addition to any interior. This subtle and contemporary detector complements any décor.

The ME Q blue detector has several features which give the detector superior false alarm immunity:-

  • Sunlight and car headlights are filtered out by using a White Light Filter.
  • Pyronix have developed a system known as IFT which filters out interference caused by external electrical sources.
  • The sensitivity of the detector can be adjusted by your installer to suit the environment by using the Pulse Count feature.
  • Sealed Optics ensure against false alarms caused by insects which may interfere with the sensor inside the detector.

State of the art production methods at Pyronix include a process known as SMT. This ensures a consistently high quality of product and protects against problems caused by Radio Frequencies. This means that potential false alarms as a result of radio waves such as those emitted from emergency service transmitters are minimised.

12m PIR

12m Volumetric detection coverage. Ideal for protection of rooms, offices etc.

30m Long range lens

Optional 30m long range detection coverage lens Ideal for long narrow areas or corridors

Patented Independent Floating Thresholds (IFT)

This technology patented by Pyronix allows the detector to respond to the environmental changes by automatically adjusting its levels of immunity to background disturbances.

Adjustable sensitivity settings

Adjustable sensitivity settings for installations in a any environment. (Pulse Count 1,2,3)

Automatic temperature compensation

When the product is used in a hot environment this technology automatically adjusts the detector’s sensitivity allowing it to maintain its range even when the background room temperature is almost equal to the external body temperature of 32c

Sealed optics

Protects from possible infestation from insects, shields air movement in front of the pyro-electric sensor and protects against adverse reflections from inside the detector housing.

ABS plastics

3mm polished finish, reduces electrostatic interference on the PIR sensor.
