Pyronix TMD15 Confirmed Dual Technology & PIR Grade 3 Detector


Pyronix TMD15 Confirmed Dual Technology & PIR Grade 3 Detector


The TMD is a combined non-overlapping detector with anti-mask, Passive Infrared Receiver (PIR) and a dual-technology detector. A unique product of two independent detectors, in one housing, with non-overlapping fields of view and separate relay outputs that provide 15m volumetric coverage in both lenses. Ideal in high security and hostile environments, it also offers unparalleled stability against false alarm activations with Tri-cover mode.

The TMD15® is a unique product boasting 2 non-overlapping detectors; a PIR and a Dual Technology in 1 robust housing.


Based on Pyronix’ tried and tested patented technologies which has been proven over the last 30 years coupled with innovative features, the TMD15® offers you outstanding detection performance with optimum reliability designed to meet the latest industry regulations.


Volumetric coverage


15m Volumetric coverage in both lenses. Ideal for hostile environments.


3 Independent relays


Dual technology, PIR and mask relays


TMD (sequential confirmation) Mode


2 Independent detectors in 1 housing with non-overlapping fields of view and separate relay outputs provide a simple solution to sequential confirmation.


Anti-masking detection


Ideal in high security environments where there may be a significant risk of masking. An area immediately in front of the KX15DTAM is monitored continuously and separately from its normal mode. Any intrusion into this quiet area activates the anti-masking process. It also has separate mask and trouble output.


Auto sensitivity feature


Depending on the environment condition, the detector will automatically adjust the sensitivity
Selectable EOL resistors The detectors incorporates selectable alarm resistor values of 6K8, 5K6, 4K7 &1K & tamper values of 5K6, 4K7, 2K2 and 1K catering for most control panels on the market.


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.


Anti blocking technology


Provides blocking detection up to 15m in disarmed mode, for example, if the field of view is blocked when the system is being armed, arming will not be possible until the blockage has been removed.


Digital Temperature Compensation


When the product is used in a hot environment this technology digitally 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 32ºC (internal body temperature = 37ºC)


Tricover mode


Triple coverage ensures that an alarm will not occur unless all 3 detector fields are activated in a particular sequence. Offers unparalleled stability in the elimination of false alarm activations.


Quad LED indication


Provides indication of all technologies and detectors
