|GNT-IBS : Infrared Beam Sensor
The GNT-IBS wireless infrared beam sensor is designed to protect the exterior of the vessel. There is an invisible infrared beam between the emitter and the detector (photoelectric eyes). Once the infrared beam is broken the sensor is activated and causes the system to go into alarm. These sensors are commonly installed in the gunwales to protect the cockpit areas. Other uses include open fly bridges to protect the electronics or any other exposed areas where a motion detector is not practical. These sensors have a built in fail safe amplifier and are resistant to sunlight and other interference. These sensors are also available with 2 sets of photoelectric eyes.
