Phoenix EX



BEA’s Phoenix EX combines a microwave activation sensor in an explosion-proof / flame-proof housing, which is ideal for use in unique environments such as chemical manufacturing, petroleum refining and military facilities.

The Phoenix EX is designed to detect within a desired area for security, warning indication and automation. When tied into a security system, the Phoenix EX offers a monitoring feature via the end-of-line resistors. These resistors provide unique output states, which allow differentiation between an activation signal and an interruption in functionality due to tampering of the device.

The explosion-proof / flame-proof housing is a NEMA 4X, water-proof rated enclosure designed as an IP66 housing. This housing achieves UL Class I, Div. 1, Groups B, C, D; Class II, Div. 1 & 2, Groups E, F, G; and Class III***.
