Visonic debuts new wireless ceiling mount detector

DISC MCW combines 360-degree detection capabilities with a miniature, unobtrusive housing design


Tel Aviv, Israel – February 15, 2011 – Visonic Ltd., a leading manufacturer of cutting-edge home security and safety systems, today announced the latest enhancement of its PowerMax family – the DISC MCW, a new wireless ceiling mount detector.

The DISC MCW detector combines state-of-the-art 360° detection capabilities with a miniature, unobtrusive housing design. Manufactured under strict quality control standards, DISC MCW offers outstanding performance and reliability that meet demanding security needs and tough international regulations.

The DISC MCW detector is easily installed on any ceiling up to 3.6m (12ft) high and provides floor coverage of up to 11m (36ft). It is ideal for monitoring large rooms and rooms where the layout or furniture might block a wall-mounted detector's line of sight.
Quick installation, outstanding reliability and low power consumption

Fast and easy installation is a key factor when deploying new security and safety systems and this issue is even more critical with ceiling mount detectors. Because DISC MCW is wireless, installation is remarkably easy and requires only mounting and enrollment in the PowerMax system.

"Reliability and accurate intrusion detection are of utmost importance when using wireless detectors," said Avi Katz, Product Manager at Visonic. "By combining Visonic's expertise of optic design with advanced detection algorithms, the DISC MCW provides the best detection accuracy together with false alarms immunity. We are confident this detector will answer the challenging needs of the market for a reliable ceiling mount wireless motion detector"

As a fully supervised wireless detector, the DISC MCW sends warnings about low battery and other malfunctions to the control panel. The control panel instantly forwards the alert to a central station and/or private phone number, enabling a rapid and effective response and maximizing system's uptime.
