Bosch celebrates 20th anniversary

Twenty years and request-to-exit detectors are still popular


Bosch Security Systems, Inc. announces its request-to-exit detectors have opened more than 2.5 million doors across the U.S. as the company celebrates the product family’s 20th anniversary. The detectors are installed in airports, office buildings, government facilities, hospitals, retail stores and in many other applications throughout the nation.

The performance of the DS150i Series and DS160 Series Request-to-exit Detectors continues to exceed the rigorous demands of their applications. Improvements in the design of the products made in recent years resulted in a 40 percent increase in reliability—helping to reduce service calls once the detectors are installed. These popular detectors now include built-in spike protection, which eliminates the need to add a separate module to prevent significant voltage spikes on the relay contact. This feature, along with the use of dip switches that make configuration easier and an auto-sensing 12 to 24 volt voltage regulator, reduces installation complexity—improving the efficiency of technicians in the field.

The DS150i and DS160 devices detect motion in their coverage area and signal an access control system or door control device. They can be used with single or double doors and are wall or ceiling mountable.
