TAKEX launches new photoelectric beam sensor

March 21, 2024



TAKEX has released a photoelectric beam sensor, the PB-60TX, designed for improved performance, easy alignment and reduced energy consumption.

Building on the legacy of the PB-TE twin beam series, PB-60TX incorporates a number of features to enhance security and user experience, according to TAXEX.

Reduced energy consumption

The PB-60TX boasts a 53% reduction in energy consumption compared to previous models, reducing environmental impact without compromising performance.

Additionally, the unit features a user-friendly sound check function for alignment, optional anti-bird spikes to prevent interference, together with a drip-proof housing and self-sealing grommets for enhanced insect and weather resistance.

Beyond just intrusion detection, the PB-60TX introduces a secondary real-time alarm output mode, opening it up to new applications such as people counting.

“The PB-60TX represents a significant leap forward in photoelectric beam sensor technology,” said John Angell, Business Manager at TAKEX.

“This innovative sensor offers unmatched reliability, adaptability and energy efficiency, catering to the evolving needs of security professionals and property owners.”

Featuring TAKEX’s industry-leading double modulation beam technology, PB-60TX ensures operational stability by significantly reducing the likelihood of false activations caused by ambient light.


Four selectable frequencies allow for multiple beam sets without interference, ideal for linear configurations.

Its selectable beam power (30m/100ft or 60m/200ft) and ±95° horizontal /±10 vertical optical adjustment allows it to adapt to site-specific requirements, making it a choice for any intruder detection application.

PB-60TX creates an invisible line of detection between two points, commonly used to signal intrusion events across driveways, gateways and courtyards, or mounted to sides of buildings to cover single or multiple windows and doors
