Texecom evolves Ricochet wireless range

Texecom has released a number of new enhancements to its Ricochet wireless product portfolio.

Following a focused programme of development, the wireless range now benefits from extended range, improved battery performance and the most advanced testing yet.

Enhancements to the Ricochet technology range include:

  • Increased wireless transmission range on the Premier Elite 64-W range which now has a clear line of sight PIR detection and contact sensor range in excess of 1000m.
  • Improved battery performance in the Impaq SC-W, Micro Contact, Micro Shock and Capture ranges.
  • Inclusion of Micro deep base with every Ricochet product to enhance signal strength when installed in applications where metal surfaces and materials are present.

Further to the above, Texecom has also invested in a wireless conditioning chamber. This chamber ensures that the Impaq SC-W and Capture product ranges undergo a further round of robust testing in the most of extreme of conditions. Further wireless ranges will be added to this testing process in the near future.

Texecom has also introduced a number of new guides on its website detailing best practices when installing these wireless solutions, including key factors that impact signal range and performance and in addition, a custom-built design tool to guide installers on real world performance by showing the impact of obstacles such as walls and differing materials.

Peter Alexander, Technical Director at Texecom commented “At Texecom we work closely with professional security installers to ensure we are developing and manufacturing products and solutions suitable for the environments they are installed in. The enhancements to our wireless product range are not only a result of this feedback but also due to significant research and development efforts to ensure we are delivering on our ethos of: Looking after the things people care about, wherever they are.”

Texecom intends to release further enhancements next year and beyond as part of an ongoing installer focussed programme.
