    Hope you folks enjoy. I use Optex sensors myself, and I wanted to start sharing them with others. I have more Optex sensors that I will be reviewing soon.

    Normally use the BX-80NR series, even thou is more expensive, but it covers more area (180 degrees). How the Fitlink compares to the BX series?

    The BX-80 detects from both sides where the fitlink is one sided detection with an upper and lower zone. The fitlink is designed to be placed at the end of a wall more or less instead of in the middle like the BX-80. Very easy to setup and user friendly.

    Appreciate your input. Hope to have the opportunity to install the Fitlink instead. Thanks

    Pricewise, the BX looks to cover more area, but then again you need to add the receiver. If you have the opportunity to test both sensors in terms of performance, that will be great. Good video!

    Thanks. I'll try to get my hands on a BX to do a video.
