Motion Sensor - Passive Infrared - 12 Volt DC
Description12V DC - Passive Infrared Motion Sensor (PIR)
Switches your lights on automatically when someone approaches your home - welcoming visitors and deterring intruders. Will operate up to 10 amps of lights or other loads. The sensore connects directly to a 12 volt supply (DC) and does not require an inverter.
Compact Infrared sensor triggers security systems, lights, video cameras, audio etc.
Built-in WALK TEST function to ensure desired area of coverage.
On time as a result of movement activation can be set from 5 seconds to 10 minutes.
Standard light switch can override the sensor.
Built-in photocell allows automatic operation at night and disabled in daylight.
The Nightguard operation may be bypassed to make it work during daylight hours.
Adjustable 'ambient light level' for setting the desired dusk light level.
Distance, time and sensing field adjustable.
Suitable for incandescent and quartz halogen lamps.
Switching Larger Loads
Do not use the sensor to control motors, pumps or solenoids directly.
To turn on a larger load that would exceed the sensors contact rating, a "slave relay" can be used. The more robust contact of this relay, which must be supplied from a separate suitably protected heavier circuit, will then operate the larger load.
A 'catch diode' (part # DIO-001) should be connected across the slave relay coil. Read the wiring instructions (with diagram) for operation with a relay.
