DAYLIGHT AND MOTION SENSORS

Motion Sensor

 

Motion can be detected through plastic, glass and thin non-metal materials (up to a max height of 15 metres.

The sensors allow energy saving without compromising comfort.  When used in combination with 1-10v dimmable LED drivers or ballasts, they can achieve 3 step dimming function – perfect for use in some areas that require a staged lighting change before totally switching off.

 

Daylight sensor

 

Daylighting harvesting means the lighting system has automated controls that either turn off or dim artificial light in response to the available day light in the area.

 

Settings options

 

When choosing to use microwave motion (& daylight) sensors, it is important to choose the right combination to suit your lighting requirements.  the following is an overview of one of the most popular microwave motions sensors for warehousing in Australia. 

1. Distance of detection

 

The detection area can be set at 100% or reduced to 50% of the max detection area.

 

  • 100% (up to 14.9 metres)

  • 50% (up to 7.5 metres)

 

2. Hold time

 

This is the time period the fitting will remain at 100% illumination after no motion is detected.

 

  • 5 seconds

  • 30 seconds

  • 90 seconds

  • 3 minutes

  • 20 minutes

  • 30 minutes

 

3. Standby period

 

Refers to the time period the lamp remains at a low light level before it completely switches off when no detection of movement in the area. When set to disable mode, the low light is maintained until motion is detected.

 

  • Disable

  • 60 minutes

  • 30 minutes

  • 10 minutes

  • 5 minutes

  • 5 seconds

 

 

5. Stand-by dimming level

 

The low light level you would like to have after the hold time in the absence of movement

 

  • 50%

  • 30%

  • 20%

  • 10%

 

6. Daylight sensor

 

The sensor can be set to only allow the lamp to illuminate below a defined ambient brightness threshold.

 

When set to disable mode, the daylight sensor will switch on the lamp when motion is detected regardless of ambient light leve.

 

 

  • Disable

  • 200lux

  • 100lux

  • 50lux

 

Detection Pattern

When considering the use of microwave sensors it is important to understand the power consumtion when the sensor is one either standaby or in operation.

 

The majority of sensors on the market should use no more than

 

  • Standby - <0.8w

  • In operaton - < 1.5w

Wall Mounting Pattern

Detection angle - 150 degrees

Ceiling Mounting Pattern

Detection angle - 360 degrees

 

Sensor power consumption

When considering the use of microwave sensors it is important to understand the power consumption when the sensor is one either stand-by or in operation.

 

The majority of sensors on the market should use no more than

 

  • Standby - <0.8w

  • In operaton - < 1.5w

 

Sensor styles available to suit various installation requirements

It is also important to ensure that the actual sensor used is the correct style of sensor.  Below is an overview of 4 main sensor types available in Australia.

Highbays

Linear Type Fittings

Recess Type Fittings

Wall Mount Fittings e.g. floodlights
