This is the Danlers batten mounted PIR occupancy switch with Intelligent photocell - batten mounted PIR switch - the 5m version. The Danlers Batten mount passive infra-red occupancy switches (PIR) with ‘Intelligent’ Photocell can be mounted onto the end of lighting battens via the 20mm knock out. The switch includes the connection 20mm thread and 1m of wire tails to connect to the lighting ballast.
The BMINTPIR5M incorporates a passive infra-red quad sensor to detect movement of a warm body within the detection zone. On detecting movement, if the ambient light is dark enough, the PIR will switch the load on. The ambient threshold can be set by the user to between approximately 100 and 3000 lux (on the working plane) via the LUX adjuster.
BMINTPIR5M operates with “ACTIVE” Lux control. It constantly samples the ambient LUX level and will, even if the area is occupied, switch off the controlled lamps (if the lux rises above the user set threshold and remains there for the overlux timeout period). If the artificial lights are ON and the LUX then rises greater than the set threshold (plus the “stored calibrated hysteresis” – saved during calibration) the product will then switch the artificial lights off after a preset time delay.
  • The calibration process removes the site specific addition of artificial light from any decision to switch the lights on/off.”
  • This technology has a GB patent pending No: 1219746.3.
  • BMINTPIR5M has user feedback including a "real time" photocell status indicator: Green LED illuminated indicates sufficient ambient light - load turns off after threshold delay.
  • If no more movement is detected within a certain time, then the PIR will switch off the load. The time can be set via the internal TIME adjuster to between 10seconds and 40 minutes.

NOTE: It is advised that this product is only used in environments where some natural light is available.
