This article introduces an energy saving device from CP Electronics - the PDS-PRM No Neutral Wall Mounted PIR Presence Detector. 

Note: this item is no longer available via Sparks; see here the full range of presence detectors.

The PDS-PRM presence detector switches are designed to provide automatic control of lighting, heating or ventilation loads.

They detect movement using a PIR sensor and turn the load on. When an area is no longer occupied the load will switch off after an adjustable time out period.

A similar device is the CP Electronics PDS - Wall Mounted No Neutral Presence Detector, energy saving presence detection switch.

An internal light sensor provides additional energy saving in lighting applications.

When an area is occupied lighting is only switched on when the level of natural light is below a preset level.

A selectable security mode switches the lights on for a period of 2 hours when it gets dark, regardless of occupancy, to give the impression of a building being occupied.

The CP Electronics PDS-PRM/S comes with longer mounting screws and countersunk holes on the cover plate.

This is to allow the installer to secure the unit and cover plate with external screw fixings.

The Security mode can be turned on and off using the switches as shown in the “setup” section.
