bioVibez MP-AC1-R2-Gen2 - Motion sensor / detector automatic switch is a dual output / channel micro-controlled PIR (Pyroelectric Infrared or Passive Infrared) sensor with 2 user configurable relay outputs. The sensor can be configured using DIP switches.
Microcontroller based - A microcontroller-based design gives more precise timeouts and digital control.
Independent precise channel timeouts (8-presets) - Precise discrete relay timeouts for each channel can be set for each output using DIP switches.
CH-2 start mode - The outputs can be configured to be triggered together (parallel mode) or in sequence (sequential mode) with motion detection. In sequential mode CH-2 output does not switch "ON" with motion detection. It switches "ON" after CH-1 times out. Any motion detection while CH-2 is switched "ON" will reset CH-1 timeout and outputs. (CH-1 "ON" & CH-2 "OFF")
LUX set point (2 levels) - Common LUX set point (ambient light) setting.
Independent LUX control - Both channel outputs can be separately enabled / disabled for ambient light sensing. De-activating LUX control allows the output to be used for non-lighting applications such as operating exhaust fans which need to be operated irrespective of the ambient light conditions.
PIR sensitivity (4 levels) – The sensors motion detection sensitivity can be adjusted.
SMPS - for standby power savings. The module is powered by a built in universal SMPS (switched mode power supply).
Why dual outputs? - Practical application like a toilet/bathroom, where lights need to be controlled with both motion and ambient light. But, at the same time exhaust fan which should be controlled with motion only. Dual outputs make it an ideal choice for using in toilets / urinals / bathrooms where one channel (PIR + LUX control enabled) controls the light/lights and second channel (PIR) operates the exhaust fan. When there is proper ambient lighting, the lights will remain "OFF" but the exhaust will switch "ON". This cannot be accomplished using a single channel output.
Dynamic set lux point - Dynamic set point is captured after a delay, once channel relay switches "ON". The dynamic set point includes the new ambient lux value of the light attached to the outputs. This prevents hunting or race condition.
Ceiling or wall mounted - The sensor has a universal mounting design which allows for wall and ceiling mounted.
Polycarbonate enclosure - Fire retardant grade polycarbonate enclosure ensures safety and rigidity. Polycarbonate is more durable than ABS, as it does not degrade or change colour with exposure to sunlight.
