Panasonic's High-Density Long Range PIR Motion Detector

Panasonic’s new passive infrared sensor excel through the unbelievable small optic and a specified installation height up to 17 m. A special lens design with an additional lip allows fast integration into IP-rated applications by using for example an o-ring construction.

The pyroelectric sensor complements the PaPIRs families EKMC (standby current consumption: 170 μA) and EKMB (standby current consumption: 1 μA, 2 μA and 6 μA) for  battery-free and battery-operated devices, respectively.  The quad-sensor-based design with a very high detection zone density of 128 guarantees a reliable response even over huge distances. The detection area is circular and symmetrical which simplifies sensor integration because of the independence of sensor orientation within the final product.

Evaluation samples and tentative specifications are available. The official market launch will be at the end of April 2018.
