Microdetect is a newer and more advanced Occupancy Sensor than the PIR. It works by emitting high-frequency electromagnetic waves and then receives their echo. The sensor detects the change in echo from the slightest movement in the detection zone which commands a microprocessor to switch the light on.
The MV-01 Microwave detector has been designed to be built into luminaires to provide on/off switching control.
The MV-01- IP Microwave detector is a standalone version of the MV-01 and is used for applications where a sealed detector is required. It is supplied within a circular housing which is suitable for direct mounting to a solid surface and has BESA box fixings for conduit applications.
