Product Details

PIR (Passive Infra-Red) sensor module

The PIR (Passive Infra-Red) Sensor is a pyroelectric device that detects motion by measuring changes in the infrared (heat) levels emitted by surrounding objects. When motion is detected the PIR Sensor outputs a high signal on its output pin. This logic signal can be read by a microcontroller or used to drive an external load.

Detect a person up to 10 m away, or up to 5 m in reduced sensitivity mode
Jumper selects normal operation or reduced sensitivity
Supply current up to 12 mA @ +3 V, 23mA @ +5 V
Onboard LEDs light up the lens for fast visual feedback when movement is detected
Mounting holes for 2-56 sized screws
3-pin SIP header ready for breadboard or through-hole projects
Small size makes it easy to conceal
Easy interface to any microcontroller
Power requirement: +3 to +6 Vdc, 130 μA idle, 23 mA active (no load)
Communication: Single-bit high/low output
Dimensions: 35.8 x 25.4 x 20.3 mm
Operating temperature range: 0 to +50°C

Parallax Inc Sensor Development Kits

The Parallax Inc sensor is a pyroelectric device that detects motion by measuring changes in the infrared (heat) levels emitted by surrounding objects. This motion can be detected by checking for a sudden change in the surrounding IR pattern. When motion is detected, the PIR sensor outputs a high signal on its output pin. This logic signal can be read by a microcontroller or used to drive an external load.
