Push-in terminals make motion sensor easy to install

A new Passive Infrared (PIR) motion sensor from European relay and timer specialist Finder is in stock at Conrad Business Supplies. The Type 18.A1 provides the user with a wide, 110° horizontal angle of survey. The sensor orientation can be customised based on application requirements and parameters such as adjustable threshold and light on timer can be configured.

Part of the 18 Series of Finder motion detectors, the 18.A1 is particularly suited for outdoor use and wall mounting. Built to meet stringent IP55 standards, for dust and water ingress, and with the ability to operate at temperatures between -30 and +50°C, the device can used in even the toughest environmental conditions. 

The sensor uses a push-in terminal technology which allows for an easy installation of the sensor.

It also provides a viewing width of 10m and a highly sensitive ambient light intervention threshold making it ideal for universal applications and diverse conditions.

This threshold of 5 - 1000 lx, is much wider than seen with other models, which tend to operate between 5 - 350 lx. 

Holger Morgenstern, Product Manager, Category Business Supplies, commented: “This latest motion detector from Finder allows us to add to the selection of proven security devices, including PIR sensors and motion detectors that we offer to our customers. We are confident that the Finder 18.A1 will be particularly attractive to those looking for high-quality and reliable solutions for example for improved lighting and security in outdoor areas.”
