CONFIGURATION OF THE SENSOR
Every adjustment session using the infrared remote control must start with unlocking and end with a double locking.
PARAMETERS
UNLOCK
The table below lists the parameters able to be adjusted by remote control and the operations required in order to adjust these
parameters.
ACTIONS
LED SIGNAL
Press the UNLOCK key (4).
Enter your 4-digit access code using 0-9 NUMBER keys (1).
The red LED flashes quickly waiting for the
access code.
During the first sensor adjustment or if the access code is reset to the "0000" value
After entering the correct access code or if no
(factory setting) or during the first minute after the power-on, press only the UNLOCK key access code is required, the red LED flashes
(4) (no access code required).
slowly to indicate that the unlock is successful
and the adjustment session has begun.
UNLOCK with access code
UNLOCK without access code
Note:
LOCK
When all the parameters have been set, press the LOCK key (16).
If you wish to enter a new access code, use 0-9 NUMBER
keys (1) to enter the new 4-digit access code within 1 minute.
= Adjustment session ON
The red LED stops flashing to return to its normal
function.
If no access code is entered or if you want to keep the current access code, press the
LOCK key (16) once more.
If no remote control key is pressed within 1 minute, the adjustment session is automatically
locked.

Note:
All parameters or functions listed in the following tables are only accessible if the sensor is in adjustment session.
The red LED is then slowly flashing.
During an adjustment session each parameter may be checked or changed at any time in the following way:
PARAMETERS ACTIONS
Press the key corresponding to the parameter to be checked and then press the CHECK VALUES key (15).
CHECK
Count the number of times the green LED flashes, which corresponds to the value of the checked parameter. No green LED flash corresponds
VALUES
to the value 0.
Repeat this operation to check the value of the other parameters if required.
Example: SENSITIVITY key (7) – 7 flashes of the LED: the radar sensitivity is set at the value 7.
PLUS
CHECK VALUES :
Press the key corresponding to the sensitivity (7) or holdtime (6) parameter to be modified and then press the PLUS key (3) to increase the
value by 1 unit.
PLUS :
MINUS
Press the key corresponding to the sensitivity (7) or holdtime (6) parameter to be modified and then press the MINUS key (5) to reduce the
value by 1 unit.
MINUS :
Note about LED signal: The red LED flashes quickly waiting for the value. Once this has been entered, it flashes slowly again.
PARAMETERS
SENSITIVITY
HOLD TIME
ACTIONS
Press the SENSITIVITY key (7).
Use the NUMBER keys 0-9 (1) to enter the sensitivity required (or adjust this
parameter using the PLUS (3) or MINUS (5) keys as explained above)
SENSITIVITY :
Press the HOLD TIME key (6).
Use the NUMBER keys 0-9 (1) to enter the required hold time (0.5 s to 9 s)
(or adjust this parameter using the PLUS (3) or MINUS (5) keys as explained
above).
DEFINITIONS - ADVICES
To increase the sensitivity means to increase the sensor
capabilities to detect small useful signals.
Practically, to increase the sensitivity leads to increase the
dimensions of the sensing field.
The hold time allows extended output activation time after a
motion detection has stopped. It is recommended to use this
parameter instead of the operator’s one with the same function
(interferences with the sensor)
HOLD TIME :
DETECTION
MODE
REJECTION
MODE
Press the DETECTION MODE key (8).
Use the NUMBER keys 1-3 (1) to select the required mode :
Key 1 : bidirectional mode
Key 2 : unidirectional mode
Key 3 : unidirectional mode with the MTF function
DETECTION MODE :
Press the REJECTION MODE key (8).
Perturbations immunity is used to avoid detection due to environmental
perturbations (vibrations, rains, etc).
“Pedestrian/parallel traffic rejection” provides both rejection of pedestrian
and rejection of any parallel traffic simultaneously.
Use the NUMBER keys 1- 5 (1) to enter the required rejection mode :
OUTPUT
REDIRECTION
Key 1 : detection of all kind of targets in motion
Key 2 : detection of all kind of targets in motion
+ perturbations immunity
Key 3 : Low “Pedestrian/parallel traffic” rejection
+ perturbations immunity
Key 4 : Mid “Pedestrian/parallel traffic” rejection
+ perturbations immunity
Key 5 : High “Pedestrian/parallel traffic” rejection
+ perturbations immunity
Press the OUTPUT REDIRECTION key (2) to switch from one mode to
another.
Key 0: regular operating mode (standard FALCON).
Key 1: pedestrian or vehicle mode detection
Any motion detected activates relay 1.
Motion of vehicle triggers relay 2.
75.5268.01 20070111
With the bidirectional mode, the approaching and departing
target is detected. With the unidirectional mode, only the
approaching target is detected.
Using the MTF (Motion Tracking Feature) enables the sensor
to automatically switch from the unidirectional mode to
bidirectional mode as soon as a target is detected. This
function is recommended for applications with elderly people
or anyone approaching the door hesitantly.
The discrimination between a pedestrian and the different
vehicles depends mainly on the mounting height and the
microwave module tilt angle. Be careful that the rejection
function increases the response time of the sensor.
Use the next table as suggestions and do not hesitate to
increase or decrease the rejection level to obtain the required
rejection.
23 ft
16.5 ft
11.5 ft
10 ft
7.5 ft
Pedestrian or vehicle mode detection only works if pedestrian
rejection is enabled (immunity parameter set to 3,4 or 5).
Otherwise the sensor does not classify target types and as a
consequence is never able to trigger relay 2.

OUTPUT
REDIRECTION
Key 2: towards or away mode detection
Motion towards the detector triggers relay 1.

CONFIGURATION
Press the OUTPUT CONFIGURATION key (17).
Use the NUMBER keys 1-4 (1) to select the required output configuration :
Active
Towards or away mode detection only works if the detection
parameter is set to 1 (bi-directional). Otherwise the sensor
does not detect any motion anymore.
This works also if pedestrian rejection is enabled (immunity
parameter set to 3,4 or 5)

Without remote control all of the parameters can be set using the 2 push buttons.
Note: These two buttons are accessible from the sensor front cover with a small point.
• To adjust the sensor using the buttons :
Press and hold either push button for 2 seconds (until the LEDs flash) and then
release the button ;
• To end adjusting the sensor using the buttons :
Press and hold either push button for 2 seconds (until the LEDs stop flashing) and
then release the button;
Note : if no button is pressed within 20 seconds the adjustment session is
automatically ended.
• To reset all the parameters to the factory values :
Press and hold both push buttons simultaneously until the two LEDs switch on for 1 second (after 2 seconds).
During the manual adjustment session the red and green LEDs flash successively and continuously.
• The flashing number of the red LED provides the number of the displayed parameter (see next table);
• The flashing number of the green LED provides the value of the displayed parameter ;
Note: no green flashing indicates the zero value.
During the manual adjustment session :
• Each press on the right button increases the number of the displayed parameter by one unit ;
• Each press on the left button increases the value of the displayed parameter by one unit.
Note: When the maximum value or the highest number of the parameter is reached, it will return to its minimum values.
For example, to change the sensitivity from 7 to 9 and the rejection mode from “detection of all kind of targets in motion” to High
“Pedestrian/parallel traffic” rejection.
• Press any button for 2 seconds to enter the adjustment session and then release it.
• The red LED flashes once (1 = sensitivity) and the green LED flashes 7 times (sensitivity=7).
• Press the left button twice to increase the sensitivity from 7 to 9.
• The red LED still flashes once (1 = sensitivity) but the green LED flashes 9 times now (sensitivity=9).
• Now press the right button 4 times to move to function 5 (rejection mode).
• The red LED flashes 5 times (5 = rejection mode) and the green LED flashes once (detection of all kind of targets in motion)
• Press the left button 4 times to set the parameter to High “Pedestrian/parallel traffic” rejection.
• The red LED still flashes 5 times (5 = rejection mode) but the green LED flashes 5 times now (High “pedestrian/parallel traffic”
rejection).
• Press any button during 2 seconds to end the adjustment session and then release it.
