A BASIC DESCRIPTION
GENERAL
The PIRAMID XL2 (Passive Infrared And
Microwave Intrusion Detector) is an outdoor dual
technology sensor designed to provide volumetric
protection in a wide variety of outdoor applications.
The sensor uses the unique combination of
“Stereo Doppler” Microwave and Passive Infrared
technologies.
PIRAMID XL2 is configured for “And Gate”
operation; i.e. both technology portions must activate
simultaneously for the sensor to alarm. The microwave
portion detects the motion of the intruder, whereas the
passive infrared portion detects a change in infrared
radiation. When both technologies activate at the
same time, the sensor initiates an alarm condition.
For optimum performance it is best to use the
PIRAMID XL2 as a motion sensor to protect specific
assets and strategic areas. Generally the sensor is not
used along a perimeter fence area like an outdoor P.E.
Beam unless in a proprietary system with “on-site”
response or with video verification.

INSTALLATION
MOUNTING PIRAMID XL2
1. The PIRAMID XL2 comes equipped with a wall
mount bracket. Install the wall mount bracket
where the sensor will be located. Ensure that it is
firmly mounted and free from extreme vibration.
Avoid visual obstructions that may block the
sensor’s field of view.
UNIVERSAL POLE MOUNT
2. For a pole mount installation, PROTECH
offers two universal pole mounts as accessory
items. Model PH-4 is suitable for poles with a
diameter of 11/2” to 41/2”(3.8cm to 11.4cm). Model
PH-4A is suitable for poles with a diameter of
41/2” to 81/2” (11.4cm to 21.6cm). The wall mount
bracket mounts to the PH-4/PH-4A Universal Pole
Mount.
BEST MOUNTING LOCATION
3. The sensor should be mounted so that the most likely
direction of travel by the intruder is toward or away
from the sensor.
4. PIRAMID XL2 provides good transverse detection
capability only when adjusted in the higher sensitivity
settings (10, 9 and 8). Operating the sensor in these
higher settings may increase nuisance alarms. Therefore,
to enable effective detection in the lower sensitivity
settings (1, 2, 3, etc.), it is best to locate the sensor to
detect approaching and receding movement.
5. Remove the Microwave Electronic Assembly from
the Housing/Shroud Assembly by loosening the four
screws on the sensor’s faceplate. Attach the housing/
shroud assembly to the mounting bracket using the
hex head bolt provided.
MOUNTING HEIGHT
6. The optimum mounting height of the sensor can vary
considerably depending on the model’s lens module,
security requirement and environmental conditions.
Refer to the table below for recommended
mounting heights.

WIRING AND PRELIMINARY
SET-UP
MINIMUM WIRE SIZE:
1. With the housing/shroud assembly attached to the
mounting bracket, feed the wire through the conduit
connector into the sensor housing. For power
connections, PROTECH recommends a minimum 18
AWG wire for wire runs greater than 50 ft (15.5m).
2. Remove terminal strip from the microwave electronic
assembly and wire according to the diagram below.

3. Observe the correct polarity at the power terminals.
SHIELDED CABLE RECOMMENDED
4. For best shielding from Radio Frequency Interference
(RFI) and transients due to lightning or electrostatic
discharge, PROTECH highly recommends the use of
shielded cable. When shielded cable is used, the cable
shield (and/or drain wire) should be connected to
Terminal 1 (HOUS’G GND) at each sensor. Terminal
1 is connected by a spring contact to the housing, but
is not otherwise connected to the electronic circuitry.
The other end of the shield should be connected to
a common ground (generally the same ground used
for the power supply or control unit). Regardless of
the type of cable used, Terminal 1 (HOUS’G GND)
should always be connected to a good earth ground.
CABLE HOLDERS
5. After wiring the removable terminal strip, plug it
back into the Microwave Electronic Assembly. Route
cable under “cable holders” which are provided on
the circuit board.

6. Slide the Microwave Electronic Assembly back into
the housing, pulling the excess wire out of the rear
of the housing. Tighten the four-faceplate screws
uniformly to obtain a weather seal between the front
bezel and the housing gasket.
7. Make sure the tamper switch actuator arm is fully
depressed when it contacts the rear of the housing
for a NORMALLY CLOSED contact on terminals
8 and 9.
8. In most installations, it is best to aim the sensor at
a slightly downward angle as this minimizes the
small “dead zone” directly beneath the sensor. This
also helps to terminate the sensor’s protection
pattern within the protected area.
9. Apply power (8.5 to 20 VDC) to terminals 2(-)
and 3 (+) and allow at least 1 minute of
stabilization time before walk testing.
10. Check the LED On/Off Switch to verify that it is
in the “ON” position. The LED On/Off Switch
controls the “Walk Test” LED’s and the Voltage
OK LED.
11. Observe the Green Voltage OK LED on the
printed circuit board to verify that it is “ON”. The
Voltage OK LED will TURN ON continuously
when the input voltage reaches 10.5 VDC and will
TURN OFF when the input voltage drops below
9.5 VDC.
WALK-TESTING
1. The Analytic Walk Test LED’s are very difficult
to see in bright sunlight. Therefore, PROTECH
highly recommends that the XL-SOUNDER
Audible Tester be utilized for sensor walk-test.
The XL-SOUNDER will enable a single installer
to walk-test the sensor and will greatly reduce
installation time!
HELPFUL HINTS FOR WALK TESTING
2. It is best to start with range and sensitivity settings
at maximum. Loosen swivel locking screw just
enough so that the sensor will be held in place but
can be aimed slightly upward and downward in
approximately 1 degree increments. It is best to locate
the IR protection pattern first. The IR sensor portion
is most sensitive to movement across the pattern and
5
therefore walk testing should entail taking a few
steps across (transverse) the area at the maximum
desired range. Once the desired IR protection
pattern is located, tighten the swivel-locking
screw to lock the sensor in place. The microwave
protection pattern overlaps the passive infrared
pattern and should be present.
Now that the proper sensor alignment is locked
in place, try to reduce the sensitivity first. The lower
the setting, the better the false alarm rejection.
Next, try to reduce range. The “Rule of thumb” is to
adjust the sensor’s range and sensitivity to the lowest
possible settings to attain the desired coverage.
IMPORTANT: The most critical adjustment
for false alarm rejection is the SENSITIVITY
CONTROL. Settings of 1, 2, 3, and 4 are best
for false-alarm-free performance.
SENSOR ADJUSTMENTS
The key to success in many applications is the
proper adjustment of the sensor’s Range Control
Switch, Sensitivity Control Switch and Bird/Animal
Control Switch. Note: Refer to diagram on Pages
13 and 14 for detail.
RANGE CONTROL SWITCH
The Range Control Switch adjusts the overall
size of the sensor’s detection area. It may be necessary
to set the sensor at the higher settings (70, 80, 90
and 100 percent of maximum) to attain the desired
protection pattern coverage.
Note: Although the sensor can be set at
maximum range and operate properly, the “rule of
thumb” is to set at the lowest setting to attain the
desired range.
SENSITIVITY CONTROL SWITCH
The Sensitivity Control Switch adjusts the
amount of movement required for an alarm condition.
The Sensitivity Control Switch is very precise as the
PIRAMID XL2 can determine the exact “distance
in inches (cm.)” that an object must move to initiate
an alarm. The following table shows the amount of
movement required based on the switch setting.

Enhanced Immunity Setting - Often used as
a last resort to eliminate nuisance alarms caused by
an abundance of birds and animals in the protected
area. The use of a Pet Alley Lens Module (Lens
A-Pet, Lens B-Pet and Lens C-Pet) in conjunction
with the Enhanced Immunity Setting would also be
highly recommended in animal prone applications.
In the Enhanced Immunity Setting, overall detection
sensitivity of the PIRAMID XL2 sensor will be
reduced approximately 20%.
REQUIRED
IN INCHES / CM
VERY IMPORTANT:
The most critical adjustment for false alarm
rejection is the SENSITIVITY CONTROL.
Settings of 1, 2, 3 and 4 are best.
The PIRAMID XL2 provides good detection in
all ten sensitivity settings with respect to movement
toward or away from the sensor. Keep in mind that
in the lower sensitivity settings (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5)
transverse detection (“crosscatch”) is very sluggish.
Therefore, it is important for the sensor to be located
so that the most likely point of travel is slightly
toward or slightly away from the sensor.
Caution: In the Enhanced Immunity Setting the
speed of detection is significantly reduced. Therefore,
the PIRAMID XL2 may not detect an intruder or a
vehicle traveling at a rate of speed above 31/2 Feet (1m)
Per Second.
WALK-TEST PROCEDURE
FOR ANALYTIC WALK TEST LED’s
1. Remain motionless outside the protection area
until both Green LED’s are on steadily.
2. Walk into the surveillance area while observing
all LED’s.
Proper mounting location of the PIRAMID
XL2 will enable lower sensitivity settings. Lower
sensitivity settings will enhance false-alarm-free
performance.
3. Both Green LED’s turn off (responding to
motion and changes in infrared radiation)
followed by the Microwave Yellow LED and the
Passive Infrared Red LED turning on.
Note: Each sensor should be periodically
walk-tested to ensure that the required detection
is attained.
4. Master Alarm Red LED in the center of
the sensor faceplate turns on when both the
Microwave Yellow LED and Passive Infrared Red
LED are on simultaneously.
ENHANCED BIRD/ANIMAL
IMMUNITY CONTROL SWITCH
A two-position switch adjusts the sensor’s
immunity to birds and small animals. Note: The
PIRAMID XL2 sensor is shipped from PROTECH
in the Standard Immunity Setting.
Standard Immunity Setting - Offers excellent
immunity with respect to birds and small animals
and is the best setting in most applications. The
PIRAMID XL2 sensor will provide good nuisance

SOUNDER INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
USE AS A MOTION SENSOR NOT AS A
PERIMETER SENSOR
DON’T use the PIRAMID XL2 as a perimeter
sensor. You will have to adjust the sensor’s sensitivity
at a very high setting for good transverse detection.
The sensor is likely to experience nuisance alarms
when adjusted in the higher sensitivity settings.
1. Plug Sounder into the receptacle next to the Master
Alarm LED in the upper center of the sensor’s
faceplate. Note: The XL-Sounder can be conveniently
clipped to the sensor’s Weather Shroud.
2. Sounder activates immediately upon being plugged
into the receptacle.
SOUNDER WALK-TEST FUNCTION
The sounder provides three distinct sounds to
assist in the walk test procedure.
Sounder Silent = Neither Technology Portion in Alarm
Slow Beep = Passive Infrared Technology Only in Alarm
Fast Beep = Microwave Technology Only in Alarm
Continuous Tone = XL Sensor in Alarm (Both PIR and
MW Technologies in Alarm Simultaneously)
1. When the Passive Infrared Sensor Portion alarms you
will hear a slow “beep” at a rate of approximately 2 beeps
per second. The slow beep will continue only while the
passive infrared sensor remains in alarm. The slow beep
will stop when the passive infrared sensor resets.
DO use the PIRAMID XL2 as a motion sensor
with a “wide field of view” lens module. You will be
able to adjust the sensor’s sensitivity setting in the
lower positions to help ensure virtually false-alarmfree performance.
2. When the Microwave Sensor Portion alarms you will
hear a fast “beep” at a rate of approximately 8 beeps
per second. The fast beep will continue only while the
microwave sensor portion remains in alarm. The fast
beep will stop when the microwave portion resets.
3. When both the passive infrared and microwave sensors
are in alarm simultaneously, you will hear a continuous
tone indicating the sensor is in alarm. Unplug and
remove sounder after walk testing is complete.
Note: PROTECH highly recommends driving
a large vehicle around the outside perimeter at less
than 10 MPH to ensure the protection pattern is
contained within the protected area.
9
10
DO mount on a solid wall or pillar. If mounting
on a metal building, be sure to find a support
structure to ensure a vibration free mounting.
11
DON’T leave garbage cans and trash bins in the sensor’s
field of view, as they are known to attract animals and birds.
Small animals and birds close to the sensor appear as much
larger targets and are difficult for the sensor to ignore.
BEWARE OF GARBAGE ATTRACTING ANIMALS AND BIRDS
DO store garbage cans and trash bins out of
the sensor’s field of view.
CHOOSE A SOLID MOUNTING BASE
FOR THE SENSOR
DON’T mount the sensor on a surface prone to
extreme vibration, such as chain link fence without
support or on the flimsy siding of a metal building.

DO patch holes and secure
the fence so animals do not have
free access into the protected
area. Also, try to eliminate large
gaps under gates that enable easy
animal entry.
DON’T ignore openings
in the fence or gate areas that
can serve as easy entry for
animals (dogs, cats, raccoons,
etc.) into the protected area.

21
22
DO mount fairly high if animals are likely
to be present on occasion.
DON’T mount the sensor
too low on the wall if animals will
be present. At a low mounting
height the protection pattern
contacts the ground very close to
the sensor where a small animal will
appear to be large to the sensor.
BEWARE OF ANIMALS IN
THE PROTECTED AREA
OR
DO use “Pet Alley” Lens Modules (Lens-A-PET,
Lens-B-PET, Lens-C-PET) and mount at 4-6 ft. (1.2-1.9m)
Note: Pet alley lens modules do not have infrared protection
zones that contact the ground.
23
24
DO mount the sensor where
the sensor’s weather shroud can
route the rain away from the
sensor’s face or DO mount the
sensor under the roof eaves only
if the roof has a rain gutter.
DON’T mount the sensor
under the eaves (overhang) of a
non-guttered roof. During heavy
rains the runoff directly in front
of the sensor’s face can create
nuisance alarms.
USE CAUTION WHEN
MOUNTING UNDER THE
EAVES OF A ROOF
25
26
DO aim the sensor
downward so that the protection
pattern coverage terminates into
the ground within the protected
area. Carefully test by driving a
vehicle (under 10 mph / 16 kph)
around the perimeter to ensure the
protection pattern is contained
within the protected area.
DON’T point the sensor
so that it may detect a large
object (car, bus, truck, train, etc.)
outside of the protected area.
Remember that the sensor can
detect a large object like a truck
or bus at distances approaching
500 ft. (152.4m).
BEWARE OF LARGE
OBJECTS OUTSIDE OF
THE PROTECTED AREA
INSTALLATION CHECK LIST
❑ Is each sensor individually zoned? More
than one sensor on an alarm zone should not be
considered or tolerated! More than one sensor
on one zone makes it virtually impossible to
troubleshoot intermittent problems. Please advise
your installation supervisor of PROTECH’s position
on this very important matter before proceeding
with the installation.
❑ Is the Green Voltage OK LED on? The
Voltage OK LED verifies that proper input voltage
is provided at the sensor. It is best to view the Voltage
OK LED with the AC power disconnected and the
sensor powered by standby battery only. This would
be worst case condition and deliver lowest voltage
to sensor.
❑
Did you realize the SENSITIVITY
CONTROL rotary switch is the most critical
field setting for false-alarm-free performance?
PROTECH recommends a field setting of 1, 2, 3,
4, or 5 in commercial applications. A field setting
of “1” will provide the greatest false alarm rejection
performance.
❑
Did you realize the RANGE CONTROL
rotary switch adjusts the overall size of the sensor’s
detection area? Generally, to attain the maximum
specified range of the sensor it will be necessary to
set the RANGE CONTROL rotary switch near the
maximum range settings of 80, 90, or 100 percent
of maximum.
❑
Did you angle the sensor downward to
terminate the protection pattern into ground? Did
you test the perimeter with a vehicle to ensure the
sensor is not seeing a large object (bus, truck, train,
etc.) outside the protected area?
❑
TROUBLESHOOTING
The sensor does not work; the LED’s do not come on.
1. Check input voltage at terminals 2 (-) and 3 (+) or
view the Voltage OK LED on PC board to verify
that it is on. You must deliver 8.5 to 20 VDC at the
input terminals.
2. Check to see if the LED switch is in the “ON”
position.
The sensor Alarm LED is on constantly and does not reset.
1. If input voltage is OK, return sensor to manufacturer.
You cannot attain the maximum specified range of the sensor.
1. Refer to “Helpful Hint for Walk-Testing” in the WALK
TESTING section of this booklet.
2. If the passive infrared portion does not detect as
specified, check sensor alignment, as the proper aiming
angle is very critical.
3. If the microwave portion does not detect as specified,
check Range and Sensitivity Control.
4. Check to see if you have the proper Lens Module.
5. Are large objects blocking the protection pattern? If
the sensor only sees 1/2 of an intruder, it is likely only
1/2 the expected range will be attained.
You are experiencing false alarms.
1. Check input voltage as described in item 1. It is best to
check voltage with primary power disconnected from
the main power source and the sensor operating on
standby battery only. This should be the worst case or
lowest voltage situation.
2. Check Sensitivity Control. PROTECH recom-mends
a setting of 1, 2, 3, 4, or 5 for commercial/industrial
applications.
3. Is the sensor angled downward to terminate the
protection pattern into the ground? Did you drive a
vehicle along the perimeter to ensure the sensor is not
seeing a large object (bus, truck, train, etc.) outside the
protected area? Remember that the sensor will see a
man at 100 ft. (30.5m) but may see a bus at 500 ft.
(152.4m) PROTECH highly recommends that the
XL-SOUNDER be utilized for walk-testing.
4. Did you consider mounting the sensor higher so
that a small animal (cat, rat, rabbit, bird, etc.) on the
ground is too small to detect. Or have you considered
using “Pet Alley” Lens Modules and mounting lower
(4-6 ft.)?
Did you consider a higher mounting
height so that a small animal (cat, rat, rabbit, bird,
etc.) on the ground is too small to detect? Or have
you considered using “Pet Alley” Lens Modules?
Please refer to the specifications on page 3.
Note: If all of the above has been checked out and
the problem persists, please contact PROTECH
Technical Support.
