- Any work on the main power supply must only be completed by trained specialists.
- The product must be installed in accordance with installation guidelines/standards specific to your country.
- Disconnect the 230V power supply before starting the installation process.
- As a precautionary measure, the power supply of the light should always be fitted with a (250VAC, 10A) type C fuse in accordance with EN60898-1.
- Faulty lamps may cause a short-circuit and thereby permanently damage the
- Disconnect power prior to replacing a lamp.
- To ensure the operational reliability of the detector, keep a minimal distance of
1m to lamps installed on the same height level.
- Lamps installed underneath the detector or in the detection area may disturb
the functionality. Keep the detector away from heating devices.
- In case of malfunction, such as continuous lighting, or false triggering please
refer to the troubleshooting section on page 7.
The detector reacts to the motion of heat (positive or negative in relation to the
environment). If a person approaches the monitored area, the device will turn on
the connected light automatically. If the person leaves the area, the light will be
switched off after the preset duration (short impulse, 10 sec. to 20 min.).
The connected light will be turned on only when the ambient light value is below
the adjusted value.
The optimal installation height is approx. 2 to 5 m. Standard mounting height is
2.5 m.
Wire the detector as follows:
phase / outer conductor (L) brown; neutral-/ neutral conductor (N) blue;
switching output / switched phase/ outer conductor (L’) red
The detector can be remotely* switched for 1 minute by phase interruption (power supply L for 0.5 sec.
Should a push button be used that is not installed next to the detector, interspersions may disturb this function. Proper functioning is subject to site installation
conditions and cannot be guaranteed.
In case of a disturbed push button function, a condensator or an RC element can
be connected in parallel (L to N).
The device is operational after approx. 1 minute from connecting to mains voltage. After this duration the detector can be programmed either by P-IR remote
control (*) or by manipulating potentiometers.
* The programming mode needs to be activated by remote control.
Potentiometer adjustments will only be accepted during a stable working state.
Important Notice
Pointing the detector in the sky can cause faulty detection. Potentiometers
pointing to the sky are not watertight.
Connecting electrical loads
High inrush currents will considerably shorten the lifetime of the detector’s in-built
relay. Please verify the technical data provided by the lamp or luminaires manufacturer concerning inrush currents, specifically with compact fluorescent, fluorescent lamps, electronic ballast, etc. in order not to overload the internal relay.
We recommend connecting a maximum of three to four motion detectors in parallel. If the number of switching cycles is above average or in the event of increased (inductive) loads, we recommend using the short pulse function on the motion
detector and switching the load via an external staircase timer switch or contactor.
Wiring diagrams
Standard installation. Optional push button to remote-switch detector for 1 minute
by phase interruption (power supply to L for 0.5 sec.). Keep wire as short as possible to ensure best results.
Several devices in parallel in short impulse mode (max. 3 to 4 devices) connected to a staircase timer switch.
Detectors connected in parallel, with additional wall switch to enable permanent
Installation of an RC element, (between neutral conductor (N) and switched
phase L‘) in case of interferences by fluorescent lamps (switch-off sparks) or by
several detectors connected in parallel (caused by capacitive current in the wires). Varistor (between neutral conductor (N) und phase (L)) to reduce mains
voltage peaks.
Accessory: 3-button remote control
AUTO = automatic operation (default)
ON = lights permanently ON *
OFF = lights permanently OFF *
* 6 hours duration, after which the detector
will go be back to automatic mode.
ON cannot be activated in short impulse mode!
Potentiometer controls overview
Red LED, flashing once upon detection, three times upon adjusting TIME or
LUX, or receiving a command from the remote control.
Accessory: P-IR
remote control
For functions please refer to separate
remote control manual.
Attention! Manipulating LUX or TIME VR during a stable working
condition, values will be stored and become valid. Any values adjusted
by remote control will be overridden. Either manual values or values by
remote control may be active, mixing is not possible.
SENS (sensitivity/detection range) adjustable by remote control
Detection range adjustment max = approx. 14 m frontal (walking person). Should
the detector be too sensitive (triggering without movement in the detection range),
the sensitivity/range can be reduced.
The timer determines for how long the lights will remain on following the last movement in the detection area. Choices are between short impulse (approx. 1 sec,
approx. 20 sec. / 60 sec. break, selectable by remote control only) and time delay
(approx. 10, 30 sec., 1, 2, 6, 10, 20 min.). Recommendation: approx. 2 min. in
staircases, 10 min. in restrooms, etc.
LUX (twilight sensor)
The twilight sensor regulates the operating threshold (light value) of the detector
determining when the device should be activated. Minimum value 5 lux (moon
symbol): The detector will turn on the light at night. Maximum value 2000 lux (sun
symbol): The detector will turn on the light during daytime as well.
Recommendation: approx. 5 lux in staircases, 200 lux in office spaces.
Detection range
The 200° detection range with 360° creep zone protection as well as the tight detection area allow for an optimal function. The range depends on the installation
height and walking direction (high sensitivity when cutting or changing a switching
Since the detector reacts to temperature differences between heat source and
ambient temperature, the response may vary depending on the installation site
(floor heating, hot environment, etc.).

Electronic Control
Induction in long installation wires (if several detectors connected in parallel)
may generate a considerable capacitive current on the switched phase. For
electric loads using only a small control current, such as staircase timer
switches, this may lead to permanent switching or general malfunctions. In
order to minimise the capacitive current, an RC element may be connected in
parallel to the load. Alternatively, a contactor, which is more tolerant to
capacitive currents, may be installed before the load. We recommend a
maximum of four detectors connected in parallel.
Do not dispose of electrical appliances in your waste bin, use
the collecting point of your municipality, or return the old device
to your dealer.
