MOVEMENT DETECTION IN CORRIDORS AND OPEN SPACES[ 16-03-2012 ]
Faster service through standardised offertingETAP is launching a comprehensive range of movement sensors for complex applications such as corridors and high spaces. We now have a practical and readily implementable solution for all special applications.
A sensor for every sort of application
Dimming or switching light based on movement detection is common practice in office buildings, but less evident in corridors or open spaces. Conventional sensors have a limited cone-shaped detection pattern and do not operate efficiently in such environments.
- In corridors, detection has to cover the whole length, requiring the use of sensors having elongated detection zones.
- In large, open spaces, e.g. industry halls up to 12 m high, sensors capable of detecting the faintest movement also at
great distances, are required.
Faster response to growing demand
The demand for light control in this type of environment is growing due to the increasing importance of energy efficiency. That is why ETAP has extended its standard range of movement sensors. ‘We now have practical solutions for all possible applications,’ explains product development manager Jurgen Lambrechts. ‘We can now respond faster to any requests, also for these demanding applications. The detectors are available from stock. All that remains to be done is to
configure the sensors to the customer’s requirements and integrate them into our industrial lighting lines.’
