Product Description

Similar in functionality to our original PIR Sensor with LED Signal (#555-28027), the Wide Angle PIR Sensor features a larger detection angle of 180˚. This makes it ideal in applications where users need to track movements across a large, open area.

The Wide Angle PIR Sensor contains a pyroelectric device that detects motion by sensing changes in the infrared levels emitted by surrounding objects. When motion is detected, onboard LEDs light up its dome as a visual activation signal, and the module outputs a high signal on its output pin.

Key Features:
  • 180˚ detection angle for widespread motion detection
  • LEDs light up the dome for visual signal of sensor activation
  • Typically detects people up to 30 ft away
  • User-selectable “night-time mode” for detecting motion in decreased lighting conditions
  • Adjustable sensitivity to tune for different operating conditions
  • 4-pin SIP package perfect for breadboard-friendly projects
  • Small size and mounting holes for easy concealment

Application Ideas:

  • Motion-activated nightlight
  • Alarm system
  • Holiday animated props
  • Voltage requirements: 3.0 to 6.0 VDC
  • Current requirements: 150 uA idle, 3 mA active (no load)
  • Communication: Single-bit high/low output
  • Dimensions: 1.42 x 1.42 x 0.79 in (36.0 x 36.0 x 20.2 mm)
  • Operating temperature range: 32 to 122 °F (0 to 50 °C)
