What is a Motion Sensor?

A motion sensor is an electronic device that is used for motion detection. It contains an electronic sensor which quantifies motion and can either be integrated with or connected to other devices which alert the user of the presence of a moving object that is within the field of view of the sensor. Motion sensors are a vital component of comprehensive security systems for businesses and homes. An electronic motion detector contains a motion sensor which transforms the detected motion into an electric signal.

Types of Motion Sensors

There are several different kinds of motion sensors. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by supply voltage, output type, output current, operating temperature range, output voltage and packaging type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for supply voltage are 2.7 to 3.6 V, 2.3 to 4 V, 2.3 to 6 V, 3 to 6 V and 4.5 to 5.5 V. Output current can be as high as 30 A, with the most common sizes being 1 µA and 100 µA.

Motion Sensors from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a complete chip selection of motion sensors from several manufacturers that can be used as an LED motion sensor light, solar motion sensor light, indoor or outdoor motion sensor, motion sensor camera, motion sensor security alarm, wireless motion sensor, motion sensor flood lights, infrared motion sensor, motion sensor sprinkler, motion sensor night light, remote motion sensor or for any cameras, alarms or home interior or exterior lighting that might require a motion sensor. Simply choose from the motion sensor technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed in order to match your specific motion sensor application needs.

If you have a preferred brand, we deal with AMS, GE Measurement & Control, Panasonic Electric Works, Semtech, STMicroelectronics and Zilog, among other manufacturers. You can easily refine your motion sensor product search results by clicking your preferred motion sensor brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Motion Sensors:

Motion sensors can be found connected to a burglar alarm used in order to alert the security company or home owner after a motion is detected. Motion sensors can also be used to trigger a red light camera. Motion sensors are very commonly found in several commercial and domestic applications. Some of these applications include motion sensor street lamps, motion-activated outdoor lighting systems and motion sensor lanterns.

Choosing the Right Motion Sensor:

When you are looking for the right motion sensors, you can filter the results by various attributes with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search: by Output Type (Analog/Digital, Analog, Digital, Linear, Differential or Voltage), Output Current (0.05 µA, 1 µA, 100 µA, …) and Supply Voltage ( up to 10 V) to name a few. You will be able to find the right indoor or outdoor motion sensor, LED motion sensor light, solar motion sensor light, motion sensor camera, motion sensor security alarm, infrared motion sensor, motion sensor sprinkler, wireless motion sensor, motion sensor flood lights, motion sensor night light, remote motion sensor or for any alarms, cameras or home exterior or interior lighting requiring a motion sensor.

Motion Sensors in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of motion sensors required is less than a full reel, we offer to customers many of our motion sensor products in tube, tray or individual quantities that will help you avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers its clients a unique bonded inventory program designed to eliminate potential problems that could arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with long or erratic lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
