What is it?

A pyroelectric infrared (PIR) sensor that detects variations in infrared rays. All objects emit IR, and a PIR sensor detects a change of IR level in its Field of View.

PIR Sensor - What is it


What Problem Does it Solve?

As a human or animal moves across its FoV, the sensor detects a change in IR in each target zone (“+” and “-”).

Value Proposition

Panasonic New “Low Profile” PIR Motion Sensors consist of a lens to create various detection zones, an optical filter to block non-infrared light, pyroelectric sensing elements and an impedance converter to get an electrical signal.

In addition to this, Panasonic also integrates an amplifier and comparator circuit on the same chip all densely packed inside the stem block. The New “Low Profile” PIR Motion Sensors feature a one-chip ASIC design which is superior to discreet solutions by saving space, adding electro-magnetic shielding to all circuitry and cutting down on the number of components required.
