The Ex-Mo Hazardous Area Motion Sensor is a microwave motion sensor that can transmit a control signal to hazardous area equipment such as overhead and bulkhead lighting, so that it is only turned on when motion is detected in the area.
As a result of this, operators gain multiple benefits:
- Safety: No need to manually activate lighting and other hazardous area equipment, reducing the risk of human error.
- Energy: Hazardous area equipment is automatically turned off when nobody is in the area, reducing carbon footprints.
- Cost: Less energy consumption reduces utility bills and less demand on equipment can reduce long-term maintenance costs.
Ex-Mo can operate on a variety of power supplies including 110V/230V alternating current and factory option 12V/24V direct current, with a 12V/24V control input that bypasses the detection sensor when required.
It incorporates an ambient light level sensor, allowing Ex-Mo to be configured to start at different light levels, and uses the Doppler principle for directional, focused detection over an average of about 20 metres.
