An Available Lens Option For Any Application!

Panasonic Passive Infrared or Pyroelectric PIR Motion Sensors are available in a wide variety of current consumption options and offer both digital and analog output options. Both the EKMB and EKMC Series offer many lens options suitable for various applications, detection distance, ceiling installation height, field of view, and detection zone requirements. The EKMB and EKMC Series lens type options include Standard Detection, Long Distance, Wall Installation, Saturn Lens (Standard and Slight Detection), Wide Field of View, High Density/Long Distance, Slight Motion, Low Profile, Wide Area Detection, Ultra Slight Motion, and Flat Square lens types. Most lenses are available in white, black, or pearl white.

Offering simplified circuitry with a fully integrated Sensor design, Panasonic's EKMB Series requires consumption as low as 1micro A current, which is suitable for battery-driven wireless equipment. The EKMC Series is suitable for battery-free devices at a standard current consumption of 170micro A and is available in standard, high, and low detection sensitivities. 

The latest PIR Motion Sensor lens design type options include the new "Flat Square Lens" offering a low profile in various detection zones and the new "Wide Area Detection" Type offering a wide detection spanning over 10.8 meters as well as the new "Ultra Slight Motion" Type with improved sensitivity.
