Wireless Wide View & Hallway
Occupancy Sensors

SWX-400-B SERIES
BATTERY POWERED

Overview

The SENSORWORX® wireless wide view and hallway occupancy sensors are a simple, yet reliable battery powered control solution. Preferred by contractors for their flexible mounting methods, SENSORWORX wireless sensors greatly reduce total installation time and wireless pairing fuss. Requiring just a few seconds per device, SENSORWORX wireless sensors can be linked to one or more wireless load controllers (such as the SWX-851 wireless wall switch, or a SWX-950 series wireless power pack). Additionally, these sensors can be configured to work in applications with other wireless or wired ceiling, corner, or hallway sensors to provide extended coverage in large or irregularly shaped spaces. As with all SENSORWORX products, the latest passive infrared technology and digital signal processing techniques are used to provide unmatched occupant detection performance and energy savings.

 

Basic Operations

Sensors detect movement in the infrared energy that radiates from occupants as they move within the device’s field-of-view. Once occupancy is detected, the sensor immediately signals a wirelessly linked load controller (e.g. power pack) to switch on or dim up the connected lighting. At regular intervals, the sensor will retransmit its latest occupancy status such that the load controller can keep lights on for occupants during brief periods of inactivity, while returning the space to an energy saving lights off (or dim) state once no longer occupied.

Applications

A single wireless wide view sensor provides an excellect soltion for a medium sized space like a conference room or small classroom. However, multiple wireless sensors can be easily linked to the same load controller(s) to provide coverage for larger spaces like an open office or large classroom. The wireless hallway sensor provides excellent coverage of hallways from one or both ends. Additionally, when linked to wireless wall switch load controllers (SWX-851) or to wireless power packs (SWX-950 Series) and remote wireless wall stations, these sensors can be used to meet ASHRAE 90.1, IECC, & Title 24 energy code requirements that require vacancy operation.

Coverage Patterns

WIDE VIEW 120°

PASSIVE INFRARED (PIR)

  • Small motion (e.g., hand movements) detection up to 40 ft (12.19 m)
  • Large motion (e.g., walking) detection up to 70 ft (21.34 m)
  • Designed for 8 to 12 ft (2.44 to 3.66 m) high mounting

Diagram reflects sensor in first position. Adjust angle downward if mounting above 10 feet or to decrease gap directly under sensor.

HALLWAY (LONG RANGE)

  • Designed for 8 to 12 ft (2.44 to 3.66 m) high mounting
  • Large motion (e.g., walking) detection up to 100 ft (30.48 m)
  • Detection occurs sooner when crossing coverage beams upon entry to a hallway as opposed to entering from the end and walking directly at the sensor

Battery Information

  • The sensor runs on one CR123(A) Lithium Battery (included).

  • Install battery prior to mounting sensor. Polarity is indicated on the battery compartment door.

  • If the sensor’s battery life reaches 10%, all wirelessly linked load controllers will blink lights on/off/on upon initial occupancy as a replacement warning.

  • Replacement batteries are available at most retailers or home centers where batteries are sold or from SENSORWORX.

Wireless Linking (Pairing)

Linking a sensor with a wall switch controller or power pack is quickly done via the following procedure:

Step 1. Enter pairing mode by holding down the wall switch controller’s (or power pack’s) button for 3 seconds until the LED starts alternating white then blue, then release.

Step 2. At the sensor, hold down the programming button for 3 seconds until the LED starts alternating white then blue. Releasing will link the sensor with any device in pairing mode (see note 1 below). The lights will toggle once as confirmation.

Step 3. Repeat step 2 to link another sensor or device.

Step 4. When all devices have been liked, close pairing mode on the wall switch controller (or power pack) by pressing the button 1 time. Pairing will be automatically closed after 15 minutes of no new devices being linked.

Note 1: When in pairing mode, the alternating LED colors on the wall switch controller (or power pack) will periodically pause and blink out the total number of linked devices. There will
be no blinks during the pause until the first device is linked.

Operation Notes

  • By default, every ~60 seconds the sensor transmits whether or not occupancy was detected during the previous period.

  • Referred to as the sensor’s “heartbeat”, this period can be reduced to ~30 seconds although this will decrease expected battery life.

  • If a sensor transmitted “unoccupied” at its last heartbeat, any new occupancy detection event will be transmitted immediately.

  • If a sensor transmitted “occupied” at its last heartbeat, new occupancy events will only be transmitted at the heartbeat interval, thus conserving battery life.

  • The wirelessly linked wall switch load controller and/or power pack maintains a master time delay that is reset every time a linked sensor reports occupancy. Lights will be switched off once all linked sensors have continously reported unoccupied for the duration of the time delay.
