Ceiling Mounted Microwave Presence/Absence Detector

The MPAD-C-12-24V microwave presence/absence detector provides automatic control of lighting, heating and ventillation loads when connected to the iCAN™ network*.

The MPAD-C-12-24V detects movement using a highly sensitive microwave detector. This works by emitting low power microwave signals and measuring the reflections as the signals bounce off moving objects.

This unit can operate both in presence and absence mode as well as in response to a user defined daylight threshold level.

System timeout periods are adjusted in iCANsoft.

The MPAD-C-12-24V may be powered from the iCAN™ network supply.

*This sensor is intended for use with UIS, UIG-2, UIM and DALI-I-U devices on iCAN™ networks. Additional network commissioning will be required.
