This item is a pyroelectric sensor module developed  for human body detection.


  • Size: 32mm(L) * 24.30mm(W) * 25mm(H)
  • Automatic induction: People into its sensing range, the output is high; otherwise, output low.
  • Photosensitive control: (Optional, not factory-set): it will trigger only in the darkness.
  • Two triggering methods(Jumper sel ection):
  •     a. Non-repeatable triggering mode: after the sensor output high level with a period delay, automatically turns to output low level.
  •     b. Repeatable triggering mode: after it outputs high level, during the delay period, if there is presence of people, it keeps on outputting high level until people leave, then turns to low level.
  • Output type: high/low level output

  • About one minute initialization time is needed for the PIR Motion detector module. During this time, the signal triggered by the module is not stable. After one minute, module will be normal.
  • Don’t exposed the module to direct sun light or lighting, big wind, near a heater or air condition.
  • Don’t fix it at a place where there are obstructing material (eg. Glass, dense clothes) which IR cannot get though.
  • Don’t fix it in strong shock or vibration envirement
