Occupancy Sensor Application Guide

Sensor Type Catalog Number Appropriate Application
Small Offices
Automatic Wall Switch WS3000 Small, Individual Offices. Sensors should have a direct, clear
front view of stationary occupants. Be sure sensors will not be
blocked by doors, filing cabinets, etc.
360° Ceiling Mount or Wide Angle CS1001WA1001 Small, Individual Offices where wall switch location is a problem.
for offices with general activities, the wide area unit will work
well placed in the corner. If there are obstacles present, the CS
1001 will provide 360° coverage from the center of the office.
Ultrasonic US1001 Offices with large obstacles or stationary workers. The US1001
covers up to 750 sq. ft., detects around obstacles, and is more
sensitive to small movements than PIR (Passive Infrared) sensors.
It should be placed close to the area of activity and out of view
of doors so waves do not exit the room.
Conference and Training Rooms
360° Ceiling Mount CS1001 Small Conference rooms where a ceiling mount sensor is required.
They should be located where they will have a clear view of the
entire room but cannot see out the door.
Automatic Wall Switch WS3000 Small conference rooms under 300sq. ft. To ensure detection at the
far end of a room, it is recommended that the wall switch sensor be
within 20′ of the farthest wall.
Ultrasonic US1001 Small conference rooms without moving equipment that may falsely
activate the sensor. The US1001 works well in a room up to
750sq.ft. Multiple sensors may be used in larger rooms.
Wide Angle WA1001 Medium size conference rooms (400-1000sq.ft.) without obstacles
that may block a PIR sensor’s view.
360° Ceiling Mount or Wide Angle CS1001 WA1001 Conference rooms 1000 – 2500sq.ft. Two WA 1001 will work well when
installed in opposite corners. One of the sensors should be placed
to immediately sense occupants entering the room. For rooms greater
than 2500 sq ft. use multiple CS1001 or WA1001 sensors in zones.
Lunch, Copy and Utility Rooms
Automatic Wall Switch/Ultrasonic WS3000 US1001 An automatic wall switch sensor will work well in rooms smaller
than 300 sq ft; however, if occupants spend lengthy periods of time
behind cabinets or other structures, an ultrasonic sensor is a
better choice.
Ultrasonic US1001 Due to the many partitions in commercial restrooms, an ultrasonic
ceiling mount \sensor is needed. Multiple sensors may be used in
larger restrooms.
PIR Wall Mount HS1001 In hallways without obstruction or where coverage masking is
required, HS1001 PIR sensors are perfect. When mounted between 10′
and 14′ high, they provide a coverage area of up to 10′ x 90′.
Sensors should be focused on areas where people will be entering
the space.
