Occupancy monitoring solutions help facility administrators to maximize the energy efficiency of a building while adding convenience for all occupants. Occupancy sensors for lights, for instance, save building occupants a trip to the light switch while ensuring unused spaces are not wasting electricity.
The types of occupancy sensors you need will depend upon your space’s configuration. While you’re evaluating our occupancy sensor products and accessories, take the time to explore both wall-mounted and ceiling-mounted options from Veris.
An occupancy sensor can use either passive infrared (PIR) or ultrasonic technologies to accurately detect occupancy and automatically switch room lighting on or off.
An occupancy sensor can use one or both of the above motion-detecting technologies to confirm occupancy, but where you place the sensor in the room will depend upon your application and obstructions. There are two main types of occupancy sensors you can deploy.
The Veris MSBPA1W Occupancy Sensor is an automatic occupancy sensor switch that detects motion with PIR technology to automatically control lighting for areas up to 1,000 square feet. With 180-degree motion detection and an adjustable time delay, it’s the easiest and most convenient solution for achieving energy savings.
MSB sensors fit in place of existing wall switches, connect to existing wiring, and are compatible with both electronic and magnetic ballast loads. You can also use the bypass button for “always-on” operability as needed.
The Veris MSCD2000 Occupancy Sensor combines passive infrared and ultrasonic occupancy technologies into a single sensor platform for ceiling-mounted applications. Detect motion and occupancy with up to 2,000 square feet of coverage and a full 360-degree field of view.
The coverage sensitivity of MSC Series sensors is adjustable from 60-100%. Daylight sensing capabilities also help your facility avoid any unnecessary lighting when there is sufficient ambient light — common in windowed areas. It’s easy to mount these sensors to drop ceilings and configure them for appropriate time delay and sensitivity.
