MX-500 Dual Technology Motion Sensor Installation Instructions

Separate the sensor housings and remove


Printed Circuit Board (PCB).
FRONT HOUSING

Push outward on the PCB latch to lift the PCB


out of the housing.

Mount the sensor.


Break out the mounting/wiring knockouts and
mount the sensor in an appropriate location.
An ideal location meets the following objectives:
Allows a clear line-of-sight to all areas to
protect.
Does not directly face windows.
Avoids close proximity to moving machinery,
fluorescent lights, and heating/cooling
sources.
NOTE: maximum range is obtained at a
mounting height of 2.3 m (76).

Step 4

Walk-test the sensor.


After returning the PCB to the rear housing,
reassemble the sensor housing. Apply
power to the sensor and begin walk-test
when the red LED is off.
Walk across the detection area at the ranges
to be covered. The red LED should indicate
an alarm condition after 2 to 4 normal steps.
When there is no motion in the detection
area the LED should be off.

MICROWAVE SUPERVISION

DETECTION PATTERNS

If the microwave technology stops sending or


receiving signals, the sensor locks into an alarm
condition. The LED at the sensor, however, does
not light.

Wide Angle Lens


9m

If the microwave regains its signal, the sensor


(and LED) returns to normal operation.
NOTE: The MX-500 sensor should be tested at
least once each year to ensure proper operation.
