STEINEL announces a new high frequency fixture-integrated sensor module for commercial lighting control applications
The HFLUM2’s HF technology works by emitting high frequency electromagnetic waves (5.8 GHz) into the controlled area. Movement in the area causes a change in the waves’ echo, resulting in occupancy detection. The module mounts in either a ceiling or wall lighting fixture and provides 360 degrees of coverage. For convenience, the reach is adjustable from 3.3 to 26 feet.
Unlike other sensors on the market, the HFLUM2-WR can detect motion through many materials, including glass and the lens of a lighting fixture, enabling it to be completely hidden from view. It is suited for a wide variety of interior spaces. Additionally, when mounted inside sealed and gasketed IP65 fixtures, it can be used for damp and wet locations.
The HFLUM2-WR contains a unique lamp seasoning feature which provides a simple method for burning in lamps as recommended by lamp manufacturers.
