Proximity Sensor

Sensor_-_Proximity_QR.png

The Wireless Proximity Sensor can detect objects that are removed or placed in front of the sensor. When the status is changed, the sensor transmits a signal wirelessly with SecureDataShot™ to a Cloud Connector (Gateway) that again relays a message to a cloud service.

At 15-minute intervals, the Wireless Proximity Sensor transmits a message notifying the system that it is present and operational.

The Wireless Proximity sensor also has touch functionality for simple installation and use.

EU and US variants

This sensor is available in two variants, one for the EU and one for the US, due to different certifications, compliances, and wireless communication.

How does the sensor work?

The sensor detects when an object is placed or removed within 0-5 mm from its front. When the status is changed, an ObjectPresentEvent event is raised.

Presence not distance

The sensors do not measure the distance to an object; it only measures if an object is present or not within 5 mm.
