Our movement sensor tubes detect movement with a state-of-the-art infrared sensor. The movement sensor conserves energy by turning off the tube or dimming it when there is no activity. When movement triggers the sensor in the tube it increases to full brightness and consumes 18 watts of electricity. At 18 watts the tube produces about the same illumination as a 36 watt fluorescent tube. If no movement is sensed for a time the tube turns off again or dims.
The movement sensor tubes are available in a) an adjustable model and b) a factory preset model. Controls on the adjustable model allow the luminosity of the tube (during nil activity periods) to be selected. The tube can be set to remain off until triggered or at 10%, 20%,30% or 40% luminosity. After being triggered by activity/movement the tube becomes fully luminous for the period selected on the controls. Periods from 5 seconds to 1 hour may be selected. Further information is available in the Adjustable Movement Sensor LED Tube Product Document.
The factory preset model is set to the desired settings in the factory and these settings cannot be altered.
Replacing standard fluorescent tubes with LED movement sensor tubes can reduce electricity usage by over 90% when compared to fluorescent tubes.
Because sensor tubes run at low power for the majority of their working life, drivers and chips use less power and produce less heat. As well as saving electricity this extends the life of all components.
Our sensor tubes have been independently certified to comply with all Australian safety standards and also with mandatory electromagnetic compatibility testing (EMC).
Our standard 2 year warranty applies. Longer warranties are available.
