Occupancy sensors are very sensitive PIR (passive infrared) motion sensors.
In many applications, 230V presence detectors with built-in relays are the quickest and simplest way to achieve major energy savings and comfort improvements with little effort.
It doesn’t matter whether you want to implement energy optimizations quickly and inexpensively in existing buildings, or whether you prefer to rely on proven 230V technology instead of complex and expensive smart home systems in new buildings: The ecos 230V presence detectors are the right choice. You will find reliable, small ceiling-mounted presence detectors with a good price/performance ratio.

Why is a high switching capacity so important?
Today, LED loads are predominantly switched. Unfortunately, these are often characterised by extremely high inrush currents. These current peaks usually exceed the value of the current during operation many times over.
The 230V presence detectors offer you an extremely high switching capacity due to the built-in high-performance relay. They therefore switch the connected loads directly. Phase L and neutral conductor go to the detector. The switched phase L’ goes from the detector to the luminaires.
Even “difficult” capacitive loads such as LED luminaires can be switched reliably in the long term.
All 230V EPV presence detectors are always supplied including a WAGO connection plug with strain relief and terminal cover. This makes installation easier for you in many cases because L, N and L’ are connected to the WAGO plug and not directly to the back of the detector. The ready-wired plug is then only plugged into the presence detector.
For the models with 1-10V DIM function, the plug set also includes a 1-10V WAGO plug.

|This will in many cases simplefy the installation because L, N and L are connected to the WAGO plug and not directly to the occupancy sensor. Only the wired WAGO plug will be inserted into the sensor. Apart from a good strain relief for the wiring it provides protection against touching the terminals.
For models with dimming function, the WAGO plug set also incudes a 1-10V plug.

Installation & Accessories (ceiling mounting)
Option 1: Flush mounting into false, partitioned ceilings (e.g. ceiling tiles)
This is the easiest and quickest installation option. Each sensor comes with a white plastic clip that fits onto the sensor body from behind. It then holds the sensor firmly in place. To accommodate a wide range of ceiling thicknesses, the ring can be placed onto the sensor body in both directions. This installation type requires that you can actually reach the rear of the sensor with one hand. This standard clip is always supplied with each sensor.

Option 2: Flush mounting in suspended non-partitioned ceilings, e.g. plasterboard ceilings
When you can not reach around to the rear of the sensor in order to slide the plastic holding ring on, the sensor can instead be mounted with an additional ceiling clip ring with two springs. The sensor is inserted into this ring following the electrical installation.

Option 3: Surface mounting enclosure
Where flush mounting is impossible, for example on bare concrete ceilings, the surface mounting enclosure is the best option.
