MUNICH, 13 July 2015. Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems in Munich is introducing the MA Motion human detection proximity sensors for automatic doors or in security gates; detecting people in front of machines; automatic light control; and non-contact medical applications.

The sensors have built-in trigonometric background suppression, so they are unaffected by changing scenes or by people passing by outside the detection range. Also, changing light conditions and bright daylight measuring up to 30k lux at the sensor's surface will not affect the performance of the sensor.

The proximity sensors measure 10 by 20 by 12.7 millimeters. Users can adjust timing of the signals so that the beam frequency of each adjacent sensor will not interfere with the other.

For adjacent use or energy saving Panasonic also offers a version with external trigger input. MA Motion proximity switches have a detection distance of 5 to 200 centimeters and are available with NPN and PNP output versions in PNP or NPN open collector versions.

They operate from 4.5 to 5.5 volts or in a wilder voltage version from 5.5 to 27 volts DC. For more information contact Panasonic Automotive & Industrial Systems online at http://eu.industrial.panasonic.com.
