Larson Electronics Releases Explosion Proof Motion Sensor

KEMP, TX, July 23, 2018 – Leader in industrial lighting, Larson Electronics LLC, has announced the release of an explosion proof motion sensor approved for Class I, Division 1 and 2, Class II, Divisions 1 and 2, and Class III locations. This 800-watt motion sensor has adjustable sensitivity and time delay after motion, able to power lights and other equipment in hazardous areas.

The Larson Electronics EXP-MS-N4X-AT-HV-V3 Explosion Proof motion sensor is approved Class I Divisions 1 & 2 and Class II Divisions 1 & 2 and the ability to power lights or other equipment within hazardous locations based on motion.

The EXP-MS-N4X-AT-HV-V3 is an explosion proof motion sensor from Larson Electronics that provides up to 15 feet by 15 feet of coverage when mounted at 16 feet high. This sensor features cutting-edge microwave sensors, which are known for high performance in unstable climates. The sensors send out waves, which are reflected by surrounding walls and objects. These sensors are not affected by line of sight which provides a wider and more accurate coverage of the area. These sensors can penetrate any non-metallic object including glass and plastic.

This explosion proof motion sensor operates much like an on/off light switch and has a normally open circuit when no motion is present. Once motion is detected the circuit closes and voltage passes through to power whatever light or piece of equipment the sensor is turning on. This device’s sensitivity is best adjusted by simply configuring the reach setting.

The EXP-MS-N4X-AT-HV-V3 is constructed of non-sparking aluminum and has a glass window where motion is detected through. The unit is wall-mounted via an integral mounting bracket that can be vertically adjusted after installment, allowing users to pinpoint the exact target area they wish the device to detect motion in. A choice of two, ½” or ¾” hub openings are located on each side of the housing for electrical connection.

This unit leverages cutting-edge microwave sensors to detect motion. When in use, the device sends out discreet waves that are reflected back from nearby walls and objects (not heat or light).

This explosion proof motion sensor is rated for Class I, Divisions 1 & 2, Groups B, C, D, Class I, Zones 1 & 2, Groups IIB+H2, IIA, Class II, Divisions 1 & 2, Groups E, F, G, Class III, Divisions 1 & 2, features IP66 rated and NEMA rated 3, 4, 4X, 7 (B, C, D) and 9 (E, F, G). The unit operates on 120V, 208V, 220V, 240V, or 277V AC electrical circuits. We also offer low voltage 12-24V AC or DC electrical systems.

“This motion sensor is perfect for turning on lights in manufacturing facilities, warehouses, and a variety of other flammable worksites due to the type of sensors it uses,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics LLC. “Microwave sensors are known for being very reliable in unpredictable conditions, which you would find in an explosion proof industrial environment. They provide more accurate coverage and detect objects, whereas traditional infrared motion sensors can only detect heat and light.”
