Blue Microwave detection











This setting is used to define the orientation of the flow direction of people or objects.


In the next table “Presence timer” you can set the time according to the option previously chosen for the orientation.







Adjust the detection module up or down to determine how close the detection area is to the door.
Adjust the detection module to the left or right to obtain the desired side detection area.




Sensitivity is adjustable by adjusting the potentiometer on the sensor body.
When shipped from the factory, the sensor is at the maximum sensitivity value.

  1. Rotate the sensor module in the direction of the arrow while holding the module support with the other hand.motorline-RAP50-Microwave-Presence-Sensor-17
  2. Remove the upper part of the sensor towards you.motorline-RAP50-Microwave-Presence-Sensor-18
  3. Rotate the sensor module by 90° and insert it back into the support.motorline-RAP50-Microwave-Presence-Sensor-19

Ex: In the diagram below, a detection field is shown at a mounting height of 2.2 meters in the two width adjustment modes.




No LED on •   There is no current supplying the device;
•   The device is defective (send to technical services).
The door is detected  

•   Tilt the sensor housing out of the door;
•   Lower the sensitivity setting;

Object is detected too late •   Increase sensitivity.
