Easy Microwave Area Adjustment: Long or Short Distance Selector Switch
Improved Performance with Reliability from Microwave and Passive Infrared Integration
Optex Design and Innovation Provide High reliiability using Combination Technology
1. High Reliability
Ideal Detection Area
The MX-40PI creates an integrated detection area. This enables the microwave detection area to synchronise to the PIR detection area, achieving higher detection performance and preventing errors and false alarms.
Spherical Lens Design
With uniform distance between each lens segment and the pyroelectric elements, the spherical lens provides a precise focal length to each of the multiple lens segments. This enables each lens segment to precisely face its detection area and creates detection zones without distortion, achieving a new level in lens design precision. The lens has a unique spherical design which makes it highly resistant to damage and outside disturbances.
Noise Reduction Function
The Noise Reduction Circuit provides reliable performance against outside noise such as electromagnetic interference and noise caused from fluorescent lights. As a result, the possibility of false alarms is greatly reduced.
2. Easy Installation
Easy Microwave Range Selector
The MX-40PI allows for a simple two step adjustment. Setting the range selector to short or long range detection, according to the room size, makes adjustment during installation much easier and less time consuming.
Easy Wiring Knockouts
The PC board is removable for simple wiring. With the simple use of a screwdriver, a firm tap will easily remove the knockout.
3. Compact, Stylish Design
The compact and stylish body matches any interior design without disturbing the decor.

the optex motion is by far one of the most accurate sensors i have seen and i have seen many.
the detection pattern is very consistent with the pattern shown on the specs.
my german shepherd is about 70 lbs and i tried to make the optex detect her, i tried everything and not a single time so far she has been detected. i made her jump, run and even go up and down the stairs located 5 feet away from the motion and nothing!!! actually not even when both of my dogs (a small chihuahua) are playing around the motion detects them.
the sensor is mounted at about 7 1/2 feet high and i have a vent at about 11 feet high perpendicular to the wall where the sensor is mounted on and about 5 to 6 feet away from it, so far the optex has not caused a false alarm when the heater turns on and hot air comes out of the vent. As always your mileage may vary based on your particular application but i can testify this product pet discrimination capabilities are impressive in my particular case, if your dog is larger then your results may be different.
