Mounting with the Bracket

You can mount the Microsensor to fixtures with a knockout or to sheetrock and fixtures without a knockout.

Option 1: Fixtures with Knockout

Step 1: Connect the 8-pin end of the sensor cable to the sensor.

Step 3: Remove the  ½” fixture knockout.


Step 4: Insert ½” Chase Nipple to the inside of the bracket.


Step 5: Connect the bracket to the fixture by threading the locknut screw to the Chase Nipple.


Step 6: Align the sensor lens with the curved edge of the bracket, insert the sensor cable through the Chase Nipple into the fixture.

Note: Only when the sensor lens is aligned with the curved edge of the bracket, the sensor can rotate freely to the desired angle within the bracket.


Step 7: Insert the sensor cable through the Chase Nipple into the fixture, and slide the sensor carrier until it clicks into the mounting bracket.


Option 2: Sheetrock and Fixtures without Knockout 

Step 1: Locate the tab on the side of the mounting bracket and break away the tab.


Step 2: Mount the bracket to the fixture or drywall. For fixtures, use the metal-self tapping screws. For drywall, use anchor screws


Step 3:  Insert the carrier with the sensor into the bracket. Make sure the sensor wires exit through the open slot in the bracket.


Step 4: only for drywall - Insert the cable through the Wiremold conduit.


Rotating the Sensor

After mounting with the bracket, rotate the sensor to the required direction.

Mounting Without the Bracket

Step 4: Insert the ½” Chase Nipple through the knockout hole in the carrier.



Step 5: Insert the sensor into the carrier by pulling the cable through the Chase Nipple. Make sure the sensor lens clicks and is visible through the hole in the front.


Step 6: Slide to close the back cover.
