Gen 5 Sensors (SU-5E) FAQs


What are the best sensor mounting options for areas with no ceiling grid, such as, open office and hard lid? 

The Enlighted Hard Ceiling Mount Carrier is a flexible mounting solution for the following sensors:

Additionally, the following are some examples of ceiling mounting sensors.

Do you have pictures of the different ways your sensor is mounted?

Sensor installation guides let you know how the sensors can be mounted. Some specific mounting solutions (like CASE-SU-5E SU-5E Mounting Case Installation Guide) have their own install guides. 

Can we place the sensor in between a PMMA (methacrylate) panel and people?

No. The sensor should not be placed behind any plastic or glass material. The PIR (Passive Infrared) signal will not pass through those materials, and the sensor will be unable to detect motion.

How high can you install your sensors? 

SU-5E sensors can be installed at heights up to 15 feet. SU-5S High Bay sensors have a maximum height of 40 feet. Refer to the Sensor Spec Sheets.

Is there a line diagram for the Gen 5 2-wire sensor (SU-5E-FL) fixtureless sensor installation drawings?  

Refer to the Line Diagram - Sensor Grid - w-BZ-50 Power Pack.

Are the Gen 5 sensors Plenum rated?

Only the Micro sensor, 8-pin, (SU-5E-01), Low Bay Ruggedized Micro sensor, (SU-5E-LR) and Surface Sensor, USB, (SU-5i-USB) are plenum rated.
