Pin Definition

  • 3V3: 3V3 power output
  • GND: Ground
  • OUT: Control output; when detect moving objects, it will output high level
  • VIN: Input voltage,4-28V
  • CDS: Enable control chip, lower than 0.7V, OUT will output low level all the time

Setting up

Power up the sensor by 5VDC using pins “VIN” and “GND”.

It can handle anywhere from 4v-28v in, which it then converts and outputs 3.3v to the 3V3 pin. This pin can be utilized for a multitude of tasks, such as an LED to indicate power, or even to supply power to a mini 3v based MCU.

*Notes– The right ahead of induction side should’t place any metal to block. The front/back side should reserve more than 1cm space

int ip = 8;   //Input Pin
int val = 0;  //Variable to store the value
int led = 13; // Led pin for Indication
void setup() {
  pinMode (ip, INPUT);  //Define Pin as input
  pinMode (led, OUTPUT);//Led as OUTPUT
void loop() {
     val = digitalRead(ip); //Read Pin as input
     Serial.println(val, DEC);
         if(val > 0)
            digitalWrite(led, HIGH);
            digitalWrite(led, LOW);
