FALCON APPLICATION NOTES Industrial Doors PRODUCT ID TECHNICAL Supply voltage 12 to 24 VAC / VDC: -5% to +10% SPECIFICATION Mounting heights (two different sensors) Standard FALCON: from 11.5 to 23’ Xtra Low FALCON XL: from 6.5 to 11.5’ Operating temperature range -22°F to 122°F (-30°C to +60°C) Degree of protection NEMA 4 Tilt angle 0° to 180° in elevation Dimensions 6.54” D x 4.14” W x 3.82” H Technology Microwave Microwave (Activation) Pattern Wide pattern (FALCON XL): 13’ (W) x 6.5’ (D) for a mounting height of 8.2’ Narrow pattern (FALCON): 13’ (W) x 16’ (D) for a mounting height of 16 Detection Mode: Bi-Directional: Uni-Directional Approach: Uni-Directional Departing Housing ABS and Polycarbonate Bracket Material Black anodized aluminum APPLICATION The Falcon sensor is a choice over inductive ground loops. Short installation time, and remote control NOTES programming make it very user-friendly. Sensor comes packaged with a 30’ 5-conductor cable. The Falcon has the ability to discriminate between people and vehicles. The sensor has the ability to ignore approaching or departing traffic. When the sensor is used in a “vehicle only” mode, parallel traffic rejection is inherent to the operation. The housing is NEMA 4 rated and is extremely reliable in abusive environments. May also be used in areas requiring NEMA 4, but not necessarily vehicular traffic. The mounting bracket allows for wall mount or overhead ceiling mount. Sensor should not be mounted to high vibration surfaces such as a door canopy that houses the operating mechanism. Sensor should not be placed near metal halide lights. For maximum sensitivity and function, sensor should not be placed behind anything. Remember. The Falcon is a motion sensor, and thus still requires some type of presence sensing device for most applications (ie. Safety beams, overhead infrared curtain – see also BEA, Inc. Microcell, FlexIR, Iris and DK12) The Falcon is also available in an explosion proof housing – Falcon EX.
