The X-Band Motion Detector from Parallax is a common ingredient in security systems and automatic door openers, and can detect movements in a room, yard, or even on the other side of a wall!

  • Power supply requirements: regulated 5VDC, 8mA
  • Communication: High (3.9V) / low (0V) signal oscillates with motion
  • Operation frequency of 10.525GHz
  • Trim potentiometer on the back for manually adjustable sensitivity
  • 4-Pin SIP header for breadboard or through-hole prototyping
  • Dimensions: 1.83 x 1.87 x 0.69 in (46.5 x 47.5 x 17.6 mm)

Absolutely no output from this module.

Tried adjusting sensitivity, checking test point with oscilloscope and nothing. Disappointed.
