PIR (Passive Infrared or Pyroelectric) Motion Sensor from Panasonic has industrial grade, highly reliable and precise and accurate sensor. The Panasonic PIR motion sensor has three series that suit your requirements. The Panasonic EKMB (WL) has a low current consumption that can power on a batteries.  The EKMC(VZ) for general use, and AMN (NaPiOn) a traditional type that has digital and analog type sensor. This sensor has crucial advantages over conventional PIR sensor. This device is suitable use for IOT internet of things, Office Automations, Bending Machines, Printers, Building Automations, Lightning Systems, Lightning Controls, Air Purifier, Automatic Toilets, HVAC (Heater, Ventilator or Air Conditioner Systems), Home Appliances, HEMS (Home Energy Management Systems), Digital Signage, Security Equipment’s. Etc. Note: If you want to use digital output you need to place a pull-down resistors. You need to calculate the VOUT so that the output current is lower than or equal to 100 μA, you can use 50K or more as a guide line. However if the output current is more than 100 μA this may cause false alarms. Please refer to the datasheet for more technical details.
