RC13 Exterior Motion Detector (High Performance)

RC13 Exterior Motion Detector (High Performance)
RC13 Exterior Motion Detector (High Performance)

Available Options

This high quality, weatherproof, commercial grade, quad element, digital motion detector is designed to be configured with many of the lighting systems that we offer. It is a 12/24 volt sensor, programmable with a fully adjustable detection from 26' to 97' (9,400 square feet). It has a coverage area of 70 degrees, 97' x 97' max. Its many features include customised optics, user/installer programming, temperature compensation, adjustable pulse count (sensitivity) settings etc. Because this motion sensor incorporates a Quad pyroelectric passive infra-red detector it is usually very stable in outdoor environments (when installed properly) and has a high degree of false trigger immunity. This component is designed for use with a solar energy system only and not for use with any other system or application.

Technical Specifications


Features two, dual element (Quad) pyroelectric passive infra-red sensor (two pairs of sensors built into one to help eliminate false detections).
With the two dual element sensors working together (side-by-side) both sensors have to trigger at the same time reducing the chances of a false trigger.


Detection area adjustable from 26' to 97' (8m to 30m).
Detection coverage is up to 9,400 square feet (900 square meters).
Coverage is 10-70 degrees 97' x 97' maximum (30m x 30m).
Fresnel Lens with 28 zones per pyroelectric sensor (56 total) and white light filter.
Dual axis allows lens adjustment up to 180 degree pan and up to 90 degree tilt.
Lens sections can be masked (if required) with masking foil supplied.
Customised Optics with double silicon shielded dual element (50,000 Lux reduction ability)
UV stabilized translucent outer cover.
Four solid state outputs available

One year warranty*.
Additionally, unlimited, lifetime technical support is available for all warranty registrations.

Please Note: This product is a special order and is non-returnable except in the event of a fault (during its warranty period) when the product, once returned will be repaired or replaced.

The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and usually set facing South at an appropriate angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location, power consumption (LED Wattage) and the total amount of hours of illumination time required. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. The illumination time is estimated and subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions & location of product etc. The illumination time of most solar lights can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Shorter illumination time due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. All solar lights must be used in a completely dark location at night time otherwise they may not illuminate. Nearby strong lighting sources or ambient lighting may affect the operation of a solar light. This does not define the product as being 'defective' or 'not as described'. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice. Descriptions, specifications and photographs are updated regularly but may not be current when minor changes to a product have only recently been made.
