Comus Vibration Sensor (Non Mercury)

<p>This range of high sensitivity motion and vibration sensors have been designed to easily be used with both analogue and digital circuitry. When disturbed, the sensor reacts by a fleeting change of state of the switch contact. The time taken to settle depends on the amount of energy absorbed by the device.</p>

Q. what distance can the motion sensor can sense to?
A. Hi, thank you for your question. The motion the record is referring to is vibration there is no distance involved as such apart from vibration they detect before they will switch.
