ZMOTION Detection Module II



Motion Detection and Control with the ZMOTION® Detection Module II


Zilog’s ZMOTION® Detection Module II (ZDM II) is a complete motion detection solution ideally suited for applications that need to detect human presence. It is an excellent solution for detecting people as they approach entrances, kiosks, product displays, vending machines, appliances and advertising displays.


Used in lighting controls, access control, display systems and general-purpose proximity-sensing applications, it is also an easy way to add energy management capability to various applications such as vending machines and appliances.




The ZMOTION Detection Module II supports two modes of operation:


Serial Mode. Command, control and configuration is performed over a simple 9600bps asynchronous interface to an MCU that is already required for the application.

Hardware Mode. Stand-alone motion detection with analog inputs for sensitivity, 'active on-time' control and ambient light detection.


The Z8FS040 Motion Detection MCU included on the module is programmed with application software that provides these Hardware and Serial Modes of operation. This application software can be modified and replaced with your own custom application while taking full advantage of ZMOTION® technology.
