Connectivity by Panasonic Industry

Re-imagine connectivity. Rely on us.

Smart connectivity solutions from Panasonic Industry

Connectivity is at the very heart of modern life. Smart cities, smart mobility, smart buildings, smart homes: all rely on information which must be gathered and then transmitted. To enable smart connectivity, three key functions must be implemented:

Powering. Sensing. Transmitting.

Panasonic Industry has pioneered smart connectivity for over one hundred years, and now offers a wealth of innovative component technologies that are essential for state-of-the-art smart connected applications, taking energy-efficiency, sustainability and ease-of-application to the next level. Our components are made with a green impact – produced in facilities that support our sustainability goals, and which are on track to honour our commitment to achieve net zero CO2 emissions at all our operating companies by 2030.

Dream. Design. Connect.

You’ve got the vision, we’ve got the solutions. We assist customers as they journey through the design process. Our promise is that they can rely on us. Specifically, we’ll:

  • deliver high quality, innovative solutions that address their pain points;
  • provide local, expert support, regionally close to the customer but with global back-up.

Easy-to-use PIR motion sensors

PIR motion sensors by Panasonic Industry

Passive or pyroelectric infrared sensors are thermal detectors. They react to a change in infrared heat radiation in the environment – caused, for example, by a moving person (or object). Panasonic Industry’s latest PaPIRs comprises the EKMB device for battery-powered applications (1µA, 2µA and 6µA; digital output) and the EKMC part for wired designs (170µA; digital and analogue output).

Markets and applications include Building Automation, Safety & Security, Smart Infrastructure, Ambient Assisted Living, Space Management, Lighting Control, Intrusion Alarms, Street Lighting, Care of the Elderly, Hot Desking and Wake-up Sensor Systems.
