SIM Specifications

Avi-on’s Sensor Input Module or SIM, is a multipurpose Avi-on network node that can integrate third party analog sensors as well as Avi-on Direct Connect Sensors into the Avi-on network without being tied to a fixture controller.

The SIM gives third party analog sensors, as well as inputs from building control, fire, security, and other systems a simple and low cost method of triggering lighting actions in an Avi-on network. The SIM is triggered by a contact closure (open or closed momentary). The resulting behavior is programmed in the Avi-on network and is similar to the features available to Direct Connect motion sensors.

The SIM is also Direct Connect compatible, and is an ideal choice to use with Avi-on PIR or Microwave Direct Connect sensors for applications that are remote from a lighting fixture or power pack like stand alone motion or daylight sensor placements.


  • Simple low, cost integration of third party sensors on the Avi-on network

  • Direct Connect sensor compatible

  • 12-24VDC power and contact closure inputs

  • Small and compact size accommodates integration into multiple installation configurations

  • Optional antenna configurations available for mounting in metal enclosures
