Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The present disclosure relates to a field of lighting, in particular to a pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control device and system.

BACKGROUND



[0002] At present, a pyroelectric infrared sensor (PIR) and a Fresnel lens are usually combined to sense human motion. The Fresnel lens has a special optical principle, which can generate alternating visible regions and blind regions in front of the pyroelectric infrared sensor (the visible regions refer to the regions where light can pass through the lens, and the blind regions refer to the regions where light cannot pass through the lens). When someone moves in front of the lens, the infrared rays emitted by a human body continually alternate between the visible regions and the blind regions, so that infrared signals received by the pyroelectric infrared sensor are input to the pyroelectric infrared sensor in a form of a strong or weak pulse. Thus the pyroelectric infrared sensor can sense the moving human body.

[0003] However, the pyroelectric infrared sensor products in the prior art generally have problems such as small sensing range, insensitive sensing action and the like. Even there are a small number of similar products with high sensitivity, they have a problem of high price. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a pyroelectric infrared sensor device to achieve a balance among the sensing distance, the sensing sensitivity and the product cost of the pyroelectric infrared sensor products.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0022] Hereinafter, exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure will be described in more detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. Although the exemplary embodiments of the present disclosure are illustrated in the drawings, it should be understood that the present disclosure may be implemented in various forms and should not be limited by the embodiments explained here. On the contrary, these embodiments are provided so that the present disclosure may be understood more thoroughly, and the scope of the present disclosure may be completely conveyed to those skilled in the art.

[0023] In order to solve the above technical problems, at least an embodiment of the present disclosure provides a pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control device, which includes a focusing component and at least two pyroelectric infrared sensors. The device can be mounted on and applied to the top of conference rooms, corridors and other places. Referring to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the focusing component 13 includes at least two curved surface structural portions 131 sequentially connected adjacent to each other (the focusing component 13 as shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 includes four curved surface structural portions 131 sequentially connected adjacent to each other). The focusing component 13 is rotationally symmetric along a central axis of the focusing component, and an angle is formed between a plane at which bottom of any one of the curved surface structural portions 131 is located and a plane perpendicular to the central axis of the focusing component 13 in a direction gradually away from the central axis. The at least two curved surface structural portions 131 sequentially connected adjacent to each other are integrally formed.

[0024] Each curved surface structural portion 131 corresponds to one focusing point. At least two pyroelectric infrared sensors (not shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2) are respectively disposed at respective focusing points, and the focusing component 13 is configured to focus external infrared signals onto respective pyroelectric infrared sensors. The at least two pyroelectric infrared sensors are configured to convert the changed infrared signals into voltage signals when any one of the pyroelectric infrared sensors receives the changed infrared signals, and then to control a switch status of a lighting fixture by using the voltage signals.

[0025] In the embodiment of the present disclosure, the focusing component 13 is inclined with the central axis of the focusing component 13 and forms a certain angle. The positions of the respective focusing points of the focusing component 13 are determined, and the respective pyroelectric infrared sensors are mounted on the respective focusing points, so that the respective pyroelectric infrared sensors and the central axis of the focusing component 13 also form a certain angle, and then overlapping regions can be formed between the detection regions of the pyroelectric infrared sensors. The detection points of the pyroelectric infrared sensors are more densely distributed in the respective overlapping regions, and the pyroelectric infrared sensors can sense a small amplitude of motion in the detection regions, effectively improving the sensing sensitivity of the pyroelectric infrared sensors.

[0026] In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the focusing component 13 is further configured to divide the detection regions detectable by the at least two pyroelectric infrared sensors into a plurality of visible regions and a plurality of blind regions, the plurality of visible regions and the plurality of blind regions are alternately arranged, so that in a case where there is a moving object in the detection regions, the infrared signals generated by the moving object is continuously switched between the plurality of visible regions and the plurality of blind regions, which are alternately arranged, to generate the changed infrared signals.

[0027] Continuing to refer to FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, in an embodiment of the present disclosure, the range of the angle formed by the focusing component 13 with respect to the central axis may be greater than 0 degree and less than 45 degree, or may be greater than -45 degree and less than 0 degree. For example, an angle of 6.6 degree or -6.6 degree can be preferred in the range of the angle. In a case where the degree of the angle formed by the focusing component 13 with respect to the central axis is 6.6 degree or -6.6 degree, the pyroelectric infrared sensors 12 located at the respective focusing points of the focusing component 13 has a better sensitivity to the infrared rays. In addition, the degree of the angle formed by the focusing component 13 with respect to the central axis is not limited in the embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0028] In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the curved surface structural portions 131 may be a plurality of convex lenses sequentially connected adjacent to each other, or may be a plurality of Fresnel lenses sequentially connected adjacent to each other. The specific type of the lens adopted by the curved surface structural portions 131 is not limited in the embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0029] In another embodiment of the present disclosure, the at least two curved surface structural portions 131 sequentially connected adjacent to each other included in the focusing component 11 in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2 can further be replaced with at least two focusing elements 111 (four focusing elements 111 are included in FIG. 3 and FIG. 4) included in the focusing component 11 as shown in FIG. 3 and FIG. 4. Shape of each of the focusing elements 111 is specifically referred to the schematic diagrams of the focusing elements 111 at different angles as shown in FIG. 5a and FIG. 5b. The embodiment will be described in detail below.

[0030] Referring to FIG. 3 and FIG. 4, the focusing component 11 of the pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control device 1 includes at least two focusing elements 111. The at least two focusing elements 111 are circumferentially arranged along the central axis of the focusing component 11, and the focusing component 11 is rotationally symmetric along its central axis. In the direction gradually away from the central axis, an angle is formed between a plane at which bottom of any one of the focusing elements 111 is located and a plane perpendicular to the central axis of the focusing component 11.

[0031] In this embodiment, the focusing element 111 is hemispherical structure. Each of the focusing elements 111 corresponds to one focusing point. The at least two pyroelectric infrared sensors 12 are respectively disposed at the respective focusing points, and the focusing component 11 is configured to focus external infrared signals onto the respective pyroelectric infrared sensors 12. The at least two pyroelectric infrared sensors 12 are configured to convert the changed infrared signals into voltage signals when any one of the pyroelectric infrared sensors 12 receives the changed infrared signals, and then to control the switch status of the lighting fixture by using the voltage signals.

[0032] Of course, the focusing element 111 can further be in other structure form, which is not specifically limited in the embodiment of the present disclosure. In this embodiment, the focusing element 111 may be a plurality of convex lenses sequentially connected adjacent to each other, or may be a plurality of Fresnel lenses sequentially connected adjacent to each other. The specific type of the lens adopted by the focusing element 111 is not limited in the embodiment of the present disclosure.

[0033] Next, the structure and function of the Fresnel lens will be specifically described.

[0034] The Fresnel lens was invented by French physicist FRESNEL, which was pressed using an electroplating mold process and PE (polyethylene) material. Thickness of the lens of the Fresnel lens can generally be 0.5mm, and a circle of concentric circles from small to large, shallow to deep are recorded on the surface from the center to the periphery, and the cross-section looks like sawtooth. If the ring lines composed of concentric circles are dense and dense, the Fresnel lens has a large sensing angle and a far focal distance. If the ring lines are recorded deeply, the Fresnel lens has a far sensing distance and a close focal distance. The closer the infrared rays are from the ring lines, the more concentrated the light passes through the Fresnel lens are and the stronger the rays are.

[0035] The circular lines on a same line of the Fresnel lens can form a vertical sensing region, and a horizontal sensing segment is formed between each of the circular lines. If the more the vertical sensing regions of the Fresnel lens are, the larger the vertical sensing angle is. The longer the lens of the Fresnel lens is, the more the horizontal sensing segments are, and accordingly the larger the horizontal sensing angle is. The more the amount of the segments of the Fresnel lens is, the higher the sensing sensitivity is, and a smaller range of movement of the human body can be sensed. On the contrary, the smaller the amount of the segments is, the lower the sensing sensitivity is, and a larger range of movement of the human body can be sensed. The blind regions are formed between the respective vertical sensing regions of the Fresnel lens and between the respective horizontal sensing segments. But the concentric circles of the different sensing regions are interlaced, thus reducing the blind regions between the respective segments. Because the Fresnel lens is restricted by the angle of view of the infrared probe, the vertical and horizontal sensing angles are limited, and area of the lens is also limited. The Fresnel lens can be divided into rectangular, square and circular shapes in appearance, and can be divided into single-region multi-segment, double-region multi-segment, multi-region multi-segment in function.

[0036] In addition, there are two main functions of the Fresnel lens. One function is to achieve focusing, that is, the infrared signals can be refracted or reflected to the pyroelectric infrared sensor, and the other function is to divide the detection regions of the pyroelectric infrared sensor into a plurality of visible regions and a plurality of blind regions. Each type of the Fresnel lens has a focusing point, and only the pyroelectric infrared sensor is placed at the focusing points to achieve the best focusing effect, thereby causing the sensitivity of the pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control device to be highest.

[0037] Referring to FIG. 6a, the pyroelectric infrared sensor 101 is mounted on the focusing point of the Fresnel lens 102, and the external infrared signals (the infrared rays 103) are refracted to the pyroelectric infrared sensor 101 through the Fresnel lens 102. FIG. 6b is a schematic diagram of the range of the pyroelectric infrared sensor horizontally sensing the infrared signals, and FIG. 6c is a schematic diagram of the range of the pyroelectric infrared sensor vertically sensing the infrared signals, and the vertical sensing range as shown in FIG. 6c is 10 meters.

[0038] In the following, the focusing component 11 including four focusing elements 111 arranged along a circumferential array of its central axis is an example to introduce the influence degree of different parameters on the sensitivity of the pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control device. The greater the sensing density of the pyroelectric infrared sensor to the infrared rays is, the higher the sensitivity of the device is.

[0041] FIG. 7c is a schematic diagram of the array after the horizontal distance between the respective focusing elements 111 is increased by 10 mm on the basis of the array structure of the four focusing elements 111 as shown in FIG. 7a, and FIG. 7d is a sensing density map of the pyroelectric infrared sensors (not shown in FIG. 7c) mounted on the focusing points of the respective focusing elements 111 as shown in FIG. 7c to the infrared rays.

[0044] In the respective focusing component 11 as shown in FIGs. 8a to 8c, the angle between the plane perpendicular to the central axis of the focusing component 11 and the plane at which bottom of the respective focusing elements 111 are located is 4.6 degree, 6.6 degree, and 31 degree, respectively. The contents as shown in FIGs. 8d to 8f are sensing density maps of the pyroelectric infrared sensors (not shown in FIGs. 8a to 8c) mounted on the focusing points of the respective focusing elements 111 as shown in FIGs. 8a to 8c to the infrared rays, respectively.

[0045] Parameter three, an offset direction of the focusing elements.

[0046] In the respective focusing component 11 as shown in FIGs. 9a to 9c, the angle between the plane perpendicular to the central axis of the focusing component 11 and the plane at which the bottom of the focusing elements 111 are located is -4.6 degree, -6.6 degree, and - 31 degree, respectively, and the offset directions of the angles in FIGs. 9a to 9c are opposite to those of the angles in FIGs. 8a to 8c. The contents as shown in FIGs. 9d to 9f are sensing density maps of the pyroelectric infrared sensors (not shown in FIG. 9a, FIG. 9b and FIG. 9c) mounted on the focusing points of the respective focusing elements 111 as shown in FIGS. 9a to 9c to the infrared rays, respectively.

[0047] Parameter 4, a position of the chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor with respect to the focusing points of the focusing element (selecting the pyroelectric infrared sensor with 2 chips)

[0048] In a case where the angle between the plane perpendicular to the central axis of the focusing component and the plane at which the bottom of the respective focusing elements are located is 4.6 degree and 6.6 degree, respectively, if any one of the chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor is located at a focusing point of one focusing element, the sensing density maps of the pyroelectric infrared sensor to the infrared rays are shown in FIG. 10a and FIG. 10b, respectively. If the other chip of the pyroelectric infrared sensor is located at a focusing point of one focusing element, the sensing density maps of the pyroelectric infrared sensor to the infrared rays are shown in FIG. 10c and FIG. 10d, respectively.

[0049] Parameter 5, the amount of chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor.

[0050] In a case where the angle between the plane perpendicular to the central axis of the focusing component and the plane at which the bottom of the respective focusing elements are located is 4.6 degree and 6.6 degree, respectively, if the amount of the chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor is two, the sensing density maps of the pyroelectric infrared sensor to the infrared rays are shown in FIGs. 11a and 11b, respectively. If the amount of the chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor is four, the sensing density maps of the passive infrared detectos to the infrared rays are shown in FIGs. 11c and 11d, respectively.

[0051] In summary, the offset distance between the focusing elements, the offset direction of the focusing elements, and the position of the chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor with respect to the focusing points of the focusing elements have no great influence on the sensing density of the pyroelectric infrared sensor to the infrared rays, that is, there is no great influence on the sensitivity of the pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control device.

[0052] The offset angle between the focusing elements and the amount of the chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor have great influence on the sensing density of the pyroelectric infrared sensor to the infrared rays, that is, there is great influence on the sensitivity of the lighting control device based pyroelectric infrared sensor. In a case where the angle between the plane perpendicular to the central axis of the focusing component and the plane at which the bottom of the respective focusing elements are located is constant, the more the amount of the chips of the pyroelectric infrared sensor is, the larger the sensing density of the pyroelectric infrared sensors to the infrared rays is.

Referring to FIG. 12, the pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control system 2 includes a lighting fixture 21 and the pyroelectric infrared sensor based lighting control device 22 composed of the focusing component 13 as shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2.
