Spice model for Pyroelectric Infra Red sensor?

    Does anyone have a model for a typical PIR sensor or indeed any advice as to
    how to create one from datasheet or measured parameters?
    Typically we would use a PIR such as this:

    Being able to simulate these devices would save much time breadboarding the
    early design iterations.
    Many thanks.

    Many thanks for your advice. I will try this approach.
    cheers.,

    Not knowing anything about PIR sensors, I had a look at Wikipedia, and
    they provide the following link:

    Lo & behold, the article has equivalent circuits!

    Thanks for this link. I think I'll try an empirical approach first though.
    cheers,
