The OPTEX concept

OPTEX develops and manufactures a variety of sensors for safer and easier automatic door use. We’ve created four categories of sensors for a wide range of applications described below.

Activation & Safety Sensors

This type of sensor combines the functions of activation, to operate automatic doors, and safety, to prevent pedestrians from getting caught  by the door. OPTEX Activation and Safety Sensors include a Presence Detection area to detect people who have stopped near the threshold of the door. The use of an active infrared Activation and Safety Sensor  provides additional safety around the door.

Activation Sensors

Activation Sensors can be installed in a door transom or the ceiling to activate (operate) automatic doors by sensing approaching people or objects. OPTEX has an array of activation sensors, including sensors that use infrared  or microwave technology. Take a look at the detection methods used in each sensor to decide which is best for your door environment.

Threshold Safety Sensors

Safety sensors are designed to prevent pedestrians from getting caught by the door. OPTEX Safety Sensors include a failsafe mechanism that allows the door to open even if there is sensor damage, providing an additional level of safety to your automatic entry.

Side Screen Safety Sensors

Side Screen Safety Sensors are placed at the rear end of the door  to prevent collisions during the opening movement of  the door. OPTEX Side Screen Safety Sensors incorporate the Presence Detection function to detect people who have stopped near  the door.
