World’s First Automatic Door That Everyone Can Use Safely and Comfortably
Automatic doors of the past used rubber mats that people stamped on, which would activate a switch to open and close the door.
In 1980, Optex became the first company in the world to develop contactless automatic door sensors by applying far infrared ray sensors used in the medical and military fields. Optex automatic door sensors have now become the accepted global standard, and they are helping people to easily and comfortably enter and exit facilities and buildings.
World’s First Transparency Measuring Instrument to Check the Cleanliness of Water
Water is an invaluable resource for people everywhere. Optex was also the first company in the world to use sensors and automate the measurement of water transparency in lakes, rivers, and other bodies of water.
Now it is possible to use connectable technologies (IoT) to check the water condition in many different places, even while in remote regions, and keep track of our water environments.
New Vehicle Detection Technologies That Will Change Parking Lots Around the World
Loop coil sensors that are buried underground and detect the metal parts in cars are the main way of detecting vehicles in parking lots and other such places. At Optex, we have developed a new type of vehicle detection sensor that combines microwaves with ultrasonic waves. This industry-pioneering sensor is highly versatile and easily to install, and it can be used in place of the existing loop coil sensors.
