Product Details

The OPTEX AIR-SLIDE T offers a unique “spot” activation area that combines activation and safety functions into one sensor, all based on the OPTEX full active infrared technology.
For applications at, for example, hospital or kitchen doors, the AIR-SLIDE T can be used as a virtual pushbutton. The activation and safety detection zones are active as soon as the sensor is activated.
The sensor has a unique “BLUEZONE™” lookback function that provides additional safety in the threshold.


Pushbutton Activation Function

The OPTEX AIR-SLIDE T offers one narrow activation zone. By marking a zone on the doors or the wall the narrow zone can be used as a virtual touchless switch for activating the doors. The pushbutton function will minimize false openings, making it ideal for hospital or kitchen door applications. All rows are active as soon as the sensor is activated. The sensor will also work as a regular activation and safety sensor offering adjustable activation zones and full door safety and replaces additional safety sensors.

BLUEZONE™ Technology

The presence detection area in the AIR-SLIDE T consists of three rows: two rows in front of the door and one additional BLUEZONE™ row that looks into the threshold. The BLUEZONE™ activates as soon as the doors start to open and adds an additional row of active infrared. All three rows will be active when someone or something is within the threshold area for as long as the presence timer is set. When the area is safe the doors will start to close again. The BLUEZONE™ recognizes the door movement and will automatically shut off.

Easy Adjustment

Installation time can be minimized using the easily set switches and levers, meaning the sensor can be quickly adjusted for many different applications to modify the presence detection area.

  • The actual Secondary Activation area may become smaller depending on the ambient light, the color / material of the object or the floor as well as the entry speed of the object.
  • The sensor may not be activated when the entering speed of the object or a person is slower than 50 mm/sec. or faster than 1500 mm/sec.
