Improving the hospitality of automatic doors.
OPTEX’s VVS-1 embodies the perfect balance of safety and comfort.


VVS-1 Advantages

VVS-1 uses image technology to detect the walking speed and direction of those nearby, ensuring automatic doors open and close at just the right time for each walker. This allows not only for safe, comfortable passage through the doors but also helps improve energy efficiency through reductions in unnecessary openings/closings by keeping the automatic doors closed when pedestrians are merely crossing in front.

Energy-saving doors that do not open for cross traffic

Reducing the number of times the doors are opened unnecessarily allows for improved air conditioning efficiency by keeping the doors closed unless absolutely needed.

Safety and comfort through automatic door opening/closing according to the speed of walkers

VVS-1 is able to accurately recognize the speed at which someone approaches the automatic doors, allowing for faster or slower-than-usual openings for those walking. This ensures the optimum open timing for pedestrians and allows for safe, comfortable passage through the doors.

Easy Verification of Energy Efficiency via Smartphone

Automatic doors with conventional sensors

The sensor directs the doors to open whenever a person enters the detection area, regardless of the direction.

Automatic doors with VVS-1

VVS-1 detects the direction of those in the detection area, preventing the doors from opening unnecessarily.
