The OAM-EXPLORER is an infrared and microwave combination sensor designed for industrial door applications.
The OPTEX OA-6500 is based on active infrared technique, combining activation and safety into one sensor.
OPTEX OA-6000 detection area adjusts 160 vertically and 360 horizontally, detecting from high mounting positions up to 6 meters
The OPTEX OA-4500 is based on active infrared technique, combining activation and safety into one sensor.
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.
