We focus on the areas that others do not,
so we can provide our customers with even greater satisfaction than they expect.
Approaching manufacturing with the idea of doing "Something Different" can create products and services with a clear competitive edge.
Optex is generating innovation and operating businesses that create value for our customers.
Optex has a thorough knowledge of the cultures and business customs of countries and industries worldwide, and our products conform to over 200 types of laws, regulations, and standards.
The Origin of Optex—Infrared
In 1980, Optex became the first company in the world to commercialize automatic door sensors by applying far infrared rays used in the medical and military fields. So you could say infrared is the origin of Optex.
Optex has developed original sensing algorithms that control physical changes. These algorithms ensure reliable and stable detection even in environments filled with numerous factors that may interfere with sensor-based detection, such as sunlight, plants, swaying curtains, and radio waves.
Optex owns a wide range of sensing technologies, which it uses to analyze the various analog signal information specific to each user environment. These technologies extract only the required information, and combine multiple detection formulas to enhance the performance of devices, equipment and systems.
Reliability is the definitive value of all products, and performance is how a product satisfies a customer’s needs. To achieve these two key elements, we conduct product evaluation tests and endeavor to create reliable products that customers around the world can use.
