NEMA 4 rated, microwave touchless actuator


BEA’s NEMA 4 rated MS09 is a touchless activation device with an adjustable detection zone designed for harsh and industrial environments.

The surface mount MS09 utilizes microwave motion technology to ensure consistent and dependable activation. Conduit connectivity ensures a watertight installation in harsh environments and wash-down facilities.

The MS09 detects moving objects such as a hand, pallet jack or forklift and is ideal for applications requiring a touchless activation method including hospitals, pharmacies, clean rooms and food services.
