High Performance Doors are commonly found in fast-paced, heavy-duty industrial applications with considerable pedestrian, mechanized and forklift traffic. Activation and safety sensors from BEA are essential to maintaining the efficient workflow and safety in these areas. Combining sensing technology with a high performance roll-up door helps safeguard the door from traffic that could severely damage these costly doors.
By combining motion and presence into a single sensor, BEA’s dual technology sensing solutions streamline industrial operations by allowing people, forklifts and other traffic to move effectively, and safely, throughout a facility.
Motion sensors use microwave technology to create a reliable means of activation for High Performance Doors. These flexible solutions provide a variety of mounting height options to ensure adequate coverage of the door. For peak performance in harsh environments, these sensors are available in NEMA 4 Rated enclosures, as well as explosion proof housings.
Precise laser- and infrared-based sensors can be used to protect High Performance Doors and the traffic passing through and around them. A variety of sensors are available to meet the specific requirements of the door, regardless of its size or function. To ensure performance in any environment, NEMA 4 rated sensors are available.
Wireless transmitters and receivers can be used to enhance accessibility on High Performance Doors. These solutions are available in three frequencies (300MHz, 433MHz and 900 MHz) and eliminate the need to run wires, which reduces installation time, while providing greater mounting flexibility. NEMA 4 rated handheld models are available for use in industrial environments.
Logic modules can be incorporated into High Performance Door applications to provide additional sensor functionality. Common uses include the tie in of knowing act devices or signal lights.
Signal lights tied in with High Performance Doors help improve traffic flow and worker awareness in busy areas. Additionally, these lights are incorporated with an optional audible alert feature.
