Train, Tram & Subway Doors enable entry and exit from a train, tram or subway car; as well as the movement between multiple cars. BEA sensors can be used to enhance safety on these doors in busy terminals and on cars, preventing the automatic door from shutting on a person not fully boarded. When a train, tram or subway car approaches a stop, sensors can also be used to detect pedestrians standing outside and signal the door to open.
The activation of Train, Tram & Subway Doors is achieved through the use of microwave- and infrared-based sensors that accurately detect pedestrians and signal the door to open. These compact sensors integrate seamlessly with the door operator and are designed to withstand environmental challenges such as vibration, debris build-up and changing weather conditions.
Presence detection is a critical aspect of Train, Tram & Subway Door safety. This detection can be achieved through the use of either laser- or infrared-based sensors, both which provide highly-dependable and defined zones that accurately detect the presence of a person or object within the doorway.
Both motion and presence detection on a Train, Tram & Subway Doors can be achieved through the use of a single sensor. Sensor patterns can be configured to meet the specific layout of a train car and the product is both compact and unobtrusive.
