BEA’s New IS40XL Industrial Door Sensor for Lower Mounting Heights
Sensor features wider activation zone for mounting heights between 6.5 and 11.5 feet
Pittsburgh, Pa. (January 26, 2012) – BEA’s new IS40XL sensor for automatic industrial doors uses active infrared and microwave technologies cooperatively to provide accurate presence and motion detection on new or existing doors. The overhead mounted sensor replaces labor-intensive induction loops and is intended for use on shorter doors.
The IS40XL (extra low mounting) is designed to achieve a wider activation zone for mounting heights between 6.5 and 11.5 feet. It also offers a shallower activation zone depth, often times critical for smaller doors or confined spaces. The sensor is immune to subtle door vibrations and environmental conditions, allowing for safe and efficient operation.
The XL is the newest addition to BEA’s IS40 series of industrial automatic door sensors. The standard IS40 can be mounted on doors from 8 to 16 feet high, and uses up to 40 spots of infrared in order to provide presence detection. The IS40P is designed for applications requiring only presence detection. It comes equipped with nine pre-programmed pattern configurations and various learn time settings for maximum compatibility. All IS40 versions have been developed within NEMA 4 rated enclosures.
