Product Details

The Optex OA-72C active infrared door sensor is specially designed for discreet ceiling installation. It performs well as activation and safety for any type of automatic door, and its large pattern can easily be adjusted to different door configurations.


The first two rows of active infrared provide presence detection, which holds the door open as long as a person or object is in the pattern, even if they stop or pause.
