Product Details

The OPTEX OA-AXIS series is the new automatic door standard for use on sliding doors based on the active infrared technology. The OA-AXIS series is developed as a combination sensor for threshold safety and activation.


The OPTEX OA-AXIS series is the world’s first door sensor based solely on the active infrared technique, combining activation and safety into one sensor. By using the unique OPTEX presence detection technique, the OA-AXIS series provides maximum safety around the threshold while simultaneously offering a large motion detection area for the door activation.


The active infrared presence detection of the OA-AXIS series can be set very accurately and can be moved 6° toward or away from the door. The installation of safety beams is no longer mandatory. The sensor detects a person or object and holds the door open for as long as they are in or near the threshold area, even if they stop or pause.

Motion Detection

The large detection area enables rapid detection of any traffic, including trolleys, approaching from any angle. The sensor’s enhanced pattern depth means it can detect people and objects farther away, thus allowing the door to open conveniently for them. The presence and motion detection areas can be adjusted independently.


By offering different types of output contacts the OA-AXIS series meets the requirements and local standards in many different markets.
OA-Axis II : 1 relay for safety and a second relay for motion/activation
OA-Axis T
: 1 relay for motion and activation and an Opto coupler (NPN) in/output for safety.

Easy Adjustment

Installation time can be minimized using the easily set switches and shutters, meaning the sensor can be quickly adjusted for many different applications. The use of an OPTEX Infrared finder is recommended to adjust the presence detection area.


Optex automatic door sensors guarantee premium performance and include a 3-year full replacement warranty.
