The technology of the Optex OAM-Dual II sensors is the new sensing standard for sliding doors. The sensor combines active infrared and microwave technology. The OAM-Dual II provides safety around the door and through the threshold. At the same time the microwave makes sure that a comfortable opening is guaranteed at all times.
The active infrared presence detection offers 2 rows of safety in front of the threshold. These can be set very accurately and can be moved 6° towards or away from the door. The Bluezone/Lookback functionality offers additional safety as the extra row of presence detection looks directly into the threshold. This Bluezone row will be automatically shut off when the complete presence detection area is cleared and the doors start to close. The installation of safety beams is no longer mandatory.
The large microwave motion detection area provides fast detection for any traffic, approaching from any angle, which allows the door to open conveniently. The presence and motion detection areas can be adjusted independently. By selecting a dipswitch, the active infrared detection area can be set to safety only or to safety and activation. The uni-directional function, allows the doors to close faster when traffic is moving away from the door, this will contribute to significant energy saving.
The OAM-DUAL II sensor can be mounted up to 3,5 meters high and offers 2 relay output contacts; one relay for safety and a second relay for motion/activation.
Installation time can be reduced to a minimum by using easy to set switches and shutters, therefore the sensor can be quickly adjusted for many different applications. To adjust the presence detection area the use of an Optex Infrared finder is recommended.
Optex automatic door sensors guarantee premium performance and include a 3-year full replacement warranty.
