Bottom Sensing Edges
Sensing edges provide entrapment protection for motor-operated doors by offering an auto reverse or auto stop feature. The Bottom Sensing Edge stops and reverses the door upon contact with an obstruction.
Attached to the leading edge of motor-driven doors, our electrically activated sensing edges offer the most reliable reversing feature available. Our exclusive construction contains two completely flexible, conductive contact elements separated by perforated foam. When touch-activated, the soft foam cushion inside the sensing edge compresses, causing the internal contacts to meet and immediately send an electrical signal to stop or reverse the motor.
As an added feature, the sensing edge provides a secure, weather-tight seal and conforms to the floor surface. Sensing edges allow for added safety and peace of mind.
The Safe-T-Beam? is an optional safety device that senses an obstruction and signals the operator to stop or reverse the door. These STBs are UL325 compliant and listed to be used with our X-Series Commercial Operators.
The VITECTOR? NEMA 4/4X OPTOEYE is a set of infrared transmitter and receiver safety sensors constructed of durable materials to withstand the toughest environments including commercial and industrial applications. This photo eye system satisfies the requirement of a monitored external entrapment device and is UL325 compliant and listed to be used with our X-Series Commercial Operators. Another option available is the Monitored Retro-Reflective Photo-eyes.
Reflective Photo Eye
This versatile, reflective photo-eye is designed to withstand the challenges of heavy duty commercial and industrial applications. This photo-eye utilizes interference reduction technology or red light technology, which reduces interference from ambient lighting and infrared sensors often encountered around industrial door openings. In addition these monitored retro-reflective photo eyes feature technology that enables these sensors to further reduce interference from reflective surfaces. Ideal for heavy duty door applications.
The reflector photo eye has a range working distance from 5ft. to 35ft. (1.6m to 10.6m). The operation temperature for this product is -22o F 140o F (-30o C to 60o C). The terminal interface is monitored with 2-wire and comes with a connection cable of 6 1/2 ft. (2m), fine stranded, with a wire size of 24 (0.25mm2) AWG. The reflective photo eye comes with a polarized reflector that is placed on the opposite side of the door and is attached to the door with a snap-on installation requiring no wiring.
The Fire Sentinel? is a UL-listed, time-delay door release device that directs a fire door?s closure in an emergency situation.
The adjustable alarm time delay is factory set at 10 seconds but can be adjusted using a dipswitch to change the time for anywhere between 10-60 seconds. The auxiliary 24v DC output can be used to activate additional power devices. The Fire Sentinel comes with back-up power to avoid automatic closure during power failures. It has an ADA sounder/strobe warning before the door closes to alert people that the door is about to close. The fail-to-close safety timer gives you additional assurance of the maxium possible clo?sure. The device will cause the door to stop if there is an obstruction in its pathway. The floor-level trouble indicator provides a visual indication of trouble from the floor.
The Fire Sentinel can be used with these commercial fire-rated doors: 630 , 631, 634, 635, 640, 641, 660, 661, or 662.??
Auxiliary Output Module
Expand the features of your X-Series Commercial Operator to integrate with other devices such as lights, monitoring systems and more with the Auxiliary Output Module. This optional component board provides dry relay contacts at door limit positions, as well as lamp output contacts and a selectable Americans with Disabilities Act output to sound a horn or run a flashing light. The module is installed in the operator electric box and connects to the main circuit board through an expansion port connector.?
Monitored Edge Interface Module
The UL 325 2010 compliant Monitored Edge Interface Module allows the operator to monitor the sensing edge; providing advanced safety and security to the door system. This module serves as an interface between two-wire monitored sensing edges and our X-Series operators. The module installs easily and is automatically recognized by our operators.
To maintain UL 325 2010 compliance when using a sensing edge as a primary safety device you must use either the Monitored Edge Interface Module or the Timer To Close Module.
Timer to Close Module
Provides an automatic door closing feature that is easily installed and automatically recognized by the operator system. The Timer to Close feature can be selected to start when the door is opened from inputs such as the open button on the wall control, optional radio control input or auxiliary open input via an optional device. The module is installed in the operator electronic box and connects to the main circuit board through an expansion port connector.
Easily expand the features of your commercial operator with an optional Timer to Close Module board. The Timer to Close Module provides an automatic door closing feature that is easily installed and automatically recognized by the operator system.
