Easy alignment procedure and reliable detection even in harsh conditions.

The PD140 sensors allow the detection of vehicles and persons, so preventing the door or gate to move.

The sturdy aluminium and polycarbonate housing protects the sensors against vandalism.

At a maximum distance of up to 60 metres between the sensors, the optical alignment can now be easier and quicker by means of the APD140-LA01 green laser alignment tool, resulting in significant time saving.

While designing these sensors we have focused on reliable detection especially in harsh outdoor conditions, where fog, rain, snow and dust might interfere, the  aim of this launch is to further strengthen our position in the Doors market by providing reliable and innovative photoelectric sensors which are compliant with the European regulations EN12453, EB12445, EN12978 as well as North American regulations UL325 and UL508.
