Intelligent solution for industrial doors

Robust radar sensors detect motion and presence

If hall doors have to be operated frequently for logistical reasons, an automatic opening system is recommended. However, not every solution meets the requirements or copes with the problems that arise in practice. To automatically open and close a hall door, one company uses a system with an induction loop laid in the floor covering of the hall and in the asphalt in front of the door. As soon as a vehicle, e.g. a forklift, is on the induction loop, the door to the hall opens. Once the vehicle has passed the loop, the gate closes with a certain time delay. The system works in the same way via the induction loop embedded in the concrete floor of the hall, so that the gate also opens and closes automatically when a vehicle leaves the hall.
