The OPTEX OA-AXIS T is the new automatic door standard for use on sliding doors based on the active infrared technique. The OA-AXIS T has been developed as a combination sensor for threshold safety and activation. The OA-AXIS T complies with the latest European and local regulations as EN 16005 and DIN 18650, tested and approved by the German test organization TÜV. Due to its variety of output options, the OA-AXIS T meets the requirements in various markets.
The OPTEX OA-AXIS T is the world’s first door sensor based solely on the active infrared technique, combining activation and safety in one sensor. By using the unique OPTEX presence detection technique, the OA-AXIS T ensures maximum safety around the threshold while simultaneously providing a large motion detection area for the door activation.
The active infrared presence detection of the OA-AXIS T 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. The OPTEX OA-AXIS T has been tested and approved by the German test organization TÜV and complies with the German DIN 18650 and European Norm EN 16005.
- Motion detection
The large detection area provides rapid detection of any traffic, including trolleys, approaching from any angle. The sensor’s enhanced pattern depth enables it to detect people and objects farther away and allows 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 I: 1 relay output for activation and safety
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.
